The same can be said of the Celtics as a whole, as Doc Rivers' group has now won five in a row after dismantling the Miami Heat on national television on Sunday night. Rondo has recorded 13 straight double-digit assist games, putting to rest any doubt that people may have had in him after he was the subject of trade speculation for much of this season.
Kevin Garnett is another player who has elevated his game of late, proving that he has plenty left in the tank during what was thought to be the twilight of his career. In fact, by shifting over the center, not only can Brandon Bass start, but The Big Ticket may have extended his career an additional three or four years.
NESN.com Celtics beat writer Ben Watanabe caught up with NESN.com assistant editor Ricky Doyle to discuss the impact that Rondo and Garnett have had during the Celtics' recent hot streak, as well as the sudden outburst we've seen from Avery Bradley.
The C's look like a completely different team nowadays after experiencing some early-season struggles, but the road is only going to get more difficult from here.
