2021-22 Game Thread: Knicks vs. the Mostly Healthy Celtics

We got a rarity tonight! The Knicks host an actually mostly healthy team in the Boston Celtics, who are only missing Paxton Pritchard from their normal rotation.

The Knicks will continue to be without both of their main point guards and also Nerlens Noel, whose conditioning is an issue in his return from COVID protocols.

The Knicks are currently tied in the standings with the Celtics, so this is a big game in their push to move up the standings and get to the play-in game, at the very least (the bottom of the Eastern Conference is wide open right now, so the 7th seed is very attainable)!

Let’s go, Knicks!
