The Celtics have looked like a brand new team over the past month. Since losing close back-to-back home games to the Hornets and Blazers in mid-January, Ime Udoka’s squad has rolled off 12 wins in 14 games, including a nine-game winning streak.
While a lot of things have turned around for the C’s in that time, a big difference is how the team has played on the road. In their previous eight road games before that stretch, the Celtics were 1-7 losing by an average of 5.5 points per game. Since beating the Wizards in Washington on Jan. 23, they’re 7-1 away from Boston including six consecutive road wins. However, the dominance goes deeper than that.
As shared by Taylor Snow of Celtics.com, the Celtics have not trailed on the road – not once – for the entire month of February. In fact, their last road deficit was a 2-0 score less than a minute into their Jan. 29 game against the Pelicans, the first game of the overall nine-game winning streak.
