The Boston Celtics are coming off of a hard fought win against the Orlando Magic 112-96, with Jaylen Brown leading the way with 34 points, including 10 three pointers. The win was much needed, as the Celtics were on a three game skid prior to beating the Magic.
Up next for the Boston Celtics is a grueling four game road-trip which begins tonight in Memphis. Boston then travels to Milwaukee for a two-game series against the Bucks on Wednesday and Friday, then finishes up the road trip Saturday against the 18-24 Oklahoma City Thunder.
One of the highlights of the trip will be the difficult matchup against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks currently sit at 3rd place in the Eastern Conference, while the Celtics are in 6th place. The Celtics are looking to at least split the series with the Bucks, as it will help bolster Boston’s record.
The goal for the Celtics is to come away with at least a 3-1 record on the four game road-trip. The Celtics have not lived up to expectation this year and a .500 record will not cut it for Brad Stevens and Danny Ainge. The Celtics look to show some fight and passion on this four game trip, and if not, they could be in trouble.
