Amid all the drama around the NBA, it’s easy to forget that, well, there still are games to be played.

Appropriately, Madison Square Garden on Friday will play host to a bout between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks.

Of course, there’s some (minor) significance to the Celtics-Knicks connection, as the Knicks long have been rumored as a possible destination for Boston point guard Kyrie Irving, who can become a free agent this offseason. Irving managed to fan those flames during Friday’s shootaround, as he sort of walked back his commitment to re-sign with the C’s this summer.
