The playoffs are almost upon us and the team looks pretty ready. How will this crazy season end for the Celtics?
The leader in the clubhouse for most amazing postseason run by a Celtics team is 1969, by the way. They finished 48-34, a distant fourth in the East, but beat the #2 East seed Philly 4-1. Then faced the Knicks, who had swept the #1 seed Bullets and had gone 4-1 vs Boston in the regular season. They beat them in six. Then they beat the Lakers superteam in the Finals. All those teams they beat had titles within three years of that season.I predicted an ECF loss, but honestly even a hard-fought series loss to Toronto would be hard to get too upset about given how well Toronto has done this year.
And if the Cs were somehow to beat Philly, Toronto, Milwaukee, and whoever comes out of the West that would be possibly the most amazing postseason run by a Celtics team ever factoring in quality of competition.
