What can I say except, ...I told you so! (yeah, I'm not above a little rubbing it in)
Back on November 21st we had just lost 3 of 5 games and things were looking kinda dour around here. I had a "darkest before the dawn" kind of feeling.
I'm making a few bold and contrarian predictions right now. The Celtics will win at least 5 games in a row starting Sunday night against the Knicks.
Done. This team is just too good to be held down for long. The wins have come against some not-too-great teams, so we aren't out of the woods yet. But it is a nice start. Now can they follow through on the 2nd prediction I made?
They will also lose at most 3 of the 14 games before meeting the Magic again on Christmas (so that's at least an 11-3 run).
So to make good on this prediction, they only need to go 6 - 3 before Christmas day. I think that is very doable.
As for thoughts on this game? Not much to say.
- The Kitty Cats still have a long way to go.
- Been waiting for Ray to take over a game and bump those averages up a bit.
- Another day, another great game by Perkins. He's been the definition of solid.
- Rondo has a steal in every game this season.
Nice win. Nice run. Lets keep it going.
