In the regular NBA season, a match between Boston and New York is scheduled to take place at the TD Garden arena on the night of November 14. The game is set to begin at 01:30 Central European Time.
The team has a rich history and is historically one of the strongest in the league. In this season, the Celtics are considered favorites and have started well, winning five of their first five games. After a slight slowdown, with losses to Minnesota in overtime and a narrow defeat to Philadelphia, Boston bounced back by defeating Brooklyn and dominating Toronto. Currently, the Celtics occupy the second position in the Eastern Conference.
New York Knicks
Unlike their upcoming opponent, the Knicks cannot boast such a strong start. However, their performance cannot be considered a failure either. New York is gradually entering the season and maintains a balance of wins and losses, currently holding a playoff spot. The team has five wins and four losses, placing them in fourth position in the East, tied with four other teams.
Interesting facts and the statistics of head-to-head matches
Boston has not lost a single match at home this season. The Knicks have celebrated victories in their last three matches. The teams faced each other in preseason games and have already played one regular-season match, with Boston winning on both occasions.
While the Celtics are considered favorites, both teams have been scoring around 117-129 points in their recent games. Therefore, I suggest betting on the total points being over 220.
