    Default Playoffs Round 1: Celtics vs Pacers Series Thread

    Celtics (4) vs Pacers (5) Series Discussion Thread

    Schedule:

    Game 1: Sun, April 14 1 PM ET @ BOS [TNT]
    Game 2: Wed, April 17 7 PM ET @ BOS [TNT]
    Game 3: Fri, April 19 8:30 PM ET @ IND [ABC]
    Game 4: Sun, April 21 1 PM ET @ IND [ABC]
    Game 5*: Wed, April 24 @ BOS
    Game 6*: Fri, April 26 @ IND
    Game 7*: Sun, April 28 @ BOS

    Will probably turn out to be the only interesting East first round matchup (Hope I'm wrong about that though, we'll see). Obviously I'm rooting for my Celtics but it will be tougher than expected especially without Smart. However we should still be able to take care of business in 6 games max.

    Hoping my Pacers make it entertaining. With Howard playing well I don't think it will go more than 5 games.

    He clearly meant Hayward.

    Stevens isn't saying who will start at SG. Almost undoubtedly it will be Brown or Hayward. I'm guessing it will be Brown because he's been the starter at SG this season and was for all of last season, plus the bench could use Hayward more because Hayward is better at creating for others.

    Celtics in 4 or 5 led by Batman Kyrie, and two Robins in Hayward, Tatum.

    What happened to the Celtics?! They just suck ass this year. The Pacers always being toughness but you have to like Boston in this one even tho I'm rooting for the underdog in every series this postseason.

    They're not the Patriots. 45-10. Those cute little games don't work without Belichick and Brady. That's a bad sign for a team not to know who their SG is for the playoffs! It should be obvious to everyone.

    After the Celtics whiffed the Finals last year without their two-best players, you'd expect a 1-8 or 2-7 match-up with the Pacers who lost their own star mid-season, yet one game ultimately made the difference between HCA for these teams. There should be no more major surprises to the Celtics' dismay, though, who are simply built to peak in the playoffs.

    A coach's impact is magnified during a seven-game series, which could very well favor the Celtics against any other team in the league. Nate McMillan has done an inspiring job in his own right with his perseverant team, but the "hard work will get you anywhere" pep talks become platitudinous come playoffs time; by then, it boils down more to a team's star-power and the Xs and Os battle

    Celtics in 5. They'll burn tho... so it will be yet another wasted year which is fine by me.

    They didn't really live up to expectations but 49 wins isn't sucking ass.
