They have one win already.

The Celtics kicked off their 4 game post-All Star break road trip with a win last night. At times the team was sloppy and failed to get out on shooters and the bench didn’t contribute many points. Still, the starters carried the load and carried the team to victory.

Can they keep up their current pace despite being on the road?

Our own Daniel Poarch wrote about just this topic over the All Star break.

Perhaps the only major point of concern in Boston’s breakthrough season has been their performance on the road. It’s been an issue with the Celtics for seemingly all of time: they enjoy a dominant home court advantage at TD Garden, but perform like a much more middling team away from home. So far this season, it’s held as true as ever: the Celtics are 25-3 on their home court and 15-11 anywhere else.

For that reason, their immediate schedule coming out of the All-Star break looks particularly imposing. They’re going on a Western Conference road trip against four teams that cannot be taken lightly, and then welcoming themselves home with a rematch against a Houston Rockets team that frustrated them just before the break.

Next up are the LA Lakers, Portland Trail Blazers, and Utah Jazz.
