The division rival Boston Celtics and New York Knicks are set to renew hostilities on Sunday when they meet at Madison Square Garden.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (17-13): Thomas is averaging 31 points on 51.6 percent shooting in five games since returning from a groin injury and has 19 assists over the last two outings. He was Boston’s high scorer in all four meetings with the Knicks last season and poured in 29 in the rout of New York last month. Forward Amir Johnson has been a nice complementary scorer in the last two games with an average of 14 points while guard Avery Bradley has provided at least 12 in every game this season.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (16-13): The bench was a major factor in Thursday’s win, as reserve guard Brandon Jennings dished out a season-high 12 assists and forward Kyle O’Quinn had 14 points along with season highs in rebounds (16) and blocks (five). Backup big man Willy Hernangomez continued to impress when given the opportunity to share time with veteran starter Joakim Noah, picking up 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting in 21 minutes. “O’Quinn was great on the boards and got blocked shots,” Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek told reporters after seeing starters Porzingis, Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose combine to shoot 17-for-44. “Obviously, Brandon had a lot of assists. Again, big game for the bench.”

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Celtics listed as 2.5-point favorites versus the Knicks, while the game’s total is sitting at 211 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.
