The 2017/18 NBA postseason has been crazy so far. There have been many super teams that have been kicked out of the playoffs during the first round, including the Thunder, the Bucks, the Seventy-Sixers, and a few other teams. One team has shocked the world by making it to the semi-finals beating the Bucks and the Sixers. This team is the Boston Celtics.

The Celtics making it this far into the postseason is insane because the Celtics lost their star player, Kyrie Irving, to a knee injury that forced him to sit out in the playoffs. They also lost star player Gordon Hayward to an ankle break for the whole season. With these injuries the Celtics were left with a team that consists mainly of rookies.

The star player on the team right now, a rookie, is Jason Tatum. He is the leading scorer on the team with 18.8 points per game. The Celtics have been playing extraordinarily well and will have to continue to play this way against a much more experienced and older team, the Cavs. The Celtics will have to find a way to guard LeBron James. The Toronto Raptors had this same problem, because they had no one big enough or strong enough to guard LeBron.

Both teams have had a lot of re-shaping but the Cavs have been struggling a lot more with getting used to playing with each other. But the Celtics have had a lot more success playing together and they are going to try to use that chemistry to beat the Cavs.
