The Pacers are definitely a feel-good team, but last night's win over the Sixers is pretty terrible for us in terms of playoff match-ups. Maybe I'm crazy, but I would much much much rather play the Pacers in the 1st round than the Sixers.
Pacers without Sabonis yes. They're incredibly weak on the boards now. Together with the Rockets one of the few teams against which the Celtics have a clear advantage there.
I fear the 76ers because of Joel Embiid. Don't care about Simmons, Richardson, Harris or Horford and I certainly don't think Brett Brown is a great coach, but Embiid is literally and figuratively a big problem.
Luckily the 76ers are one of the few teams who can't really exploit Kanter defensively.
