Blakely on Celtics second half and trade deadline

A. Sherrod Blakely and Kyle Draper are at the All-Star Game in Houston, where Kevin Garnett will play in his "last" one.

But after the game it'll be back to business for the Green and White, and Blakely has your preview.

The C's kick things off with a road trip out west, starting with Denver and then the Lakers. So what does Blakely expect to see?

"I'm looking for them to be as consistent as they have been the last couple weeks," Blakely said. "And certainly the first two teams are really going to challenge that. You're talking about two teams that they recently played during their winning streak and those teams are obviously going to make adjustments. It'll be interesting to see how the Celtics handle those adjustments and if they can continue to play really good basketball."

The two discuss the undermanned C's in more depth, including what - if anything - they can do before the trade deadline to improve the team.
