Well, last week was some what of a down week for the Celtics going 2-2. The Celtics will look to rebound this week and improve there NBA best 28-4 record. They Celtics play three games this week vs Portland, Washington and New York. The Celtics should be able to win all three if they stayed focused and don't have jet lag flying back to the East Coast. Let's break down the Week.
December 30th at 10:00 PM ET
Celtics vs Trail Blazers
The Celtics will take on the Portland Trail Blazers up in Portland later tonight. I think this will end up being the toughest test for the Celtics and the most entertaining game of the week. I have a good feeling the Celtics will have no trouble taking care of the Knicks or Wizards but the Trail Blazers are 19-12 and been having a great season. The Celtics will need to be able to slow down Brandon Roy who is the Blazers leading scorer at 23 points a game. The Celtics should be ready as it wasn't a long bus ride or plane flight away from Sacramento and they had an off day on Monday. I think the Celtics take care of the Blazers and win 104-96.
Friday January 2nd at 7:30 PM ET
Celtics vs Wizards
This is the second game of the week for the Celtics and probably the least entertaining and an easy win for the Celtics. I don't see the 6-23 Wizards to be much of a challenge for the Celtics, in Boston. I picked the Wizards to play a tight game with the Celtics they last time they played in D.C. and they got killed 122-88 and I see this game about the same. The Wizards in my mind are a surprise to be this bad. I never saw them at 6-23, ever with Arenas down. I think the Celtics win 124-91.
Sunday January 4th at 6:00 PM ET
Celtics vs Knicks
The Celtics end the week with a pretty good game with the Knicks in MSG. I also enjoy to watch the Celtics play in New York and this should be another fun game. The Celtics should also pick up another win and end the week at 3-0. The Knicks are having a pretty bad season at 11-18 and last in the Atlantic Division. Mike D'Antoni doesn't seem to have his team on the right track right now as they have lost 6 games in a row. I see the Celtics winning 114-96.
