O Say Can You See


Last night the Celtics met up with the Houston Rockets, owners of the second longest win-streak in NBA history, and when the game was over the Rockets had been shot down. It only makes sense that the Celtics would be the ones to beat them, after all, our football team from New England? The Patriots. Those awesome missiles that shoot down rockets? The Patriot. Made by? Raytheon. Home base? Massachusetts.

It was preordained by God. Or, if we want to use his real name, Red Auerbach.

The first half was somewhat exciting, ending up in a 40-40 tie with neither team having a real advantage. For a little while the Rockets made a run, at one point going up by 8 but the Celts came back and tied it up.

Once the second half started the Rockets had no chance. Their star player shot 4-11 from the field, and no one on the Rockets had more than 15 points. Meanwhile the Celtics defense was RELENTLESS, holding the Rockets to 33% shooting. Final score? Celts 94, Rockets 74. If it weren’t for a last second shot, the Celts would have won by 23, the number of games that the Rockets were going for, hows that for symmetry.

Kevin Garnett finished the game with the truest kind of double double, 22 points and 11 rebounds. He’s a gentleman and a damn fine dresser to boot.

“Yeah, that’s my wife. It’s good to be a 7 foot tall multi-millionaire”

Even without Ray Allen, the Celtics stood up and showed why they are the owners of the best record in the league. That said, I’m still not convinced Lebron doesn’t manhandle them in the playoffs, but for now, with the way Rondo is playing, Sam “The Alien” Cassell’s veteran leadership and the sheer awesomeness that comes from having a man known as Big Baby on the team, things are looking up.

This has been the first time in years that I actually care about the Celtics once more, when I can watch their games and not scream at the television.

As a former limited partner of the Celtics, I am quite the authority.
