The Boston Celtics will attempt to cultivate their recent winning form and will strive to capture their fourth consecutive victory while keeping up in their division with Philadelphia and Toronto as they get ready to resume hostilities with the hapless New York Knicks.

This will be the third of four meetings between the two sides this season.

They enter this affair as a 12.5-point road underdog, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 217.5 points.
