There simply is no way to overstate how important this win was for this franchise. There just isn't enough hyperbole to do it justice. I feel like 10 years of daemons were exorcized in one night. Of all the moments to break the streak, this is the most perfect. This season, at this moment, on this day, it is pure poetry.
This season has been a quasi-deja-vu of the 96 season with one big exception. This year we have hope. Hope in the form of Al Jefferson, Paul Pierce, Delonte West, Rajon Rondo, and others. More than ever I feel encouraged by the future of this team. More than ever, I feel like the fates that have conspired against us are turning a friendly eye once again. I feel hope again.
