How To Bet On Knicks Celtics – Knicks Look To Continue Strong Start To Preseason

Posted by Craig Parsons on 10/18/2012 7:00:34 PM

The New York Knicks continued a strong start to their preseason schedule last Saturday, knocking off the Boston Celtics in a 98-95 overtime win that lifted their record to 2-0. The Knicks will look for more of the same when they play back-to-back games against the Toronto Raptors and Celtics this weekend, with the rematch at Boston scheduled for Saturday night. New York has done an excellent job setting the tempo and executing in each of their first two preseason wins, something they will continue to work on this weekend as they build for the coming regular season.

The Celtics have started a little slower than the Knicks, and while these exhibition games won’t count in the standings, the way that Boston has dropped its two preseason losses could become a concern if the trends within their game continue. Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo both struggled from the field in Saturday’s loss to New York, and need to get on track.

Continuing to execute at a high level on a consistent basis will be among the keys for the Knicks going forward, and their sports betting fans will be happy with what they have seen so far. Carmelo Anthony scored a game-high 23 points in New York’s win over the Celtics, and little-known forward Chris Copeland came off the bench with 21 points and six rebounds. The Knicks have to be hoping that Copeland pushes them to take a long look at him heading in to the regular season, and as long as the star players like Anthony and Tyson Chandler continue to score, there will be more opportunities for the young players to be evaluated later on in games.

For the Celtics to compete in an improved Eastern conference once again this season, they will need their star players to step up and play consistent two-way basketball, including both Pierce and Rondo. Boston knows what it will get out of Kevin Garnett, but Pierce and Rondo are both coming off inconsistent seasons and that led to mediocre results a year ago. Rookie Jared Sullinger scored 14 points in 26 minutes of action and also had seven rebounds in the Celtics’ loss to New York, and it is looking more as though Boston landed another late first-round gem with his online betting selection.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Both teams certainly have work to do to prepare for the regular season, but the Celtics will go in to this game with the greater sense of urgency, particularly since they are playing at home. Look for Rondo to bounce back with a much better stat line in this game as he looks to quiet his critics early, but also keep an eye on the rookie Sullinger, who could be the first-year player that is most flying under the radar heading in to this season.
