Boston, Mass. -- Carmelo Anthony's 34 points paved the way for the rejuvenated New York Knicks' fifth straight win, a 116-92 blasting of the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.

The Knicks shot an impressive 52.5 percent and never trailed in matching a season high for consecutive victories. Tim Hardaway Jr. pitched in with 22 points off the bench on a 7-of-11 success rate, with Cole Aldrich coming through with a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds while making a rare start at center.

Wednesday's win closed New York within three games of Atlanta for the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

With star point guard Rajon Rondo held out in the Celtics' second game in as many days, Jeff Green paced Boston with 27 points and Kris Humphries and Jerryd Bayless each finished with 15.
