Sounds of the game… Celtics 110, 76ers 91

The Celtics [1] threw a Christmas party for family and friends in their locker room following their 110-91 win over the 76ers Tuesday night at TD Banknorth Garden [2]. They certainly had plenty to celebrate. In addition to the festive time of season, the Celtics family and friends cheered the fact that they are now owners of the longest winning streak in team history at 19 games. They also raised a toast to the team’s 27-2 start, the best 29-game opening to a season in NBA history. Up next, an NBA Finals [3] rematch with the Lakers in Los Angeles on Christmas Day. To get there, they took a red-eye cross-country flight but before that, they took time to reflct on the record and look ahead to what should be a classic game on Christmas at Staples Center [4].

Doc Rivers said he is not downplaying the sigificance of the 19-game streak [5].

Rivers heard the ‘Beat L-A’ chants and thought it was a great moment for the fans [6].

Paul Pierce on playing the Lakers in a rematch [7].

Kevin Garnett said winning 19 straight doesn’t mean anything if you don’t win a championship [8].

Ray Allen said the C’s are doing a great job of not looking too far ahead [9].

And be sure to read and hear what Philadelphia’s Andre Iguodala said about the Celtics [10], their streak, trash-talking and a certain reference to a perfect regular season in the NFL that didn’t end in a title.
