The two teams last met in preseason a week ago and the Knicks took that exhibition game and will be looking for a repeat, especially after losing to the Toronto Raptors, 107-88 on Friday night in Montreal.
Boston, in the meantime, is coming into this exhibition on the back of a 115-85 win over the Brooklyn Nets, with Courtney Lee and Paul Pierce both scoring 18 points led the Celtics in the win Thursday night.
Rookie forward Jared Sullinger has also been having a productive preseason, as he currently averages 11 points and seven rebounds per game this preseason.
The Knicks welcome back the return of star forward Amar’e Stoudemire, who made his preseason debut with 18 points and five rebounds after missing the first two games because of a bruised knee.
Carmelo Anthony, who scored 24 points to lead New York in the defeat in Montreal is expected to lead the way again.
However, J.R. Smith, Ronnie Brewer and Marcus Camby are not expected to play in the contest.
