Are we sure that's the starting 5?  I don't like the Horford LeBron match up at all.

It is not at all sure that this is the starting lineup. It made sense to start Baynes against Philly and Milwaukee, it might not make sense against the Cavs. I love Baynes' defense, but if the Cavs go with Lebron, Hill, Korver, Smith, and Love the Celts might be better off going with Rozier, Brown, Tatum, Morris, and Horford. That might be as good a line up as the Celts can put out there against Lebron.

No one can really stop him, but that lineup doesn't offer the obvious mismatches that last year's team did with Isaiah and Olynyk. It also puts lots of pressure on the Cavs defense. Everyone in that lineup can shoot the 3, and there is no one to hide Korver or Love on so the Celts will have mismatches to attack. If the Cavs go with Tristan, then you might put Baynes in the starting lineup to match up with him.

Too many variables with the Cavs to predict the series, but I'll stick with my gut feeling : Celtics in 6. Our biggest enemy, besides LeBron, is in the Celtics' minds. Fear the Cavs or think back about the previous series when they make a big run and we're done. Don't fear them, play our game relentlessly, like we did in the first two series, and we've got this - barring LeBron miracles.

Go Celtics, can't wait for the early tipoff!

We'll have 3 guys score 20+ with Tatum, Jaylen, and Horford.  Terry will have 18, 14 in the 2nd half.  Lebron will get 34, 9, and 8 but nobody else will help him enough.  Celtics win 104-97.
