Boston Celtics – New York Knicks Feb 1/19 Prediction
The struggling New York Knicks will have their hands full when they host the Boston Celtics on Friday in Madison Square Garden. The Celtics are one of the NBA’s best teams, while the Knicks are near the bottom.
New York has lost a whopping ten-straight games, and are a miserable 4-17 on their home floor. They rank last in the NBA in shooting percentage as well as assists. Their leading scorer, Tim Hardaway Jr, is shooting under 40% from the field, and their top rebounder, Enes Kanter, is being benched for some reason.
Boston, meanwhile, is starting to get their act together, winning six of their last ten games. At 31-19, they currently rank fifth in the Eastern Conference. They are, however, a weak road team, only going 11-13 away from Boston this season. While star Gordon Hayward is still not himself after coming back from his horrific injury last season, point guard Kyrie Irving has been his usual superstar self.
The Celtics lead the season series two games to one. This is their last matchup this season.
