My first 52 Games story for DigBoston should’ve been on the Celtics’ season opener on Christmas Day. But as I discovered, all of Boston shuts down on December 25, and I wound up waiting a week to begin the series.
It’s kind of fitting, then, that my final 52 Games story would also be on the Celtics. Specifically, Game 6 of the Celtics-76ers series late last week.
I predicted then that the Celtics wouldn’t have enough left to beat the more-athletic Miami Heat, and so far I’ve been right. I said Celtics fans should turn out in force for Games 3 and 4 at the Garden this weekend and show their support despite what could very well be a disappointing outcome to the series. Hopefully, I’m right a second time.
And if you missed my last Wide Month of Sports that appeared in the print edition, here’s the online version.
