The Knicks (18-18) have traded wins and losses over their last six games and will try to get on a winning streak since Jeremy Lin emerged out of obscurity this year.
The Celtics (18-17), with standout point guard Rajan Rondo, will try to stifle the Knicks at home and were winners in their last three games.
Rondo has been the subject of trade rumors, with reports that the Los Angles Lakers and Golden State Warriers are interested in the elite point guard.
Boston is coming off a 107-94 thumping of the New Jersey Nets while the Knicks roll into Beantown after a 120-103 triumph in Madison Square Garden against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Watching Jeremy Lin, who has taken the basketball world and the country by storm since becoming a breakout star this season, go toe-to-toe with Rondo should be the most intriguing part of the matchup.
Lin is averaging 21.4 points per game over his last 10 contests and led the Knicks in assists in their last game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
