The Boston Celtics started their longest road trip of the season with a 102-93 loss to the LA Clippers, leaving head coach Brad Stevens looking for answers.Tayshaun Prince was the newest player to wear a Celtic uniform after coming to Boston in a trade last week. Shavlik Randolph is expected to do the same during this trip. With all the moving pieces, Stevens continues to balance the need to make progress toward becoming a better team and incorporate new players who have to learn his system.

In Monday's loss Prince scored two points in 20 minutes of playing time. Brandon Bass led the Celtics with 17 points.

The Celtics will be in Portland Tuesday to play the Trail Blazers.
