    C's Reign Supreme

    Nobody really expected a late January match-up against the Sacramento Kings at the Boston Garden to be much of a game, but then again, nobody talked to Eddie House about it. The Celtics handled the Kings 119-100, so there wasn't much competition happening, but there sure was excitement as the Celtics picked up their ninth straight win.

    Where did the excitement come from? Somewhere beyond the three point arch as Eddie House continued his absolute domination of the perimeter. House made 8 of 9 three pointers and is making a strong case for himself to participate in the 3-point shooting contest in the all star game.

    I have to be honest, when I watched Eddie House on Sunday against the Mavs, I thought he was a bit selfish and all he ever wanted to do was get the ball so he could shoot, but I have since changed my tone. The guy hussles on every play and is always looking to make the right play, which 8 times out of 9 last night he did.

    Then there was the small matter of Rajon Rondo who had another GAME and made a bigger case for himself to be included on the East roster of the All Star team (even though he'll probably be left off the list.) As goes Rajon so goes the Celtics and anytime that's the case you know a guy should be at least considered for the all-star roster.

    So the Celtics move on to prepare to play in Detroit on Friday. Nobody envy's that. Who wants to spend their Friday night in the Motor City? I know I don't. Looking for their 10th win in a row and to continue their second longest winning streak of the season, keeping hope alive that they will match or beat the season record set by the Bulls who went 72-10. I know the C's are aiming a little higher than that, 73-9, here we come!!
