Back in the series, now back to Boston.
The Celtics, winners of the most NBA championships, are two victories from making more history. Kevin Garnett had 16 points and 18 rebounds and the Celtics stayed alive in the NBA playoffs, cutting the Knicks' lead to 3-2 with a 92-86 victory Wednesday in New York.
The Celtics will host Game 6 on Friday night, needing two victories to become the first NBA team to overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a series.
"We just wanted to keep it going," Brandon Bass said.
Bass added 17 points, steadying Boston as it shook off an 11-0 deficit and pulled away in the second half to stop the Knicks again from achieving their first playoff series victory since 2000.
"We didn't panic and that's something we've done, but we didn't," coach Doc Rivers said.
Rockets 107, Thunder 100: James Harden scored 31 points and sank seven 3-pointers while fighting through flu-like symptoms, and visiting Houston beat Oklahoma City to pull within 3-2 in their playoff series.
Harden made the first seven 3s he tried, and Houston led by as many as 16 before fending off a Thunder rally.
Kevin Durant finished with 36 points for Oklahoma City, which must now travel to Houston for Game 6 on Friday night.
Pacers 106, Hawks 83: David West scored 24 points and Paul George had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead Indiana past Atlanta for a 3-2 series lead. The Pacers have all won three home games in the best-of-seven series and are 5-0 at home this season against the Hawks.
Rookie of the Year: The Portland Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard was the unanimous choice as the NBA's Rookie of the Year. Oakland's Lillard, the sixth overall pick in last June's draft out of Weber State, led all rookies with a 19-point scoring average. He also averaged 6.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds.
He broke Stephen Curry's rookie record for 3-pointers in a season, finishing with 185.
"I can't stop smiling," Lillard said when he was awarded the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy.
Lillard is the fourth player in league history to win the Rookie of the Year unanimously, joining Blake Griffin in 2011, David Robinson in 1990 and Ralph Sampson in 1984.
Bucks: The team announced that coach Jim Boylan won't be offered a new contract. Boylan, a longtime assistant of Scott Skiles, took over after Skiles and the Bucks parted ways Jan. 8.
