Hi! The Knicks play a SEGABABA tonight. So do the Celtics. They're playing each other! The Celtics have won 3 straight. The Knicks have lost 3 straight. The Celtics defend well and force a lot of turnovers, and they haven't let a weak team beat them in a while. The Knicks are healthy. The Celtics are healthier than they were -- Marcus Smart is back -- but they'll be missing David Lee.
Basically, if New York plays stupid, sloppy, tentative basketball like they did in the second half last night, they're gonna give the ball away for 2 hours and score like 70 points and go home feeling sad. If they keep their shit together ... hey, maybe they'll win!
Tip-off tonight is at 7. 7! Not 7:30! The game's on MSG and NBA TV. This is your game thread. This is Celtics Blog. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread, and please be good brothers and sisters to one another. Go the Knicks!
