Everyone short of Norm has a slotted role that they excel at. I can't discount the chemistry of this team as well... These dudes clearly love playing with and for each other.
Everything about this team is different this year around.
That being said, I sadly, wouldn't be the least bit shocked if we fall to the Cavs or Celtics in the playoffs.
For a number of reasons...
We will see man. I've been hearing about the changes you've all made here and in the media, but watching the games it seems like everyone is playing around Derozan now, who is killin it in that old-school big guard way.
When it comes down to it I feel like your main guys never adjusted to playoff ball, but things should different this time. Not a very Celtic fan like thing for me to say, but I don't you guys would have a problem with anyone in the east besides the Cavs.
