CelticsBlog: Celtics Need Just One More Win

With Sunday night's Game 5 victory, the Celtics are now just one win away from winning their 18th NBA Championship. It's been a surprising ride for this Boston team in the playoffs, and a run that has gone a long way in silencing critics, says Jimmy Toscano over at CelticsBlog.

They're too old.

They'll never be healthy enough.

They don't seem to want it like they did back in 2007.

They don't have what it takes to win a championship.

All of this was said throughout the regular season, and all of it seemed to be warranted at the time. All of it has been proven false.

The only fact that remains is that the Boston Celtics are one win away from becoming the 2009-10 NBA Champions.

One win away from proving the doubters wrong. One win away from raising that 18th Banner. One win away from vindication.
