CELTICS AT RAPTORS, 8 P.M. ET

TV: League Pass

  • The Boston Celtics (41-39) are back in action after the Boston Marathon bombings canceled their Tuesday night game versus the Pacers. With the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference secured, they already have their eye on their postseason matchup with the New York Knicks.
  • “They have a lot of veterans and veterans show very well in the playoffs, that’s something we usually have the upper hand in and they do. They can’t play everybody, there’s only five guys on the floor at the same time and Paul (Pierce) and Kevin (Garnett) will be on that floor, and that’s good experience.”
    – Celtics Head Coach Glenn Rivers on the Knicks.
  • While the Toronto Raptors (33-48) don’t have much to play for, they’re coming off their fourth straight win and have won six of their last seven games. After beating Atlanta 113-96 on Tuesday, they’re looking to match a season-high five-game winning streak. DeMar DeRozan has been playing strong and is coming off back-to-back 30-point games, for the second time in his career.
  • Raptors rookie Terrence Ross will not be playing after re-injuring his sprained left ankle. For the Celtics, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry are not with the team, while Brandon Bass, Jeff Green and Paul Pierce will play limited minutes.
