Coming Soon: Road Trips For The Celtics

You guys ready for some road trips?
You guys ready for some road trips?

The worst part about getting off to the slow start was the favorable schedule and mass of home games in the first half of this truncated year. The unbalanced schedule gets a lot tougher very soon. In fact, there's a road trip starting later this week (after we host the Pistons on Wed.) Which is probably why Doc was harping on mental toughness recently. It is going to take a lot of that to get through to the end in one piece.

The Celtics have played 18 of their first 27 games at home, meaning 24 of the final 39 games will be away from TD Garden, and a series of extended road trips begins Thursday in Chicago, so team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge is reserving his enthusiasm for now. "The team is playing better,’’ he said yesterday. "We have a real challenge ahead of us. The schedule gets really hard. We have a lot of road games coming up but our team has been playing much, much better. Our team is playing well over the past few weeks, but we need to get better.’’

After the jump you can see a quick look at our upcoming schedule.
