Positive developments for Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics have won their last three games, against three opponents that are pretty terrible. Regardless of the fact they haven’t beat a quality opponent in awhile, it is still impressive, considering on most nights, even against the bottom dwellers of the league, they often are the less talented team. One of the biggest developments during this stretch is the continued...
