I don't know about you guys, but I am quickly moving on from tonight's loss in Portland. In my opinion, it was a loss that was bound to happen. I could care less about it. Tomorrow night they will visit the Jazz in the final game of their road trip. Here are the five things they must do to win in Utah: 5. HAVE BRADLEY GET HOT: Avery Bradley has slowly gotten more and more inconsistent in the last few weeks. In Portland, Bradley shot just 4/9 from the field. This obviously needs a lot of improvement. 4. GIVE WILCOX SOME SHOTS: In Phoenix, Chris Wilcox scored a season high 14 points. But tonight in Portland, he was reduced to just two shots. With those two shots, Wilcox scored just two points. Why do they want to ruin his confidence? 3. KEEP PIERCE HOT: Paul Pierce continued his hot streak tonight with a team-high 23 points. Just a few weeks ago we all were counting him out, but he has proved is wrong. Let's hope he continues to play like this. 2. KEEP GARNETT HOT: Against the Trail Blazers, Kevin Garnett had a very nice 20 points thanks to a huge fourth quarter. This guy never slows down and I don't see him doing that any time soon. 1. BETTER REBOUNDING: Tonight, the Trail Blazers out-rebounded the Celtics 47-36. This was horrible to watch. This needs to improve more than anything else. This is becoming a recurring theme. Tip-off for tomorrow's game will be at 9:00 pm ET. Live Game Updates will be available here.
