Fournier’s 26-foot shot put the Knicks in front in their opening game of the season with 56.1 seconds left in the second extended period, while Derrick Rose sealed the victory.
Julius Randle topped New York’s scorers with 35 while Jaylen Brown hit 46 for the Celtics assisted by 20 from Jayson Tatum, whose missed jumpshot at the end of the first period of overtime proved costly.
What a Knick debut for @EvanFourmizz.
