“They’re well-coached and they know what they have to do,” Martin said. “They’re going to come here, they’re going to scratch, claw, fight, you know what I’m saying, in order to get a game. So we’ve got to be prepared for whatever.”

Most importantly, Boston needs to run a cleaner offense, with better spacing and much smarter passes.

“A lot of times we found ourselves _ I wouldn’t say discombobulated, but uneven at times,” Garnett said.

The Knicks haven’t held a 2-0 lead since 2000, the last year they won a series. They realize how difficult it will be to win Game 3 on Friday in Boston, when the Celtics will be playing in front of their home fans for the first time since the Boston Marathon bombings, so they don’t want to miss their chance to take command Tuesday.

“Tomorrow we’re approaching this game as a must-win,” said Anthony, who scored 36 points in Game 1. “Here on our home court, we want to win this basketball game. We don’t want to go back to Boston 1-1.”
