At a record of 42 – 25, the Boston Celtics are close behind Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the fight for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. While the Celtics have struggled throughout the season with injuries and consistency, they are poised for a deep playoff run if they can solve their problems with consistency and ball control.

The Celtics recently finished travelling on a four-game road trip in the West. Last week, they suffered tough, late losses to the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers. On Sunday, March 5th, the Celtics lost on a buzzer-beater 3-pointer to the Suns with a score of 106 – 109. However, they turned things around with a stunning road win over the Golden State Warriors, before dropping the final game of their western trip to the Denver Nuggets.

The Celtics came home and won a stunner against the Chicago Bulls in a 20-point blowout. They now will face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7:30pm tonight. The Celtics have all the necessary pieces for success, with star point guard Isaiah Thomas producing at a career high, averaging almost 30 points a game and shooting over 38% from behind the 3-point arc. Towering at 5’ 9”, he has created a reputation for himself in the NBA as a clutch, albeit small, floor general. Known by his fans as “Mr. Fourth Quarter” because of his incredible late-game production. Role players Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder have also contributed to the Celtics success.

While the Celtics organization received some criticism after refusing to sign a star player to supplement Thomas, they have found significant success with their current roster. It remains to be seen whether it will be enough to win the NBA Finals. Go Celtics!
