The Boston Celtics are soaring back up through the NBA rankings after a five game winning streak that can be described as nothing short of “Simply Amazing”. A week ago things were not looking good for our Celtics squad. They returned beat up from a bruising west coast road trip. They lost games they easily could have won!Their defense was lagging. Those following the team were getting frustrated.I wrote an article calling to rally true Celtics fans. Celtics nation and the team responded with an impressive overwhelming win over the Indiana Pacers in Boston! However, this was only the start of something special as during the span of the next week…. The Celtics would string together an impressively hard fought five game winning streak! This takeoff was marked with an exclamation point (!) last Friday night when the Celtics topped a well-improved Houston Rockets Team by a winning margin of 12 points! Interspersed with this impressive victory were wins of 8 points over the Atlanta Hawks and the Phoenix Suns.The highlight of the week was a thrilling victory over the Front-Running New York Knicks by a margin of 6 points. This was the talk of the town as not only did the Celtics beat a bitter rival…in New York…, but Anthony and Garnett got into a jawing match  before,after, and during the game. This shows the Celtics haven’t given up. They won’t be pushed over.  Furthermore,  they are responding to the fans rally call for Championship Banner #18 to be put up in the rafters of the TD Banknorth Garden! We said it before….. Now let’s say it again!!!! Go Celtics Go!
