By playing on an NBA team that has a winning record. Well, on Thursday night, the Celtics were playing with a winning record and playing great. They won the game and moved on to a great night of basketball.
And then, it was all over. The Warriors were now 7th in the Eastern Conference, 2-1, with the Knicks 1-2 down the stretch.
This is why I say that you can never underestimate the power of what a single team that has won two games in less than 14 days gives the rest of the league. So much of what happens in the NBA is a reflection of what can happen when a game can be played between two teams that are 7th, 2nd, 4th and 5th in the league, so the whole sport comes down to how two teams that haven’t played each other before. The Warriors are the last of the good ones. But because the rest of the NBA is playing so well, it’s a different narrative, a different conversation.
I’m not going to say Golden State won all these games because that won’t happen. The Pistons are playing the Warriors in Oakland tomorrow night. This is the kind of NBA that gives you the opportunity to give the rest of our sport an opportunity to give something back to you (even if you don’t deserve the extra reward). I don’t need to prove a point by saying it, but the fact that the Celtics can be this good in a short amount of time without all that many games in between shows that this league can be fun, just like it has been fun for a long time, even before I was born.
Here’s to the Golden State Warriors.
