Celtics (35-19) vs. Knicks (19-36)

Game time: 7:30pm, TD Garden. TV – CSN, Radio – WEEI-AM (850)

Team Leaders

Scoring
Bos: Pierce – 17.9                  Knicks: David Lee - 20.3

Rebounding
Bos: Perkins – 8.1                  Knicks: David Lee - 11.4

Assists
Bos: Rondo – 9.7                    Knicks: Chris Duhon – 6.2

Who'll go off:  Ray Allen. Do the Knicks have anyone that can cover him? With Tracy McGrady questionable (knee), Eddie House could get the start. Neither can hang with Ray. I also like the Celtics bigs vs David Lee and Danilo Gallinari.

Who needs to be stopped: Al Harrington. He's a tough matchup for the Celtics second unit, i.e. Glen Davis, Rasheed Wallace and Brian Scalabrine.

The C's will lose if…  Turnovers, turnover, turnovers.

Miscellany:  The Knicks are coming off an 83-67 loss to Milwaukee. They've lost 7 in a row and 9 of their last 10. The Celtics have 5 straight home wins vs the Knicks. Ray Allen averaged 23.3 points and shot 9-for-18 on 3-point attempts in his last three games.

Prediction: Celtics 105 – Knicks 88

    I agree that Al Harrington is the man to watch out for. That, and Lee may try to go at Perk early to get him in foul trouble. They also will obviosuly want to be sure to run out on House. How bad do you think he would like to light it up tonight? Heading out to the Garden in a bit. Go C’s..
