At the end of the first half, Boston owned a 54-35 lead over the Knicks. With 1:18 left in the fourth, Raymond Felton gave the Knicks their first lead of the day at 84-82 on a pull-up jumper just inside the key. Kevin Garnett immediately tied the game and after a couple misses from Carmelo and another one from Paul Pierce, the game went to overtime.
Felton had the second half we almost remembered, but Jason Terry had the overtime we will remember. He gave the Celtics the lead on a three-pointer with 1:30 left, maintained that lead on another jumper on the next possession and iced the game with a layup. In all, he scored nine of Boston's 13 points in overtime.
Terry may have only delayed the inevitable but there will be a Game 5 on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. Maybe the series really will start then.
