The Knicks for me. They can't shoot 50% from three every game. The Pacers have a better defense and have much younger legs. Melo always seems to shoot poorly against us and if we find a way to contain JR off the bench I think they are an easier match for us. The Pacers have length at every position that makes it tough for us to guard them.
CB Draft 2016:
PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell
PF:Dirk Nowitzki/JaMychal Green
C: Deandre Jordan/Roy Hibbert/Alex Len

doesn't matter.  to me the relevant questions are:
1. will everyone be back and healthy for the playoffs (excluding those that are out for the year naturally)
2. will everyone show up to play hard every game.  if they do, we could beat either of these teams and give Miami/Chicago a good run for the money.  if not, we're not beating anyone.

Knicks. 



Mostly because I want the Pacers to somehow play the Heat before the Celtics do.  Not a chance of it happening. 

Knicks: Irving, Drummond, Marcus Morris, S. Muhammad, C. Lee, Sullinger, Hield, M. Chriss , V. Carter, T. Zeller, N. Cole, T. Prince, Livio Jean-Charles, Tyler Ulis, N. Collison

Pacers, they lack scoring and are prone to the droughts that plagued the C's in the past. Against a team like that we can steal an away game when their shots aren't falling
DKC:  Rockets
CB Draft: Memphis Grizz
Players: Klay Thompson, Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon
Next 3 picks: 4.14, 4.15, 4.19

Pacers. A team that is already prone to long scoring droughts, a problem that could be exasperated by our defense (with a healthy KG).

Either one. If KG is healthy I feel we beat either one in 6 games or less. With the preperation between games and the rest, the Celtics are a team built for the playoffs.

Streaky Knicks

if shots aren't falling they tend to go for Melo-ball
and what a better way to start playoffs with a Honey Nut Cheerios :D

New York. I don't care how well they're playing lately, they're still the Knicks. Live by the 3, die by the 3.

The three teams I love to beat are Lakers, Heat, Knicks in that order. It would be great to knock them out of the playoffs again.

Knicks.

Pacers will be a tough out mainly because they like playing defense. i hope pacers knock out the heat actually.
