NBA: Celtics Winning Streak Continues, Beat Nuggets

| by

The Celtics came out on fire offensively and with a stifling defense. Since its the NBA, the Nuggets made a little run in the 2nd quarter, but the Celtics cruised to a 105 to 89 victory.

In his post game interview KG credited the Celtics win streak and blowouts to their defense. Offensively, Ray Allen was unstoppable finishing with 28 points.

Rondo returned from his assortment of injuries and finished with 13 assists, but looked noticeably bothered by his hamstring and/or plantar fasciitis. Personally I would be giving him the time off now. The C's didn't rest Perkins last year when his plantar fasciitis was bothering him throughout the year and by the playoffs he wasn't the same player he was earlier in the season. Who knows? Maybe his foot problems led to some overcompensation and was a reason for the knee injury. Tangent over. Thanks for indulging me.

KG had a solid 17 and 9 and Baby paced the bench with 16 and 6. Carmelo Anthony was a late scratch for the Nuggets who were led by Ty Lawson's 24 points.

Line of the night goes to Big Baby, who after getting into verbally with Nene (and avoiding a lame Nene head butt) was heard saying "Watch your mouth homie!" Next game tomorrow night in Philly.
