Not only has the road to the Conference Finals opened up. Because the Bulls are without Rose, and they sit down 1-3 against the Sixers in their first round match-up. If the Sxiers beat theBulls, and if the Celtics take care of the Hawks like they should. That means in the second round, both old rivals will square off , and the Celtics own the higher seed, and better record. Meaning the Celtics will get an extra advantage in the second round. The Celtics were ready to play the entire postseason on the road, but luck has it the Celtics are on par to get homecourt in the second round.
It could mean extra rest for the Celtics, and a chance to grab a 2-0 series lead against the Sixers. Plus a game seven at home if the series get's that far. The Sixers beat the Celtics up in the regular season, but I think in the playoffs it will be the Celtics giving the beat down.
