Sounds of the Game… Celtics 126, Bulls 108

What makes a great team is when it can constantly find way to get better even when things are already going so well. Doc Rivers [1] and staff worked with center Kendrick Perkins [2] to work on setting better screens and picks, convincing him that this would lead to better seals under the basket and eventually more scoring opportunities for him. The result? Perk scored a career high 25 points on Friday night, second only to Ray Allen’s 27 as the C’s (yawn-yawn) dispatched of the Chicago Bulls [3] 126-108 at TD Banknorth Garden [4]. Now, the Celtics [5] can match the team’s all-time winning streak mark of 18 on Sunday night against Quentin Richardson [6] and the Knicks at home. If victorious against New York, the chance to break it comes on Tuesday against another arch-rival, the Philadelphia 76ers [7].
