NEW YORK (AP) Usually at home when the playoffs start, the New York Knicks will be on their home court this time.

Julius Randle capped his All-Star season with 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, and the Knicks beat the Boston Celtics 96-92 on Sunday to clinch the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
