Coming off a series sweep of the Indiana Pacers, have the Boston Celtics figured things out?
Using last year’s playoff series against the Bucks for reference, home court is very important. Neither team won a game on the road in that series.

The Celtics will need to win at least one in Milwaukee which might be even harder to pull off this year as Milwaukee is no doubt a better team than they were last season.
The jury is still out on the Celtics.
This series will definitively tell us if the Celtics have ‘flipped the switch’ or not.
If the Celtics can come out early in this series and steal a game on the road, then they will have my attention.
This is perhaps the only way the Celtics get out of the second round and it would show a side of this group that we aren’t used to seeing.
The first two games of this series will be very telling as to the true identity of the Celtics. Lose both, they continue to be who they’ve been all season. Win both, then you’ve convinced me, they have flipped the switch. Split, and I’ll give them some credit, but I’ll need to see more.
If the Boston Celtics can win this series, I’ll be totally convinced and I’ll even take it a step further: If they win this series, you can punch their ticket to the NBA Finals because Philly and Toronto don’t scare me much.
