PBT Extra bold prediction previews: Can Boston win Atlantic Division?

1 Comment

Toronto won the Atlantic Division last season by nine games; they were the only team in the division above .500.

But Brad Stevens guided his Celtics to a 20-11 record after the All-Star Break, he’s got a young team that’s a year more mature, and they made a quality addition in free agent Amir Johnson. This season, could Boston finish ahead of Toronto and win the division?

I don’t think so, and lay out why in this PBT Extra with Jenna Corrado. Toronto may be transitioning to a new style but that is still a team with the best talent level in the division, and that’s going to be tough for Boston to overcome. But they could make the Atlantic worth watching.
