On the verge of completing a four-game sweep of the Orlando Magic, one can't help but wonder if the Celtics have the Bruins' postseason collapse on their mind.
Kevin Garnett was asked before the C's practice on Sunday if the Bruins’ recent choke job in the playoffs serves as a "cautionary tale" for his team.
Earlier this month, the Bruins — just like the Celtics have done here against the Magic — won the first three games of their series before losing four straight games to the Philadelphia Flyers.
"This is not hockey, so I’m not even looking at that," Garnett told the Orlando Sentinel. "The Bruins are not the Celtics. The Celtics are not the Bruins. Apples and oranges."
The Celtics will look to finish off the Magic in Game 4 at the TD Garden on Monday night.
"We know that it’s an Orlando team that has won eight straight playoff games, an Orlando team that’s won 56 games during the regular season and is capable," Paul Pierce said. "So, we’re not going to take them for granted."
