Celtics' Stevens remains humble as team continues to thrive

Joel Embiid Ben Simmons

Before the season tipped off, this is the Eastern Conference Finals we expected.

According to OddsShark, the Cavs are heavy favorites at -290 to advance to the NBA Finals, while the Celtics are listed at +245, meaning a $100 bet on Boston to win the Eastern Conference Finals would result in a $245 return.

Located at 25001 Cedar Road in Lyndhurst, the Wine & Gold Pep Rally will take place on the lawn at the main entrance near Brio restaurant or by Starbucks near the escalators in the event of a rain storm.

With all the injuries the Celtics have endured, it has always been next man up for this team, and that is going to have to be the case against the Cavaliers.

Horford, now 31 years of age, has played well for the Celtics thus far, especially in the playoffs. "Obviously, you know what I've said about Brad Stevens before and his ability to get the most out of his guys". From the pedigree of coach Brad Stevens, to the emergence of Tatum and Rozier, to the glue role Al Horford has played in holding Boston together, the Cavs view the Celtics as a really, really good team.

With that being said, there are plenty of shooters around James that need attention as well, so there will surely be some one-on-one matchups to be had against him.

Morris has already proven to Brown and the rest of his teammates this season that he can handle the matchup against James.

"Just the history, you look up in the rafters and you see all the greats that has either played there or the previous arena they played in", he said. Though they scuffled through a mediocre regular season and finished fourth in the Eastern Conference, they've once again turned it on in the postseason, with LeBron James playing perhaps the best basketball of his career. He's looking to join some Celtics legends by making it to eight straight NBA Finals. Cavaliers' defenders can get twisted around on pick-and-rolls, and particularly dribble handoffs (which the Celtics run a lot of).


Love was attacked by teammates January 22 for missing most of the Oklahoma City game and practice the next day.

But Raptors coach Dwane Casey believes his team is better built to face the Cavs, or any other National Basketball Association team, this season. LeBron's defense has been criticized all season and he will obviously take offensive possessions off, even if his team has no real number 2 option to create in his absence.

Philadelphia's Joel Embiid missed a potential game-tying layup with 12.5 seconds left before the 76ers turned the ball over. Andre Igoudala does all the dirty work. It's been that way since Gordon Hayward was injured on opening night of the regular season in Cleveland. James would earn the most money next year by re-signing in Cleveland.

Here are three things to watch in this series.

Now, tiring out Embiid and tiring out LeBron are two very different tasks. "Because none of the good ones are reachable". Boston's missing its best players, 'Bron.

Nonetheless, Green's sharpshooting must continue for the Cavs to have a remote chance at taking down either the Houston Rockets or the Golden State Warriors in the Finals. These teams are juggernauts.

"I'm going to get a lot of rest from here on", said LeBron, who could afford to score a second lowest 29 points in four games because his four fellow starters combined for 66 points in the series-clinching triumph.

"I spent a lot of time with [Irving] yesterday, and I'm sure he'll spend a lot of time talking to our players individually", Stevens said. "Both teams have raised their level of play and been through it, but are here now and have to lay it all on the line". Whoever ends up breaking the other's streak in Game 1 could go a long way in determining this series's victor.
