BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Celtics will try to sweep their four-game road trip when they make one final stop in Utah Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.

The C's have won four in a row, and five of six, to move within three-and-a-half games of the East-leading Raptors.

Boston lost to Utah by a dozen way back in mid-December. Rookie Donovan Mitchell's Jazz have been terrific the last two months with wins in 23 of 27. That's lifted them into a playoff position in the West. Mitchell's averaging 22 points during the run.

Celts are still missing Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart, but players like Terry Rozier, Jayson Tatum, and Marcus Morris have really shouldered the offensive load.

Morris is averaging 22 points on nearly 60 percent shooting and 65 percent from distance his last four games, even including Monday's early exit in Phoenix. X-rays came back negative on his sprained ankle after the win, and he said he wasn't too concerned.

The C's will continue to lean on Tatum. The confident rookie's averaging 18 points and 7 rebounds his last eight games.

Hear more from Morris on the secret to his recent solid stretch below.
