Why should I watch? (Sports)
Tuesday, April 10
Boston vs. Miami, 6:30 p.m. on?Time Warner Ch. 34, ESPN
Boston takes on Miami in the first game of a Tuesday night NBA doubleheader on ESPN.
The aging Boston Celtics, despite the opinions of numerous detractors, are sitting in the No. 4 seed and leading in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Miami, the No. 2 seed, recently showed its teeth with an impressive win over Western?Conference favorite Oklahoma City.
New York Knicks players should have particular interest in tonight’s contest. The Knicks, who face Chicago in the second game of the Tuesday doubleheader on ESPN, could gain ground in the Atlantic Division with a win and a Celtic loss. New York is three games out of first in the Atlantic. New York would also like to climb out of the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference and there by get a more favorable first round match up in the playoffs.
