Game #39: Houston Rockets vs. Boston Celtics

New, comments

The Celtics are an intriguing team. Their point guard plays shooting guard and their shooting guard plays point guard. They have a plethora of veteran forwards. They have one of the leagues newest coaches and some promising young talent. When Rajon Rondo comes back later this month, the Celtics could be right back in the post season spotlight.
