The Boston Celtics have been one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association for months, grabbed the second spot for the Eastern Conference playoffs and swept the New Jersey Nets 4-0 in the first round of the postseason.

Boston plays the Milwaukee Bucks next in the playoffs, as the Celtics lost game one of the teams’ semifinal series.

That led the MaineStay Media/VillageSoup sports staff to ask, in its latest poll: How far will the Celtics advance in the playoffs?

In a previous poll, voters were asked how they felt the Boston Red Sox would fare in 2022.

Sixty-five percent said the Sox would earn a playoff berth, but lose in a play-in game or early-round series. Another 20 percent felt they would win the World Series. Ten percent felt they would finish out the playoffs, while five percent felt they would win the American League pennant.
