Who Really Thought the Celtics Were in Trouble? Couldn’t Be Me

After going 3-7 in their last 10 games, the Celtics looked like their season was over. Everyone thought they were done, expect for me. I totally didn’t have three articles in my drafts with words like “Celtics” and “over” and “done” and “kill me” in the headline. I never once, for even a second, had doubts about our future, especially after last night.

The Celtics WORKED the “best team ever” Warriors 128-95. No, Klay Thompson did not play, but I have a hard time believing he would have had a 33 point impact on the game. Tatum was pinning KD on the backboard, Scary Terry wanted all the smoke from Boogie, Hayward played like he only does against the Timberwolves and most importantly, the Celtics won an important game with Kyrie in the lineup.

After the All-Star Break, Boston was doing significantly better without Kyrie in the lineup. It looked like he had already exercised his player option with 20 games remaining in the season. Players claimed there were “too many egos” and that the locker room was “toxic”, but all that has seemed too change. Before last night, I would have assumed that Kyrie was 30/70 staying to going. Now, it’s at 60/40. There is hope.

The biggest story though is definitely Gordon Hayward. He dropped 30 off the bench which is a beatdown he normally reserves just for the T-wolves. The Celtic’s biggest strength (and Warriors biggest weakness) is their bench and Hayward is the reason why. Versus the Golden State bench, the final score was 32-30. Hayward was only outscored by 2 points.

It is time for everyone to stop worrying about the Celtics… unless we hit another losing streak.
