If we continue playing like we are now, do you think we have shot at the title?

No.  I still don't think we can get past Miami in a seven-game series. 

I would consider amending that statement if Danny can pick us up a good big man to help us in the paint.

They have a shot, even without Rondo.

It's a very small shot..that got even smaller without Rondo, but it's STILL a shot.

if you can get dalambert or gortat for bass and a pick, maybe, but pretty doubtful with no rondo and sully.

Brandon Bass doesnt exactly look like a very tasty meatball at the moment unfortunately.

Probably aren't a serious contender right now.  Hopefully all of the other top teams in the east think that way.

But man it sure is fun cheering for this team now that they have dialed up the effort.  Games like today are why it is so fun to be a celtic fan.

No, not enough talent but they won't go out without a fight.

With the way we played vs the Heat and Nugs we totally can.

Winning in losing efforts is always huge.

what about big man depth and quality?

KG, Bass, Steamer, and hollins

versus

KG, Bass, wilcox and collins

if we had sully then yes but it looks the same to me. now yes we have better depth at the 1, 2 and 3 spots sure. KG will never last without another good bog to help him. stevie wonder can see it

They had depth before Rondo and Sully went down.  Now, not so much.  They're playing everybody they've got right now.

It's not impossible, but to win we'd need to keep playing this way and have several things break our way in the playoffs. 

But hey, not a bad conversation to be having 2 weeks after Rondo goes down.

Meh, we're one major Heat injury from having a decent shot. Even without one, we still have a puncher's chance, since JG is about as close to an LBJ-stopper as you could ask for in this league. Also their team sucks as bad as we do at rebounding, so there's that.
