Recap

Rookie Avery Bradley scored a season-high 20 points and fellow reserve Sasha Pavlovic added 19 as the Boston Celtics completed a four-game season series sweep of the visiting New York Knicks with a 112-102 victory in the regular-season finale for both teams Wednesday night.
 
With playoff seedings decided and the Celtics and Knicks set to square off in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs starting Sunday night in Boston, neither team played a full contingent.
 
The Celtics (56-26) rested All-Star starters Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo.

Amar'e Stoudemire, who missed the last three games with an ankle injury, played for New York (42-40) and scored 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting. Teammates Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups were rested.

Boston scored the first 11 points of the fourth quarter to take a 97-84 advantage, then used a 13-2 spurt to put away the game after New York cut the margin to nine with seven minutes left.
