The Celtics and the “Anticlimactic” Division Preview

Less than a decade ago, the Atlantic Division appeared to be steamrolling to NBA dominance.

Despite sporting the league’s best defense, the Celtics allowed 111 points to the Nets in New Jersey Wednesday night.

Pierce Leads Celtics to Third Straight Win

Can you believe it? The Celtics have already reached the season’s midpoint. 41 games down, 41 games to go. Thanks to Paul Pierce’s effort in a 118-86 win over the Nets, the Celtics arrive at their season’s midpoint with less than 10 wins (like last year) and a 32-9 record.

In the spirit of the Celtics amazing comeback in Game 4 against the Lakers, I could only think of one other thing: the Celtics comeback against the New Jersey Nets all in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of the 2002 Eastern Conference Finals.

Celtics Have Other Players Besides the Big Three

Last night’s game, in which the Celtics beat the Nets 91-69 to improve to 7-0, was probably the most important win of the season. Yes, more important than the overtime win against Toronto.
