NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 13: Jaylen Brown /


2nd: v. Atlanta Hawks (W)

4th: v. Portland Trailblazers (W)

6th: at Toronto Raptors (W)

8th: at Washington Wizards (L)

9th: at Indiana Pacers (L)

11th: v. Cleveland Cavaliers (L)

3 losses in a row is not a good look. I told you not to worry before Celtics fans, but I feel like this is where the Cavaliers begin to make a run at the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Luckily for Boston, the NBA All-Star break is coming up soon, and they’ll have a chance to regroup for the second half of the season.

14th: v. Los Angeles Clippers (W)

23rd: at Detroit Pistons (W)

This game is going to be a post-All-Star break blowout. Boston will win by at least 20 points (sorry Avery Bradley) to show that they aren’t falling apart and are still the team to beat in the conference.

24th: at New York Knicks (W)

26th: v. Memphis Grizzlies (W)

28th: v. Charlotte Hornets (W)

Record: 48-15

Stretching back to the game before the All-Star break, the Boston Celtics will end a rocky February with 5 wins in a row over the Clippers, Pistons, Knicks, Grizzlies, and Hornets. None of those team are NBA title contenders, but they’re not slouches either. The Celtics will have the chance to make a few statements down the stretch with blowouts and big games.
