Welcome to TD Garden for Linsanity

Do you remember the Knicks being here about a month ago, and how little fanfare there was to Jeremy Lin’s return to Boston? He played 6 minutes in that game and his presence was an afterthought, overshadowed by the Celtics’ thrilling last-second win. Well, that was before Linsanity and now Jeremy Lin is the talk of the NBA, so we’ll call this his first visit to Boston post Linsanity.

Good news for the Celtics is Ray Allen and Avery Bradley are available and will play. So both teams will basically be at full strength. Jermaine O’Neal is still out and won’t return for a while because of his sprained left wrist.
