In response to concord27's comment:
There are no guarantees in anything, but to suggest the Celtics do not have fighting chance against the Heat based on the past is wrong. To suggest that we cannot beat the Knicks is really wrong. We absolutely could. If we do not sustain anymore injuries and the other teams do, we will be even stronger.
Remember if the Celtics build momentum Pierce and Garnett will give everything they have in the playoffs. Green if he can play well in three out of every four versus showing up only half the time. This team becomes a terror during the playoffs. Green is so talented, he may be a top ten talent, of course he is not that as a performer, but he shows up more frequently than ever now. If Pierce can learn to let Green take over at the right times in the playoffs with our defense I want to say it again we will be very strong. We have tools we did not have last year, a healthy Bradley, Lee and some scorers on the bench. Lastly I believe Terry has a playoff gear that he will find and this with our veteran experience will make us the toughest 5,6,7,or 8th seed in NBA history.
The schedule is tougher, I think we are going to play well from this point on. I could change my mind by next week but I saw something last night. The Celtics are built for the playoffs no matter what the seed.
All I'm saying is the Celts will not be able to beat the Heat or Knicks if the Celts face them in the 1st round.
If the Celts get a better seeding than 7th or 8th, that means the Celts drastically got better since January. Meaning the Celts improved. But if the Celts continue to be the 7th or 8th seed then that means the Celts have not improved.
It was very clear that the Celtics team in January would clearly exit in the 1st round. This current Celts team has been playing better of late.
The key is getting past the 1st round. If the Celts can do that then anything's possible.
