Parquet Post 4-10-13

The Celtics will challenge the Nets tonight in the Boston Garden at 8:00 eastern time. The Brooklyn Nets are a good team who have a lot of swag and can possibly reek havoc in the playoffs. I think the Nets will probably win tonight because they are going to want the game more than the fatigued Celtics. The Celtics look old and bored right now; they are just waiting until the playoffs to ramp it up from 1 to 10.

Speaking of the playoffs, I really like where the Celtics are right now. They are in the 7th seed and are set to play the New York Knicks in the first round. Although the Knicks are on a roll in April, winning almost 20 in a row, they really don't scare anyone in a playoff series. Especially the veteran Boston Celtics. The last time Carmelo Anthony got out of the first round of the post season, it was 2008 and he played for the Denver Nuggets. He's just not a winner. To me, Melo is the equivalent of a Tony Romo on steroids. Anthony is a much better player, but both of them haven't won anything.

But tonight, for the Celtics-Nets, the Nets are going to run away with it.
