What a game! (I'm going to ignore the fact we could easily be down 3-1 in this series....)

Nice long break to reset, I expect KP back for game 1 of the Finals.

I think Tatum just killed Kornet in their jumping bump celebration.

Indiana is the Celtics three or four years ago.

Edit: in that they fumbled two games away at home.. didn't know how to complete plays down the stretch. They looked extremely tight in the fourth quarter in the last two.

Indiana was up 98-90 with 5:36 to go.
Indiana was up 102-98 with 3:33 to go.

Boston ended up on a 15-4 run in the last 5:36, and a 7-0 run in the last 3:33.

They missed KP this whole series. And Kornet would have made a difference these past two games, but damn if they didn’t play to win in all these games.

So who's the MVP? I legit don't know how you can name one over another between JB and JT
I tell you what, White made the huge shot but JB made clutch play after clutch play down the stretch. Especially the block followed by skating through the lane but completing the assist to D White when the last few years he's been turning that over 9 times out of 10.

The maturity of JB just paid off with a sweep. He made the perfect play on the drive and kick for the White three to get the lead, after he made the block at the other end.

Jrue the closer with the clutch offense rebound to clinch the game

6-0 on the road in the playoffs, heading into the Finals clicking on all cylinders, with a week plus of rest.

Indiana’s shot making was insane, Celtics couldn’t throw it into the ocean from deep, and they stonewalled them at the end for the close. No point's in the last 3:33. Celtics close games now.

Avoided a disaster with Tatum and White going after the ball at the end there. Could have been an ugly collision.

Tatum didn't shoot well tonight but 26 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal.

Brown started slowly but ended with 29 points (50% shooting), 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, and 1 huge block.

Under 32% from 3.

Celtics still haven’t clicked consistently in the playoffs.

Finals could be a surprise if they do.

Credit to Indiana. They played exceedingly well, especially without Halliburton. Can’t say I love how Carlisle coached end of games though.

In years past it’s probably 2-2 or 3-1 Indy. These guys are different. Also worth noting these games aren’t nearly as competitive if KP plays.
