Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck cautiously optimistic heading into playoffs

first_imgThe Celtics are one of the most talented teams in the Eastern Conference, they just have some work to do to prove just how good they are.Owner Wyc Grousbeck is hoping the team will find a way to put it all together when the postseason starts April 14. Marcus Smart sees ‘great progress’ despite Celtics still losing Every game is important at this point, and while it is late in the year, Friday’s game is especially so.”These aren’t throwaway games anymore,” Grousbeck said. “These are really important games. So it starts (Friday) night. We’re in a new phase of the season.“I’m going to watch the playoffs, I’m going to root hard for us to go as far as we can possibly go and then we’ll all collect our thoughts in June and decide what to do next.” But it’s also true that Boston is incredibly tough to beat when it plays well. The Celtics have big wins over good teams throughout the year and can clearly beat anyone on any given night.However, they also have some bad losses and have frustrated fans throughout the year.The good moments, though, have Grousbeck feeling like this team could make a run and it would be hard to argue that it’s possible.”We have not played at an elite level this year,” Grousbeck said. “We have to admit that at the moment. We’re in fifth place in the East.“It’d be great to take that step now, or we’ll try to take it next year if we have to. But what I’m seeing, with the playoffs around the corner, I’m going to go into the playoffs with good energy and optimism and seeing what happens.”The Celtics sit one game back of the Pacers and 3 1/2 back of the 76ers. They have officially locked up a playoff spot, and a win over Indiana on Friday would give Boston both a tie for fourth and a 2-1 lead in the regular-season series against the Pacers with one more game left to play. “I like watching this team,” Grousbeck told the Boston Globe in an interview published Thursday. “When we’re hitting on all cylinders, we’re a dangerous team. So I’m hopeful that we can find that place starting (Friday) night (against the Pacers).”It’s undeniable that the Celtics have been somewhat of a disappointment this season. One year after winning 55 games and finishing second in the East, Boston sits in fifth this season and can win no more than 51 despite mostly healthy years from Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.
