BOSTON (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points and the New York Knicks moved to the brink of their first playoff series victory in 13 years, routing the Boston Celtics 90-76 on Friday night in Game 3 of the first-round series.

Quickly taking out the crowd out of it in the first NBA game here since the Boston Marathon bombings, the Knicks built a 16-point halftime lead and now are on the verge of taking out the Celtics.

Raymond Felton added 15 points and 10 assists for the Knicks, who haven't advanced in the playoffs since reaching the 2000 Eastern Conference finals. They will go for the sweep here Sunday afternoon.

Jeff Green scored 21 points for the Celtics, who will try to become the first NBA team to win a series after trailing 3-0.
