The Boston Celtics have a pretty busy schedule this month, but don’t tell them that just yet.
Despite having a schedule that has the Celtics playing 15 games in 31 days, an average of just under one per every two days, the Celtics are enjoying a nice little lull in their schedule at the beginning of the month.
After playing the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, March 1, the Celtics do not play again until tomorrow night, when they host the Golden State Warriors. Those three days off could not have come at a better time for the Cs, as Boston has been dealing with injuries to Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk, Gerald Wallace, Jared Sullinger, and Vitor Faverani.
Sully returned to action against the Pacers, but the Celtics declared Wallace done for the season earlier today. Thankfully, Olynyk appears to be on track to play against the Warriors tomorrow night, and Bradley’s return might be right around the corner, as well. I’m sure Celtics head coach Brad Stevens would love to get the Bradley “The Human Double Team” (also known as Zero Tolerance, I am told) back as soon as possible, as his on-the-ball defense has been sorely missed.
The only other game the Celtics will play this week will be when they host the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, March 7. This will be the second time this season that Boston welcomes former Celtics Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett back to the garden, so don’t expect the emotions to be quite as high this time around. Still, this game should be fun to watch, as Brooklyn is currently fighting for a playoff spot and every Celtics fan in the world misses Paul Pierce and his ability to SCORE POINTS EVERY NIGHT.
