How They Got Here: The Celtics defeated the Bulls in one of the most exciting playoff series in NBA history. It took seven games and numerous overtimes but Boston pulled out the victory in the decisive game to move on.
A Reason To Cheer For The Celtics: The Celtics are a huge part of the historical fabric of the NBA, having won 17 championships, 20 conference title and 27 division titles. As far as tradition goes, it's tough to top the Celts, with 21 numbers retired. Fueled by Kevin Garnett's passion and the unstoppable power of the Big Three, Boston got off to an incredible 27-2 start this season. They won 19 straight games (a franchise record) and had another streak of 12 wins in a row this season. But without Garnett for the second season, there could be trouble. But the Celtics are still an exciting team to watch, and wouldn't it be fun to see an epic Celtics-Lakers rematch in the Finals? The Celts are a hard-working, physical squad, and rather than resting on last season's accolades, they look just as hungry to win it this year.
Players to Watch: Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo
