A good old-fashioned hoop-hockey doubleheader at the Garden produced two losses for the home clubs.

It opened with the Celtics falling to the New York Knickerbockers, 93-92. The C’s wasted a 35-point performance by Ed Macauley.

And the afternoon basketball game drew a paltry 3,106.

The Bruins skated in to get stymied by the hated Habs of Montreal, 2-0.

Watching the Garden bullgang perform the changeover from hoop to hockey must have been more entertaining than the games.
