Hopeful for a Strong 2019 Playoffs
With healthy seasons from Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, the Celtics expected to take the next step in the East during the 2018-19 campaign. But Irving, Hayward and Al Horford missed playing time and the Celtics had an uneven season, landing with a 49-33 record and the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. A hopeful playoff run started with a sweep over the Indiana Pacers, yet Boston fell to Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
