NEW YORK -- Another sizzling start for the Celtics, only this time they kept pouring it on. Herman Edwards Youth Jersey . By the time they were finished, they had battered the New York Knicks in the most lopsided NBA game this season. Jordan Crawford made six 3-pointers and scored 23 points, and Boston won its third straight with a 114-73 victory on Sunday. Jared Sullinger added 21 for the Celtics, who jumped to leads of 12-0, 18-1 and 25-3 and improved their Atlantic Division-leading record to 10-12. "It was just fun to get a win like that in here because Ive been on the other side of it a couple times. Its good to get a win against the division," Crawford said. Boston scored the first 14 points Friday in a victory over Denver, though that one eventually got close. Not this time. The Celtics led 58-31 at halftime, then Crawford made four 3-pointers in a 34-point third quarter that extended Bostons lead to 92-56. The Celtics then scored the first four points of the fourth for a 40-point bulge, triggering loud boos that would get louder at the final buzzer. "I think the biggest thing today was coming out after halftime and keeping it going. Thats hard to do," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Boston led by as much as 45 and went on to surpass a 38-point victory by the Clippers over Chicago that had been the NBAs biggest victory this season. The Celtics shot 54 per cent overall and 56 per cent from 3-point range in the rematch of the Knicks first-round playoff victory last season. Carmelo Anthony scored 19 points for the Knicks, who had done to them what they had done to their previous two opponents. Coming off a 30-point victory over Brooklyn and a 38-point rout of Orlando, the Knicks finished with season lows in points and field goal percentage (34.2). "Its a step backwards. I thought we had turned the corner somewhat," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said in taking much of the blame. "I cant have our guys stepping on the floor doing what they did tonight." Starting guards Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert were both 0 for 6, centre Andrea Bargnani was 1 for 7, and Anthony finished 5 of 15. "Its just one of those games where it happens," Felton said. "You hate that it happens, you hate to get beat like that inside your building. It was nasty game, its a bad taste in our mouth right now." New York fell to 0-6 in its orange uniforms, which the Knicks are wearing in weekend home games and also donned at Chicago on Halloween in their road opener. Their three worst losses of the season have come in their alternate colours. "Im not a superstitious guy, so I wont blame it on the 12 oclock game, I wont blame it on the orange uniforms," said Anthony, who won a national championship for the Syracuse Orange. "Regardless, we couldve lost in the white uniforms today. Itd have still been the same thing." Jeff Green and Brandon Bass each scored 16 for the Celtics, who stay in New York for the next couple of days during something of a reunion week. They face Kevin Garnett and Brooklyn Tuesday for the first time in the regular season since last summers blockbuster trade, then return home to face former coach Doc Rivers and the Clippers on Wednesday. It was 12-0 before the Knicks finally got on the board on Anthonys free throw after the Celtics were called for a defensive 3-second violation. Crawford and Sullinger then hit consecutive 3-pointers to make it 18-1 before the Knicks finally made a basket on Anthonys dunk with 5:45 remaining. "We were aggressive on the ball," Green said. "We forced them to play on their heels." The Celtics led 34-11 after one and opened a 26-point lead when Courtney Lee nailed a 3-pointer to open the second. Leading by 17 late in the period, then ran off 12 in a row, Greens three-point play making it 58-29 with 37 seconds remaining. Knicks starters were 3 for 23 in the first half. Notes: The Celtics played just their second division game of the season. They lost to Toronto on opening night. ... With Kenyon Martin resting a sore left ankle, the Knicks gave rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. his first start. Andre Dillard Jersey . The 25-year-old Lu, a regular on the Japan LPGA Tour after giving up her LPGA Tour membership in 2010, shot an 8-under 64 in windy, wet conditions at Kintetsu Kashikojima. DeSean Jackson Eagles Jersey . During the furious first few hours of free agency Tuesday, the team agreed to terms with strong safety Donte Whitner, a Cleveland native who cant wait to play in his hometown. https://www.eaglessportsgoods.com/Womens-Reggie-White-Inverted-Jersey/ .C. - Nick Merkley and Damon Severson each had a goal and two assists as the Kelowna Rockets downed the visiting Seattle Thunderbirds 6-3 on Saturday in Western Hockey League playoff action.CHENNAI, India -- Stanislas Wawrinka and Edouard Roger-Vasselin registered hard-fought wins to set up the final of the Chennai Open on Saturday. Top-seeded Wawrinka saw a resurgent Vasek Pospisil of Canada concede their semifinal at 6-4, 5-5 due to a back strain while Frenchman Roger-Vasselin sweated it out against Spanish player Marcel Granollers for a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 victory. The eighth-ranked Wawrinka was surprised when Pospisil, the fifth seed from Vancouver, withdrew just after he had struck rhythm following some unforced errors at crucial junctures. Wawrinka, the only top-10 player in the fray, won the first set as he went a break up in the fifth game when Pospisil made two errors and double-faulted two times. The script seemed to be following similar lines in the second set as the Swiss managed a break in the seventh game with Pospisil double-faulting twice. But Pospisil broke back for 4-4 but lasted only a few more points. "It was a really tough match and I felt sorry for him because he was playing very well," Wawrinka said. "My focus is to be aggressive. Im playing my best tennnis since last year and I think itll be a good final against Edouard, who is a good friend. Randall Cunningham Womens Jersey. " Wawrinka and Roger-Vasselin are 1-1 from previous matchups. Wawrinka will be playing for his fifth ATP title, and second in Chennai after victory in 2012. Seventh-seeded Roger-Vasselin seeks his maiden ATP title. In his semi, Roger-Vasselin made the only break of the first set in the sixth game and faced stiff resistance thereafter. Granollers went a break up in the third game of the second set and held on, and the decider was also tight. Granollers broke in the first game but failed to hold his serve in the fourth after warding off four break points. Roger-Vasselin seized the initiative with some surprise forays to the net, breaking serve in the sixth game to go 4-2 up in what was to be a decisive lead. Roger-Vasselin expressed relief after the two-hour encounter against his sixth-seeded opponent. "Its great to make the final," he said. "It was a long, tough match both mentally and physically. Im relieved to have won. Its been a great start to 2014." ' ' '
