Powers in the Eastern Conference face off on Monday night. The Boston Celtics and New York Knicks will play at TD Garden. Boston has a 7-2 record overall this year, with a 4-0 record at home and 2 consecutive victories. The Knicks will take on the second night of a back-to-back series, who currently enjoys a three-game victory streak and has improved to 5-4 overall.
The Knicks have improved their record to over .500 and are now playing well. They have also won each of their last three games by a minimum of 14 points. The Knicks and Celtics have already faced each other in the season’s opening game. In that one, they fell by a narrow margin of 4 points. With 24 points, R.J. Barrett led the Knicks in scoring. Off the bench, Immanuel Quickley scored 24 points as well. Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson will try to improve on their poor shooting performances in the previous game. For the past 3 matches, the Knicks have appeared to be playing exceptionally well. At last, they are finding their rhythm. After a historically poor start to the season, Julius Randle’s performance is finally beginning to show promise. Randle averages 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, as well as 4.3 assists during the current three-game winning run. He has made 44.6% of his field goals over that period. Although that figure is somewhat mediocre, it is a significant improvement over his season-opening percentage.
The Celtics prevailed in their previous two matches and are 7-2 on their current campaign. In those two contests, Boston decisively defeated both the Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets. Jayson Tatum guided Boston to victory over the Knicks previously in the campaign. Tatum led the team in scoring with 34 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. In his first game wearing a Celtics uniform, Kristaps Porzingis excelled. With 8 rebounds, he scored 30 points. Although Jaylen Brown had a difficult game, he has performed admirably this season as a whole. When it comes to scoring, the Celtics are unmatched. They score 120.7 points per game, which ranks them seventh in the NBA. Boston, who shoots threes the third most often per game, will have to perform at its highest level in this match. This season, Tatum, Brown, and Porzingis have all played well; they must continue to do so in this match.
