Almost anyone is saying that the Celtics might have to get through the Pistons to advance to the Eastern Conference finals. That may be true but their games against Orlando and Cleveland – the two teams that have beaten them – may be turn out to be playoff previews and one game indicates nothing especially in the regular season.
But Orlando and Cleveland each looked solid against the Celtics at times. The Cavs won that one in overtime on Tuesday on their homecourt. They managed to get a little of luck when Ray Allen one of the NBA’s best foul shooters missed two that would have put Boston ahead 94-92 with less than 25 seconds left in regulation.
Either way it was a helluva game for this early, much better than most I’ve seen in person this season.
I could go on and on but chances are you watched it
