|Evan Fournier: Explodes for career high|
Fournier totaled 41 points (15-25 FG, 10-14 3Pt, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 42 minutes during Thursday's 108-105 victory over Boston.
The Scoop: Fournier was held scoreless Tuesday, but he bounced back in a big way against the Celtics, connecting on 10 threes en route to 41 points -- both career highs. The 6-foot-7 shooting guard also grabbed a season-high eight boards as he fueled the Knicks to a furious 25-point comeback. On the season, Fournier is posting a pedestrian 12.8 points and 2.6 rebounds per game, but he's averaging 35.0 points and 6.3 rebounds across three matchups with the Celtics this season. Fournier will look to continue his strong play against his former team when the Knicks head to Boston for a rematch Saturday, which will be the last meeting between these two teams during the regular season.
