Knicks confident they can end series at home

The Knicks had just lost a game in which they were up in the final two minutes of regulation, with a chance to end this first-round series. And yet, after the 97-90 overtime loss to the Celtics Sunday, they were hardly bemoaning the defeat. This is the NBA, after all, and they had already taken one game in Boston, to add to their home-court advantage.
