47-0; 10-0

Never tell me the odds, ...unless they are the Vegas odds.

Two sobering stats for Celtics fans today.  The first one you have probably heard by now.  Phil Jackson coached teams are 47-0 when they win the first game of a playoff series.  The second one is a little more obscure.  Since they went to the 2-3-2 format, teams that win game 3 after the first two games were split have won all 10 series.
