BOSTON — Detroit's Josh Smith has been on a scoring tear of late for the Detroit Pistons. So, it only made sense for the Pistons to try and get him going early against the Celtics.
Both Rajon Rondo and Carmelo Anthony deny a report -- from Rondo's high school coach -- that 'Melo is recruiting Rondo to sign with the Knicks when he becomes a free agent in 2015.
The Boston Celtics have had their share of big leads only to squander them because they came about too soon. That wasn't the case on Sunday.
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is what most would call a professional scorer.
