Eye on Basketball Podcast: Post-Super Bowl NBA talk
Zach Harper and Matt Moore get together to talk about their Super Bowl Sunday, where the Celtics are now, and preview Monday night's games.
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.
