That’s all I had to say last night when I switched my brain from the NHL to the NBA and saw the final score of the Boston Celtics – Toronto Raptors game.  How did a team that was a nine-game losing streak and was without its primary ballhandler and third-leading scorer secure a win over the team that was sitting in first place in the Atlantic Division?   Boggles the mind.

But that’s why we love the NBA, right?
