Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference will meet here on Thursday night in Boston. Both of these teams will look again as much momentum as possible prior to heading into the postseason. Both Boston and New York have put together solid seasons, and both of them will be considered as a potential contender to win the NBA championship this year as well. This could be a early preview of a playoff series down the line as both of these teams have been playing solid basketball this season, and it would not be a surprise if they met up in the playoffs once again.

The New York Knicks are still riding the wave after their surprising playoff run last season, and they will look to replicate that performance throughout this year’s postseason as well. They have looked like a top team in the conference throughout the regular season, and they will look to finish the year on a high note as they get ready to head into the playoffs, likely on the road for the second consecutive year in a row. Last season they were able to upset the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road in five games and that is something they will look to pull off once again this season. 

The New York Knicks come into this game with 47 victories through their first 79 games of the season. They will look to pick up a crucial 48th victory here on Thursday night on the road in Boston, which has been one of the toughest places to play in the NBA this season. New York currently sits in third place of the conference and they have already clinched their playoff spot. However, the margin for error is so tight so they cannot afford to drop this game if they want to remain in the top three. This feels like a must win game, despite the fact that their postseason fate has been decided prior to them taking the court for this one in Boston on Thursday.

The Boston Celtics have put together an incredible season, and they have been nearly impossible to beat at home this year. They will look to further prove that narrative to be true with another victory here at home on Thursday night against the New York Knicks. Boston has absolutely run away with the number one seed in the Eastern Conference, and they will look to further put a stamp on it with another quality performance here in this one. Boston has already surpassed the 60 win mark on the season and they will look to further add to their total heading into the playoffs. 

Boston has an incredible record of 33-5 at home this season and they will look to grab their 36 victory at home on the year. This is one of the best records at home and a very long time in the NBA and they will have home-court advantage all throughout the postseason. Which should put the rest of the league on notice, as Boston looks to get back to the top of the mountain, and claim yet another NBA championship at the end of the year. Boston comes into this game after dropping their previous game to the Milwaukee Bucks and they will look to get back into the wind column with a much-needed victory here on Thursday night. This will be the fifth and final meeting of the regular season between Boston and New York and the Boston Celtics have won all four previous meetings this season.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Boston is 33-5 at home 

- Boston is 4-0 against New York 

- Boston is 15-1 against the division 

I look for this to be a close and competitive matchup between two of the top teams in the conference here on Thursday night in Massachusetts. But in the end I look for a similar result as we’ve seen the previous four times these two teams have got together this season. As I look for the Boston Celtics to pick up their fifth victory over the New York Knicks this season, and for Boston to cover the spread in the process.
