In response to Ortiz123's comment:
I know I'm sticking my neck out early, (oh well, not the first time. lol).
I think we match up better with them or the Pacers. We might catch them off guard.
I know they just finished a 27 game winning streak and are the defending chumps, but,
Wade may not be 100%/ we tend to get in his head. With the bucks, they may have an easy first round and give Wade some rest. Not so with the Celts.
Green/ Pierce/ do a good job on Lebrons
They play small ball/so do we/they are vulnerable in the middle/ so are we.
If we are going to beat them, lets do it early. It's our only chance.
If you are going to face the bully, punch first and fast. Make them blink, and hang on.
Pierce and Kg will give it their last Hurah...it may be enough in the first round.
I don't see the Celts beating them in a 7 game series in East finals.
I think Doc and Danny may be preparing for this. Because of ...
Riley’s response: “Danny Ainge needs to shut the (expletive) up and manage his own team.”
This saga started Wednesday after Miami’s 27-game winning streak ended in Chicago. James told reporters that night that he does not believe some of the hard fouls he takes are “basketball plays.” A day later, Ainge told Boston radio station WEEI that “it’s almost embarrassing that LeBron would complain about officiating.”
Riley was clearly irked, calling Ainge “the biggest whiner going when he was a player.”

Most of the talking heads that predict the Celtic's playoff future, only look at their record, stats, and they have little understanding of what the Celtics are capable of doing.
While intact, the team that played after Rondo went down will be formidable. Last year, we had no Jeff Green, and we had no bench. This year, while intact, The Cs beat most of the best teams in the NBA. Furthermore, the Celtics played without Bradley last year, and he will be back to his pesky self once KG comes back.
Who ever we play, I like our chances. Let the NBA stars ring up the stats, and the accolades while the Celtics focus on winning.
I agree, this team has enough to be dangerous for anybody in a 7 game series..
My concern is going throught 3-7 games series..that would be our downfall...
and the Celts do not get intimidated by Miami..on the contrary, they get up for them...
KG and PP have too much pride to go down without givng their best...that's good enought for me..but they will need a lot of help from Green, Bradley,Terry, and Lee...
I was pulling for Danny to trade KG and PP at midpoint for some youth(CLippers), but since it did not happen..I'm all in...
