This is great news because the Celtics are desperate for a win. The Kings are pretty bad but they’re playing at home and catching the Celtics at an extremely vulnerable time. The C’s are finishing up their California road trip and two games where they’ve endured two blowout losses. The Kings are a plenty-capable offensive team but an absolutely miserable defensive team. If the Celtics don’t shoot well, they could easily find themselves in a dog fight.
Celtics also get to catch a glimpse of what life may look like if they are able/decide to trade for DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is capable of being an absolutely dominant big man but he’s often shown an inability to control his emotions. It’s a gamble and luckily the C’s get a free audition.
