Boston @ New York

Time: Saturday, 3 PM ET – ABC

The Knicks are the overwhelming favorites in this series, but very few experts have counted out the Celtics. Boston’s goal is to split the games played at Madison Square Garden, and that could very well happen in game one.

I do see the Celtics being able to steal one game on the road and put the pressure on the Knicks. However, Carmelo Anthony is coming off his first-ever scoring title and is red-hot right now. Put that together with the sensational atmosphere of Madison Square Garden, and I see New York picking up their first win of the series right here.

Prediction: New York
