New York Knicks Form

New York come into this matchup on the back of a loss but having won seven of their last 10 games.

The Knicks went on a three-game win streak in mid-November, and then bounced back from a 117-110 loss to Minnesota with a 100-98 tournament win against New York.

They failed to follow that up as they then lost 116-113 to Phoenix, but they did respond to that loss by winning the next three.

New York beat Charlotte 115-91 in the tournament to advance, and then downed Detroit 118-112 before heading to Toronto to beat the Raptors 119-106.

The Knicks failed to make it four-in-a-row though, losing 146-122 at Milwaukee in the In-Season Tournament quarter-finals.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston also come into this game in good form despite a loss last time, having won 10 of their previous 13 games.

The Celtics enjoyed a six-game win streak in mid-November that was eventually ended by a 121-118 overtime defeat in Charlotte.

They bounced back to beat Milwaukee 119-116 in a big Eastern Conference clash, only to then suffer a 113-96 defeat in Orlando.

Boston’s response was a three-game win streak that saw them beat Atlanta 113-103, Chicgao 124-97 and Philadelphia 125-119 at home.

The Celtics were unable to keep that run going though, as they were beaten 122-112 at Indiana in the In-Season Tournament quarter-finals.

Verdict

Boston are covering regularly at home and comfortably dispatched New York at the TD Garden last month, so we are riding with the Celtics in this one.
