Boston is catching some breaks this season. When they faced Oklahoma City Kevin Durant was out, when they faced Washington John Wall was out…
And when Denver came into the Garden tonight, Carmelo Anthony was out.
He had an inflamed right knee, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. It was bothering him last night in Charlotte, when he shot 8-21, so the Nuggets decided to rest him on the back-to-back.
The Celtics hit their first seven shots from the floor, just to make matters worse for Denver.
