Back in business: Red-hot Celtics ready to heat up Garden
Posted By Mike Petraglia On February 10, 2013 @ 4:47 pm In General | No Comments
With practice canceled Saturday in Waltham, Brandon Bass  and Avery Bradley  were just two of the Celtics  out early before Sunday evening’s game with the Denver Nuggets  at TD Garden. The “Nemo” blizzard of 2013 shutdown most modes of transportation in and out of Boston, including Boston’s commuter rail and T system, making transportation to the Garden difficult for even players and coaches.
The Celtics game is the first game at the Garden since Nemo hit Friday night.
The Bruins had their game with the Lightning postponed due to the state of emergency in Boston through Saturday night. The game was originally slated for 1 p.m. Saturday at the Garden and then pushed back to 7 p.m. before the NHL  canceled the game late Saturday afternoon.
As for the Celtics (26-23), they are second-hottest team in the NBA having won six straight. The only hotter team is Denver. They have won nine straight and sit 33-15 on the season. Boston has moved up to seventh place in the East and stand just a game behind No. 6 Atlanta. They are just three games back in the loss column of third place Indiana and fourth place Chicago.
The Celtics leave immediately after the game with the Nuggets for Charlotte, where they take on the Bobcats Monday night. For more, visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics .
