    Celtics in 7, both teams will win all their home games.

    The good thing for both teams is that the travel time is practically zero.

    If the Sixers win they will get no credit for beating an injured team.

    If the Sixers lose they will be ridiculed for losing to an injured team.

    The Celtics were good because of their defense. That's it. That's the only reason they were good. No other reason. The defense is still in tact.

    Are they disadvantaged without their best iso scorer? Of course. But their defense got them here, not him.

    That is all true, but that is just how life works when you are the favorite. It's like playing a game of hoops against a girl. If you win, you beat a girl. If you lose, you lost to a girl. There's no W either way.

    With Jaylen out with the Hamstring injury, offense is going to be tough to come by.

    I think Embiid will be the difference maker in this series. He plays well, the Sixers win. If the C's can contain him, we have a chance at winning.

    Unfortunately I think the Sixers take it in 6. They can probably steal one in Boston.

    I don't like to predict Celtic losses so I'm not going to predict anything. Losing Jaylen Brown just makes it ridiculous. It's just not the Celtics' year. They need 30 from Tatum, another 30 from Rozier and 20/10 from Horford.

    Very sick of the way the troll wars have centered around Irving this year. I truly hope he never reads this board, he became the centerpiece of an argument over fans and haters of another player. Ironically the desire to not have his career caught up in the whirlwind of a certain players legacy may be the reason he wanted out of Cleveland to begin with. Some of you are nauseating.

    Yeah, he says that, and I'm sure that's part of it. But Kyrie wanted to be the clear cut #1 option and he's always wanted that. That's the biggest reason. Why he couldn't just come out and say it is lol...

    He has never clearly stated the reason. It doesn't much matter as far as I'm concerned so long as the Celtics know what it is so that they can keep him happy to be here.

    He never stated it because there wasn't one thing.

    First and foremost, he wanted to be the man... the rest... he wanted to play for a competent coach, he was tired of the LeDramaShitShow, and he wanted to play for a team that hadn't at all discussed trading him. It was multifaceted. I'm sure he's a lifer in Boston, well... until Ainge trades him anyways.

    Brad stevens will manage 2 wins but the Sixers have the better talent.

    Sixers in 6

    Its gonna be really tough without Brown.

    The Celtics, unlike the Heat, have guys to body Embiid and make him work (Baynes, Monroe, Horford, Yabusele).

    They also guard the perimeter very well (Smart, Rozier, Ojeleye, and hopefully Brown is back by game 2).

    Cant predict a C's win with all the injuries but it will be competitive.

    Ultimately, it doesn't matter because the Celts ceased being serious contenders when Hayward got hurt; no one from the east is winning the title this year.

    The Celtics' run starts next year. Philly can have the hype. C's should get the banner(s).
