    Default 2017 NBA Playoffs round 2: (1) Boston vs. (4) Washington

    The closest thing the east has to a real rivalry. And these two franchises haven't met in the playoffs since 1984.

    Boston is way deeper, but I think John wall may be the second best player in the east to lebron James. This feels like his time to join the elite.

    Prediction: in 6

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005

    I mean I get you gotta rep your boys and adopt an us against the world attitude, but you just struggled with the corpse of Dwayne Wade and were probably saved by the corpse of Rondo fully dying.

    I'd pick them twice if I could. Boston has no answer for John Wall.

    Easy to dismiss their best player having a major family tragedy and the team not knowing how to handle it.

    Not saying the Wizards can't win or won't (i bet they're favored).... but the Celts deserve a bit more respect

    Wizards were blown out twice on the road, and held to three close home games against what is a pretty meh Hawks roster. I don't think this is as cut and dry as it's being portrayed here.

    This celtics may be the weakest top seed on paper but they really play as a team

    Pick em series and I won't be too surprised no matter how it goes but I'll say Celtics in 7...think there's going to be a wild swing or two in this series, IT's defense against either Wall or Beal would scare the hell out of me though.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Yeah I'll be ok if we get Bradley/Crowder in exchange for PG.

    You assume they would play this well with Nate that they do with Brad.

    Isaiah Thomas: 31/9 with 2 TO and 50/50% splits
    John Wall: 18/16 with 8 TO and 42/20% splits

    Only one game but after being down 16-0... it's a big one. Stevens outclassed Brooks in every way as well.

    Hope is Nate is not here to stay past next year when his contract is up.

    But if Pritchard is taking over I expect Nate to stick around.
