According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 43 percent of Celtics fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 46 percent last week but up from 40 percent two weeks ago.
With the first-round of the playoffs underway, the most noticeable difference in the games has been the addition of nearly full crowds. More than 50 percent of fans around the country said the inclusion of fans has significantly improved the viewing experience, only 16 percent said it hasn’t improved the experience at all.
Having fans in attendance provides at least the semblance of a home-court advantage. More than three-fourths of Celtics fans believe Boston would have finished the regular season with a better record had fans been in attendance all season long.
With the rest of fans around the country watching at home, there is no shortage of great opening round series to enjoy. 30 percent of fans around the country believe the Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers series is the best of the group.
Similarly, 26 percent of fans believe the Suns best display the characteristics of a successful team. Only a quarter of one percent picked the Celtics.
