    BOSTON — J.R. Smith scored 32 points, Carmelo Anthony added 29 and the New York Knicks extended their winning streak to five games with a 100-85 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

    The win moved the Knicks into second place in the Eastern Conference, percentage points ahead of the Indiana Pacers.

    The Celtics, who could face the Knicks in the first round of the playoffs, lost their fifth game in a row and remained in seventh.

    The Celtics, playing their second straight game without Kevin Garnett, were led by Jeff Green with 19 points and Paul Pierce with 16.

    But they committed 20 turnovers, while the Knicks, who have the fewest average turnovers in the NBA, had just eight.
