The Boston Celtics traveled to New Orleans for the start of a three-game road trip on Tuesday and Kevin Garnett (illness, thigh) flew with his teammates after missing the past two games, according to the team.

After last night’s festivities, the Celtics sit tied with Chicago for 6th in the East with 16 games left to play (only 16????). They are a half game out of 5th, 2.5 out of 4th, and 3.5 out of the division lead/3rd seed.

@ New York
The Celtics will need Kevin Garnett because those first 5 games come over 7 days. And with two games against the struggling Knicks, there is still an outside shot at that division lead and 3rd seed. They’re going to have to win these games against l...
