    Once again this is not true,  this isn't what I said.  I said that injuries happen to players and teams and could happen again this year,  that we never know whats going to happen.  I flat out did not say that we can win if other teams suffer injuries. I was making a statement that those things happen, period.  I definitely never added the workd "if"other teams lose players.

     

     

    So if other playoff teams are 100% the Celts will still beat them?

    Let's put it on record, how long will the Celts last in the playoffs in your opinion?  



    Its bad to be put on record,  as you should well know from last year when you didn't even have us making the playoffs.    You say something completely untrue then start looking for some type of out by  spinning what was said in the first place.    First off I don't know who we are playing and who is in good condition physically.  On top of that I don't usually make predictions other than I back my team.  Why do you have such a problem with that.

    You are dead wrong here. Simpley not true.   If the Celtics split the first two games at Miami,  win their two games at home,  that puts them up 3 games to one.  Miami wins its home game,  Boston puts them out with game 6 with their 4th  win in Boston. 

     

    Same scenario as last year as Boston had a chance to win game 4 at home and Lebron had maybe his greatest playoff game to keep the Heat alive.

     



    Boston won Game 4 at home last season.

     

    You seriously think the Celts will be able to go 3-1 against the Heat in the first 4 games of a playoff series?



    OK just to be accurate on what said here,  the Celtics had a chance to close out the Heat in Boston last year.  Is this correct or not?   That means that they don't have to win in the way you described.  There is not need to start spinning again,  things could shape up exactly as they did last year.  I am not saying they will but what you said is not accurate.  Now answer the question,  is what you said true or false.  No need to add anything else to the reply,  except were your right or wrong in what you said?

    I'm merely asking.

    Last season I was wrong about the Celts. No big deal.

    I'm not like the wingnut Mployee who would never admit to being wrong.

     

    You said injuries could happen like last year. Obviously if Rose didn't get hurt last season then the Celts might not have made it to the east finals. So if something like that happened again this year then clearly the Celts have a bigger chance of winning, right?



    I believe that was pretty much what I said that injuries can happen.  Doesn't mean they have to for us to win. The whole world knows the Heat are the favorites,  no great knowledge there.  That doesn't mean on a Celtic website that we can't expect our team to do well.  More than like if Rose had been playing we would have lost,  but who really knows for sure?  I know I don't.

    we are also 1 game out of last place. we only need to be thinking about Philadelphia tonight. and then our next game. let the chips fall where they may come playoff time. if Doc can get this new group playing as a cohesive unit by playoff time i like our chances. Miami in the 1st round? bring 'em on!

    Remember, last season I thought the Celts wouldn't make the playoffs. Obviously I never expected the Celts to advance to the Finals.

    Celts had a chance to close out the Lakers in 2010 and eliminate the Heat in 2012. But both times the Celts failed.

    The only time the Celts were truly a great team was when Pierce was still 30 years old and KG didn't have a season ending knee injury.

    Again, only 3 NBA Greats led their teams to a championship at the age of 35 or older. And those 3 are not named KG or Pierce. 



    Fine and dandy,  but you never answered the question.  None of what you mention have anything to do with what we were talking about,  nothing at all.  Simply a question of can the Celtics win a series at home in the playoffs?  You said basically it would have to be on the road in Miami,  I pointed out that we could have won in Boston last year in game six, so that means we don't have to close out anyone on the road.  Right or wrong?

    Again, last season I didn't believe the Celts could beat Miami in a 7-game series.



    Again its obvious you are not going to answer the question.  What does that series have to do with answering a simple question about something you said be right or wrong?  Besides you didn't even have us in the playoffs, let alone playing Miami.
