Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony tangle on Thursday night.

The New York Knicks will look to bounce back after falling to the Brooklyn Nets on Monday as they head out for the first of a two game road trip whey they face the Boston Celtics on Thursday night at 8:00 pm EST from TD Garden. NBA lines for Knicks vs Celtics odds have New York as slight 1-point favorites on the road against Boston with the over/under total set at 188 for the game that can be seen live on TNT. The Knicks will take the floor in Massachusetts after letting one slip away in a 85-88 loss to Brooklyn despite a 29-point, 3-rebound and 7-assist performance from Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony had a horrible fourth quarter missing all six shots and finishing the night shooting a poor 11 of 29 from the floor while J.R. Smith added 16-points in the loss to the Nets. The Knicks failed to cover the spread as 3-point favorites at home to go 25-14 SU and 21-18 against the spread for the season. Boston however will be looking to end a four game losing streak after losing 90-95 at the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. The Celtics could only muster 17-fourth quarter points and failed to cover the spread as 5-point betting favorites in NBA lines to go 20-21 SU and a dismal 15-23-3 ATS for the year. Rajon Rondo led Boston with just 17-points, 13-rebounds and 8-assists while Kevin Garnett added 16-points and Paul Pierce chipped in 12-points. Handicapping trends for Knicks vs Celtics odds have New York favored on the road since recently going 8-2 after playing Brooklyn but gamblers should note, the squad has also gone 4-6 ATS in the past 10-match-ups between the two teams. Boston looks to be the moneyline wager at -105 having recently gone a perfect 5-0 when playing New York at TD Garden but are also a worrisome 1-4 ATS in their last five games.
