The Jazz look to continue their four game road trip tonight in Boston. Yesterday the Jazz beat the Memphis Grizzlies! I am still on a high from that win. It was a strong, strong win for our young developing team. You can refresh your memories of last night's game by reading Amar's recap here and Moni's recaps here and here.
Really all you have to remember is this:
Hopefully Rudy Gobert and the Jazz continue their defensive prowess tonight against the Celtics. Last time the Jazz played the Celtics it was January 26th in Salt Lake. It was an ugly ugly game where the Jazz lost 99-90. The Celtics have actually beat the Jazz 7-of-8 matchups. The game wasn't even that close as the score shows, it was yucky.
The Jazz since that ugly loss have gone 8-6 including winning 5-of-6 and three straight! Every is excited about the Jazz again and for good reason.
The Jazz have something going. League's best defensive team since Feb. 1 thanks in large part to Rudy Gobert.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) March 4, 2015
Jazz players are excited too! They are a real team again! Some tweets from the last few games.

It is apparent that the team really like each other. They are playing for each other and they believe in Quin and his system.
Tonight they'll face a Celtics team that played last night and lost badly to the Cleveland Cavaliers. (110-79). The Celtics are 5-5 in their last ten games and have lost two in a row.

The Jazz will beat the Celtics and win their 4th game in a row for the first time all season!
