This post is bad juju. We haven't even won a road game yet and Philly was a quarter away from going down 2-1 last night. Let's get through the rounds and not anger the basketball gods
Anyway, where I'm at with this Celts team is I think they have the ballsy-shotmakers and defense to be competitive against anybody outside of Golden State or Houston, but the state of the roster due to injuries is such that they could get cold and lose two or three games in a row to any opponent.
I think the odds are against the Celts making it past the second round if they get there, whoever the opponent is, but I wouldn't rule it out.
This is where I'm at. Betting on the C's to beat Philly means betting on a team to make the conference finals without their 2 best players, which is a tough sell. I wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics beat Philly or if they lose the rest of their games to Milwaukee. Too much with this team has yet to be proven.
That said, I voted mostly confident.
