The Celtics meet the New York Knicks are looking forward to breaking a three game losing streak. When they last played together, the Celtics took the win. Boston has been unable to score over 100 points in their last three straight loses, and desperately need to fuel their offense coupled with better defensive fluidity in an effort to go for the win. The Celtics are healthy and injury free with guards Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley leading the offensive game. They have been averaging 21.1 and 14.7 points per game, respectively. While Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart drive the defensive game with both players leading the Celtics in steals with 1.9 and 1.8 per game respectively.
The Knicks on the other hand have been victorious in their last 5 games driven by an aggressive offense. Players like Carmelo Anthony and rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis have been playing strong consistent games with Anthony averaging 21.7 points per game and Porzingis scoring in the double digits on his last six games. If they can keep this up, they may be able to overcome the Celtics, and bring the series to 1-1.
