NBA Playoffs: Celtics vs. Cavaliers
The Boston Celtics are back in the playoffs, though their run likely won’t last too long with a first-round matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers are a premier team in the NBA, led by their trio of stars, while the Celtics roster is made up of young players, other team’s spare parts and a few castoffs. But led by head coach Brad Stevens, the Celtics won 40 games in 2014-15 (15 more victories than last season) and went on an incredible run in the second half of the season to sneak into the playoffs.
