At the end of December we announced we would began to create our very own NBA's Top-25 list, mainly because it was the thought that we could come up with better lists collectively than the fellas on TNT. If you have been listening to the Causeway Street Podcast for the last few weeks we have been beating up on each other over our breakdown from 25 to 1. To conclude the overall discussion, we decided it's time to see reveal each person's lists, so there's no more confusion for the rest of the season.
The Celtics are in second place in the Eastern Conferance, and we here on Causeway Street have finally reached the end of our NBA's Top-25 list. As our midseason treat from us to all of you, we present our roundtable discussion special All-Star edition of the Top-5 Players in the National Basketball Association. Zach Peloquin of Off The Wagon Sports Radio joins us once again as we breakdown our individual lists and why we believe each player deserves their rank. Who do you think got the majority of the votes at number one? There's only one way to find out by clicking the link below to listen to episode 70

In a controversial ending on the last night in the NBA before All-Star weekend, the Celtics looked like they were on their way to win their fifth straight until Jimmy Butler hit two clutch free-throws with 0.9 seconds left to lift the Bulls past Boston in a 104-103 victory.

Kelly Olynyk is quietly becoming one of the Celtics' most reliable players players off the bench.
For the fifth straight game, Olynyk led the reserves in scoring. He finished with 16 points on 6-of-8 shots and 7 rebounds in the Celtics' 116-108 win over the 76ers.
When you hear Paul Pierce's name, it's unequivocally synonymous with the city of Boston. Without a shadow of doubt he is what represents it's people and Celtics fans for the last 19-years. None of that was more evident than on Super Bowl Sunday when 'The Truth' made his last appearance as a player at the TD Garden.

It wasn't pretty. But as they say 'a win's a win,' right?
The Celtics put together a 10-0 run in the last five minutes of Wednesday night's 116-108 victory over the 76ers and crawled away with their fourth consecutive win.
If were up to Avery Bradley, he would be playing.
But with the All-Star break looming and his team sitting comfortably in second place in the conference, Bradley and the Celtics have decided to hold off a comeback.
Last week the Celtics were reportedly seeking to possibly trade for either the Bulls' Jimmy Butler or the Pacers' Paul George. Nearly seven days later and a lot has occurred that could possibly change the landscape of the Eastern Conferance going forward, especially as the NBA trade deadline approaches on February 23rd.

The Celtics keep losing players to injuries while also finding ways to win without them. Boston, looking to finish their mini road trip on a high-note, entered the American Airlines Center winning nine of their last 10 and losers of their last six in Dallas.
It was Marcus Smart who got hot early in front of friends and family followed by Isaiah Thomas in the fourth quarter as the Celtics held on to beat the Mavericks 111-98.
Call it a roulette wheel or just Deja Vú when it comes to the Boston Celtics' disabled list, but the injury bug has struck again. The latest victim is Jaylen Brown to join the club of missing games for Brad Stevens.

Here. We. Go.
Another trade deadline approaching in the NBA, and more trade rumors have been tossed around for Celtics fans to lick their chops over. It's been over four season since Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were traded away for a plethora of first and second round picks for the next six drafts. Not to mention all the other trades in between (Rondo, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee) that resulted in more picks.
The Celtics, winners of seven straight, rolled into Sacramento on two-days rest and with the Eastern Conference Player of the Week, only to fall to the Kings 108-92 at the Golden 1 Center on Wednesday night.
