Knicks staying focused with 2-0 lead

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Confidence could come easy, given the way the Knicks won the first two games of the their first-round series against the Celtics. They held the Celtics to 8 points in the final quarter of Game 1 and 23 points in the second half of Game 2. There was little Boston could do to dent New York’s defense down the stretch in either game.

And yet, the Knicks said all the right things after practice Thursday before traveling to Boston for Friday’s Game 3. They acknowledged that winning on the road isn’t easy, especially when that home is Boston, especially with what the city has endured since the Celtics last played a home game.
