Almost No. 18
After a season of ups and downs, injuries and vast swings in fan confidence, the Celtics put together a thrilling run through the playoffs in the spring of 2010. After bouncing the Heat, Cavaliers and Magic in the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Celtics took the Lakers to seven games, but lost a heartbreaker in LA.
"It was a hell of a series," Rivers said. "I thought both teams played terrific. I thought both teams played hard. It was a tough game for either team to lose."
