After a hard-fought battle against the Toronto Raptors, the 3rd seeded Celtics came out victorious in Game 7 (92-87) to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since the Tatum/Bron era began.

In what was an exhilarating matchup, Boston had to prove themselves against the reigning league Champions and it proved to be no easy task.

Following tonight's win, however, it seems the Celtics are ready to compete at the NBA's highest level and, for the Raptors, they have been sent back to the drawing board with a whole lot more questions than answers.

Twitter was blazing with all sorts of reactions from fans who all had something different to say about the game...

Some have already started looking ahead to the highly anticipated Heat vs. Celtics matchup.

It was a great series all around, but Boston and their star (Jayson Tatum) have become one of the feel-good stories of the league.

Tatum is blossoming into a superstar before our very eyes. In a crucial Game 7, he dropped 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists and the Celtics will need that from him consistently if they want to beat Miami and advance to the Finals. Many more obstacles and challenges await.

Regardless, it has been one heck of a run. For a team so young and experienced, they're fighting like no other team in the league right now, and perhaps it is time we stop seeing them as underdogs.

These guys can hang with anyone.
