|"Take that Celtics!"|
The Knicks' first-round loss to Boston last spring still stings Carmelo Anthony.
"I think that's in the back of our minds," Anthony said of the Celtics' 4-0 sweep of the Knicks in the 2010 postseason. "For me personally, I was on a personal vendetta because I get tired of hearing it. We get tired of hearing it."
The Knicks allowed the Celtics to score an average of 107 points per game in two playoff games at Madison Square Garden last spring. Boston beat the Knicks soundly in the final two games of series, winning by an average of 19.5 points.
Anthony said Wednesday that the loss to the Celtics provided motivation for him and the Knicks to improve on defense.
