After three straight losses, Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens changed up his starting lineup and it worked. The C's beat up the New York Knicks 108-97.

The new-look lineup included rookie Marcus Smart at the point and two other guards, Avery Bradley and Evan Turner. Jared Sullinger and Brandon Bass were the bigs.

Bradley scored 26 and Sullinger scored 22 to lead the C's. The Celtics are 17-30.

Carmelo had 21 for the hapless Knicks who are now 10-39.
