Eye on Basketball Podcast: Post-Super Bowl NBA talk

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

It's Super Bowl Monday and Matt Moore joins me to discuss a little bit about the game. After about eight minutes of rehashing our Super Bowl experience, we get into the Boston Celtics and where they currently stand in the post-Rondo part of their season. They're 4-0 since he went down with a torn ACL, so how good can they be? Why are they winning right now? Could they push the Miami Heat in a seven-game series? Is Matt crazy for thinking it's possible?

We also look into a couple of things we've learned this season. The first is that Toney Douglas of the Houston Rockets is actually pretty good. He's become a much better player this year than he was last season. The other is that Kyrie Irving's rookie season was definitely not a fluke. He's become one of the best fourth quarter scorers in the NBA. But can Cleveland surround him with a good team?

We talk about all of that plus trade rumors, power outages, and preview Monday night's games.
