This should be a tough and hard-fought series for both teams and should be full of excitement. Despite the injuries, Boston still reeled off 55 wins, good for second place in the Eastern Conference. Their early offensive troubles aside, five Celtics scored 19 or more points, including a 24-point, 12-rebound double-double from Al Horford and rookie Jayson Tatum's 19-point, 10-rebound performance in his playoff debut.
