Lee: C’s shooting for 20-game win streak

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On January 9, 2013 @ 10:51 pm In General | 3 Comments

Riding their longest winning streak of the season, the once-reeling Celtics [1] are beginning to get their swagger back. Just ask Courtney Lee [2].

After the C’s began a five-game homestand with their fourth straight win, an 87-79 victory over the Suns, Lee proclaimed: “We’€™ve got to get them all, and then go on the road and carry this momentum on. We’€™re trying to start a 20-plus-game winning streak. That’€™s what we’€™re trying to do.”

The Celtics improved to 18-17, climbing above .500 for the first time since Dec. 25. They own a 4-1 record since Avery Bradley’s return from shoulder surgery. Of course, the C’s have seen both sides of that coin, losing a season-high four straight games between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

“We definitely appreciate each one,” added Lee. “We started off slow, and we were a better team than that. It took a couple of practices of [coach] Doc [Rivers [3]] getting on us and us talking to each on the plane and whatnot to realize that we need to get out here and turn it up. And now that we’€™re on a four-game winning streak, we don’€™t want to look back. We want to keep that going forward.”
