Another Bounce Back for the Celtics

Give the Celtics credit, whenever they take a loss (it’s only happened three times) they always bounce back in a huge way. This time, the C’s destroyed the Bulls 107-82 ( box score). Chicago only had one starter in double figures. Simply pathetic…more on this later.

First, I must congratulate Paul Pierce on leading the C’s to victory. Pierce scored 22 points, including 4-6 from 3-point range and 6-7 from the free throw line. Pierce’s performance has been much more consistent as of late. Coming off the heels of an Eastern Conference Player of the Week nod, Pierce has continued to play at a very high level as the now-21-3 Celtics continue to rack up the victories.

Ben Gordon was the only Bulls starter in double figures, scoring 19 points with 0 rebounds and 0 assists. It was a gross game otherwise for the former UConn star. Starting point guard Kirk Hinrich had only 2 points and 2 assists to go with 4 turnovers. I know the Celtics are out of the Bulls league, but I didn’t know this much talent separated the teams.

It’s going to take a return of Michael Jordan (10 years younger and on the court) to help the struggling Bulls. After last season, there’s no reason the Bulls can’t play better as a team. It just seems that the whole team is in a collective slump. 9-15 just won’t cut it in the NBA playoff picture. The team really needs to finish strong the rest of the way in order to make the playoffs.

Anyway, the Celtics ran off eight straight wins to start the season, then lost a couple in a five game stretch, then reeled off another nine wins in a row. Is there really a possibility that the Celts reel off 10 in a row?
