Ray Allen didn’t approach Game 5 against the Heat any differently than the rest of the games. He arrived at TD Garden at 2:45 in the afternoon, just over four hours before tipoff. He followed his usual game-day routine — change clothes, stretch, shoot. Nothing more, nothing less.

The young ballplayer made his way over the to gym with his father and brother, the same trip they had taken every weekend for nearly a year. They arrived before 10 a.m. to secure a spot on the sign-up sheet.

It may not have been how the Celtics envisioned it at the start of the season, but as the playoffs approach, they’re driving forward with their championship ambitions — regardless of the starting point.

It doesn’t matter if the Knicks came into the game with 49 wins or 49 losses. The Celtics biggest problem was not their opponent. In many ways, they beat themselves.

On Sunday afternoon at TD Garden, there were 54 personal fouls, six technicals and one ejection in four quarters.

The Celtics only watched the first quarter of their loss to the Grizzlies, but that 12 minutes of film was all they needed to get the message.

Before Wednesday night’s Celtics-Grizzlies game, autographed boxing gloves from Manny Pacquiao adorned the Celtics’ lockers. They were a gift from the world-renowned boxer, whom many players on the team met following their championship in 2008.

Paul Pierce was right about two things: 1. It didn’t matter if the Celtics won big just as long as they won at home.
