Celtics Repeat-Worthy in 2008-09?

The Celtics continue doin it and doin it and doin it well..Representin' Boston and the NBA Championship so far, the C's are 7-1 in this fresh 2008-09 season. Tonight saw an enthusiastic and talented Toronto Raptors team take the court in Boston, and actually put up a double digit lead for some time on the Celtics into the second half. In the second half, the C's battled their way back matching shots and locking Toronto down on defense. It was behind Paul Pierce's 36 points and 9 boards that the Celtics were able to win tonight 94-87 on their home court. KG added 21 points and 10 boards, while Ray Allen chipped in 19. The big 3 were on point and the Celtics look repeat worthy as champs.

With the season still young, there doesn't look to be much of an Eastern Conference threat for the Celtics. The Cavaliers are always the exception, as Lebron still wants to get back to the Finals and capture that trophy. The Pistons having added Iverson have given themselves a deadly component to their squad, a small man capable of winning games. And tonight, the Raptors showed that they are a viable force in the East as well. The combo of Bosh and Jermaine O'Neal down low is quite powerful in the paint. These two may be able to carry Toronto into the second round of this year's playoffs, barring any unfortunate injuries. The Raptors could still use some sort of veteran leadership at the point/shooting guard. If they add that, they might be considered one of the East's top 3, and a threat to the Celtics.
