1. That was a riveting win by the Celtics on Monday night & but it's hard for me to say it was a really encouraging one going forward. For the second straight game, Boston looked like a shell of the defensive team it was during the regular season, and I have to question how well that's going to travel when the series shifts to Chicago on Thursday.
