Celtics Close Out Pistons in 6, Look Ahead to Lakers.Boston (ChattahBox) – The Boston Celtics finally closed out a series before the deciding 7th game Friday night in Detroit. In a hard fought, instant classic game that pitted the two top teams in the NBA all season, the Celtics came from ten points down in the fourth quarter to close out the series and head for the NBA Finals for the first time sice 1987.

The dream matchup for NBA fans and for the NBA executives is here. The Celtics and the Lakers have one of the biggest rivalries in sports dating back to Magic and Larry in the 80’s, and even before that. Another subplot to the series is that Laker coach Phil Jackson is currently tied with Legendary coach and the man that built the Boston Celtics Arnold “Red” Auerbach with 9 championships each. A win for Jackson would put him in front of “Red”. The current Boston Celtics team knows that they can help to prevent that from happening. It should be a fun series, and it all starts Thursday night at 9:00pm in Boston.
