The Eastern Conference’s seventh-place Boston Celtics (36 – 35) face the fourth-place New York Knicks (40 – 31) this Sunday, May 16 for their final game of the 2020-21 NBA regular season, and while the outcome won’t affect anything regarding their seeding, expect a strong effort from both sides as they seek to finish the season on a high note.

If you happen to be looking for a way to watch the action live on television or a streaming service, keep reading while we get you up to speed. The Celtics are fresh off of a win over the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves despite missing five key players, and the Knicks are looking to close out 2020-21 strong after beating their last two opponents, the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets.

This should be a solid game even if both sides rest a number of key players.
