After an uncharacteristic loss in Philly last Sunday the Boston Celtics were able to show that there is nothing for Boston Celtics fans to worry about in the current moment! Isaiah Thomas is having some issues with knee problems but that is not going to stop this 2016-17 Celtics team from steamrolling through the rest of their schedule and perhaps taking their place among the upper echelons of the great Celtic teams of the past.
After all not only is Isaiah Thomas having a career breakthrough season but more importantly the Celtics team bounces back after bumps in the road like last week's Philly game. Enjoying an overall record of 47-26 heading into their next matchup with the Miami Heat.....the team finds itself in the driver's seat of the NBA's Atlantic Division and in prime position to be big-time playoff contenders. After dropping the contest in Philly the 2016-17 Boston Celtics bounced back to triumph with wins of 110-102, 109-100, and 130-120 respectively over the Wizards, Pacers, and Suns
The Celtics have a longstanding tradition of defending their home court and this year's squad is not much different as they dismantle the opposition frequently. They have been doing it with a high-octane high scoring offense that still wins when another player on the other team posts 70 points to no avail. It really is spectacular to see the Celtics offense perform like a well-oiled machine night after night. Coach Brad Stevens really deserves a lot of credit for bringing a system that works to Boston Basketball again. The games are fun to watch and each player has bought into their own important role as team players.
This being March we Basketball fans get to see some amazing displays of talent, sportsmanship, and excitement as the NCAA March Madness Tournament takes place. Many buzzer beaters and surprise endings remind us of why this game can be so entertaining to watch. Meanwhile in Boston.....the train grinds along night after night as the best pro Basketball franchise looks to add to their collection of 17 NBA Championships As Soon As Possible. Let's root for it to be sooner rather than later. Go Celtics Go!
