The Celtics defeated the Knicks 116-102 last Saturday. Jaylen Brown led the Celtics to win with 30 points.


The 76ers latest game was a 119-98 loss to the Bucks on Sunday. Tyrese Maxey finished with 24 points, three rebounds, and seven assists for the 76ers.

What is the good news? The Boston Celtics totally annihilated their strongest opposition and most likely the largest force preventing them from reaching the NBA finals for the second time. What about the negative news? If these questionables and doubtfuls do not come through tonight against the Utah Jazz, the hoops could be substantially less satisfying.



To those keeping track at home:


OUT: Danilo Gallinari (ACL).


DOUBTFUL: Robert Williams (Knee management)


QUESTIONABLE: Jaylen Brown (back), Jayson Tatum (hip), Al Horford (back), and Payton Pritchard (heel).


That’s more than one-third of the roster. If I had to guess, I’d think Brown and Pritchard play while the other two iffy players sit out. I’d say there’s a 99 percent probability Robert Williams does not suit up tonight. Recently, when Tatum goes to rest, the hip contusion is listed as the cause on the injury report. It’ll be interesting to watch who prioritizes recuperation and who simply wants to get out there, play, and keep the good times going.


Marcus Smart, Malcolm Brogdon, and Derrick White will most certainly be given more duties tonight, while Grant Williams and Mike Muscala will undoubtedly have a chance to exact retribution on the Utah Jazz frontcourt. Fortunately for our short-handed frontcourt, the Celtics will not have to face Lauri Markkanen.


Kelly Olynyk and Walker Kessler will continue to suit up, providing the Jazz plenty of size up front. Utah is coming off a double-digit win over the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night, putting the Celtics at a disadvantage.


The Boston Celtics will play their final game of March tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET against the Utah Jazz.
