BOSTON (CBS) – The Celtics have beat the Lakers in Los Angeles and the Heat in Miami.

Now if they could just beat the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

The Celtics return from the All Star break to the only place they have not won in since Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen came aboard in 2007. Boston has lost six straight at Oracle Arena, with their last victory coming back in 2003. That night Mike James ran the point for the Celtics and Vin Baker was still a starter in the NBA.

The meeting with the Warriors kicks off a four game road trip for Boston, the second time in a month they have had to travel out West. The trip includes games with the Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz.

Shaquille O’Neal has been ruled out by coach Doc Rivers as he deals with a sore Achilles. The Celtics are hopeful guard Delonte West can make his return from a broken wrist suffered back on November 24. The return of West would give the Celtics some much-needed depth, and another option off the bench.
