I always said when I left the Celtics, I could not go to heaven, because that would
 be a step down. I am pure 100 percent Celtic. I think if you slashed my wrists, my
 blood would’ve been green.  -  Bill "Greatest of All Time" Russell

Go C's ! I wish we make a statement in this first game.

I really hope the Bulls are not too big of a problem, especially on rebounds.

Still, I'm glad we avoided 2nd seed and the Pacers considering yesterday's game against the cavs.

Hoping for a good effort from the team.

I'm shocked that literally every "talking head" is picking the Bulls. Sighting that IT will be stifled, by taking the ball out of his hands, and putting it in Horford's, and Bradley's...who they're not impressed with. And the lack of rebounding and an interior presents.

I hope the Celtics are listening to these "experts"

Wow, that is bizarre.

It's not as though the Bulls are flush with good scorers and big men.

Mirotic and Lopez are a poor defensive front court, we should take the ball to the rim early and often.

If Crowder/Smart/Brown can slow down Butler then we should win this series without too much trouble.

Not sure who exactly you mean by talking heads (TNT crew specifically?), and while I've seen many cite the series as a potential upset, I'm yet to see anyone actually pick the Bulls to win. On ESPN, for example, all 20-something analysts on their panel picked the C's.

I don't blame anybody these Celts will be viewed that way until they do something about it. Outside of IT we are crappy offensively and never came out the first round.

Man I'm soo nervous for this game (like every playoff game for any sport LOL).

I miss the days of 2008-2012 when it seemed the C's were "guaranteed" wins. Now it's 50/50  :laugh:

This series feels pretty guaranteed to me.  I'll be surprised if it goes more than 5.

I really think IT is the type that will be able to channel the emotions in a competitively positive way.

GO CELTS!
