    Celtics

    I know the Celtics won today and everything, but ever since the playoffs started it looks like they have lost a little bit of their swagger and confidence. The Cavs probably should have won a game at Boston. They went 31-10 on the road this season, but can't win one on the road. I know that the home teams are like 22-2 at home in the playoffs or something like that, but this is the same Celtics team, who everyone thought was just going to steamroll through the playoffs and win their 17th NBA title.

    I read quite a bit about the NBA and most journalists were sceptical that the Celtics could even make it out of the East in their first year together.

    As they dominated the East during the regular season some opinions changed, but to say everyone thought they'd "steamroll" would be overdramatic.

    Great game today btw - James impresses me everytime out. Peirce damn near blew it with his ball handling after his impressive 3 & a half quarters.

    Boston will probably have to win a road game or 2 against Detroit.

    It's been sooooooo long since the Celtics have been any good - it's natural that their players may have a case of the nerves.
