The Celtics have two games remaining on their road trip- Sunday at Portland and Monday at Utah - but already the trip has been a success.

Newcomers Terrence Williams and Jordan Crawford have already shown (in a limited sample size) that they can be high-impact players for this Celtics team. Their additions allow the Celtics to spread the court, push the tempo, and perhaps most importantly, allow some of their veterans a chance to get some rest.

"When you look at where the Celtics started this trip and where they are now position wise, you're gonna have a healthier roster, you got a chance to rest a lot of guys," said A. Sherrod Blakely.

Blakely says there are some who believe Williams is the best passer on the roster, and he showed that on Friday against the Suns. Crawford offers instant high-octane offense off the bench. Combined, the two new Celtics could spark the team to a successful road trip, and perhaps a sustained playoff run.
