The Eastern Conference in the NBA has been the weaker conference all year…..for the last few years actually, but I thought that the two top teams in the East could have been the two best teams in the league.
But noooooooo, suddenly, the Pistons and the Celtics are showing their vulnerability to young and athletic teams in the 76ers and Hawks respectively. Boston looked real tight in the last minutes of the 4th quarter, like the expectations of them having the best record in the NBA and being forecast to play for the championship had suddenly got reeeaaaal heavy!
I thought that Atlanta was selling wolf tickets, but they showed that they can back it up with all of that young talent, mixed with composure! Good series’ though.
