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.”
Tickets for tomorrow’s game are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer your Celtics on to the playoffs!
Their run and gun style has paid off and the Boston Celtics have won five of their last seven games including a 100-95 win over the Utah Jazz last night for their 11th straight home win. Jae Crowder led the Celtics with 22 and Isiah Thomas chipped in 18 points and nine rebounds.
“We’re really locking in, and being resilient and believing in one another. And we’re believing in what coach Brad draws up for us,” Crowder said. “We’ve been doing a great job when it’s crunch time of finding the right shot. That takes lot of togetherness, and I think we’ve shown that. We gotta continue to show that to win games.”
The team has a day of practice before hosting the Portland Trailblazers (32-28) tomorrow night at the Garden. Get your tickets now and help cheer on your Celtics as they gather momentum for the upcoming playoffs.
