Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony called Game 2 against the Celtics a "must win" for the team, according to the New York Post. The Knicks are up 1-0 in the series and look to take a 2-0 lead on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
From the New York Post report:
"We’re approaching this game as a must-win here on our home court," Carmelo Anthony said. "We want to win this basketball game. We don’t want to go back to Boston 1-1. Game 2 is just harder than Game 1. Although we took care of business in Game 1, we still want to come back and not give away this game. This game is more important than Game 1 was."
The series will move to Boston for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday.
