    Is it that tough to teach free throw defensive rebounding?

    That is awful to let Green get that rebound.
    Oh well, great effort.

    Smart just runs into the middle of the lane. WTF?

    Apparently Klay Thompson's 'great defense' is a foul the other way.. guy had two hands on Kyrie all f'in game... Celts outplayed the Warriors in the second half only to have the refs give the other team the game at home.

    Letting them get that rebound is inexcusable.

    Yeah based on the offensive decision-making and turnovers down the stretch, I could whine about the officiating but the C's also made their own bed

    This is one the fucking should have won. Too much hero ball from Kyrie. If he makes even a tiny effort to occasionally involve Tatum in the 4th quarter, they win this.

    Gotta box out. Dammit.
    Ain't over (barely) but Cs show they belong. Give me 3 more months Hayward improvement

    Should never happen. There's no excuse for the shooter to get that rebound. It's so frustrating when a fundamental brain lapse loses the game.

    The C's have hung with or beaten the Warriors like the last 7 times they've played. Tough loss, but they know they belong. And so do the Warriors.

    Celtics made a lot of bad mistakes in the 4th but played really well. Came down to execution and we just didn’t execute well enough when it mattered. Kyrie certainly got caught trying to do too much and Morris had a bit of a rough night.

    It’s funny how grade school coaches will make sure you box out the shooter but NBA coaches won’t.

    Absolutely hoses by the refs. Cousins should have fouled out early 4th and the horrible calls on the three pointers

    Doesn’t really matter but Kyrie obviously fouled on that last three

    Did you see Kyrie get shoved like two plays before that?

    edit: do you REALLY think that the free throw disparity in this game was deserved??? like REALLY?

    That why it’s a shitty game. Not a great game. Irving on the floor, no foul. Breathe on Durant 25 feet from the basket. Foul.

    Another close game last year's team wins. Execution down the stretch was a killer.

    Klay Thompson is allowed to play so physical on defense, meanwhile Jaylen is getting called for fouls for breathing on people. It's a fucking joke. Kyrie had no fucking chance when guys are allowed to mug him all over the court.

    Bench didn’t do enough tonight where that should’ve been an advantage.

    Bullshit. Horford was beastly, Tatum took meh shots that quarter. Kyrie was great except for the 3 TO.

    Great game. Tatum was pinching Durant on the rebound. Smart just to excited to go get the ball. Unlucky bounce.

    Showed the wife the 3 fouls on one play then showed her this thread telling her how everyone would be complaining about the foul. I wasn’t disappointed.

    Awesome game - very happy with it except for the final result. This team is going to finals and giving them a good matchup.

    Forget boxing out. Why doesn't Brad have 4 Celtics in the lane on the free throw? Why is Marcus running form half court to get in front of the shooter? Of course he's going to be out of position, he's sprinting 50 feet and trying to time it perfectly. I have no idea why they didn't stack the lane with everyone, and bring Baynes off the bench.

    It's Tatum's job to squeeze the guy on the lane. It was Smart's job to run into the lane and box out the FT shooter. He ran in too far, and couldn't body Green when he clanged the FT. Marcus Smart is the one guy on the Celtics who we expect to make the last second defensive play, and he failed to do the most fundamental thing he was supposed to do, which is get a body on the FT shooter.

    This is true. He was so good early this season but he thinks he’s that player all the time. There’s a lot to like about his game but he just has no measure for when he’s hot or cold
