Morning, morning, morning, NBA fans!
I don’t know about you, but I’m in a good mood following last night’s surprising Boston Celtics’ victory. I firmly believe that those sort of wins will matter more in the future than they will this year. We all know this team would be incredibly lucky just to sneak into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, so adding a number to the win column isn’t as big a deal as much as Brad Stevens getting his squad to believe that they can pull out a victory no matter what the circumstances.
So yeah: I enjoyed the win, and I’m feeling good! Let’s keep that momentum rolling with today’s links!
