It doesn't tell me they are better than a healthy Celtics team, but it tells me good things about the team.
He made a comment about the Nets beating the Celtics, nothing about last night made me confident the Nets have passed the Celtics. The Celtics were in early season cruise mode and didn't have Rondo. You'll see much more if you play them later. Anyone who thinks that was the Celtics has another thing coming.
I buy you saying this says something about the Nets, i don't but it saying anything about Boston.
