"Celtics Basketball" -?By now we all know what this truly means, or we all have our different, but similar, definitions for it. For our readers sake we will give you Gino's Jungle's definition of Celtics basketball.

?

Celtics Basketball -?(Cel-ticks-bahs-kit-ball) noun - A type of basketball that is played by a group of men in green (or white)?uniforms. This type of basketball consist of a fiery offense that seems to score willingly and a dominant defense that takes no prisoners.

?

Tonight the Celtics continued their four game road trip with a stop in Charlotte to take on the Bobcats, let's just say they played "Celtics Basketball". The Celtics played the best basketball we have seen from them in awhile and?as a result they?left Charlotte with a 190-80 victory. The Celtics move to 14-4 on the season and 2-0 on the four game road trip.

?

The past few games against Toronto and Miami we have been noticing great improvements from the Celtics offensively, and tonight that did not change. The Celtics came out and proved to us they had even more, the offense was firing on all cylinders as the Celtics scored a season high 62 points in the first half. Keep in mind that this was also against the best defense, statistically, in the entire league. Not bad right? I don't know about you but I wasn't complaining.

?

On the defensive side of things the Celtics were, as I like to refer to it, dominant. The Celtics did not let anything come easy to the Bobcats tonight. They may have not matched their defensive effort of their last game against Charlotte, in which they only allowed 59 points. But what they did do is limit a very good and much improved Charlotte Bobcats offense. For the second straight game the Celtics held thier opponent to 90 points or less.?The Celtics also?held the Bobcats to 40% shooting and 18% from behind the arc (2-10).

?

Tonight Ray Allen returned to the vintage Jesus Shuttlesworth that I know and love. Ray was, in lack of better words, stroking it from downtown. Ray made a season high five three pointers on six attempts tonight, proving to the doubter (I was one of them), that he still has it from downtown. Ray totaled 27 points tonight on 6-9 shooting, he was also 10-10 from the charity stripe. Speaking of the charity stripe the Celtics as a tem?shot 90% (26-29) from the free throw line.

?

In other news Kendrick Perkins is a beast. As I said multiple times throughout the game "Perk was doin werk". Perk grabbed his fourth double-double of the season scoring a season high 21 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. Perk made a strong case tonight to Celtics fans, and other NBA fans, as to why he should be considered for the all-star squad. One of our twitter friends, KWAPT, started an official "Vote for Perk" blog during tonight's game. You can visit it here and use the widget on the site to vote for the beast.

?

Let me just end by saying what a game. This game is the best thing that has happened to me in weeks, I am glad I finally witnessed "Celtics Basketball" one more time. Hopefully there will be many more games like this in the future, if they can bring it like they did tonight it will be tough for anyone to beat them.
