Tomorrow, the 30-27 Celtics will finally head home to host the Golden State Warriors. The Celtics are coming off of a pretty disappointing road-trip, in which they went just 2-3. They were able to make up for a 1-3 start partially with a terrific OT victory over the Jazz Monday night. Let's hope that they can carry that momentum into the Garden. Here are their five keys to victory: 5. GET CRAWFORD HOT: In Utah, Jordan Crawford did not play as amazing as his teammates. Crawford had a team-low 2 points on just 1/2 shooting, something that is obviously unacceptable. Get him some more shots and see if he can contribute. 4. BETTER REBOUNDING: The Celtics didn't rebound very well against the Jazz. I'm not going to complain about how they should've won better, but being out-rebounded 44-37 shows that improvement should be recommended. 3. MORE CONSISTENCY FROM KG: Kevin Garnett played a big part in Monday night's win, but most of his notable contributions came in the fourth quarter or overtime. If he could've played like that in the first half, an overtime period wouldn't have been needed. 2. GIVE PIERCE THE SHOT IN HIGH-PRESSURE SITUATIONS: In the overtime period Monday night, Paul Pierce was the Celtics shining star. Pierce's 7 consecutive points pretty much won the game for the C's. I don't care if he misses the big shots, but I do want him to take them. 1. FOUL LESS: In Utah, the Celtics committed 24 fouls. The main reason why the Jazz were able to rally in the fourth quarter was because they kept getting their best free throw shooters to the line. This needs to stop before it costs them a game. Tip-off for tomorrow's game will be at 7:30 pm ET. Live Game Updates will be available here.
