Two years ago the Celtics lost 18 games in a row. Now they've won 18 straight. Amazing how things can change so quickly. A couple quick bullets from the game.
- Rajon is playing at an All-NBA level right now. He took over in the third quarter, making 6 consecutive layups at one point. It was almost like he was playing a 10th grader, and I'm not just saying that because NateRob was guarding him.
- However I wonder when we'll see the Hack-A-Rondo strategy pop up in a close game. It will come.
- Last game the talk was of nicknames for Rondo and Perk to compliment GAP/Big Three. Maybe we just need a nickname for Rajon and something else for the supporting cast? (yes that's a joke)
- However, yet again, the Celtics built up a huge lead based on a scorching first quarter only to let the Knicks back into the game at half time.
