Just how tough will this West Coast road trip be for the Boston Celtics when all is said and done? The Celtics got off to a solid start, but the annual swing to the left coast is always a tough one, and will truly test the current iteration of the team under head coach Ime Udoka.
After getting their defensive schema in order earlier in the season after a rough start to 2021-22, the Celtics slowly started to find their way on the offensive end of the court. But, they are also still without All-Star forward Jaylen Brown due to a lingering hamstring injury that has kept the Georgia native out for much of the month of November and bled into December.
The hosts of the CLNS Media podcast “The A-List” A. Sherrod Blakely and Kwani A. Lunis broached the question of how the Celtics will look by the time they get back to the East Coast given all the issues noted above.
