Kendrick Perkins with the Thunder.CELTICS HAVEN'T BEEN THE SAME WITHOUT KENDRICK PERKINS

Kendrick Perkins is doing just fine, thank you, as is his team, the Oklahoma City Thunder... His former team? Not doing so well, so we'll cut to the chase. After getting rolled by the Pacers on Saturday night, the second loss to Indy in eight days, the Celtics are 4-7 and have matched the longest losing streak in the new Big Three era by dropping four in a row. (They also lost four straight in 2008-09.) And with the athletic, dynamic Thunder on tap for Monday night, no one will be shocked if the streak reaches five. Pretty much nothing has gone right for the Celtics since Danny Ainge pulled the trigger and made the controversial Perkins trade last February.
