What to Know
The Boston Celtics are 14-4 against the New York Knicks since December of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Sunday. Boston and New York will face off in an Atlantic Division battle at 3:30 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden. Boston is the favorite here -- although they were the favorites in their last contest, too, so the odds might count for a little less.
In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 37 turnovers, the Brooklyn Nets took down the Celtics 112-107 last week. Boston got a solid performance out of SF Jayson Tatum, who had 26 points along with nine rebounds; unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the win.
Meanwhile, New York was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap as they fell 101-95 to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Knicks were up 31-18 at the end of the first quarter but couldn't hold on to the lead.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the victory. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
