After winning and pretty much dismantling the entire Magic team on Friday, the Celtics get ready to play shorthanded once again. This time they face the Knicks who have lost 5 straight games thanks to a grueling schedule. The Celtics on the other hand have won 5 staright games and are a top the Eastern Confrence.
The Celtics will be without star Forward Jayson Tatum as he is still quarantining after testing positive for Covid 19. They we also be without Carson Edwards and Robert Williams who are missing two straight games due to Covid 19 as well.
A bright side for The Celtics is that Kemba Walker’s injury has been updated and he will have limited minutes for today’s game. Tacko Fall is also questionable.
For the Knicks they have three guys on the injury list. Mitchell Robinson is listed as questionable with an ankle injury. Nerlans Noel is also on the questionable list. Alec Burks is most likley to be out as well with an ankle injury.
With Tatum out yet again, Brown is set to have a big game. His stats and progress this season has put him in Elite company and he is rising to super stardum. Last year Brown played very well but was snubbed of the all star team. This year if he keeps up his numbers he will no doubt be selected to the All star team. Brown should dominate the Knicks today.
