8 a.m. ET: The last team to beat the Celtics prior to their current two-game win streak was the Knicks. Jeff Green and company have a chance to change that Sunday.
In a special Easter edition of the NBA’s best traditional rivalry, the Celtics (38-34) and the Knicks (45-26) will face off at Madison Square Garden. This is the fourth and final meeting of the year between these teams, and the Celtics need a victory to salvage a split.
Jason Terry and Shavlik Randolph came up big for the Celtics in their last game, while Green and Paul Pierce put together strong performances that are becoming commonplace for them. The Celtics will need similar efforts to beat the Knicks, who have won seven consecutive games despite dealing with injuries to a number of key players. The Knicks have not lost at home since March 9, so the Celtics have their work cut out for them.
