By The Numbers: The First Road Win Against the Western Conference

I was all ready to write about a trade deadline deal for the Celtics and the new storylines that could bring, and all that exciting stuff. Guess not. The last 15 times that the Celtics have gone to a Western Conference building, they have fallen. On Friday, the Celtics will step into the Staples Center with a 0-10 record on the road against the Western Conference this season. When will the 2013-14 Celtics finally get their first road win? Well, they have a very good chance against the three worst teams of the West in the next four days.

Lakers: The Celtics have lost their last eight games on the first night of back-to-backs. The last time they won in that situation was November 29 against the Cavaliers. Jordan Crawford, Keith Bogans and MarShon Brooks all stepped onto the floor at some point during that contest. Yeah, it was a while ago. Rajon Rondo made his season debut against the Lakers, so he will be looking for revenge and to buck that trend. Could he possibly attempt 22 shots again?

The rest of the road trip is dissected after the jump…

http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2014/0207/bos_g_celtskings_600x600.jpgKings: The men in green have won two of their last three SEGABABAS (!!!) after going 2-9 to start the season. Impressively, all four of the Celtics’ SEGABABA wins have come on the road, three of which were against current playoff teams in the Eastern Conference. Unfortunately, two of those squads would be way out of the race in the Western Conference. While Jared Sullinger led the Celtics to a win over the Kings a couple weeks ago, the C’s have lost their last two games in Sacramento. The Kings have played just one game in the last nine days, so I see this SEGABABA not going the Celtics’ way.

Jazz: The last time the green won a road game against a Western Conference opponent: February 25, 2013 against none other than the … drum roll please … Utah Jazz. It was a SEGABABA 110-107 overtime victory and only a few players for each 2012-13 team will be participating in the contest 364 days later. Utah is 16-9 with the Trey Burke/Gordon Hayward/Richard Jefferson/Marvin Williams/Derrick Favors starting lineup, but Favors looks like an uncertainty. Tyrone Corbin’s squad is 3-25 without that starting lineup this season, so I am going with Monday’s game as the big night for the Celtics.

Uh oh: However, if the C’s cannot beat any of those teams … wait ’til next year? They will have just two more opportunities, and they will both be against the Southwest Division – the Pelicans and Mavericks. Boston still has yet to beat a team from the Southwest Division home or away this season. Before 2013-14, only once in Celtics history has the team gone winless against a division in a single season.
