More importantly, how many games can we take from GS?
In a playoff series? 4.

I believe they could but I'd rather Coach Stevens gives liberal rest to Kyrie, Big Al and especially Hayward.

Go for 55+ wins but keep them fresh for our playoff run....all the way into June.

Seriously - would someone voting no explain your reasons??? How do you get there?

Itís difficult to win 60 games in a season.  Only 1-2 teams a year typically do it.  So while 60 feels within reach, it also seems like something that the team could easily fall short of.
Iím considering our depth a big plus - both because it will often let us put pressure on teams for 48 minutes and should allow us to keep the stars fresh. I put 60 if healthy because I think that is the most likely outcome.

We are going to win more than 55 resting!  Did no one see the playoffs without those guys and we did well.

Easily a 60+ win team.  Especially with healthy Kyrie and Hayward.  I also believe Tatum will make a big leap in year 2.  Brown should progress as well.  Celtics new 'lineup of death' will be extremely difficult to guard -- Irving, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, Horford.  All 5 can shoot the 3 and space the floor. 

Kyrie is also the best finisher in the game of basketball today.  I believe our offense will take a leap in efficiency.  Expect the C's to score between 105-110 ppg and continue being the #1 defense in the NBA at worst ranking as a top 3 defensive unit.  The stars seem to have lined up, Lebron is out of the East, it is the Celtics time to rise to the top!!  Finals or bust! :)
