Celtics/Knicks Game Preview



Celtics (35-19) vs. Knicks (19-36)

Game time: 7:30pm, TD Garden. TV – CSN, Radio – WEEI-AM (850)

Team Leaders

Bos: Pierce – 17.9                  Knicks: David Lee – 20.3

Bos: Perkins – 8.1                  Knicks: David Lee – 11.4

Bos: Rondo – 9.7                    Knicks: Chris Duhon – 6.2

Who'll go off:  Ray Allen. Do the Knicks have anyone that can cover him? With Tracy McGrady questionable (knee), Eddie House could get the start. Neither can hang with Ray. I also like the Celtics bigs vs David Lee and Danilo Gallinari.

Who needs to be stopped: Al Harrington. He's a tough matchup for the Celtics second unit, i.e. Glen Davis, Rasheed Wallace and Brian Scalabrine.

The C's will lose if…  Turnovers, turnover, turnovers.

Miscellany:  The Knicks are coming off an 83-67 loss to Milwaukee. They've lost 7 in a row and 9 of their last 10. The Celtics have 5 straight home wins vs the Knicks. Ray Allen averaged 23.3 points and shot 9-for-18 on 3-point attempts in his last three games.

Prediction: Celtics 105 – Knicks 88
