Current Standings – New York: 45-26, 2nd in the Eastern Conference (11.5 games behind Miami, 1st in Atlantic Division (4.0 games ahead of Brooklyn). Boston: 38-34, seventh in the Eastern Conference (19.0 games behind Miami)

Previous Meeting - This past Tuesday in Boston the Knicks won in convincing fashion by a score of 100-85. There was really never any doubt as to who was the better team in that game as the Knicks took a fourteen point lead into halftime with a thirty point 2nd quarter. J.R. Smith ...

New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire told reporters – including Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York – that his rehab has been “going well,” and he’s aiming to rejoin the team in time for the playoffs."There's no timetable set on my return," he said during a conference call for an upcoming self-documentary. "Hopefully, I can return soon enough...
New York Knicks' center Tyson Chandler has missed several games already due to a bulging disk, which was supposed to keep him out for around a week. Now, the injury seems to be worse than they thought. According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, Chandler may have a pinched nerve in his neck. There is no timetable for his return, yet another blow to an already-depleted Knicks squad...
Former coach/Heat president Pat Riley and Celtics president Danny Ainge go way back to the old Celtics-Lakers rivalry of the 80′s, and there’s apparently some bad blood still flowing…
Ainge said earlier in the week that it was “almost embarrassing that LeBron (James) would complain about officiating,”
Riley didn’t take to kindly to that remark, and released this statement...
For pretty much as long as I can remember, one of the Celtics biggest weaknesses has been rebounding. Last night Shavlik Randolph pulled down 13 boards in 22 minutes. An amazing 7 of them were of the offensive variety; for comparison in the win at Cleveland on Wednesday the C's as a team had a total of 2 offensive rebounds. Here's what Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston...
Pretty humorous AT&T commercial featuring former Celtics Larry Bird and Bill Russell, also former Lakers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
Entering this season many wondered about the role of Jeff Green! How would he play coming off of heart surgery! Would he get enough starts? Could he play at a high level? Would he fit in with the team? Was he worth that trade a few years ago? Well these past few weeks….Jeff Green seems to have answered all those questions with an exclamation point!
First he scored a whopping 42...
Knicks 108, Celtics 89
For the second time this week, the Celtics (38-35) were unable to compete with a team that now owns the longest streak in the NBA. The Knicks (46-26) won their eighth straight on Sunday night as they steamrolled through a porous C’s defense. Boston played well enough on the offensive end, but Without Kevin Garnett in the lineup, they were simply unable to...
he Celtics will not have Kevin Garnett tonight against the New York Knicks as they expected. The center is, however, closer to returning to the court after missing the past four games with ankle inflammation.
Garnett was expected to participate in the team's shootaround Sunday morning at Madison Square Garden, which is an encouraging sign considering the team wanted...
Melo and the Knicks punished Boston from 3-point range.Few things are as aggravating as hearing an opposing crowd chant “Bos-ton sucks,” but one thing that’s worse is knowing that they aren’t wrong. The Celtics, for lack of a better descriptor, sucked tonight. Aside from Jeff Green (and Chris Wilcox on two field goal attempts), no one shot above 50% from the field. The Celtics...
The Celtics drop the back end of a back-to-back and they'll return to Boston having lost both games of this small road trip. The loss tonight means that the Celtics are now 38-36 and it's pretty safe to say they won't be catching the Atlanta Hawks in this year's playoff race. Instead, they might start trending downward as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte...

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...
