New York Knicks vs Boston Celtics takes place on Monday night as the Knicks look to bring an end to the Celtics' five straight Atlantic Division titles. The game is scheduled to start at 7.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
This will be the first meeting between the two teams so far this season, and with Carmelo Anthony on fire and with Rajon Rondo suspended, this could be a good opportunity for the Knicks to turn over the Celtics.
Both teams are looking to record their third straight wins, however, with the game taking place at Madison Square Garden the favorites to claim that accolade are the Knicks.
On Saturday the Knicks claimed a 114-106 win at Orlando. The Knicks were trailing by eight points going into the fourth quarter but 16 points by Carmelo Anthony in the final period turned things around and the Knicks stole the win to move to 23-10.
Anthony has been immense this season posting an average of 29.3 points per game, and with many pundits already touting him as an MVP candidate.
The Celtics have set the standard in the Atlantic Division for the past five seasons, but this year they are struggling and are to even at .500, with a record of 16-17. They have been improving however, and with two wins in a row coming into this game their morale would be further boosted by a big win at Madison Square Garden tonight.
