The Daily Dime pointed out that the schedule doesn't get any easier for the Celtics in February. I've added the current winning percentages for each team.
Fri 2: LA Clippers - .511 - won 7 of last 10
Tue 6: at Detroit - .591 - best in the East (with Wiz losing Jamison)
Wed 7: Miami - .444 - but Shaq is back
Fri 9: New Jersey - .478
Sun 11: at Minnesota - .489
Wed 14: Milwaukee - .391
Tue 20: at Sacramento - .409 - start of road trip
Wed 21: at Phoenix - .800!!!
Fri 23: at LA Lakers - .609
Sat 24: at Utah - .638
Mon 26: at Houston - .644 - end of road trip
Wed 28: New York - .417
That 5 game road trip includes two back to back sets (4 games in 5 nights). There will also be the fun distraction of the trade deadline smack in the middle of that road trip (Feb 22).
I think Gerald better win the Slam Dunk competition, because there might not be too many other wins to look forward to for a long time.
