The Celtics have finished their West Coast trip but can't come home yet. There's more road work to be done.

After losing three of five games out West, the Celtics [team stats] crossed back to the right side of the Mississippi River yesterday to finish off their trip with games against three teams that factor into their playoff equation. The run begins with the Hawks here tonight and finishes with a back-to-back against the Bucks and 76ers on Thursday and Friday, respectively. "It’ll be fun," said coach Doc Rivers, perhaps speaking more in the hopeful than definitive sense. "We have a chance to catch Atlanta, have a chance to put room (between themselves and) Milwaukee and catch Philly. I mean, the next three games are going to be great. It should be a lot of fun."

The last time the team played the 76ers, they were flying high and had a chance to capture the Atlantic lead but they couldn't muster up the energy to get a win. Philly hasn't exactly set the world on fire either lately, having lost 3 straight, so the Celtics still only trail them by 1.5 games. It would be nice to get some wins back on the East coast.
