Year of the Purple Heart: The Second Edition

With the injuries piling up, it's hard not to see parallels between this team and the last one that tried to repeat as NBA champions in Boston. The 1987 team fell just two games short of pulling it off, despite losing over 200 games due to injury. A year after going 40-1 at home, somehow that team went 39-2 at the Gahden the next year. The regular season and playoffs were a grind and painful to watch unfold, but they gutted it out for as long as they could.
