Celtics reign atop Eastern Conference!

Although they've failed to best Chicago & Miami respectively in meetings thus far, the Boston Celtics have lifted themselves into the #1 spot in the Eastern Conference.

They are currently 21-7 and riding a 5 game win streak (current highest streak in the East) as they tackle yet another elite team in the west's Los Angeles Clippers (22-7), after falling to the Spurs (19-9) a while ago.

With two wins above Chicago (19-9) & Miami (19-8), Boston's momentum is taking them places and the added help from surging reserve Josh Howard as of late (3 games above 20+) and the erratic yet phenomenal play of their stars is certainly part of the reason for it. Even more auspicious is the record for their last 10 games (8-2) compared to their adversaries, Miami (4-6) and Chicago (6-4).

Flashes of greatness can easily betray focus, but undoubtedly Boston is now playing their best ball of the season. As the road gets tougher and they face a more diverse series of opponents, can the reigning Celtics continue to turn heads up to the championship banners that grace the rafters of the TD Garden? Well, let's not get THAT ahead of ourselves.
