Celtics with best record; on 11 game win streak

The Celtics, despite two losses so far, have been playing excellent team ball. And after crushing the Knicks in MSG, the Celtics have gone on to win 5 more straight games.

The only opponent that stands out is the Toronto Raptors, who played a hard gritty game, but ultimately lost due to 29 by Rajon Rondo in a high-scoring affair across the northern US border. They were succeeded by the Charlotte Bobcats, Orlando Magic, Washington Wizards and Brooklyn Nets, all of which failed to stop the steamrolling engine now known as the Boston Celtics.

Paul Pierce has a lot to be happy about. After a sluggish start, he's lit fire as of late, and even had a 35 point game against the Nets, while Shane Battier was busy containing Joe Johnson on the other end.

Free agency acquisition, Eddie House, has honed in his long ball as of late, scoring big and far above efficient from beyond the 3 point line. Added strong play by Kevin Garnett, Roy Hibbert and Hedo Turkoglu have made this quite the convincing run for Boston, as they improve to 19-2.
