The prevailing belief in NBA circles suggests that the Boston Celtics stand as prime contenders for this year’s championship title. In recent months, their performance has often appeared formidable, firmly securing their position as the top team in the Eastern Conference.

However, Skip Bayless remains cautious about anointing them as frontrunners for the championship this season.

During Monday’s episode of “Undisputed,” Bayless outlined several factors contributing to his reservations about the Celtics, notably their heavy reliance on three-pointers.

Bayless has consistently emphasized the Celtics’ dependency on the three-point shot, suggesting that their success hinges on their proficiency from beyond the arc.

Indeed, the Celtics lead the league in attempts from downtown, with this facet becoming integral to their offensive strategy. When their three-pointers are connecting, the Celtics exhibit a formidable level of play, appearing nearly unstoppable.

Conversely, their vulnerability becomes apparent when their shooting from long range falters, rendering them beatable.

Despite their prolonged dominance in the conference, some observers believe that the Celtics may have grown complacent, failing to address certain shortcomings that could impede their progress.

As the playoffs loom, these overlooked issues might come back to haunt them, posing a threat to their postseason ambitions.

Benefiting from a top seeding, the Boston Celtics currently enjoy a substantial break before the playoffs commence. Once the postseason action begins, they will face formidable opponents such as the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, or Atlanta Hawks in the opening round.

While they are favored to emerge victorious in any series they enter, both fans and the team alike should refrain from assuming an easy path to championship glory.

The playoffs often introduce a different dynamic compared to the regular season, and despite Boston’s impressive performance thus far, securing victory in the postseason remains far from guaranteed.
