The New York Knicks face an odd NBA basketball scheduling quirk as their last game on Saturday came against these very same Boston Celtics. However, the Knick shave a shot at redemption after dropping that contest 119-1087 as three point home dogs. Both teams consistently found the bottom of the basket with Boston burning the Nets at 59% including 13-26 on threes while New York hit at 45.7% and committed 22 turnovers and simply couldn’t get stops. Mindaugas Kuzminskas paced the NYK offense with 18 points and ten boards with Carmelo Anthony scoring 15 points. Sasha Vujacic and Justin Holiday gave New York 13 points apiece while Guillermo Hernangomez netted 12 points and hauled in a contest high 12 rebounds. 

The under is 5-0 in Celtics last 5 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game and the under is 4-0 in Celtics last 4 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game while the under is 12-1 in Celtics last 13 games following a ATS win. T{he over is 5-0 in Knicks last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and the Knicks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game while the Knicks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in New York.

The Boston Celtics have been playing well and just defeated the Kicks so I'm hoping they continue to play well...
