Wednesday night the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics meet for the second time this preseason, with the Knicks looking to reverse their fortunes after losing 119-107 Saturday night. The game’s scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, with fans in the two markets having the opportunity to watch on either MSG (viewers in Knicks territory) or CSN New England (Celtics). For everyone else, the game will be televised on ESPN.

In Saturday’s game two reserves looking to earn minutes when the regular season begins led the way offensively, with R.J. Hunter pacing the Celtics with 17 points on 6-for-8 shooting from the field and the Knicks’ Mindaugas Kuzminskas leading all scorers with 18 points. Hunter has a guaranteed contract for this season, but with Boston having 16 players signed to guaranteed deals someone has to go by October 24 (the deadline to get to 15 players on the roster).
