Home » Professional Sports » Celtics Have a Rollercoaster Week

The Boston Celtics have had quite a busy week of ups and downs. They beat the Grizzlies, the Pacers, the Bulls, the Hornets, the Rockets, and the Nets. However, they were beaten by the Jazz, the Heat, the Knicks, and the Wizards. The Celtics losses this past week were to teams that do not have great records and should have been easily beaten.

Probably the most exciting game this past week was when the Celtics played the Rockets. The Rockets, with James Harden and Eric Gordon, seemed to walk all over the Celtics in the first half. At halftime, many Celtics fans turned off the game, as they were down 24 points and there looked to be no hope for the C’s in the second half. Despite being down by 24, they came out extremely strong and outscored the Rockets 31-16 in the third quarter. Down 78-69 going into the fourth quarter, the Celtics continued to chip away at the lead. This one came down to the final seconds, and with two offensive fouls by James Harden with under 10 seconds to go, the Celtics pulled off the big win 99-98. Scoring in double digits for that game for the C’s was Kyrie Irving with 26, Jayson Tatum with 19, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier both with 13, and Marcus Morris with 10.

The upcoming schedule for the Celtics is:

1/3-against the Cavs

1/5-against the Timberwolves

1/6-against the Nets

1/11-against the 76ers
