Why Nobody Should Be Counting Out the Boston Celtics

With a recent trouncing of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics have now won six straight games and have climbed into the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference.

Six straight. Yes, that is six straight wins without All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo at the helm of the offense. 

Sometimes things just don't make a whole lot of sense in the NBA, but at the moment, the Celtics are the hottest team in the conference. What this all means down the road is anybody's guess. One thing seems to be for sure: This team isn't going down quietly.

With Rondo and Jared Sullinger out for the season, the cupboard is still hardly bare. Boston has a strong veteran presence and a few players who are finally getting to stretch their legs a bit. Avery Bradley and Chris Wilcox are improving every day since their returns.

For the time being, if you're using utensils, keep your forks clear of the Celtics. They seem to be far from done.
