C’s Bloody Good

Posted by rich on December 31st, 2007

You know what, you’ve got to love this Celtics team. I haven’t watched as many games as I would like to, but every time I tune in they are just fun to watch. And now they’ve gone out out on the west coast and run the table, 4-0. Not bad for a team that couldn’t get out of its own way last year.

Right now the C’s stand at 26-3, the best record in the NBA. They’ve already eclipsed last year’s win total and show no signs of slowing down. If they just go .500 the rest of the way they’ll finish above 50 wins. They should easily win at least 60 and only Detroit seems likely to challenge them for the No. 1 playoff spot in the east.

I knew that they’d be better, but this is ridiculous. They play with so much energy and go for the jugular. I’m still not a huge NBA fan, but this team is making me a Celtics fan again. I think that’s a good thing.

Happy New Year. Hope you all stay safe tonight. I’m too old for partying anymore and the wife’s got what I had earlier in the week, which means it’ll probably be me and The Bourne Ultimatum tonight.
