The Bruins annihilated the Florida Panthers 8-0 on Friday, the Patriots came back for an epic 27-24 win on Christmas Eve and now the Celtics look to open the NBA season with a W against the Knicks on Christmas Day.
At noon eastern time, KG and the gang tip off at Madison Square Garden.
The Christmas Day game has an added significance, opening an NBA season that was in doubt for nearly half a year due to a troublesome lockout. If the Celtics could win, Boston fans would receive the greatest gift of all: a Holiday Weekend sports sweep. So throw some logs on the fire, fill your cup with egg nog and watch your Boston basketball team with the ones you love. Merry Christmas, everyone!
