Today’s best bet: NEW YORK KNICKS (-7) over Boston Celtics
■ Here are two teams going in opposite directions to end the season. The Knicks have won 15 of their past 16 games, while the Celtics have lost 11 of their past 16. These two teams played twice in March and the Knicks won both contests by double digits. The Knicks are a scoring machine; look for them to overwhelm the Celtics.
