(Photo by Jacob Kupferman/Getty Images)   The Boston Celtics head into the NBA playoffs as the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a legitimate chance of going the distance as long as this talented squad led by superstar forward Jayson Tatum can stay productive and healthy. In the first round of the playoffs, the Celtics drew the reigning Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat in what many believe will be a very physical series, even without superstar Jimmy Butler being able to play due to a knee injury suffered in the Play-In Tournament.

(Photo By Winslow Townson/Getty Images)   The Boston Celtics’ first-round opponent in the NBA playoffs seemed to pose a bit of a threat, considering they have to get through the Miami Heat, who beat them in the Eastern Conference Finals in seven games last year. However, this time around, the Heat don’t have their undisputed leader on the basketball floor, with superstar Jimmy Butler dealing with a knee injury, which could keep him out of the entire series. That said, the Celtics have an opportunity to make easy work of the Heat, which they are already taking full advantage of as they wer ..read more

Boston was in control from the opening tip, playing their usual brand of tough-nosed defense while getting their way offensively. The Heat showed some grit throughout the afternoon, but ..read more

(Photo By Winslow Townson/Getty Images)   Game 1 of the series between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat went about as expected as the Celtics blew out the Heat to take a 1-0 lead. Boston is the overwhelming favorite to win the matchup because Miami will be without Jimmy Butler, who is dealing with a knee injury that he suffered in the Play-In Tournament against the Philadelphia 76ers. No Butler means the Heat don’t have the same level of shotmaking, defense, and clutch shooting they enjoyed in last year’s postseason series against the Celtics.
