MMPG: Team of the Week
It was a little more than a week ago when Celtics Coach Doc Rivers thought he had the "most miserable 8-2 team in the world." The defending champs were winning games, but they weren't winning in the same fashion as a year ago. Now that they have won five in a row, following an impressive 15-point victory in Toronto on Sunday, the Celtics have the same record as last season, but the team is still taking note of its flaws. Boston is seeking perfection, which is a pretty good way to avoid complacency.
The Celtics cruised through the first 12 games, then decided to hit the accelerator when the new-look Detroit Pistons came to town last Thursday. Boston beat Iverson and the Bad Boys, 98-80, and proved that despite the loss of James Posey, the Celtics (13-2) still have more than enough with Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. They remain the team to beat in the East.
