Celtics Preview: West Coast Trip Pt 2

The All Star break is over and west coast road trip number two starts tomorrow night in Golden State with stops in Denver, LA(Clippers) and Utah. Four games in seven days await the C’s before they come home next Wednesday. I like our odds on this trip as for the first time since I can remember out west no back to backs will be played on this trip. This is a great thing for a team that is older and battling injuries. Last months trip was a success with a 3-1 record. Lets hope that part 2 on the left coast will be the same.

Tuesday: Golden State Warriors- Oracle Arena has not been kind to the Celtics over the past few years and it has not helped that this game has always been part of a back to back. This year its the first game after the break so hopefully we will see a better effort from the Celtics end in this one.

Thursday: Denver Nuggets- Trade deadline day so who knows how this one is going to go with all the Melo drama. If he does get traded it seems like 4 others are going with him. So the Celtics may catch a break and play a Denver team that may only have 8 or 9 guys dressed. Lets not forget Danny may have something up his sleeve in a trade so we will have to wait and see.

Saturday: LA Clippers- The trap game of the trip as a young athletic Clippers team with Blake Griffin leading the way may not have a good record but they show up and give there best effort every night. They will especially be up at home to play a powerhouse team and try to show the other basketball team that plays in the staple center that they are not that far away from being a contender in the West.

Monday: Utah Jazz- The last game of a trip is always the hardest and the jazz are not like the Kings. Once again Salt lake City has not been kind to the Celtics so they will have to grind this one out. It’s going to come down to the PG play as Rondo vs Williams will be the key match up to who wins this game.

Prediction: 3-1
