NEW YORK — The Knicks wore all-black suits Wednesday to Madison Square Garden. They believed they were attending a funeral.
They were dead wrong.
The Celtics are very much alive and kicking after their 92-86 Game 5 win in the first-round playoff series that trimmed the Knicks’ lead in the best-of-seven series to 3-2.
“Well you’re only buried if the casket is closed, so to speak,” Jason Terry said. “But us getting that win opened the door just a little bit. Winning tonight opened it a little bit more. And if we can even this thing up then it’s anybody’s series.”
The series shifts to Boston, where Game 6 will be played Friday night at TD Garden, where the fans are sure to be fired up. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
