27-2: Best start to a season in NBA history.
19 consecutive wins: Longest winning streak in Celtics history.
It’s a good night when you can set both of those records. Philly had no chance to win this game. Maybe…if KG, Pierce and Ray all got stuck in traffic and missed the game (That nearly happened to Perk and Leon who didn’t arrive until a half-hour before tip due to the ridiculous traffic in and around the city).
The Celtics won this game (110-91) at the 3pt line (6-13 to Philly’s 0-10) and on the free throw line (29-34 FT to Philly’s 17-27).
As you can tell by the picture above, Big Baby is doing much better following his accident on the Mass Pike. His status for Thursday’s game won’t be decided for another day or so.
You think our fans are ready to thrash the Lakers? The “Beat LA” chant started midway through the 4th quarter.
FWIW, Mike Gorman said this Celtics team is better than the ’86 team.
“Classic Boston…that’s whats up.” – KG on the Beat LA chant in the Garden.
