Honestly Cle is done. I think the Celts are the best team in EC, almost by a long shot and I'm not saying this bc they're having this win streak. They seem complete.

And I hate the warriors. I root for any team that goes against them.

A big test for Boston will be when they go on the road against the Western teams. I don't think they are actually much better than Toronto.

I was impressed with what I saw from them. Defensively they get after it and defense doesn't usually slump.

Boston is is a clear threat to make the finals and if you get there anything can happen in a single series.

But despite the Celtic win last night and the the Rockets hot start this year I'll still say GSW is the team to beat. Even if that is a bit

Before Steph Curry, I thought attepting 3pt shots in the double digits and avg in the 20s or 30s was only possible in videogames.

Celtics shot 7 of 32 from 3 FWIW

Tatum and Brown looked their ages in this game. Tatum was a deer in headlights offensively and while Brown was more aggressive, he ended up 7 for 18. Good news is Celtics played terrible offensively and still won. Bad news is the Warriors also played bad on offense.

Just saying let's revisit this discussion after the Celtics have played the better Western teams in their arenas.
