Re: Celtics are just taking it easy for now
I don't think there is any NBA teams taking it easy. Celtics aren't neccessarily taking it easy, they are just not kicking into a more intense mode which is saved for when it is required later on in the season. Their core is old, they are waiting around for the playoffs, very hard to channel in during the reg season, when you know your team is built for the playoffs. They will be fine, I expect them to finish around 5th or 6th seed by the end of the year. Heat fans should still be very wary of them, good coach and good players.
