Four and oh looks oh so good.

Kevin Garnett's thirteen points per game and seven rebounds per game looks mighty good in the stat sheet.

Doc Rivers' coaching with under a minute left and up by eighteen means only one thing.....THEY'RE BACK!

Even though they are only four games into the 2009-2010 season, the new look Celtics are looking like there big bad 2007 selves. With Rajon Rondo's five year extension finally in the bank, he can finally get back to what he does best, running the offense with a plethora of scorers.

Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rasheed Wallace. Some players can only dream of this lineup around them. Rajon Rondo is living in heaven right about now.

Ray Allen is just being his old self, Mr.Clutch. Against the Chicago Bulls he hit two clutch three pointers in the fourth to put away the Bulls while Paul Pierce three three's of his own to help shut-down the Chicago Bulls, who made me say 'ehh' at the end, after a very poor performance.

Kevin Garnett is back and better than ever. Hes running the floor, a force under the hoop with the offensive and defensive rebounds, and, even though he is only averaging thirteen points, hes making a large contribution with those thirteen.

Everything is clicking welll with the Boson Celtics this year. Its looking like we will seeing number 18 raised to the rafters at the TD Garden.
