Boston Celtics Raise 17th Banner And Win Game Opener

The Boston Celtics, 2008 NBA World Champions, raised their 17th banner tonight and got their rings. Out of all of the players, “the truth”, Paul Pierce was very emotional because he waited so long as a member of the Celtics without winning one. Last year, the Celtics went from being the worst team in the NBA to being ranked 1st in the season and win another NBA title. It shows how well this team worked together towards one goal.

The Celtics beat the Cleveland Cavilers 90-85 at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston and it was a very interesting game. The Celtics were behind the whole 1st half of the game. They came out in the 3rd and 4th pounding away at the Cavilers and took over the lead. They went back and forth for a while, but finally the Celtics finished the game strong.

Can the Celtics repeat as champions this year? Can they regain the dynasty status? Only time will tell, but it will be a fun year to watch.
