Evening, vintners! The Knicks have the first of a back-to-back tonight, as the Celtics will be in town for their fourth and final meeting with New York. It'll be on TNT at 8 PM.
Amar'e Stoudemire is still out for the Knicks, but Tyson Chandler will play through a sore leg part. Ray Allen will return for the Celtics. Allen, Rajon Rondo (playing the Knicks on national TV...yikes), Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett will all have to be defended by members of the Knicks, but I'm not really sure who takes who.
Meanwhile, I'm actually going to be in attendance for tonight's game. By the time you read this, I'll probably already be headed into the city. Given the way Knicks-Celtics games usually go, I am more than a little terrified and might soil myself during-- if not before-- tonight's game. Gian'll take care of the post-game stuff, then I'll be by later or in the morning to share my experience.
This is your game thread. This is Celtics Blog. Comment along if you're watching, but please refrain from posting photos, .gifs, illegal streams, and reviews of fondue cruises in the thread. Tip-off, again, is at 8:00. May the Knicks avoid their usual fate.
