The Celtics just finished a stretch of 3 games in 8 days as they and the 76ers played for the 3rd time of the season this time in London. The Celtics went into that game 2-0 against the 76ers this season with both wins being with a double digit win and looking to gain a full game over either the Raptors or the Cavaliers who had to face each other that same night. The 76ers started the game using the hot shooting of J.J. Redick to open up a 22 point lead over the Celtics in the first half. The 76ers still lead by 9 at halftime and pushed the lead back to double digits early in the 3rd only for the real Celtics to show up and ultimately take the lead and push their own lead all the way to 19 before ultimately winning for the 3rd time in 3 tries against the 76ers by double digits. The Celtics after beating the 76ers on top of beating the Timberwolves and the Nets in a back to back set just 5 days earlier now sit with a 7 game winning streak which includes wins over 3 current playoff teams in the Rockets, Cavs and Timberwolves. Meanwhile the Celtics now sit only 1 loss behind the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the NBA at the halfway mark. So we talked  with Celtics fan Chris Langseth as we discuss what happened over the last week with the 3 wins for the Celtics. As well as the incident that occured in that Celtics/76ers game that saw Celtics big man Marcus Morris and 76ers rookie Ben Simmons get into it. Also what about the Raptors and Cavs who prevailed in this matchup that could be a preview of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals and did the Cavs defense get fixed or are their issues that have caused them to get blown out in 3 of their first 4 games of the month continuing
