Boston Celtics: 2 reasons why Cs should tank during play-in tournament



Article Summary:

It’s official – the Boston Celtics are heading towards a spot in the highly controversial play-in tournament.

Not eliminated from the postseason, yet not guaranteed a spot even after Sunday’s regular-season finale against the New York Knicks – who clinched a berth themselves Wednesday night with Boston’s disgusting loss to the Cavaliers – the Cs currently hold the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference standings and, should things remain the same, they’ll be playing the Charlotte Hornets in “Round one” of the play-in.

If they were to lose they’d then find themselves with one more opportunity to nab a playoff spot, as they’d go up against the winner between the ninth and tenth seed matchup where, whoever wins, lands the eighth slot.

That said, there’s an argument to be made that there are some benefits that could come from the Boston Celtics taking part in a semi-tank during the upcoming play-in tournament.
