STAT: On Knicks' and Celtics' winning streaks

The Knicks enter tomorrow night's game against the Celtics with an eight-game winning streak, while the Cs have won 10 in a row -- the longest active streak in the Eastern Conference. This will be the fifth time dating back to 1993 that opposing teams facing each other have winning streaks of at least eight games. Recent history is not on the Knicks' side, though: Each of the previous three meetings were won by the road team.
