Boston Celtics Playoff TicketsWhen it comes to NBA titles, there are the Celtics and the Lakers and then everyone else in the league. For the Celtics, the names may have changed from year to year, but the result was almost always the same: a trip to the NBA Finals. From 1959 to 1966, the Celtics were an unbeatable force in the league and won eight straight titles. The glory days resurfaced for the team in the 1980s with three more titles. Boston fans are not simply happy just to make the playoffs — they expect a title every time their team makes the postseason. With that excitement, there is little wonder that fans will flock to the TD Garden when their beloved C's make the playoffs, which is usually an annual occurrence. Boston Celtics playoff tickets are in high demand. Get your Boston Celtics playoff tickets at StubHub today.

In the second round, the Celtics went up against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks and fell in five games.
What are some of the best moments in Boston Celtics playoff history?With such a storied playoff history, it may be hard to choose the best moments. Two unforgettable ones involve steals. The first is when John Havlicek swiped an inbounds pass in the seventh game of the 1965 Eastern Conference finals against the Philadelphia 76ers, leading to radio broadcaster Johnny Most's famous call of "Havlicek stole the ball!" The second is when Larry Bird stole the inbounds pass late in the fifth game of the 1987 Eastern Conference finals against the Detroit Pistons and passed the ball to Dennis Johnson for the eventual winning basket.
Who are some of the all-time greats in Celtics' playoff history?Bill Russell was the mainstay and the man in the middle when the Celtics went on their incredible run of eight consecutive championships starting in 1959. When the Celtics were born again in 1979, the team was led by the man from French Lick, Ind., Larry Bird.
Where do the Boston Celtics play their home playoff games?For many years, the Celtics played in the old Boston Garden, which was a truly terrifying place to play for opponents who were not familiar with the intricacies of the now defunct building. Now, the Celtics play in TD Garden, which was the setting when the Celtics won the 2008 NBA Championship. The Celtics historically have had a pronounced home court advantage in the playoffs and, if there is a Game 7 on their home court, are a prohibitive favorite to win.
Who is the Boston Celtics' biggest playoff rival?Many old-school NBA fans know all about the Celtics against the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals as it seemed to be an annual event. The teams met in the NBA Finals 12 times in five decades with the Celtics winning nine times.
When was the Boston Celtics' last NBA Championship?The Celtics last won a title in 2008. After general manager Danny Ainge acquired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, they paired with Paul Pierce to form the Celtics' "Big Three." The Celtics then got past the Los Angeles Lakers in six games in a classic finals matchup that reminded many fans of the rivalries of old.
