Knicks Vs. Celtics Score Update: New York Up 56-51 At Half

The Celtics are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, so of course the Knicks have somehow painted this game with an All-Star Game tinge. New York shot 56 percent in the first half and lead the Celtics by a score of 56-51 at halftime of their Sunday afternoon showdown.

Carmelo Anthony leads New York with 12 points and two assists while Amar'e Stoudemire added 10 points and five rebounds.

Jeremy Lin has struggled a bit with more turnovers (four) and fouls (three) than points (two). But he's also turned in some typical Jeremy Lin Video Highlights.

Paul Pierce has 10 points and five rebounds -- and this pure embarrassment of Steve Novak -- to show for himself so far.
