The NY Knicks have done it! They’re going to the 2021 NBA playoffs.

With the top three seeds locked up, New York will now do battle with Hawks and Heat to see who claims seeds four, five, and six.

While it’s important to pay attention to those teams down south, don’t count out the Boston Celtics as a potential playoff matchup.

Yes, they’ll be in the play-in tournament but you never know if they’ll find their way to a second-round appearance.

The NY Knicks could face off against the Boston Celtics in this year’s playoffs

Looking at both the Knicks and Celtics and their roster makeups, a playoff series seems like it could be really entertaining.

The Celtics are a formidable foe, even without All-Star Jaylen Brown available to play, but the Knicks have a few secret weapons up their sleeves.

With two different veteran impact coaches, dueling all-stars, and questions surrounding the center position, there’s a lot to evaluate.

Especially being ahead of today’s matchup between both teams, with so much on the line as far as playoff seeding…

This one could be a battle for the ages and I’m ready to watch with popcorn in hand!

Here is a Knicks vs Celtics playoff preview.
