Well, last week was some what of a down week for the Celtics going 2-2. The Celtics will look to rebound this week and improve there NBA best 28-4 record. They Celtics play three games this week vs Portland, Washington and New York. The Celtics should be able to win all three if they stayed focused and don't have jet lag flying back to the East Coast. Let's break down the Week.
December 30th at 10:00 PM ET
Celtics vs Trail Blazers
The Celtics will take on the Portland Trail Blazers up in Portland later tonight. I think this will end up being the toughest test for the Celtics and the most entertaining game of the week. I have a good feeling the Celtics will have no trouble taking care of the Knicks or Wizards but the Trail Blazers are 19-12 and been having a great season. The Celtics will need to be able to slow down Brandon Roy who is the Blazers leading scorer at 23 points a game. The Celtics should be ready as it wasn't a long bus ride or plane flight away from Sacramento and they had an off day on Monday. I think the Celtics take care of the Blazers and win 104-96.
Friday January 2nd at 7:30 PM ET
Celtics vs Wizards
This is the second game of the week for the Celtics and probably the least entertaining and an easy win for the Celtics. I don't see the 6-23 Wizards to be much of a challenge for the Celtics, in Boston. I picked the Wizards to play a tight game with the Celtics they last time they played in D.C. and they got killed 122-88 and I see this game about the same. The Wizards in my mind are a surprise to be this bad. I never saw them at 6-23, ever with Arenas down. I think the Celtics win 124-91.

Celtics vs Knicks
The Celtics end the week with a pretty good game with the Knicks in MSG. I also enjoy to watch the Celtics play in New York and this should be another fun game. The Celtics should also pick up another win and end the week at 3-0. The Knicks are having a pretty bad season at 11-18 and last in the Atlantic Division. Mike D'Antoni doesn't seem to have his team on the right track right now as they have lost 6 games in a row. I see the Celtics winning 114-96.

The Celtics had another very successful week. They had four games and won all 4 of them. When you win every game in the week you can't complain as a fan. The Celtics extended there winning streak from 14 games to 18 games this week and picked up wins 23-26. PG Rajon Rondo set his career high mark in points, twice. On Monday he scored 25 points vs the Jazz which was a career high at the moment and then on Sunday vs the Knicks he pasted his currently career high when he scored 26 points. A very good week for the Rondo and the Celtics.

The Celtics played another impressive game tonight. They beat the Knicks 124-105 in Boston. It's now 18 in a row for the red hot Celtics as they picked up there NBA leading 26th win tonight. The Celtics are just playing amazing basketball, just beating up everyone in there path. The Knicks didn't stand much of a chance tonight as I figured. I didn't see the Knicks to have much of a chance tonight. Anwyays, let's break down tonight's game.

Next up for the red hot Celtics are the New York Knicks. The game is tomorrow night at 6:00 PM in Boston. The Celtics who are now winners of 17 games in a row will look to extend that streak to 18 games while picking up there NBA best 26th win of the season. They should have no trouble winning this game in my mind but the Knicks could give the Celtics a challenge and possibly win the game. Will have to wait and see.

In my mind the Celtics should have no trouble taking care of the Knicks. I see them winning this game and improving there winning streak to 18 games. I can see the Celtics blowing out the Knicks and bringing in a big lead into the locker room at halftime and this never really being a game, but as I said I see the Celtics winning 114-93.
