West Coast Wipeout
Will the real Boston Celtics please stand up? Doc Rivers and company return to the east coast after getting blown out in three games against the Clippers, Warriors and Kings by an average of 23 points.
The question many still ask is whether this years team is the one that took 7 of 10 games during a stretch in November or the one that closed out December losing 7 of 10.
After getting outscored 323 to 256 the need for defense is obvious when you consider that they are allowing just over 108 points per game. That help could be in the form of Avery Bradley who is set to make his season debut Wednesday against Memphis. Bradley has been out of action since the playoffs last season as he rehabs from surgery on both shoulders.
The Celtics are at the Garden for their next two games taking on the Grizzlies and Pacers.
