Celtics Vs. Knicks Score Update: Carmelo Anthony, New York Lead Boston 56-51 At Haltime

Camerlo Anthony has 12 points while Amare Stoudemire has 10 as the New York Knicks lead the Boston Celtics, 56-51, at halftime at the TD Garden in Boston.

The Knicks have been outshooting the usually sharp shooting Celtics 56.4% to 41.4% from the field. New York is also shooting well from beyond the arc with an even 50% three point field goal percentage. The C's have been shooting a woeful 33.3% from three point land.

Despite the overwhelming shooting advantage for New York, the Celtics are still hanging around in this one. Brandon Bass is the high point man for the C's with 12 points from the floor. Bass has been filling in for Jermaine O'Neal, who was forced to miss yet another game with injury.

Paul Pierce has 10 points from the floor and has one of two three pointers made by the Celtics. Kevin Garnett checks in with eight points while Ray Allen has a lone three points. Rajon Rondo appears to be on his way to another triple-double, as he has nine points, eight assists and four rebounds at the break.

One thing the Celtics are doing right is containing Jeremy Lin. The Knicks point guard only has two points and has a game high four turnovers. The Celtics will have to continue what they are doing and make sure that Linsanity doesn't take over this game. Another thing that they will have to do is get Ray Allen going from three point land. He's taken one shot from long range, and could not connect.
