The truth is that the Celtics are trying to chase down the top seeded Chicago Bulls in the East, and although the Bulls have a young-talented team, they will have to worry if they meet the experienced Celts down the stretch.

Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett is still confident his squad can hunt down the Chicago Bulls for the No. 1 seed in the East standings. Contrary to what most people out there, Garnett thinks playoff seeding is vital, even for an experienced team like the Celtics. Garnett’s Celtics are three games behind the Bulls. Nevertheless, the former league MVP has been impressed with the play of Bulls point guard, and MVP favorite, Derrick Rose all season. Betting lines.
“Oh my god, Derrick Rose has taken probably 100 notches of a takeoff from where he started,” Garnett said. “Nothing has shocked me about anything he’s obtained. And the fact that he’s taken his team, put it on his back, his progression, the sense that he’s still humble to it all, the fact that he’s taken his team to the next level. Coach Tom Thibodeau putting the guys around him, some quality guys, a good combination of not just good, but older vets, and some younger players around him. All together these has been impressive”, Kevin added.
“The Big Ticket” as Garnett is also known, admitted he is looking forward to the possibility of facing the Bulls in the Eastern Conference playoffs, perhaps in the East Finals.
