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.”

The Boston Celtics made darn sure they did not look past yesterday’s game to tomorrows and took care of business even shooting just 41% and beat the Chicago Bulls 105-100. Now the task at hand could be no bigger than tomorrow nights game in The Garden against an undefeated Warriors team.
“They’re the talk of the NBA,” Celtics Guard Isiah Thomas Jr. said. “We’re the next game, and hopefully we can get one.”
The Celtics will have to play at the top of their game when they face the Warriors.
“And on Friday we’re going to take it as another game,” Jared Sullinger said. ” I know they’re coming in with a hot streak. They’re undefeated. But we can’t look at it as a Super Bowl. We’ve got to look at it as, it’s another game, another chance to get another win, and carry ourselves like that. Because if we get over there and try to get too excited, they’re just going to blow us out.”

The Boston Celtics came out on fire Sunday and ran roughshod over the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first 14 minutes, shooting 57% and leading after the first quarter and into the second by eight points. Then things settled down for the Cavaliers who had multiple players with zero playoff experience including Kevin Love who clanked his first five shots. Love would go on to score 14 points over the next 18 minutes.
“It’s very important that Kev stays involved,” LeBron James said. “For our ultimate goal, Kevin has to be in the rhythm or at least touching the ball and feel like he’s a part of what we’re doing, which he is.”
The Celtics were led by Isiah Thomas Jr. with 22 points and 10 assists off the bench.
“We’re still confident,” Thomas said. “Coach (Brad Stevens) said we did a lot of really great things and we did some bad things. They kind of evened out, and that’s why we ended up losing the game. So we’re still confident.”
Game two is tonight at 7. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Boston Celtics!
