Game: Boston at New York (8:00 PM Eastern)
Pick: New York -6.5 (-110)
The absence of Boston point guard Rajon Rondo was a big factor in Game one, an 85-78 loss for the Celtics. Boston had 20 turnovers, 25 second half points and just 8 fourth quarter points. The lack of bench production was a concern for the Celtics too, who got a combined 4 points and zero field goals from their reserves. The No. 2 seeded Knicks are on a 20-7 ATS run, 14-4 ATS against the Eastern Conference, and are confident after their comeback win, a game they were on the ropes for a while. Now the pressure is all on Boston to try and get a split. The Knicks have a big depth advantage and are hopeful that starting guard Pablo Prigioni will return Tuesday. They were 16-2 with him in the starting lineup. The Knicks are 46-22 ATS in their last 68 home games and won't let down against a longtime rival while defending their home court. The Knicks won Game one by 7 points despite shooting 40.5%, going just 9-of-25 from long range (normally a great asset) and Boston going a perfect 19-for-19 from the line. None of those three things will happen again, and that all favors the home team. Play the NY Knicks in Game two.
