I don't want to jinx it or anything but... well, on second thought, I'm not going to say anything. I'm just going to whistle past that graveyard and pretend the thought never entered my head. I'll just state that the Celtics have done well lately and that the schedule is going to be tough over the last week, ...just like it has been since the All Star break.
The Celtics flew to Miami Sunday night in advance of a brutal five-games-in-six-day-stretch that starts Tuesday with a visit to the Heat. Boston then hosts the Magic Wednesday night in Boston before embarking on its lone back-to-back-to-back of the season with stops in Toronto, New Jersey, and Charlotte starting Friday.

Miami is not likely going to be as easy a game as it was last time and Atlanta might just be our first round matchup. So this should indeed be an interesting week.
