Boston Celtics Continue to Make Quiet Work of the East


Though it’s hard to gauge off last night’s blowout because of the quality of the competition, the Celtics sure look to be hitting their stride at a great time. No one is seriously banged up. They’re on a 10-game run since their Feb. 22 loss in Phoenix. They’ve won 11 straight at home since the Jan. 23 loss to Toronto. They’ve added the final two pieces to their roster in P.J. Brown and Sam Cassell. They are at the top of the two statistical categories they hold near and dear – points allowed and defensive field goal percentage – and last night they shot 56 percent over the first three quarters. They led by 10 after one, by 20 at the break, and by 32 after three. Click here for more from the Boston Globe.
