BOSTON, MA – OCTOBER 2: Kyrie Irving /

The Boston Celtics season will begin on Tuesday night in Cleveland as Kyrie Irving returns to take on the Cavaliers. Here’s how I see that and every game playing out this season.

Kyrie Irving. Gordon Hayward. Al Horford. Marcus Smart. Jaylen Brown. Terry Rozier. Jayson Tatum. This Boston Celtics team is loaded, and they’re ready to make a run at an NBA title in 2017-18.

The season begins on Tuesday in Cleveland, and the Celtics will look to open up with a bang. Kyrie Irving will be playing his first game in Celtics green, and he’ll do it against his former team. LeBron James is day-to-day with an injury, but there’s no way he misses this one. The two stars are ready to clash.

Boston though will also have superstar Gordon Hayward on their side. Oh, and Al Horford, who may be the best passing big in the NBA, too. For now, it looks like those three will start along with second-year player Jaylen Brown and rookie Jayson Tatum. That means that Marcus Smart will be the team’s sparkplug as the 6th man and the first man off the bench. Don’t be surprised if he’s out there to finish games as well.

Here, I’ve done my best to predict the outcome of each Boston Celtics game for the 2017-18 NBA season. I also made my playoff predictions, and Boston will definitely make a deep run/ Without further ado, here are my predictions for your Boston Celtics.
