51 wins, second-round exit. Great defense, but not enough offense generated to beat elite teams in the postseason.

And you need good offense to win championships.

I wish I could disagree on the "2nd round exit" part, but yeah I don't see us beating TOR or CLE in 2nd round even if we are 2 seed with home court.

Now if we are 1 seed OR through some seeding "magic" can avoid any of TOR/CLE until ECF, we have a chance, but it's slim it turns out that way.

Mid 50's. Could see us making the ECF again, as I'm expecting (or hoping lol) that we find our legs again

I really wish we had beat the cavs. This board is going to be tough over the all-star break

Losing 8 of their last 14 games is recipe for panic mode. Not to mention about 4 of those wins came down to the wire. Their only convincing win came against an 11th-seeded team in the East.

You DO NOT lose to the Cavaliers at the TD Garden in front of some of the Celtics greats watching the game, especially when they gave you a handicap by overhauling more than half their roster over the weekend, and had zero practice time together and first time playing with each other on the floor.

Harsh is the word.

Sticking with it


55-60 wins still.

The East is terrible. The Celtics still have about the same talent as they did last year.

61-63 wins with an ECF berth at least as the 1 seed, we've been gassed and when we get a breather with the ASB watch out.

55-56 wins is my guess.

This team isn’t as bad as a lot seem to believe. We’ve been outworked the past few weeks and that’s not normal (IMO). We’ll get back on track in time for playoffs. That said, I think we’ll be the underdogs vs Cavs and Raps, even if we land the #1 seed.

56-57 wins,

We have a relatively easy 5-game stretch after the ASB that we should take advantage of. If we do so, we will have a fighting chance for #1 seed against Toronto/Cleveland. If we don't, we might call it a season and end up with around 50-51 wins and #3 seed, which almost definitely means a 2nd round exit.

54 or 55. Have to think they find their stride again down the stretch. Second in the East come playoff time.

what is the overreaction exactly?  The Celtics have been a mid-tier level playoff team for a couple of months now.  They are 18-14 since starting the year 22-4.  The recent stuff is a much larger sample and probably more indicative of the actual ability of the team.  The Cleveland hype is a bit much, but the Cavs clearly got better with the trade and they've always had the best player in the world.  Winning a series against the Cavs was always an uphill battle because James is still that good.
