Favorites in the East?
After the Kawhi Leonard trade, are the Boston Celtics still the favorite in the East? Toronto might have the best defense in the conference, but Boston has more offensive versatility and more capable scorers.
Finding the rotation
Boston has so many talented wings supposedly all wanting minutes; Brad Stevens will face a much different challenge than the season prior. Marcus Morris and Terry Rozier’s contract status will make the lack of minutes even more challenging.
Who is projected to be in the Boston Celtics playoff rotation? As crazy as it sounds, Marcus Morris is not a lock to receive consistent minutes. Depending on the matchup Stevens may need to pick one out of Daniel Theis, Marcus Morris, and Semi Ojeleye.
Boston’s rotation also is dependent on if they attempt to duck the tax.
Mike and Alex discuss what a potential playoff matchup between Boston and Toronto may look like. Who/What are the biggest strengths for each team and what may ultimately decide the series.
