As we countdown to the opening tip of Game 1, in this first round series, I thought it would be fun to get your takes and predictions. I reached out to the community 2 days ago in the Fan Post section for some thoughts and feedback. I asked the following:
Who do you think will win the series & in how many games? What will be the series storyline, and who is a potential dark horse?
Feel free to add your own in the comments section:
StrengthIN#S: Celtics in 5
Series Storyline: Jayson Tatum & Jaylen Brown show up the Greek Freak / Brad Stevens is a genius.
Dark Horse: Greg Monroe’s revenge… and a surprising Yabu show. Moose and the Dancing Bear are an unstoppable force.
Side note: Just imagine when we have a bear, a moose, and a Cobra. Who can stop that???
Kabs: Celtics in 6
Series Storyline: “Celtics defense too much for Bucks and Giannis”
Dark horse: Larkin lead Celtics past Bucks with skilled ball handling, recovery of loose balls and 3PT sharpshooting!
terd furgsuon’s hat: Celtics in 6
Series Storyline: Jabari Parker turns heads in playoff debut
Dark Horse: For the Bucks, Jabari Parker averages 25ppg and absolutely blows the roof off (in his contract year). For the Celtics, Terry Rozier averages 7 assists and 2 steals per game as he suddenly takes to his role.
86 Celtics GOAT: Game One will be a dogfight
Game 1 Storyline: …Giannis will have unstoppable moments on both ends and Celtics will have to grind with defense and some tough threes to stay in the game. Who will be the go-to guy down the stretch? Either Tatum will find his groove or Morris will take half a dozen midrange jumpers in the fourth. Will that be enough to stop the Greak Freak’s attacking barrage at the end?
Dark Horse: I can’t think past Game One, which will set up a brand new storyline for the loser to make adjustments.
Don’t forget the early tip off time of 1pm everyone, and Let’s Go Celtics!
