Wednesday, November 21 finds the New York Knicks meeting up vs. the Boston Celtics as the teams meet for the second time this 2018-19 regular season. New York lost lost a close one to Portland 118-114 marking their sixth in a row and eight of the past nine. This is the fourth time this season the Knicks are playing in a back to back series.
The Celtics meanwhile lost an extremely competitive match in Charlotte behind yet another stand out performance (43 points) by Kemba Walker.
Last season, the Celtics took three of the four meetings between the squads and are one game up on their season series this year. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks in 291 of their 472 matches.
New York Knicks
Tim Hardaway Jr. continues to perform and put up numbers which will either build his stock with the Knicks as a piece of the core. Or he could become trade bait, particularly if the Knicks want to get in on the Washington Wizards fire sale.
Hardaway is averaging 23.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Enes Kanter is also delivering off the bench leading the team with 11.9 rebounds per game.
In the loss to Orlando Kanter produced a double-double of 21 points and 19 rebounds.
Still missing their star the team from the Mecca ranks 25th offensively and 28th defensively.
Moreover, the Knicks are decimated by injury. Franchise star Kristaps Porzingis remains out recovering from his ACL tear and is expected out at least until mid February. Also out indefinitely are Lance Thomas (knee and Courtney Lee (neck). The one player who might return for Wednesday is Mario Hezonja (illness) who has been one of the Knicks bright spots this season.
After repeated denials from Brad Stevens that Gordon Hayward wouldn’t join the reserves the Head Coach acquiesced in Charlotte. The move which was suggested by the recovering star did pay dividends in terms of increasing the offense.
Six players scored in double digits with Marcus Morris one point from making it seven.
Kyrie Irving appears to be fully healthy again having scored no less than 17 points in the teams last ten games (he missed one for personal reasons). Still, it’s taking huge scoring performances from Irving for Boson to win such as 43 versus Toronto and 39 versus Phoenix.
The key will be to get Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Al Horford also producing consistently to improve the offense.

While it would seem the Knicks offer the perfect fodder for the Celtics ailing offense 14 points is a big spread. However, New York are on the second night of their back to back and playing at the difficult Garden. That said, the Knicks did push the Bulls to double overtime in a similar situation.
