The Start of A Streak? Celtics 89, Hawks 81

 

We’ll have full grades on this second half masterpiece later this afternoon, featuring a triple-double from Rajon Rondo and one of the best defensive efforts off a back-to-back we’ve seen in years. For now, I’ll let Chris Forsberg from ESPNBoston do the talking:

The Celtics now have won two in a row. That shouldn’t be anything to celebrate for a team with championship desires, but you gotta start somewhere. Boston hadn’t put together consecutive wins since Dec. 8-12, and now it has a chance to match a season-high three-game winning streak (Nov. 10-14) when it visits the Atlantic Division-leading New York Knicks on Monday at Madison Square Garden. 

You can’t help but wonder whether this is a stretch in which the Celtics finally put it together. A loss Saturday would have sent them back to square one again. Instead, Boston put its best all-around defensive effort and its best comeback effort together on back-to-back nights. There was an increased swagger in the Celtics’ voices and body language after Friday’s win, and Saturday had to put even more strut in their step.

Much more on the way later today….

    The defense anything but rests.

    I'm loving the thought process I am having here that perhaps these guys are getting it defensively thru the return of Avery and the energy he brings. The offense still has work to do, as Pierce single handed offensive effort won't be enough to keep us in games night in and night out. Jeff Green's new role (standing on the perimeter during offensive trips, watching other players, and not even PRETENDING he's going to help crash the offensive glass when shots go up <instead getting ready to turn back towards the defensive end as shots go up>) has Danny Ainge looking particularly foolish. Nothing like a 9 million dollar bench fixture. Perhaps they can get him working with the Gatorade guys to fill up cups for the players that know what they are doing, or he can pick up KG's warmup gear off the floor when KG checks back into games? Maybe pass out sweat towels? Gotta earn that money some how.

    You guys need more writers as the flow of new stories has become a trickle.

    Agreed Red, its like reading a dripping faucet if that makes sense lol.

    And BIG the Gatorade jobs already been given to Collins unless he needs help with that too. He’ll Green would probably miss the cup anyway and get the floor all sticky.

    Personal memo to Ainge:
    No one likes Green but you. Dump him unless you want to see this team struggle to maintain .500

    I think the swagger or "energy" is back!! Last two games reminded me of 2008 the way opposing teams started to second guess and lose their confidence. Basketball is 90% mental imo, and I think teams were capitalizing on the celtics lack of confidence. It was palpable, and when opponents smell blood that is when we have rookies and 3rd stringers posting career nights on us. Right now, we are instilling fear again with our relentless defense, and I think we can only improve from here!

    getting lazy here on the hub…. Good post, already read the espn article… Maybe we can read about this game before they play the knicks? Great game btw.

    Joseph and Varnado are gone, per Marc Stein and the rest of Twitter. Today was the last day to waive unguaranteed deals before they became guaranteed for the year.

    Just clears up a few extra thousands around the tax apron allowing more options for trades down the road, I'm not too broken up about losing either of them.

  • Sophomore

    I am pleased.

    Can I have some more?
