It's game No. 75 for the 2017-18 Celtics (51-23) as they wrap up their four-game western swing with the Utah Jazz (42-32) at the Vivint Smart Home Arena at 9:30 on ESPN.
The Celtics, despite being depleted, will look to end their road trip finale with a victory and make it five-wins in a row, while the Jazz, who are currently in seventh out West, look to climb up the standings after winning 12 of their last 13 games.
Boston will be without Marcus Morris (right ankle sprain) and possibly without Al Horford (left ankle sprain), as he's listed as questionable, while everyone on the Jazz are healthy, including old friends Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko.

The Celtics' newest acquisition, Xavier Silas, who signed a 10-day contract, participated in the team's shootaround earlier today and is ready to go if called upon.
Our newest member of the team, Xavier Silas, says that since he’s older, he doesn’t feel the need to do too much during his 10-day. Says he just needs to give the team whatever Brad asks for.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) March 28, 2018
