Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Jayson Tatum and Boston Cool Off the Knicks?

The New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics will clash from TD Garden on Sunday night for a prime-time affair on ESPN. The Knicks come into this game as the hottest team in the NBA. The Knicks have won eight games in a row, and their most recent win was a thrilling one over the Miami Heat. Things are looking good in the Big Apple, and a win today over the Celtics would make it look even better.

Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks Prediction

However, that will be no easy task, as Boston represents the second-best record in the East at 45-19. The Celtics have been led by a string season by Jayson Tatum, who you could make an MVP case for. Their role players have stepped up along the way, and overall, this has just been an extremely efficient team.

The Celtics had been in first place all year until the last week when the Milwaukee Bucks soared past them. A Celtics win tonight would tie things back up for first place in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics come into this game coming off a brutal loss on Friday night versus the Nets in a game in which they blew the largest lead of any NBA team this year. 

I am going to back the Celtics on the spread tonight. This is a perfect get-right spot for the Celtics at home, facing a Knicks team that is due for some regression. New York has been red hot as of late, but this is a tough spot for them at the end of the week, facing one of the best teams in basketball, which should be extra motivated for this game tonight. Let’s stay hot on the hardwood and cash in!
