Ho hum. The Celtics are in the playoffs. They just completed a sweep of the Knicks. After losing/winning half of their games coming down the stretch, dropping to 3rd place in the Eastern Conference, are the Celtics once again the CELTICS?
Nope. The Celtics shot 47% from 3 point land against the Knicks. The Knicks let Rajon Rondo run free for four games. The Knicks lost Chauncy Billups in game one, and Amar'e Stoudemire was injured and played ineffectively for games three and four. The Celtics out rebounded the Knicks. The Celtics Big Three and Rondo beat Carmelo Anthony. Big deal. Four stars beat one star. Isn't that supposed to happen?
All of Boston is back on the bandwagon. As a Celtic fan I hope they flipped the switch again. I doubt it. I think the Knicks were more like a motion detector. If you move around a motion detector the light automatically comes on. The Celtics will need to do more than move when they play the Heat. They will need to attack the Heat, beat them up on the boards and make LeBron forget he has help.
