Break up the Celtics!

This blog is going to be very similar to the one I wrote here two days ago, as well as to what I posted on CelticsLife earlier today.  But that's OK, because the Celtics are suddenly awesome.  It doesn't seem to matter who they have on the floor (Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green got traded, Jared Sullinger went out for the year, now Isaiah Thomas is hurt and they're 3-0 without him), they just keep getting better.

For the last two months, the Indiana Pacers have been the best team in the NBA (read my article for Hoops Habit).  Tonight Boston knocked off Indiana, on the road, on the second night of back-to-back games (amazingly the Celtics are 7-1 in their last eight second halves of back-to-backs).

Boston has won four straight (and six of seven), something that hadn't happened since November 6-11, 2013.  It's also the longest current winning streak in the Eastern Conference.  At 29-36, the C's are now just half a game out of the playoffs.
