The Boston Celtics will host game 1 of their first round series against the New York Knicks in the TD Garden tonight. This is probably the most exciting first round matchup, for neutral viewers and for fans.
The Celtics organization is seasoned when it comes to preparing for a playoff series, the same cannot be said of the Knicks. While Boston will be looking to make a run to its third finals appearance in the last four years, the Knicks will experience a taste of the playoffs for the first time since 2004, when their tri-state rival, the New Jersey Nets, swept them. It has been even longer than that since Boston and New York, two historically tense sports cities, have met in the postseason.
Get ready for a very exciting game tonight and of course make sure u check in for the recap & highlights post.
Game starts 7:00 PM/23:00 GMT/01:00 CET
