Although the Knicks failed to sweep the Celtics Sunday in Boston, there were still plenty of good things that came from Game Four. After falling behind by 20 points early in the third quarter, Raymond Felton led a furious comeback that had them trailing by just three entering the fourth. With J.R. Smith suspended for the game, and Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett possibly playing their last games in Boston, the Knicks almost stole the victory and completed the sweep.

Let’s take a look at five takeaways the Knicks can feel good about as they come home for Wednesday’s game five back home in Madison Square Garden.
