Reasons Boston Celtics Will Flame Out in the Playoffs

Paul Pierce and the Celtics will be in trouble come playoff time

Boston fans may be ecstatic over the Celtics record without Rajon Rondo, but make no mistake here, folks: Come playoff time, the story will be much different.

To dismiss the Celtics 14-6 record since losing superstar point guard Rajon Rondo may seem blasphemous, but it’s the right thing to do.

Truth is, Boston does not have the legs to compete with the likes of the Indiana Pacers, the New York Knicks and especially the Miami Heat right now.

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce’s tired legs can only lead them so far, and one cannot trust Jeff Green to consistently play well for several consecutive games. Not to mention the problems of Jordan Crawford’s role and the Celtics' horrid record on the road.

Enjoy the regular season while you can, Celtics fans. The playoffs will not pan out as well.
