The 2022 NBA playoffs Eastern Conference first-round matchup between the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets is almost upon us, and there has been a virtual sea of ink spilled already.

The original hosts of the CLNS Media “Winning Plays” podcast got together to weigh what they think is going to happen starting Sunday, with perhaps some surprising takes.

The national media has given a team with superstar forward Kevin Durant and star point guard Kyrie Irving a pretty good chance of besting Boston. But the killers on Brooklyn’s roster get pretty thin after that duo, and the Celtics’ top-rated defense is nothing to sneeze at. Neither is their depth.

Join Brian Robb, Michael Pina and Rich Levine in this episode to hear their takes before the first-round series with the Nets gets going in earnest.
