The first month of the season has been filled with streaks for the Boston Celtics. Currently, the Celtics own a 6-10 record, but they are just one game behind the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors (6-8).
After losing six straight games, the Celtics have won two consecutive road games over the Atlanta Hawks (94-87) last Saturday and the Charlotte Bobcats (96-86) on Monday. Also, the Celtics are 5-5 against Eastern Conference opponents.
While many fans may want the Celtics to tank, the Eastern Conference is so bad that the Celtics could make the playoffs. They sit in the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference, but there are only three teams (Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, and the Hawks) who are over .500. The Chicago Bulls just lost their MVP point guard Derrick Rose for the season after he underwent surgery for a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Rose had torn his left ACL in April 2012 and sat out all of last season.
Here are tweets of interest from Celtics’ players:
What’s a good spot to eat in Charlotte?
— Kris Humphries (@KrisHumphries) November 25, 2013
Kris Humphries wanted to know a good place to eat in Charlotte on Sunday. This is shocking because this is Humphries’ ninth season in the NBA and he has spent the majority of his career playing for teams in the Eastern Conference (Raptors, New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets, and Celtics). In Humphries’ defense, he may have not spent much time in Charlotte because his team was playing on consecutive nights or he may have not traveled due to injury. He may wanted to try a new place. Whatever Humphries ate, it seemed to work in his favor. Humphries was 2-of-4 from the field with five rebounds as part of a solid bench effort for the Celtics in their win over the Bobcats.
Lil bro @JCrawford3rd had 27 tonite!! Like work
— Jordan Crawford (@jcraw55) November 24, 2013
Jordan Crawford was not the only member in his family who had a good game on Saturday night. Jordan’s younger brother, Jalen, scored 27 points for Valdosta State University. Jordan Crawford didn’t score as many points as his younger brother, but he did pile 10 assists. Crawford helped the Celtics to a come-from-behind victory over the Hawks in Atlanta.
