Somebody brought this up and I thought it was a good point. Whenever emotions are high a lot can happen. Doc Rivers already made comments saying "its makes you mad" in reference to the bombings. It can be similar to the New Orleans Saints story where hurricane katrina inspired the city and they went on to win the super bowl shortly after. I know there are many differences between the two so dont go pointing them out. Regardless of if the bombings inspire them, this is the last real shot Boston has imo.

I already liked Bostons chances against NY, this could only help their cause. They would get Miami after that, which suits them better considering they will wear down, so imo the earlier they play miami the better. even if they beat NY and gave Miami a run for their money, that would really take some inspiration, and i can see that happening

Almost as bad as the Knicks. Looks like you're making excuses already.

As for the topic: If Boston had HCA I could see it having a bigger impact, but honestly I don't think it will make a difference. They did get an extra day of rest though.

not making excuses at all, in fact i think Chicago will be versing Miami in the ECF, however, the Bulls have been an underdog story all year, so it wont be a shocker if they do lose to Indiana.

I'm not using it as an excuse, I clearly stated that I didn't think it would make a difference.

That is very convenient how you think that they will get to the ECF but you won't be surprised if they get beat by Indy. Kind of taking both sides. Sounds like you are hoping they make it to the ECF but realize that is unlikely.

Fans of teams that have little to no post season success severely overrate regular season results. That's what is happening here. Understandable that you dont understand regular season results are an awful predictor of what happens in the postseason.

Knicks fans should feel better than Boston fans for this series. They have a better roster, with less injuries and HCA. They should win this series. I don't think anyone truly overlooks Boston it is just a matter of hyping up your team and yourself for the best time of the year.

Other than that we will see how it goes. I call 4-2 Knicks only because I think Boston is older and without Rondo they're not that dangerous.

Actually, miami has the largest current win streak in the league right now at 7 and thats with guys sitting for the past 2 weeks LOL! Fair to say the knicks are not the hottest team right now.

To be honest, I'm looking forward to having a real debate about this matchup and this thread isn't the location for it. The bombings were real and people lost their lives. It's tragic and hopefully those that are injured are getting proper treatment.

I do not believe that event had any impact on this series. If the Knicks are better, they will still win and if they're not, the Celtics will still win.

I don't need to hope. They don't have the firepower to win a playoff series unless it is against Hawks or Milwaukee. Too small, too slow, too battered, not enough weapons, no elite superstar to make up for that. Last year Rondo was the guy that carried them in that Heat series. Pierce and have a game here or there and KG will be lights out with his pick and pops in the 2 man game but without Rondo they just don't have the talent to win more than 2 games.

While in no way am i saying boston has this series easily, you are very much under estimating boston. Also, since when its 28-30 past your prime? lol 36-6 to 8 years... Boston is definitly small up front, no dissagreement there. Boston's perimiter defense is pretty good though.

There is no bigger media market than Boston at this point in time because of what just happened. If they make a deep run it will be on every channel and run on ESPN all day every day. Use your logic on this one. I am not saying it will happen but it would be a huge huge story like the Saints and Katrina were.

28-30 IS your prime. They've been past it since then. Once you start the decline thats when the period of 'past their prime' begins. HOF Superstars like KG and Pierce are still elite star players in the initial stages of the decline, but its lower than their peak. Right now I'd say classifies as 'WAY past their prime'. Right now is Melo's prime, it's JR's prime, its Tyson's prime. The casket will be shut on the C's soon enough and the rebuild will commence.

Full health, with Rondo, I do think you guys had as good a shot as any to win the East and I'd favor you over the Knicks, but not with your current situation.

You said the regular season record doesn't matter at all. Of course it does or else there would be some semblance of parity amongst the seeds once the playoffs start. There isn't.

Did it matter that the bulls were 3-0 vs miami in 2010?

I was clearly talking about the head to head season match-up. There's been a good amount of instances over the past couple of seasons where the team that lost the regular season series went on to win the playoff series. Hell, the Celtics were destroyed by the 76ers in the regular season last year and ended up beating them in the playoffs.

And again, I never said the Celtics would win it all....

That argument would hold water if the teams had similar records over the course of the year with the knicks winning 3/4 head to head, but the knicks even though they were pretty much the most injured team in the league won well over 50 games. Boston was pedestrian.

Hate to be that guy, but in the infamous "Boston Massacre" there was only one casualty, Crispus Attucks.


what yesterday or in the 1700s? because two people died yesterday. as a result of the "infamous Boston Massacre" five people died. three of them of injury's the next day. They are always forgotten in the history books

Your reading comprehension needs work. Let me try to make it clear for you, Boston-NY is going 7 games.

Let me know if you still are unable to understand.

Bucks - Heat is going to 6 games.

It could, but I doubt it.

Your a ****ing idiot

Because I question the word choice under the circumstances? I think that actually makes me observant. If a sports site like ESPN came out with that head like they would be highly criticized for their word selection given the circumstances, and three other posters in this thread have question the word selection. I'm not making a joke about it, simply pointing out that the word selection is questionable. It's not like I put "lol" or some smiley face after it.

Idiot? If you are going use personal attacks at least have something to back it up with. You approach resembles that of a child in grammar school.

Theres a difference between 60 win 1-2 seeds battling and the 1 seed scratching out a few wins by the skin of their teeth and the 2 seed turning the tables in the playoffs, than an injury-ravaged barely .500 7 seed and a 54 win 2 seed making that flip flop from regular season to playoffs.

Instead of trying to apply your Heat-Bulls reference in every ****ing thread, how about finding a 41-42 win team getting whomped in the regular season by a top team in the conference and turn it on to upset a 2 seed in the playoffs (returning superstars and things of that nature aside).

i also remember those teams also being healthy, and comparably talented, which the celtics clearly aren't.

Thats the complete opposite. GSW had their number all season and were either 3-0 or 3-1, many people pegged that as a potential big time upset before it happened. That example directly contradicts your case.
