Celtics Remaining Schedule: Scuffling for Seeds to End the NBA Season

Boston could use a secret weapon going into the playoffs. (NBA Media)

With just over two weeks left in the season, teams are engaging in their last minute pushes to improve their position. Except for the Celtics, that is, who were embarrassingly slaughtered from start to finish by the Spurs on Sunday. When an opponent can look like the UConn women against you, that’s never a good thing.

With several potential killer 1st round opponents waiting, Boston will need to make sure it never happens again. It’s a tough order for sure, but with the playoffs soon upon us?, how will things turn out? It shouldn’t be too hard to look into the future…

Remaining Celtics Schedule:

Date Opponent Comments
March 31 Vs Thunder Following San Antonio with Kevin Durant? Tough task.
April 2 Vs Rockets If nothing else, the Rockets are mediocre without Yao Ming.
April 4 Vs Cavaliers No way this is going well.
April 6 @ Knicks Nate Robinson, the inside man, will help pick the Knicks apart.
April 7 @ Raptors The Raptors have been losing both lately and against Boston.
April 9 Vs Wizards For a team ahead of only New Jersey, the Wizards aren’t that magical.
April 10 @ Bucks Game one of two in a first round prequel is the most important one left.
April 13 @ Bulls It’ll be tough with Chicago trying to claw out a playoff niche.
April 14 Vs Bucks Game two of two will act as a safeguard for home court.

First Round:

#1 Cavaliers vs #8 Bulls

Chicago sneaks in over the Raptors, but Cleveland is infinitely more than a match. Cleveland sweeps.

#2 Magic vs #7 Bobcats

Orlando’s tough, but Charlotte’s no slouch at home either. Orlando 4-2.

#3 Hawks vs #6 Heat

The Heat may be winning, but the Hawks are too good in the end. Atlanta 4-3 along home/away lines.

#4 Celtics vs #5 Bucks

Boston is too unstable, and I don’t like how Pierce went down against San Antonio. Milwaukee sweeps.

#1 Lakers vs #8 Trailblazers

Portland is trying to improve, but too much stands in their way. Los Angeles 4-1.

#2 Mavericks vs #7 Spurs

These two can’t seem to get enough of each other come post-season. Dallas 4-1.

#3 Suns vs #6 Thunder

Sure, Phoenix is hot as, well, the Sun, but the Thunder are capable of roaring like, well, Thunder. Oklahoma City 4-3.

#4 Nuggets vs #5 Jazz

Denver’s had Utah’s number this year. Denver 4-2.

Second Round:

#1 Cavaliers vs #5 Bucks

Milwaukee is good this year, but not good enough. Cleveland 4-1.

#2 Magic vs #3 Hawks

This one could be very fun to watch. Orlando 4-3.

#1 Lakers vs #4 Nuggets

Denver just can’t avoid this match-up; too bad for them. Los Angeles 4-2.

#2 Mavericks vs #6 Thunder

Durant is good, but Kidd and Nowitzki are two people. Dallas 4-1.

Third Round:

#1 Cavaliers vs #2 Magic

The much awaited rematch, but this time, the Cavs will be prepared. Cleveland 4-2.

#1 Lakers vs #2 Mavericks

The Mavericks are good, but Bryant, Gasol, and Jackson’s coaching legend will be too much to overcome. Los Angeles 4-3.

NBA Finals:

#1 Cavaliers vs #1 Lakers

It’s really tough to repeat as champions, and Cleveland is the reason why. Cleveland 4-2.
