Quote from: rkwedge on May 13, 2018, 08:39 pmBoston hammers Cleveland in game 1. Reguardless how this series goes, Brad Stevens is one of the best coaches in basketball. The Celtics are going to be a powerhouse for years to come.
Quote from: parkervb on May 14, 2018, 09:44 amGame 2 of ECF, it will be interesting to see how the Cavs respond to the way the Celtics defended Lebron. It's these types of adjustments that are so crucial in a series that had me saying Celtics in 7. I just don't think Lue is up to the task vs Stevens.

Quote from: Osistheones on May 15, 2018, 12:58 pmI just think the jury is still out to a large degree. Getting to the ECF isn't exactly a monumental task and imo Stevens should be getting a little less credit and Ainge should be getting a whole lot more. The bench is thin, but Brad is still working with a lot of talent and a well-balanced crew out there. They've done very well with their 1st picks the last 4 yrs. They're also playing against an aging superstar who has a mediocre supporting cast and as you guys pointed out a non-existent coach.
Quote from: APR on May 15, 2018, 01:29 pmRegarding the Celtics, Ainge is great, but Stevens is winning without the top players Ainge brought in for them. That is impressive as is Brown and Tatum. The Celtics and Sixers should rule the East for a long time.
