People have no interest in these two teams, heck everybody picked the Pacers in 5 and they suspect the Pacers to lose in the second round. At the end of the season, Doc Rivers rested our players instead of pursuing a higher seed. We only were 2 losses back of the Atlanta Hawks and could have easily surpassed them or the Chicago Bulls. At the time we were happy about that and I know I am "Monday quarterbacking" but here's my thing: the Pacers were a much better match-up for the Celtics, here's why: 1. We beat the Pacers twice already with the third meeting being canceled due to the Boston Marathon Bombings (my thoughts and prayers). We were at home, and could have beat them again. Either way we won the season series against them. 2. No Carmelo Anthony. They don't have a super-star that can go for 40 on any given night. Paul George is a great player, but Jeff Green can limit
