The Celtics topped the Raptors last night 90-77. Their defense is on top of their game and even without one member of the big three (Ray Allen), they were still able to pull off a victory over the Raptors.
The Celtics are 20-2. They have won 9 games in a row. The only problem is that they have played a cake schedule. They have not played any of the powerhouse teams in the West and they have only played a few good teams in the East. We will see how they do when Detroit comes to town this week.
