Game Preview: New York Knicks at Boston Celtics

Written by 

New York Knicks (1-1, 1-1 away) @ Boston Celtics (0-3, 0-2 home) Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester, NH at 7:30 pm on NBATV Officials: John Gobble, Brent Barnaky, David Guthrie Line: New York -4.5 (188) Get tickets to tonight's game at Madison Square Garden

For the second time this preseason, the Boston Celtics will host the New York Knicks. Unlike the previous contest, this game will be played at the Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester, New Hampshire. Boston heads into the game as the heavy underdog, as the team is winless so far in the preseason. New York comes into the game on the heels of a Friday night loss against Toronto.

PROBABLE STARTERS 

New York Knicks:

PG: Raymond Felton SG: Iman Shumpert SF: Carmello Anthony PF: Andrea Bargnani C: Tyson Chandler

Boston Celtics: PG: Avery Bradley SG: Courtney Lee SF: Jeff Green PF: Brandon Bass C: Kevin Humphries

INJURIES

Rajon Rondo, OUT (Knee)

 

J.R. Smith, OUT(Suspension)

Amar'e Stoudemire, OUT (Knee)

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Tim Hardaway Jr. - The rookie has played well this season, totaling 29 points over the team's first two contests. Kelly Olynyk - The rookie had his first big game of the pre season last night, as he totaled 13 points and 3 steals. Gerald Wallace - Wallace has played well in his first three games in green, averaging over 12 points per game.

NOTES

The two teams met earlier this preseason on October 9. The game resulted in a 103-102 win for the Knicks.

PREDICTION

I think that the Knicks will be crowned victorious in this one. The Celtics are just too inexperienced at this point in the pre season. The teams has shown very little chemistry and I would be surprised if that changes dramatically tonight.

New York Knicks 90, Boston Celtics 84
