Last time

The Celtics ripped the Knicks' hearts out yet again with a 96-86 win in MSG on March 21. They outscored NY 33-17 in the final quarter. This was a rough one. Ray Allen and Carmelo Anthony both suffered significant cuts to the head.

This time

Get it to:  Jeff Green

With Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and KG likely to ride the bench again, I want to see Jeff Green jack up 25 shots. Let's feed the beast and hope he can gain some confidence heading into the playoffs.

Gotta stop: Bill Walker

I'm assuming Mike D'Antoni will rest most of his big guns as well. Why Bill Walker? Because ex-Celtics tend to excel against the green.

The Wild Card: Fan Appreciation

It's the last home game of the regular season. Sure, it may have that pre-season feeling, but I'm willing to bet the Cs second and third units will play hard for the home crowd.

How we see it goin' down

 Celtics win 106-98 in a game that means absolutely noting.

    Have you ever predicted that the Celtics would lose? Haha I don’t think I’ve ever seen it.

    not playing the starters the final two games made these last two games a lot more appealing to watch for me.
