This was a perfect loss for the tanking Knicks. Young players like Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke and Frank Ntilikina got plenty of minutes (all played at least 24) and the Knicks competed for most of the night but ended up with a loss.

Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 31 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in a 121-112 win over the Knicks. Jaylen Brown added 24 points on 10-for-17 shooting. Trey Burke led New York with 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting.

On how things played out with New York, Al Horford said of Joakim Noah, a life-long Knicks fan: "It's hard. Because ever since I've met him I've always known him wanting to be a Knick, be here in New York. And I feel like he really, he's an example of what New York is. He really embraces that and it was just tough for him not be able to play to his potential here and do the things that he wanted to do." Horford and Noah were teammates at Florida.

Al Horford believes his ex-Florida teammate Joakim Noah can help a playoff team: "He's just about the right things. He's the kind of guy you want around. I feel like he can help any team." Noah is not with the Knicks as the club and player try to figure out a way to get him off of the roster. It's difficult because Noah is owed $38 million over the next two seasons. He's away from the team after a heated argument with coach Jeff Hornacek.

Knicks say Luke Kornet will play for Westchester today and Isaiah Hicks will play for the Knicks vs. Boston. The idea is to manage the amount of time (45 days) 2-way players can spend with NBA club before the contract has to be converted to a traditional NBA deal.

Charles Oakley tweets that he wasn't taking a shot at Frank Ntilikina with his praise of Dennis Smith Jr.: "Not a shot at Frank - love his game! Just showing my support for Dennis."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Charles Oakley told Knicks draft pick Frank Ntilikina that he has a bright future when he met him at All Star weekend. This morning, he posted a picture with Dennis Smith Jr., the player NYK passed on in the draft, and said he would have been a great Knick. The guess here is that Oakley, who has a pending civil suit against owner James Dolan and Madison Square Garden, wants to get a rise out of Knicks or the organization.
