NBA Playoffs are underway.

Last night, the Sixers shocked us all and beat Detroit on the road.  Honestly, nobody really saw that coming.  The 76ers finished with a losing record this year.  Detroit is viewed by some as a legitimate threat against the Celtics.  With 59 wins, Detroit has the second best record in the NBA this year, only behind the superstar-packed Celtics.  Is this win significant?  I’m not sure, but I would guess that it isn’t.  I have a hard time contemplating any team taking a healthy Boston Celtics team down this year, though.  That’s regardless of the first game loss to the Sixers. Part 1 of the Dime gives a different opinion.
