Former Houston Rockets head coach Rudy Tomjanovich once said: “Don’t ever underestimate the heart of a champion.” The Boston Celticsis definitely showing that at this point of the season, with the playoffs just a month away. Boston has been in the bottom half of the top eight teams for most of the season but a sudden turnaround after the all-star break has them holding on to the fourth seed in the East. Owners of Boston Celtics tickets have always been there for their team through thick and thin this season and what their team is showing this season is definitely a good thing for them.
Boston won their 17th championship in 2008, in the same season that the triumvirate of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett was formed. With the Big Three still intact and with Rajon Rondo still at the helm for the Celtics, it is never a good idea to count the C’s out for title contention despite their season struggles.
The Celtics entered the all-star break on a five-game skid which dropped their record to 15-17. The midseason festivity was certainly what the C’s has been looking for to freshen up their legs and get back on track for one last shot at the title. They opened up the second half of the season with a five-game tear. Currently, they are also on a five-game winning streak. Boston is 16-4 since the all-star break and it is definitely a cause of concern for other teams in the East. Their amazing run in the second half of the season has let them take over the top spot in the Atlantic Division. They have a one-game lead over the Philadelphia 76ers.
In their current five-game winning streak, Bostonhad a statement win over the Miami Heat routing the reigning Eastern Conference champs by 19. This was the first visit of the Heat this season and Rondo made sure that they exact revenge to the team that eliminated them last playoffs. Rondo, who always shines during big games such as the matchup versus the Heat, was an absolute beast versus Miami. The three-time all-star dropped a scintillating stat line of 16 points, 14 assists, and 11 rebounds to lead the rout.
The 26-year-old Rondo has been on a roll when it comes to assists. He has dropped 10 or more dimes in the past 13 games of Boston. In the past 20 games of the season, Rondo only has two games of less than 10 assists. Rondo had 219 assists in the month of March, which broke franchise record for assists in a calendar. Boston legend Bob Cousy held the previous record of 210 assists for 56 years.
Aside from Rondo, Garnett has also been a revelation for the C’s in this second half of the season. Ever since Garnett was placed to the center spot, Boston has risen along with KG. As the team’s center, the 35-year-old former MVP has averaged 16.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.43 blocks while shooting 53 percent on the floor. Before the move, his numbers are 14.3, 7.5, 2.5, 0.67, 0.79, and 49.1 percent.
