The Boston Celtics are still in the rebuilding stages but did earn a playoff spot, surprisingly, last year earning the No. 7 seed in a weak Eastern Conference. However, despite the early exit from the playoffs at the hands of the Cavaliers, the best basketball may be yet to come for the Boston Celtics. The team has a talented young core of players mixed in with some veterans such as forwards Amir Johnson and David Lee. A return trip to the playoffs is expected from these Celtics, but just how far can they go remains the question. Below are the top five Celtics tickets on the secondary market on TicketIQ.
