The New York Knicks broke their five-game NBA release streak in emphatic style on Sunday, keeping the host Celtics on a low season tally in a 105-75 win. Julius Randle scored 20 points and took down 12 rebounds, and RJ Barrett added 19 points and 11 boards for the Knicks, which ruined Celtics All-Star guard Kemba Walker’s season debut, missing the first 11 games with a left knee injury. Walker left in the third quarter with an obvious rib injury, but said he was happy to be back.

Jaylen Brown led the Celtics by 25 points, while Eastern Conference leader Boston was left without Jayson Tatum, who remained in Covid-19 quarantine.

The Knicks never got behind, pushing their lead to a whopping 11 in the first quarter and 15 in the second.
