I just can't see it that way.
Winning is always fun (beating the Celtics is extra-fun)... that a loss may help us get a better lottery pick is more of a consolation.
My concern is our point differential suggests we're actually worse than our record and place in the strandings. I don't want to best bad teams in the second half the season and convince ourselves we're fixed.
The Celtics were clearly trying to win that game and they're a decent team though so I'll take it.
otoh, I wouldn't want to put too much weight in to the stretch of the season we went without a PF and a backup PG and got wrecked by some of the best teams in the league.
I personally won't put too much weight on beating the Celtics because they clearly would have beaten us if they could have summoned the energy and/or weren't bricking so many shots; but I will be looking at 5-man units which seem to be decently constructed to get a clue as to where we're really at.
Larry when playing well and knocking down 3's adds so much on both ends of the floor.
You have to be careful trying to draw conclusions from incomplete or badly formed lineups. Even LeBron couldn't salvage some of our terrible lineups.
