Boston Celtics Are Tied for the Atlantic Division Lead

boston_celtics_2013 [1]The Boston Celtics have won four in a row, improved to .500 (4-4), and right now that is good enough to lead the Atlantic Division (tied with Philadelphia).

There are things we can pick apart with this streak, we certainly can question its sustainability, but the fact is the Celtics are hustling, getting some easy buckets in transition and winning games. Combine that with the slow starts for the Knicks and Nets, and you have an Atlantic Division upside-down cake.

During this mini-streak the Celtics’ defense has been almost flat with the start of the season, maybe marginally better but not significantly — it is the Boston offense that is fueling the run.

And they are doing it all without Rajon Rondo.
