The first-round matchup between the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks is one of contrast. The two teams differ in terms of style, depth, direction, strengths and weaknesses. These differences contribute to the many reasons, from the historic rivalry to the probable return of Shaq, to watch this series.
What I find most compelling, however, are the individual matchups. That's where you see the variables that contribute to the overall uniqueness of both teams.
As a result, we get to enjoy an intriguing matchup at every roster spot.
