Celtics cancel practices because of snowstorm

As New Englanders shovels for, what seems like, the 100th straight day because of the non-stop snow, Brad Stevens and the Celtics cancelled practice on Sunday and Monday:

The rest can only benefit the young C's who looked very tired and weathered in Saturday's loss to the Bucks in Milwaukee, shooting 24% from beyond the arc.

Saturday was the fourth game in five nights for the Celtics. Fresh legs will only help the Celtics as they tip-off Wednesday night against the scorching hot Atlanta Hawks at the TD Garden.

The matchup with Atlanta, which is the Celts only game in a 12 day period, will be the last time the C's take the floor before the NBA All-Star break.

The green should avoid any future snowfall as they embark on a west coast trip after the break, visiting Sacramento (18-32), Los Angeles (Lakers)(13-38), and Phoenix (29-24). The jaunt to the west coast will be demanding, but all three games are very winnable, with the matchup against the Suns being the toughest test.

The Celts currently are two games back from the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
