Jaw dropping Celtics

The more I watch, I realize that what is jaw-dropping about Ray Allen 
is that he doesn't make my jaw drop.  He just performs every night.  
Other than game-winning shots, he doesn't do highlight reel stuff.  
Just another day at the office.

You're right about having a fun team to watch. There's winning and then 
there's
winning while having fun- it's great that we're doing both.

It's the dunks that get me, this one from Powe in particular (with the 
assist
from Rondo):

So that pretty much rules out House on my list, but I do appreciate a 
timely
3-pointer and I reckon the improbable ones are the best (from Ray in
particular).

As for Rondo, who definitely makes my jaw drop very often, my favourite 
play of
his was last year when he ran almost the length of the court and then 
dunked on
Jason Maxiell of Detroit:

Awesome.

Thanks Adam. You're not so
 much on House, huh? His threes are just so deadly
and so on-time, like Posey's were last year. I can imagine the icy 
dagger
through the heart that it must feel like for the other team.

But bottom line what 
a fun team we have to watch, huh? We are very 
lucky.
