5 in a row, Celtics drop Rockets 103-91

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

This team is just night and day different from where they were a couple weeks ago. Makes me wish I had Rip Van Winkled this season until Bradley got back.

This team is just so much more fun to watch now. Yes, the winning obviously helps, but it is everything from the body language to the hustle plays to the high-energy defense. It is night and day from before Bradley returned. It isn't just Avery, of course, but the whole team has stepped up to play the way we knew they could.

Let's give some credit to Jared Sullinger as well. It sure didn't take long for this rookie to figure things out and prove that he belongs in this league. He's got some great teachers in Doc and KG, but he's got a natural instinct and intelligence about him that lends itself to success. It is the little things like shooting quickly off the rebound so the defense doesn't have time to react. I could get used to seeing double-doubles out of him.

It isn't just the young guys either. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett took turns taking the lead on offense (Pierce in the 3rd quarter and KG in the 4th).

Nice little game from Jeff Green as well. His "wow, nice dunk" average seems to be up lately.

This team is just night and day different from where they were a couple weeks ago. Makes me wish I had Rip Van Winkled this season until Bradley got back.

Nice win. Nice win streak. Keep it rolling.
