Kevin Durant progressing in rehab, no timetable for return

The calling card of the Celtics has been ball movement, where they rank second in passes per game (325.3) and third in assists per game (24.9), as they assist on 64.5 percent of their field goals. Twelve minutes later, the Celtics had earned the last laugh by holding Curry scoreless in the final period (strangely he only played five minutes and took one shot) and the Warriors to a season-low 12 points (along with eight of their 17 turnovers). The Warriors were only home briefly, however, playing Wednesday night against Boston before heading back out of town for games at Minnesota on Friday and at San Antonio on Saturday.

While the Wizards didn't make any huge moves at the trade deadline, they were able to bolster their bench by striking a deal with Brooklyn to get forward Bojan Bogdanovic.

The Celtics now do not have the pieces to challenge the Cavs Eastern Conference hegemony, yet the 2017-18 Celtics will nearly certainly have the weapons to finally dethrone Cleveland. Do it, you'll enjoy the game!

Early on, the C's looked tired, with the Warriors jumping out to a 10-2 lead in front of their always-raucous home crowd. The Celtics took advantage of a sequence of Warriors' giveaways, punishing the home team in a 15-0 run.

Stephen Curry drilled a three after getting Jaylen Brown to bite on a fake to end the third quarter to give the Warriors a 74-72 lead in Oakland.

Then, the fourth quarter happened. That's what I've been doing, and I'm sure that's what I'll be doing the next few days, but the next two weeks, I really don't know. Let us know who you got in this game! "He says he feels good".

Before the injury, Durant was averaging 25.3 points, 4.8 assists and 8.2 rebounds per game. You read that right.

Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics in scoring with 25 points, despite hitting just 7-20 from the floor. Alongside those players are sharpshooter and lockdown defender Klay Thompson and all-around big man Draymond Green. Steve Kerr's troops went 3-2 on their first Kevin Durant-less road trip, falling to Chicago and Washington.

According to the team's public relations Twitter account, the Wolves' 97.3 defensive rating since the All-Star break is the best in the National Basketball Association. Without Kevin Durant and the team seemingly having no groove at all, Golden State looks vulnerable and they're in danger of falling out of the top seed in the Western Conference. They will play host to the Boston Celtics.

And something to keep an eye on down the stretch as Boston jockeys for playoff position: the Celtics have a forgiving schedule. The team experienced consecutive losses in recent games and also with the two wins of last five.
