The Boston Celtics play their home games at TD Garden in downtown Boston, Massachusetts. They have been knocking there since it opened its doors in 1995 as a replacement for the infamous Boston Garden. The Celtics share their home with the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL).
Boston will try to end with more wins than defeats this year in an increasingly difficult Eastern Conference. Last year, the Celtics ended right in. Their list looks very different from the previous season, despite bringing back Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The Celtics are in the Atlantic division, alongside the New York Knicks, the Toronto Raptors, the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers.
The 76ers were at the top of the division last year; however, the Nets are favored this coming season, assuming they can stay healthy. Boston has 15 consecutive games this year, which is the most tied (along with several other teams). The Celtics have a Christmas Day game against the Milwaukee Bucks, which will be played just after the Hawks vs. They have 33 games televised nationally, which is quite substantial for a team that only won half of their matches last season.
The great 29-year-old man spent his first three and a half seasons of his career with Boston and seems to have picked up right where he left off. White drew the start instead of Marcus Smart (ankle), but struggled with his shot and failed to score in double figures for the first time since joining Boston. Marcus Smart left the contest in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle, which probably contributed to Nesmith's increased playing time. In his debut game for his second season with Boston, Theis came off the bench and set a new high season in blocks.
However, when Robert Williams (calf) returns to rotation, Theis is likely to see a slight decrease in playing time. Smart left Tuesday's big win over the 76ers due to a sprained right ankle, and it looks like the Celtics will be cautious and keep the point guard on their side for their last game before the All-Star break. He will look to continue shooting in the last Celtics game before Wednesday's All-Star break against Detroit. The substitute point guard may be prepared for another increased role on Wednesday, as Smart has been considered doubtful for the Celtics' final competition before the All-Star break.
The third-year big man is likely to tie another start on Wednesday against the Pistons, as Robert Williams (calf) has been considered doubtful for the Celtics' final competition before the All-Star break. This doesn't come as a surprise, as the talented big man can now rest his calf through the All-Star break and will presumably be completely healthy when the Celtics return to action Feb.
