NBA Playoffs 2013: Knicks vs. Celtics TV Schedule, Times, Network

If you’re not excited about the 2013 NBA playoff series between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics–you should be as it could turn out to be one of the top matchups to watch in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Knicks have been one of the biggest surprises of the 2012-13 season as they managed to earn the No. 2 seed and they looked like one of the hottest teams at the end of the regular season. With Carmelo Anthony taking his game to a whole new level this year, there’s no question New York certainly has the potential to make serious noise in the playoffs.

As for the Celtics, they’ve had to adjust to playing the second half of the regular season without star guard Rajon Rondo, but this is their favorite time of the year as they always seem to take things to a whole new level once the playoffs roll around. This team still has plenty of talent to cause enough problems for the Knicks where they could put up a strong fight in the series–so it will be interesting to see how things play out.
