The 2018/2019 Boston Celtics season is now officially in Regular Season mode. The Celtics kicked off the regular season with a chance to make a huge statement as they faced 3 of their division foes 2 of which many feel are the biggest threats to the Celtics in their quest to win the Eastern Conference and get to the NBA Finals. The Celtics kicked off the regular season being the first game of the NBA Season overall as they hosted the Philadelphia 76ers this past Tuesday night in a rematch of last years 2nd round playoff matchup. Despite Irving and Hayward both looking rusty as Irving went 2/14 for 7 points while Hayward went 4/12 for 10 points and was placed in a 25 minute restriction which he will be under for the first month of the season the Celtics still blew out the 76ers 105-87 in a game that saw them take their first lead of the game with 6:34 left in the 1st quarter and never relinquish it. The Celtics 3 nights later were in Toronto to take on the Toronto Raptors which many feel due to the Raptors now having Kawhi Leonard and the fact that they were the #1 seed last year in the East that the Raptors would be the biggest threat to the Celtics in the Eastern Conference. We saw a back and forth game that saw the Celtics get the better of the Raptors in the 1st half but falter in the 2nd half and ultimately lose 113-101. The Celtics had issues rebounding in that game, issues with the officiating in the 2nd half as Leonard got the superstar treatment and the bench not showing up offensively. The Celtics would travel to NY to face the Knicks the next night. The Celtics got pushed to a final possesion game by the Knicks while playing with Hayward and losing Baynes in the 1st half. Tatum and Irving led the way.
