Last night I was at the Garden with my best e-bro to watch the shorthanded Celtics take down the Toronto Raptors 97-93.
With only two games left in the regular season, the C's are locked into the #2 seed for the second year in a row. Boston plays for championship banners, but it is worth noting last night's win also clinched the Celtics their second-straight Atlantic Division title.
It wasn't the prettiest game, but when you're down 3 starters, all that matters is picking up the W. Malcolm Brogdon showed out. Jayson knows!!!
Malcolm's been a PERFECT fit in Boston. I'm glad he feels the same way.
Of course, you'd rather have home-court adv throughout the playoffs, but this team has shown countless times that they can win on the road. They clinched the East in Miami last year and beat the Bucks in Milwaukee twice in the 2nd round.
This Celtics roster is good enough to win a championship. Yeah, sometimes I worry about Coach Joe and his inexperience. Jayson is prone to mix in a 3/21 night. We could be better on the glass, but this team is on a mission. I don't see anybody other than the Bucks taking them down in the East. Should we get past Milwaukee, we'll have home-court in the Finals. Who knows, the Cavs or Knicks can do us a solid and knock them out in the 2nd round.
I don't know what's gonna happen; all I know is I can't wait for the playoffs to start. The 2nd seed worked out pretty well for us last season. Hopefully, this summer, the C's will finish the job. It's green bleeding season!!
