Celtics-Knicks: Staying In Boston For A Week.

The Celtics and Knicks will play eachother in the season finale and in the first round of the playoffs; this has happened 13 times before in the last 20 seasons.  In six of these instances, highlighted in red, the two teams have stayed at the same venue.  In those six instances, the home team, which was also the team with home-court advantage was 20-8.  In the other series, where the season finale and playoff opener were played at different venues, the team with home-court advantage was 20-15.  Although this stat is not 100% predictive or even 50%, it doesn’t bode well for the Knicks’ hope of a first round upset.
