Despite the loss in Indianapolis, Boston stayed at the top of the Eastern Conference standings with 15 wins and only 5 losses in 20 games.
New York Knicks
With one of the best defenses this season, Tom Thibodeau's team lost to Milwaukee 122:146. They allowed opponents to shoot over 60 percent of their shots, including 60.5 percent of their three-pointers - 23 of 38.
The loss to the Bucks did not affect New York's defensive rating - 107.5 passing points per game and third in the NBA. The record hasn't changed much either - 12:8 and fifth place in the East.
Expert Betting Tips
Boston has won all nine of their games this season, almost all of them convincingly, including a 114:98 win over the Knicks in mid-November. In the upcoming game, the Celtics will be looking to repeat that success - the best team in the Eastern Conference needs to bounce back after being destroyed by the midseason tournament. Milwaukee showed the same level as New York last night. Tom Thibodeau has a solid team, but one with limited potential.
