Boston Celtics fans, things are getting interesting!
For the first time EVER, five first-round NBA playoff playoff series are tied 1-1. That’s incredible. Sure, the Miami Heat are having little problem with the Charlotte Bobcats right now, and Washington has surprised everyone by taking a 2-0 lead on the Chicago Bulls, but the NBA has reached a point where any time can win, and the people who win the most from the scenario is us fans!
