Knicks edge Celtics 106-104 on Anthony foul shots
Anthony's free throws give Knicks 106-104 victory over Celtics in season opener
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Carmelo Anthony scored 37 points, including a pair of free throws with the game tied and 16 seconds left, and the New York Knicks survived a seesaw season opener Sunday to beat the Boston Celtics 106-104.

Amare Stoudemire added 21 points and Toney Douglas had 19 for the Knicks, who led by 17 in the first half, trailed by 10 in the fourth quarter, then pulled out a thrilling Christmas victory in the delayed opener to the 2011-12 season.

Rajon Rondo had 31 points and 13 assists, nearly leading the Celtics back without an injured Paul Pierce. But Kevin Garnett missed a jumper just before the buzzer.



Brandon Bass had 20 points and 11 rebounds in his Celtics debut, and Ray Allen added 20 points.
