So, Jrue Holiday does not suck in the clutch

Didn’t love the Tatum long three, but I get it.
I think up three with less than 20 seconds left.. the possession is more about using as much time on the clock and not turning the ball over... also I imagine going to the hoop is more dangerous because an offensive foul changes possession (were the C's over the limit?).

Is it good to sweep the Eastern Conference Finals?
Celtics are 12-2 in the playoffs. Yeah, a few games have been close (obviously), but that is dominant. And I don't want to hear that other teams have been missing stars due to injury. The Celtics have been without Porzingis, who is an all-star caliber player and a key to their great defense. Seems like everyone in the media forgets that.

Bob Cousy trophy, Larry Bird trophy. Bill Russell trophy. Can;t wait for the Tatum trophy to be presented in 2050 or so

JB started the game 3-10 but still played great D, ended the game 8 for his last 12 and clutch plays on both ends. It’s been so gratifying watching him continue to improve.

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.
Seriously, this was a legit team effort and I hate they can't just pick "The starting 5" as MVP

Yeah, for exactly the reason we saw. You take that time off and it just limits so much of the bad things that can happen on the other side of the possession.

This is the hungriest Celtics team in decades. They don’t the least bit satisfied right now.

Before the series, leading scorer for JT was like -250 and JB, the second favorite, was +450. I took Brown for a few bucks seemed like a good bet — but it was Tatum by 3.

Yeah, I get it. It was for me more that wtih 3+ seconds left and Turner off balance I would have liked to see a drive or a runner. But he’s comfortable on that three

I fully agree running a safe set there to get it to a J late is the correct set
