season, with their longest road trip being two-games in that span.
Following that stretch of home games, the C's will get a lot of their
road schedule out of the way, and quickly.
Their stretch from the end
of November thru the beginning of January is as brutal as they come.
During that time frame, Boston will play 14 of its 19 games on the
road. That includes two different stints in which they will play seven
of eight games on the road. In the month of December, the Celtics will
play in the Garden only four times.
….In fact, they'll actually play 17 of their final 28 games in front of
their home faithful in preparation for the playoffs, including a
season-long six-game homestand from March 24-April 4.
This schedule will allow the Celtics to start and finish strong. I have no problems with that.
Aside from their Christmas Day battle with the Magic, the Celtics have three other holiday games:
- MLK Day (Mon, Jan 18) – vs Dallas
- St. Patricks Day (Wed, March 17) – vs New York
- Easter Sunday (April 4) – vs Cleveland
