Best Celtics Start EVAH
December 12, 2008
“The Celtics pushed to a franchise-best 21-2 start by hammering the Washington Wizards, 122-88, at the Verizon Center. With their 13th straight win, the Celtics also tied the sixth-best winning streak in franchise history. With two more wins, the defending champs will match the best 25-game start in league history.”
“House (14 points, 4 of 5 on 3-pointers) nailed two straight threes to put Boston up, 101-77, with 8:35 remaining in the fourth quarter. After the Wizards followed by calling a timeout, House told the crowd to go home. Many of the 20,173 seemed to follow his order.”
All 5 starters scored in double digits. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce combined for 44 points.
KG underperformed, however, and there’s worry that he has a knee injury.
James Posey and the Hornets tonight as the C’s go for 14 in a row.
