The Boston Celtics are 4-2 in the bubble, picking up a nice win over the 2nd seed, Toronto Raptors, last night. As the playoffs approach, the Celtics are sitting pretty. The team is currently the 3rd seed, and to me, their path in the playoffs looks like a deep one.
Jayson Tatum … too clean 🧼

Right now, the Philadelphia 76ers are the 6th seed. Before the resume of play began, I was not too fond of that matchup for the Celtics. However, with Ben Simmons being out indefinitely with a knee injury, the Celtics chances are even higher. I didn’t think the team would ultimately lose to the 76ers, but it’s a series that could have drained the C’s.
With the Celtics being the three seed, their path in the playoffs will be sufficient than most teams. I want to avoid Milwaukee until the Conference finals, and I want the Celtics to have good momentum going into that series. So, hold on, we’re just two games away from Celtic playoff basketball.
