Those teams went to 4 straight NBA Finals plus an ECF in the final year of that 5 year stretch. 

This team has been to the Finals only twice and bounced in the conference semis the other two times.

Not quite on par with the mid-late 80s teams.

Nope, though injuries certainly played a part in that. But its not like the 80s celtics didn't have their share too.
