Avery Bradley's return doesn't stop the Celtics Tankometer from rising

After winning back to back games vs the Nets and Pistons, the Celtics have now dropped three in a row.  The last two were of the particularly unimpressive variety; first a 24-point home loss to the Knicks, followed by an 87-80 defeat at the hands of the Suns.  Last night vs Phoenix Boston shot a season low 30.9% from the field, and no Celtic players scored more than 11 points.  Avery Bradley finally returned from his ankle injury, but played just 17 minutes off the bench and didn't have much of an impact.

Boston's next two games are in New Orleans and Dallas.  The C's are currently 0-13 on the road vs the Western Conference this season, and if they don't take one of those two they'll finish the year win-less out west.  They follow that up with a home matchup against the Heat and a visit to Brooklyn.  The potential of an 0-4 week could send the Tankometer skyrocketing.

Last week: 56%
