Celtics vs. Knicks Prediction

The New York Knicks vs. the Boston Celtics will duel things out from TD Garden in Massachusetts on Thursday night for a prime-time affair. The Knicks enter play representing a record of 26-23 on the season. That is good for No. 7 in the Eastern Conference, and the Knicks should be happy with where they are right now. This is a team that really struggled a season ago and missed out on the postseason. They were aggressive in the off-season, and they landed star guard Jalen Brunson. Brunson has delivered in a big way this year, putting up massive numbers for the Knicks. Brunson is averaging 22.3 points per game and 6.2 assists along the way. Julius Randle has also really stepped up his play this season after a down year averaging a team-high 24.6 points per game.

Boston, meanwhile, represents the best record in the NBA, but they enter this game loser of two in a row. Orlando beat Boston, and they followed that up with a hard-fought loss in Miami. The Celtics have been led by an MVP-caliber season by star forward Jayson Tatum, scoring 31.0 points per game. Jaylen Brown has also turned in a strong campaign, and he is expected to suit up tonight after missing the last game with an injury. The Celtics enter this game as an eight-point home favorite. 

I am all over the Celtics in this spot tonight. I know people may look at a number like eight and think it is too many, but in today's NBA, this is not a large number. Boston is coming off a pair of losses, and this is the perfect get-right spot for them at home tonight. I expect Boston to be fully healthy for this game tonight and dominate the game on both sides of the ball. The Celtics match up with the Knicks very well, and they will take care of business for us tonight. Let’s stay hot!
