Deciding game of a crucial playoff series between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers in Boston … how sweet it is. While I would have preferred that the Celtics finish things off in Philly, seeing a do-or-die game five in Boston shoudl be fun. And there’s not much the Celtics could have done. Iverson just took over in both games three and four.
One thing that irritates me is that the first-round games are so far apart. The first Celtics-Sixers game was way back on April 21. How long ago was that? The Cubs have won three times since then!
The NBA has really spread out the first-round schedule so that all the games could be televised and to get as much TV revenue as possible. I think it’s really a detriment to the flow of the first round and extends the playoffs unnecessarily. They already take too long as it is. Why make it worse?
