4 in a row, Celtics top Suns 87-79

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

We're on a roll now!

If not for a 17-0 run by the Suns in the 3rd quarter, this would all be good news. The bench stepped up and led the way tonight.

Happy surgery anniversary Jeff Green! A year ago you were on an operating table and tonight you scored a team high 14 points.

My love for Jared Sullinger is growing by the day. His 16 rebounds are the most by a Celtic this year and he chipped in 12 points for a nice little double double to boot. I expect those will become pretty common in the near future.

Nice to see Jason Terry get back into double digits as well.

The defense showed up again, and hopefully it is here to stay.

Green Street » Fast Break: Celtics extend win streak to four games

The Celtics are slowly climbing the NBA’s defensive ranks. After allowing 98.1 points per game through December, the C’s have gave up an average of just 86.3 points in Bradley’s first four games back. In his fifth, the Suns didn’t reach 70 points until 4:15 remaining in the fourth quarter. Even lineups that contain Green and Terry, who aren’t exactly known for their defensive prowess, appear to be grasping the C’s defensive schemes.
