Skinny: While today isn't a "must-win" game for the Celtics, a victory were sure go a long way in terms of cementing the Celtics' play over the final few games of this road trip. After an admirable performance against Portland on Friday, the Celtics need to follow it up with another complete 48-minute game, which is what it will take to knock off such a talented Denver squad.
Defense will be the Celtics' main priority today, although it is something of a daunting task having to try and slow down this high-powered Denver offense. Nonetheless, the Celtics need consistency as a team right now, and a convincing win over the second best team in the Western Conference today would go a long way towards their ascent back up to the throne of the top teams in the league.
