1. New York Knicks vs. Boston Celtics – Wed., Jan 31 at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN
Fit player to watch: Kristaps Porzingis (Knicks) – While his numbers have dipped a bit since the beginning of the season, the All-Star reserve has been continuing his development into a franchise cornerstone for the Knicks. Porzingis, who overhauled his training program this off-season with more weightlifting and boxing, is averaging 23 points per game and is leading the NBA in blocks—clearly those punching skills have come in handy.
The Knicks are fighting to get into the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, so this matchup against the Celtics is key if they want to make a real run to the postseason. The Knicks have won two in a row, but Boston has emerged as the strongest team in the conference, leading with 36 wins behind an empowered Kyrie Irving.
