Boston Celtics: Keys to the Game Against the San Antonio Spurs

In the midst of the hoopla surrounding the NFL playoffs, college bowl games and the numerous coaching changes taking place, one of the most anticipated matchups of the NBA season is fast approaching. The Boston Celtics are preparing to take on the San Antonio Spurs at the TD Garden on Wednesday, January 5.

The Spurs enter the game with the best record in the NBA, currently sitting at 29-5. The Celtics cling to the best record in the Eastern Conference, currently holding a 26-7 record and holding a half-game lead over the red-hot Miami Heat.

With the Spurs playing solid, consistent basketball, and with a largely healthy team, they face a Boston team playing without Kevin Garnett, who is currently nursing a calf strain and will be out for at least a couple of weeks. However, star point guard Rajon Rondo has returned for the Green after missing several weeks with an ankle injury.

With their floor general back, Boston will regain a huge weapon on their offense, and will look to use their solid defense to slow down a hot San Antonio squad. This is definitely a good offense vs. defense matchup, and it will be interesting to see which side can pull out the victory.

Let's take a look at how these teams stack up.
