The Boston Celtics, winners of 15 of their last 19 games were once weary of a New York Knicks team that was just three games away from them. Fast forward a month and the New York Knicks look like a shell of that team, suffering 15 losses in 18 games.
The Celtics are still looking for ways to be more efficient and improve despite their current winning situation.
“Teams in the NBA they still don’t respect us. And we know that,” guard Isiah Thomas said. “We go into every game with a chip on our shoulder and knowing that we gotta earn the respect. We gotta earn what we get and take what’s ours.”
