(NECN) - He's the hot hand for the Boston Celtics in their current eight-game winning streak. Eddie House sat down with NECN's Mike Giardi at practice on Monday to discuss the mentality of the shooter. House says it's "80 percent confidence and 20 percent mechanics, because you can go out there with bad mechanics and have all the confidence in the world and knock down shots." In the one-on-one interview, House told Giardi that the second unit has been able to step up its game on defense during the current streak, while turning to different hot hands on offense each night. he also prasied the play of Gabe Pruitt, "He's playing good basketball, and playing with a lot of confidence," House said. And he said while he's "love to go" and take part in the three-point shooting contest in Phoenix over the All-Star Break, especially since his family is in nearby Scottsdale. And he said Rajon Rondo would be a worthy All-Star pick alongside Kevin Garnett and likely selections Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.
