The Celtics' next three weeks are full of home cooking
The Celtics return from a 1-2 road trip fresh off a disappointing last second loss to the Timberwolves. Thanks to a scheduling anomaly, they'll attempt to get back on track while spending the next couple weeks predominately at home.
Sorta unusual: The Celtics have just one road game over the next 21 days.
Of the upcoming 8 games, only the Bucks, Knicks, and Rockets are on the wrong side of 500. While upcoming slate is certainly not soft, the Celtics have to be hoping they can get on a roll in front of their home crowd. The added benefit for the team is they'll have plenty of practice time in their own facility over the next three weeks. Even after their home game against the Rockets on Friday March 11th, the Celts get the entire weekend off before heading to Indiana that Monday for their tilt with the Pacers on Tuesday the 15th.
The Celtics are 17-10 at the Garden this year. After getting off to a 9-10 start at home, the Celtics have improved their performance at the Garden immensely. They haven't lost at home since January 6th, that's 8 straight wins. Let's see if the Celts can keep the streak going over this next stretch.
