    One of the best defenses ever

    Sports illustrated has a must read on the Celtics resurgence. That basically points out the level of the defense over the last ten games has been historically good. Here was the most interresting quote to me.

    "In the 159 minutes in which Boston’s four best defenders — Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Bradley — have shared the court, the Celtics have surrendered just 81.7 points per 100 possessions, per NBA.com. No four-man group that has logged at least 250 minutes this season has even cracked the 84.0 barrier."

    Check out the rest.

    Defensively, it is apparent the Celtics have been scary good lately.  If that pattern continues, banner number 18 will hang in the Garden in June!

    As Always,
