Thumbnail: Wow, what a night Sunday was for all involved. I am still recovering from how overwhelming the reception was from the Garden crowd for the two Celtics players who will soon have their jerseys retired. Well, now that we have had the best night of the C’s season, we still have 36 games left. Get exited. However, even with all of the losses that the Celtics have suffered recently, they are still just three games behind the Knicks. This New York team is also only two games ahead of the worse team in the Western Conference.

Tuesday is the first time Brad Stevens will face Tyson Chandler, who has put up double-doubles in three of his last five games after having only two in his first 15 contests this season. It will be difficult for Boston to have to guard the seven-footer, no matter whom they put on him. The C’s did not have to worry about Chandler earlier this season, as the men in green defeated the Knicks twice in the same week in the regular season for the first time since 1991.

Brandon Bass, who played with Chandler for the Hornets in 2005-06, will not have to guard his former teammate. However, he will have the difficult task of taking on the man who scored the most points ever in the modern Madison Square Garden. We know he has done a solid job in the past against Carmelo Anthony, so it will be an interesting matchup to watch in this contest. On the offensive side, although Bass put up a “measly” 17 points on Sunday, that was his highest-scoring performance in a month and a half.

Prediction: No Andrea Bargnani, Kenyon Martin [UPDATE: Martin surprised me by returning Tuesday, but even went to the locker room at one point] or Amar’e StoudamireJerryd Bayless is back and so is Chris Johnson with his second 10-day contract – make it three straight for the C’s over the Knickerbockers as well as the Celtics’ first victory in a game Rondo has played since January 14, 2013.

Celtics 101, Knicks 98

    One of the things I’m watching is whether Rondo can or will change his walk-the-ball-up and dribble-the-ball mindset and start increasing the pace and play off the ball more. As much as Crawford was criticized for dribbling, Rondo takes it to a whole, new level.

    as talented as a healthy Rondo may be, a team full of young guys need to be running to maximize their effectiveness, and I think this will play a major roll in Danny’s thinking going forward.
