Avery Bradley seems to think he’ll be back to face Atlanta

Avery Bradley seems to think he’ll be back to face Atlanta

This isn’t how it was supposed to go. Even with a matchup against the Hawks, most astute observers had problems pinning down exactly how this series was going to go. Most expected a hard-fought, gut-it-out, seven-game series and a few even thought the Celtics could pull the upset in the end. None expected to see [...]
