The Celtics aren't playing cohesive enough right now to beat a team like the Spurs in a series, I agree. But...

Such a great moment. I mark for that everytime I see it. If the Spurs were on the court in that game though I don't think it would've been close enough for that shot to matter.

And remember the guy who hit that shot also missed to game-ending freethrows to beat the Cavs too. I repeat 2 free throws. I think they CAN be clutch, I just think that what happens now is they get a lead and can't put anyone away really. They need to play together better and need a killer instinct. I'm really not trying to come off as a guy who doesn't believe in the Celtics, but there's alot of improvement needed.

The Spurs. The Celtics have no depth and Ray Allen doesn't really seem to be shooting that well.

1. "No depth" is a myth.
2. Ray Allen in a shooting slump? That will last all the way until the finals?

That is absolutely true. My teeth cringed horribly when he missed those freethrows. However, still got a full season ahead, and I think they can only improve (barring injury).

Yeah man that's why in my initial post I put "right now" because I don't know for sure how much better they'll get playing together. The Spurs are damn hard to beat in a 7 game series. And they seem to play eerily similar to the Celtics now.

Whomever said the Celtics have no depth really need to watch the games more closely. House, "Big Baby" Davis, and James Posey really pick up the slack when the "big 3" are in a rut. Those three will REALLY show their value when playoff time comes because I'd put the Celtics bench up against any teams really.

Celtics in 6 games.

The Celtics and their patchwork offense will be a problem for the Spurs.

You can put up any fanboy Youtube video all you want. Alls I know is he, nor Allen nor KG was clutch against Cleveland or Orlando this year. And while I think they are better than both of those teams. They still have to get some more experience together before saying something retarded like they'd beat the Spurs. And sorry I am from Boston. Roxbury to be exact. You lose.

What the hell are u talking about?

A) I never said we would win the series. I said we wouldn't get sweped.

B) We have 3 allstars that have been clutch in the past as well as this year.
How can you be clutch every game?

You lose for not reading

Spurs in 6.

People don't seem to understand how vicious the Spurs are in the playoffs...Especially the finals and are underestimating them against a team full of players who don't know squat about being a champion.

Spurs in 6 or 7. Garnett will play out of his mind with his first whiff of a title, but it wont be enough as Tony Parker and Ginobli abuse their defenders and own the paint, while Duncan nullifies Garnetts play with his own.

Why do people keep saying Parker and Ginobilli will kill their defenders as though the Celtics don't have deadly perimeter guys of their own?

well i still like my joke response but as more people give serious answers, i will too. i see the bowen / manu v. pierce / allen matchups as being the deciding factor here. tony's going to get some points, but he doesn't really worry me that much. rondo plays good d, and we cover up well with perkins and kg. but what happens if bowen totally locks up either ray or paul AND manu goes ballistic? assuming kg and timmy are basically going to be a wash in the end, that to me is going to be a problem.

to put it another way - when anyone not named duncan covers garnett, we get the double team and somebody is open, so relying on offensive contributions from 1 dimensional scorers like house and posey is a pretty safe bet. AND most of the time paul pierce can be expected to eviscerate anyone attempting to guard him 1 on 1. but bowen might be up to the task. that doesn't bode well as it basically means we need allen and rondo to outperform tony and manu and that's not factoring the imbalance in bench talent.

First of all Detroit will crush Boston in the playoffs.

Secondly if somehow Chauncey and 'Sheed and Tay all got hurt and Boston managed to advance, the Spurs would smear them on the court like cream cheese
