Are the Big 3 Actually Playing Better Together than Two Years Ago?

Rondo had 16 points and 11 assists, Kevin Garnett scored 22 points, Ray Allen had 16 and the Boston Celtics handed the Philadelphia 76ers their fifth straight loss, 96-86 on Friday night.

Now this is strictly from an offensive point of view (I'm still not satisfied with our defense), but does anyone else think that Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce finally have the "playing together thing" figured out? Two years ago it took forever to get Ray Allen involved in the offense, and, once they did include him, they'd immediately proceed to forget about him again.

This year Jesus asserts himself frequently, and steps aside when KG or the Truth have it going. That's an interesting thought, if true. The offense should start with Ray, and work in the other two depending on how they are playing.
