Found May 09, 2013 on Celtics Life:
First time since 2007 that there isn't a Boston Celtics' or Los Angeles Lakers' team in the second round of the NBA playoffs. These two teams make up 33 NBA titles out of 67 NBA championships (almost half). Seriously, I hate the Lakers so I am happy they aren't in it.

As for our team, we had a chance to do something special but we couldn't get it done. Oh well time for next year. Follow Terry P here
