The Boston Celtics might finally be getting it together.

After their abysmal start to the season, the Celtics have won four of their past five. In those games — since their loss to, ahem, the Knicks (who they face Thursday night on TNT as 12.5-point favorites) — Boston has the best net rating in the league with the seventh-best defense and the fifth-best offense in that span.

The combined records of the five teams the Celtics played during that span? 48-75. So, yeah, they’ve gotten right vs. the bad teams.

But there are real signs of growth.
