Boston • The Jazz enter Wednesday's game against the Celtics riding a surge of momentum following a triple-overtime 140-133 marathon victory over Toronto on Monday.
However, the Jazz (4-4) still are trying to prove that they can be a good road team, not merely a unit that needs flukes 3-pointers by Al Jefferson, anyone? to win away from EnergySolutions Arena. The evidence to that point is slim: Entering the second game of a four-game road trip, the Jazz are 1-4 on the road.
The Celtics (4-3) provide a rare road experience. At TD Garden, the Jazz will play beneath 17 championship banners and a against one of the most successful franchises of the last decade.
