|To call this "unexpected" would be an understatement.|
On an afternoon when ABC is airing Clippers vs. Knicks at 1 pm, and Lakers vs. Heat at 3:30, who would have guessed the day's marquee matchup would occur later in the evening?
Two weeks ago Rajon Rondo had just torn his ACL, Boston was in the midst of a 6 game slide, and the C's were faced with the daunting task of going up against the defending champion Heat. At that time nobody could have even dreamed of the Nuggets and Celtics entering this game winners of a combined 15 straight. In fact, according to Elias Sports Bureau, Boston is the first team in NBA history to have a win streak of 6 or more, followed by a losing streak of at least 6, and then immediately followed by another 6+ game winning streak.
