After a slow start out of the gate, the Boston Celtics have begun separating themselves from the playoff pack in the Eastern Conference. Boston has the second-best record in the NBA over the last two months at 24-7, pulling them safely into the second seed in the East at 37-19, just 2.5 games behind the Cleveland Cavaliers. The impressive stretch has kept the locker room upbeat, but All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas knows there is still work to do. "We're feeling good about ourselves, but we're nowhere near where we want to be. We're moving in the right direction," he said. Boston's stellar play has not covered up the fact that this team still has major holes. With ample young players and future draft picks at the disposal of general manager Danny Ainge, opposing teams will surely give the Celtics a call and try to get them to part with some valuable pieces of their future before the Feb. 23 trade deadline.
