The Celtics found themselves down by 18 points at one point last night, but they fought their way back and defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder on their home court 101-94.
The win marked their 7th win in a row and it is the first time in NBA history that a team has won 7 in a row after an 0-2 start. Kyrie struggled in the first half scoring only 3 Points, but he turned it on in the 2nd half finishing with 22 points. His 2nd half highlight reel was spectacular, if you missed it, check it out:

Al Horford also contributed to the Celtics comeback by making two huge three pointers late in the fourth as well as a deep two that ended up putting the game away. Horford finished with 20 PTS, 8 REB.
This Celtics team made a statement last night, they’re not screwing around and they’re the real deal. Doing what they did last night to a high power western conference team was a major statement. If you’re not hyped about this team, you should be.
The Celtics and their NBA best record head to Orlando to take on the Magic Sunday evening.
