Heading into tonight's key tilt with Indiana, Boston has its health

If you told me in October that a game against the Indiana Pacers at the end of March might turn out to be one of the most pivotal games of the season, I probably would have been skeptical.

Here, however, is exactly where we're at with the Boston Celtics, and, in a game that may prove the deciding factor on whether the Cs can steal home court advantage in the postseason, are at least enjoying one small gift from the basketball gods:

Everyone is (mostly) healthy.

Other than perhaps some lingering discomfort for Al Horford and Robert Williams, the entire team from top to bottom should be ready to play against the Pacers, leaving little excuse for coming away with anything but a "W".

In true New England fashion, many of us have become quite skeptical of Boston not finding a way to botch this opportunity as well, but at least for today I am going to give the team a fresh start to see what it can muster with the playoffs looming on the horizon. If you do not, I understand.
