Just caught the end of the game, as Iím vacationing. But what a win! And itís perfect timing, too, because given our threat to take over the 1 seed now, Toronto will have to play hard to win in Cleveland on Tuesday, which would push them back to the 4 seed. And if they donít win, then a win in Toronto on Wednesday would virtually guarantee a great shot at the 1 seed for us. Itís a win-win scenario!

Hm but wouldn't we want to evade the Cavs as long as possible? If Cavs win...they close in closer to 3rd seed, but Celtics inching closer to 1 seed. Meaning, the 76ers may not be able to chase them for the #3 seed anymore. If Raptors win, they pretty much lock up home-court advantage throughout Eastern Conference playoffs.

i disagree. i am so tired of cbers saying "lets hide from cleveland." why? no one expects the celtics to win the championship this year, so why not go up against the good teams in the playoffs and give the team experience?

besides, this team may actually beat cleveland. let's find out what the kids can do.

Celtics running the 2-3 zone killing the Raptors

Brad did this last game...Brilliant moves. Said he hadn't used it in awhile.
Larry Bird was Greater than you think.

Maybe the zone will get us out of the first round , playing the teams without Lebron, Harden , Curry , KD etc.    Then Irving and Smart can come back .

Zone might make up for the loss of Irving in the early round.   Few teams have consistent outside shooting like Harden or Curry , nor do they have Lebron to break a zone down.

its our best chance to win the first round.

I think it's so funny that Celtics FANS still don't believe in this team. You'd think we would be overly optimistic about our chances, but there are still so many posters here who are talking about losing in the 1st round and that we might as well shut it down. Do you guys just not watch any of the games or are you really that clueless? We have now won 6 straight without Kyrie, Smart, Hayward, and Theis. In that time, we have beaten OKC, Portland, Utah, and Toronto. All of those teams' stars have been healthy and playing. Horford, Brown, Morris, and Larkin have also all missed games during this stretch. If you're not with us now then you never will be. Go Celtics.

CBS has

no Irving , Smart or Hayward .......lets see what Raptors look like minus THREE of their better starters ?  what would Casey produce ?

they would be 15 win team ....minus Lowry , Dmar , Ibaka ...

CBS .....destroys Casey .....its not even close .   Casey is a awful offensive coach ......still with limited set plays on offense to go to to match defense changes .  I think High School coaches could have called a better game than Casey on offense .   This shows a definite LACK of basics ,  and preparation, as he had two days to solve the Celtics zone ...he should have known was coming.
