The Celtics swept the four-game series against the Knicks this season.

Timberwolves 101-86 Nets
Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Brooklyn Nets 101-86, led by Anthony Edwards’ 29 points and Karl-Anthony Towns’ 28. Chris Finch and his organized defense already lead the Western Conference. The Nets, led by interim Kevin Ollie, struggled to find their offensive rhythm, with low field goal and 3-point percentages.
