Celtics’ Confidence High Going into Cavs Match-up

Maybe it’s simply a hangover in part from a pair of intoxicating battles with the two best teams in the NBA, but the Boston Celtics appear to be playing with a newfound poise and confidence. This young Boston roster truly believes it is now capable of competing with anyone in the league.

Boston was notably composed at the end of Saturday’s win in Charlotte. Even as the Hornets, winners of four straight and lingering near the top of the East, made a late-game charge, Boston never flinched. For a team that struggled to win close games at the start of the season, the Celtics played like a team that knew it was going to pull that game out (and sandwiched between the Golden State and Cleveland games, the Celtics needed to find a way to steal it).

The NBA power brokers descending on New York this week for the league’s board of governors meeting have reacted to the league’s beefed-up anti-tampering proposal with a mix of skepticism about its potential deterrent effect and concerns of privacy.

In conversations with numerous league officials, team owners, general managers and agents, some uncertainty was expressed about the means the NBA might use to investigate alleged rules violations. Atop those concerns for team officials is what league sources insist was commissioner Adam Silver’s toughest decision in bringing new rules to a vote: an annual, random auditing of five teams’ communications with rival front offices and player agents.

In reaction to the blatant disregard of free-agent tampering rules and an angry owners meeting in July, NBA owners are faced with a vote on Friday that could reshape — even if only in mechanics — how the business of player procurement is conducted.
