The Boston Celtics stand a real chance of making the Eastern Conference Finals again.
They are currently duking it out against the Milwaukee Bucks, fighting hard to make it into the next, pivotal round.
The team – and the fans – have been dreaming about this moment for months now and it may actually become a reality if the Celtics keep playing as they have been.
They are winning a lot lately, even under tough circumstances, but that’s nothing new for them.
One last note from Monday's "Al Horford Game" as it will forever be remembered…
It was the 100th playoff win for the Celtics in the last 15 years. No NBA team has played, or won more playoff games in that span.

As Sean Grande pointed out on Twitter, Monday’s big win against the Bucks was the 100th playoff win for the Celtics in the last 15 years.
No other NBA team has played – or won – more playoff games during that span.
They are truly one of the most dominant and permanent fixtures in the NBA postseason.
Are they on track to once again conquer it all this year?
Big Time Boston
The season didn’t start super well for the Celtics but the team and their first-year coach Ime Udoka figured things out after a few months.
As the postseason approached, the Celtics became the team they knew they could be.
They were winning against practically every team in the league and were the most cohesive and functional unit in the entire NBA.
Of course, the postseason has been more difficult than the regular one but so far the team has proven itself.
They took out the Brooklyn Nets in a sweep and have shown that they have what it takes to outsmart the Bucks at times.
Just when it looked like Milwaukee was getting a handle on the current series, the Celtics – including veteran big man Al Horford – stepped up in a huge way and showed they are incredibly smart and resilient.
Boston fans are certain that Monday’s victory won’t be the team’s last postseason win this year.NEXT: Former NBA Star Comments On The Importance Of One Specific Player
