Last night the Celts took their talent to South Beach and dominated the Heat at home. Keep in mind they’ve only lost four games all year at the American Airlines Arena. The red hot C’s have now taken two games from the Heat in ten days, pulling three games ahead of Philly for the division lead. A few months ago the Celtics wouldn’t have even been a topic of discussion come May, but post All-Star break has been good to them. They’ve gone from a team presumed to be ousted first round to a team that has potential for a strong playoff run.
Life is good in Beantown right now. Hard to complain when we’ve got the Celtics picking things up in the second half of the condensed season, the Bruins heading full speed into another playoff run, and a hefty 157 game schedule left ahead for the 1-4 Red Sox to turn things around. Oh, and word on the street is that Gronk’s out of the running for the Madden cover so we don’t have to worry about any curse breaking both his legs. Knock on wood.
