The Boston Celtics emerged from the NBA trade deadline with the same team they had before. Now, the stretch run begins.
After a standing pat ahead of Thursday’s deadline — the only move they made was to buy out forward David Lee on Friday — the Celtics kick off their post-All Star break schedule with a showdown in Utah against the Jazz.
The Jazz made a bit of noise before the break, winning seven of nine to move into a tie for the Western Conference’s No. 8 seed. They also acquired Atlanta Hawks guard Shelvin Mack, who along with Gordon Hayward will reunite with former Butler coach Brad Stevens at Vivint Smart Home Arena.
Friday’s game is being nationally televised on ESPN and will be available on live stream via the WatchESPN app.
Here’s how to watch Celtics-Jazz.
