The Eastern Conference is wide open and both the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors are trying to position themselves as legit contenders. Both teams are led by exuberant young and unproven talent. Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet have continued their stellar play they exhibited in last years NBA Finals, but won’t have Kawhi Leonard this go around. Kemba Walker has been a seamless fit with the Celtics young core of Jayson Tatum and Jalen Brown, but still have much to prove in the postseason. This Christmas day matchup could be a taste of what’s to come once the playoffs arrive.
