After acquired two superstars from Supersonics and Timberwolves, Boston Celtics has transformed into one of the competitive team in the East. After five consecutive games, obviously no team can stop Boston Celtics from dominating the game. The Big Trio combines for 68.8 average points per game, total contribution of 64% of the team averages (107.6). The "Big Ticket" Kevin Garnett grabbed 15.8 rebounds per game and currently leading the rebound board. Ray Allen became the hero in the game two againts Toronto Raptors by hitting the game winning 3-pointers. Ray Allen is definitely outstanding for the past five games (22.6 ppg) by shooting .578 percent from the field and .515 percent from the downtown. Paul Pierce as the "original" team leader performed equally well for the offense and defense. In offense, Paul scored 23.6 points per game, shooting .482 percent from the field and .391 percent from downtown. Besides of the super performance by the trio, there are two players also doing a good job as starters. They are PG/SG Eddie House and 2nd year guard Rajon Rondo. No doubt, Eddie House is a good player on the floor. I watched him played before when he was in Phoenix Suns. He is a very quick and sharp shooter. He is a better shooting guard than point guard. As for Rajon Rondo, I never watch him play before. For other bench players, they are doing great job as well. They are contributing 26.6 points per game from the bench.

For my opinion, the winning force they had now is impossible to stop by any team in the nba. But I'm waiting for the game when they face the toughest defense team in the NBA, Detroit Pistons on December 19. I don't really concern about how long winning streak they can make but I'm more concern to their performance against the championship team such as Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, and Dallas Mavericks. I'll just wait and see.....
