Well they were playing quite well in the regular season. I think with Thomas losing his sister it affected him mentally not to mention the lack of playoff experience with most of the roster means in a 7 game series they were at best even odds against the Bulls.

The Bulls also have by far the best player in the series in Jimmy Butler.

Let's be real the Celtics are an "ok" team. They can get to contender status if they add a superstar somehow. But theyre #1 because they play in the east. They're better than us right now, but the landscape of that can change quickly

In the east its pretty much Cavs vs the rest of the field anyways. I don't think anybody from that conference can beat the Cavs in a 7 game series, no matter what their seeding is.

Celtics giving up?

Only reason Celtics finished #1 is because the Cavs have been complacent since midseason. Celtics can't rebound well enough to reach the championship series.

Horford is not a star anymore, just a good starter
Isaiah, once Bulls doubled him, no other teammates can create offense. Unless Isaiah can save them, it's a sweep

This was the worst matchup for the Celdicks. They play a team that can fully take advantage of their weaknesses and neutralize their strengths. Buck Foston has no answer for elite talent at SF like Butler. Chicago has a very playoff-experienced guard crew who can step it up against playoff newbies like Thomas/Bradley. The Bulls have better talent at PF/C while all the Celdicks have is Al Horford who is grossly overrated and rather undersized at C. If Chicago wins out, I couldn't be any more happier.

Maybe I'm just a big softy but I want Isaiah to win this series for his sister. (bleep) Boston. I hate Boston. Cops showed up at my house during game 7 because it sounded like someone was being slaughtered. As our president Donny Johnny would say; No one hates Boston more than me and I am the LEAST fan-o-Boston alive. Believe me. (Believe me). I just want Isaiah to get through this series though.
