Iím feeling a bit nostalgic after seeing the new schedule come out and watching some Celtics  highlights from the past year, so it made me think - what was my favorite moment of the 2017-2018 season, including the playoffs?

To me, two moments/plays stick out: (1) Smart drawing two charges on Harden in the final seconds to win us the game, and (2) Tatum dunking on Lebron in Game 7.

I think I lean toward Smartís play(s), as we actually won that game, and that has to be the loudest that Iíve ever heard the Garden. But both were definitely some of the most memorable of the season, and my personal favorites.

  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
Probably being in the building and watching Marcus Morris beat OKC with a dagger 3, though my opinion of Mook lowered in the coming weeks...
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Favorite game had to be against Golden State (that huge comeback at the Garden where Brown scored 22). I think it set the tone for the season, and it was Jaylen's coming out party imo.

The Harden charge was epic. I also loved Jaylen dunking over Porzingis.

Brown's three against Utah. I spent a lot of time reading rants about Hayward and the Celtics in Jazz blog, and for me that was redemption.

Horford's  buzzer beater vs the Blazers and the team's reaction was a highlight for me.

Selfishly, this shot by Kyrie against Charlotte in the Garden was my favorite moment because I was there for it.

The end of Game 5 against Philly. Closing them out in 5 was incredibly satisfying.

For the regular season, though, it's Smart's charges against Harden. No question.

The confetti game will be a lasting memory for me. I donít think that gets talked about enough.

Rozier game winning steal and dunk vs. Indy.

Brown posterizing Porzingiz.

Pierce retirement ceremony.

Smart drawing fouls to win game vs. Houston.

Too many to list, honestly. What a season.
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

  • Be the posts you wish to see in the world.
So many - I think my honest favorite was Jaylen's game-winner at Utah when we had a severely depleted roster and no real business winning. The play was just gorgeous and run to perfection.

Also loved of course

- Smart's two charges on Harden, plus the Horford bucket in between, to cap our comeback,
- Tatum's G7 Dunk
- The finishes to our 3 last wins against Philly - all of them involved us massively outexecuting them in the clutch
- Horford's game-winner vs Portland
- Kyrie's absurd spinning through double-team shot in Milwaukee
- Rozier's steal and dunk at Indy
- The Golden State comeback and win to extend our streak

And probably about 100 more I'm forgetting. What a season!
