Friday night takes us to TD Garden in Boston where the New York Knicks open up the weekend and they will take on the Boston Celtics here in this one. The NBA regular season is in full swing and this is the third time these two teams will be meeting here on Friday night in Boston. They will meet one more time after this game here on Friday night and both of these teams come into this game looking for a huge momentum boost in the early part of the regular season. Both teams are off to a decent start of the year as both teams come into this game with winning records and they find themselves currently occupying playoff spots within the Eastern Conference as well.
It has been a solid start of the year for the New York Knicks, and they will be looking to maintain that momentum with a victory here on Friday night on the road against the Boston Celtics. The New York next surprised the league last season with their solid season and then they picked up an upset of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the postseason to add to that. They will be looking to build off of that momentum, and put together a very successful regular season, and make another playoff appearance this time, hopefully as favorites in the opening couple rounds of the postseason.
If they maintain the pace they are playing right now they will finish with a pretty respectable record and they will get a top five seed in the Eastern Conference, depending on how the rest of the season shakes out. Despite the solid basketball New York has been playing two of their eight losses have come against the Boston Celtics says they have yet to pick up a victory against Boston and they only have two more opportunities to do so including this game in Boston on Friday night. They will be looking to turn the tide in this series and pick up their first victory against the Boston Celtics here on Friday night on the road at TD Garden. It would be a massive momentum boosting victory for this New York Knicks team throughout the early part of the year if they could find a way to get the job done here in Boston on Friday.

It has been an incredible start to the season for the Boston Celtics, and they will be looking to maintain that momentum with another quality performance here on Friday night at home against the New York Knicks. Boston has been a legitimate contender for the NBA championship of the last several years, and despite appearing in one NBA finals over that span, they have yet to reach their ultimate goal of winning an NBA title. They will be hoping that this year is the year that that changes and as long as they maintain the pace they are playing at throughout the early part of the season they will likely be the favorites heading into the postseason if this continues.
Boston comes into this game with 15 victories through their first 20 games of the regular season and two of those victories have come against the New York Knicks this season as well. They will be looking for their 16th victory of the year here on Friday night at home as they look for their third victory of the season and they look to officially clinch the season series against the New York Knicks. Boston will be looking to bounce back from their loss of the Indiana Pacers and their previous game as they look to get right back into the win column here at home on Friday night against the New York Knicks. The Celtics had no problem bouncing back throughout the season and I don’t see why this game would be any different here on Friday night against a very familiar opponent that they’ve already defeated twice this season.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Boston is 9-0 at home this season
- Boston is 2-0 against the Knicks this season
- Boston Average Margin Of Victory is 10 vs NY Knicks
I expect this to be a close and competitive game throughout the majority of the contest here on Friday night at TD Garden in Boston. However, in the end, I do look for the Boston Celtics to pull away and pick up their third victory of the regular season against the New York Knicks here, and this one on Friday night as well. As I look for Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to take this game over late in the fourth quarter, and lead the Boston Celtics to a much-needed victory, and help them bounce back from their loss to the Indiana Pacers and their previous game. I also look for Boston to clinch the season series by way of their victory here on Friday night with their third consecutive win of the season over the New York Knicks.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
