that was either a foul on Knicks or a travel on Maxey.

Agree that if they don't call one of those you gotta use a TO

Brunson grabbed Maxey on the inbounds, and Hart fouled the shit out of him.
Yeah.. to say that was 'all clean'.. tell me you're a Knicks fan without telling me you're a Knicks fan.

Edit: Brunson grabbed Maxey so that he couldn't get away clean before the trap...where he was definitely fouled a few times.. especially if that last 'foul' on the Maxey layup/rebound was a foul.

Celtics are going to struggle with the physicality if they end up getting the Knicks. The thought of the ball in Jaylen’s hands at any point in those final 30 seconds is going to keep me up tonight.

Hart appeared to whack Maxey in the head?
There were 20 uncalled fouls in the last minute.

The last 2 minute report (do those still happen?) will be comical or they'll just have to lie.

Super embarrassing for the NBA to have the refs lose control of a playoff game like that...though admittedly fun to watch since I had no real rooting interest.

Lowry looks a lot better than he did with the Heat this year. Which isn't saying much (he looked like absolute toast) but ends up being huge for Philly
He’s in much better shape this year. His conditioning last year was awful which is weird being in Miami but probably more to do with all his injuries the last couple years.

This game probably best showcased the officiating shift of any I've seen yet.

On the plus side, a ton of crazy and fun sequences just fully played out without a whistle determining it.

On the negative side, it's clear players are still figuring out how far they can push it and eventually it feels inevitable things will find their way back to equilibrium but just with TONS of contact.

Embiid not being able to move was a major problem on the defensive glass. Game was decided by Hartenstein/Robinson getting 10,000 offensive boards in the second half.

Tillman time. But really, if the Knicks make the ECF it could be a fun series but they wouldn't worry me much.
