The New York Knicks will be hoping to make it five games unbeaten when they take on the Boston Celtics at the TD Bank Sports Center.

The Eastern Conference franchise have managed to string a run of four wins together since beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 118-106 last Wednesday.

The Boston Celtics, on the other hand, lost their last game against the Indiana Pacers and are currently languishing two places below the New York Knicks.

Both sides need to start picking up wins if they are going to catch the Atlanta Hawks in eighth spot and make the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Mike Woodson will have a bit of a selection headache going into tonight's game in Massachusetts as Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire have been ruled out of tonight's NBA clash.

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens may have to make a couple of changes of his own as his side played against the Pacers last night.

Stevens was happy with his side's application against the Pacers and stated his belief that the Celtics had room to improve between now and the end of the season.
