LeBron James wasn’t kidding when he said Madison Square Garden was rocking. The Knicks fans at MSG were trying to break the sound barrier as Julius Randle led a spirited comeback to take a commanding 11-point lead in the fourth quarter and, eventually, the W. The All-Star finished the game with 35 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists.
But Jaylen Brown had something to say, His 46 points buoyed the Celtics to force overtime, thanks to a Marcus Smart triple at the buzzer.

But in the end, it wasn’t enough. Just as LeBron James said, the players were running on fumes as fatigue took its toll and the Celtics simply ran out of gas to take their first loss of the season.
LeBron James and his Lakers find themselves in a similar 0-1 hole as well. But the beauty of the NBA season is that you can put your last game behind you.
