Taking Draymond Green instead of Fab Melo maybe would have helped the Celtics at least a little bit.
The Spurs went 7 games in Round One and won the title. The Celtics couldn't beat the Hawks the first year of Big 3. Teams lose in postseason
In '85 & '87 we had mental toughness to go with our talent and that's why we were able to beat the Celtics.
My Showtime Lakers team lost to the Celtics in '84 because we weren't mentally tough enough and I turned the ball over in key moments.
Jared Sullinger (bruised tailbone) did not practice today. Listed as probable. Celtics need his rebounding.
No matter the end, this playoff series has been really valuable for the Celtics. They've fought, too.
