Well, the All-Star break is basically here, and the Boston Celtics are rolling.
Despite hearing the news that they would now be without Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger for the remainder of the season, the Celtics won seven straight before ultimately falling to the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night, the loss likely coming because Boston had just won a triple-overtime affair against the Denver Nuggets the night before.
Clearly, the C's have chosen fight instead of flight, and now, GM Danny Ainge will probably look to add pieces instead of blowing up the roster. He may have to make a move now that it appears Leandro Barbosa is done for the year, as well.
It seems like everyone on the Celtics has been playing well recently, so it's time to give credit where credit is due...and to hope one player in particular finally wakes up.
