The Boston Celtics just tied that Eastern Conference Finals series against the Miami Heat at two games apiece and, once again, find themselves carrying the momentum heading into their next scheduled fight.
Now, as we approach the home stretch of round three, many believe the C’s will eventually rule the table, while others feel things will eventually go far, and, if that should happen, both teams have the ability and talent to qualify for the Championship Round.
However, there is one long-standing trend that seems to bode well for Boston’s future, and, if superstitions are believed, one could actually assume that Ime Udoka’s team will absolutely continue to clinch their place. first place in the Finals since the 2009. -10 and compete for the opportunity to hoist the No. 18 banner in the rafters at TD Garden on next season’s opening night.
Let us explain.
Dating back to 1947, every team that has made it to an NBA Finals has found itself fielding at least one former or future New York Knicks member, making it a trend that spans 75 years.
Looking at the teams currently in contention for a fourth-round bid, only two find themselves fielding former players from the infamous franchise: the Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics.
With that in mind, it could be argued (aside from the obvious that it’s all just a weird coincidence) that the Mavs might end up being that team to continue that historic trend – after all, they still technically have a chance .
That said, given that they were down 3-0 in the Western Conference Finals and would just be lucky to get just one win against this Golden State Warriors team, chances are that if we’re going to see any of these ball clubs moving forward, it’s going to be the C’s.
For those of you who don’t know, the former Knickerbocker the Boston Celtics have on their roster is big man Luke Kornet who, from 2017-2019, made Madison Square Garden his home.
Although the 26-year-old is just a bench warmer for the clovers, the trend doesn’t discriminate – let’s not forget that the Toronto Raptors won the 2019 NBA Finals with Jeremy Lin comfortably seated on the pine.
Will this long-running run live on with the Boston Celtics? At HH, we hope so.
