The Knicks' defense allowed six Celtics to reach double figures. Boston shot a blistering 54 percent from the floor and led by 45 at one point.
"I wish I could explain it," Woodson said after the game. "I didn't see this coming."
The Celtics now lead the Atlantic Division with a 10-12 record. The Knicks are 3 1/2 games back. After winning games on Thursday and Friday by an average of 34 points, many thought the Knicks had turned a corner. Sunday showed they're still stuck in neutral.
The ball movement was stagnant and the perimeter defense was porous. But to Anthony, there was no need to delve into specifics.
"It’s no need for me to try to pinpoint what happened," he said. "[It was] a good old-fashioned ass-whipping to me."
How many more of those can Woodson afford before his job is in jeopardy? Only owner James Dolan can answer that question. For what it's worth, the players refused to lay blame on Woodson after Sunday's blowout.
"It's not on him. It's on the players," Amar'e Stoudemire said. "We had a solid game plan, we just have to go out and execute."
