absolutely love watching RW3 play. Has to be among the best contracts in NBA

5 point lead. We're shooting 60% from 3, they are shooting 30% from 3. Not ideal once regression starts.

For such a good team, the gulf between the end of quarter offense and everything else is fucking mind blowing.

Haven’t played close to their best and they’re up 5 at the half. The defense looks good. Was never going to be an easy one tonight but overall I’m happy.

JT and the back court are a horror show and they are up by 5. Just fucking clean it up for a 7-8 minute stretch and they win

Yeah, that is the truth and also this team: when they play well, they are 10 points better than anyone. And when they don't, they allow anyone decent to hang around.

Rob blocked that Wiggins shot off the backboard and the ball hit him right in his face.

Boston needs to win this quarter. The building has to be crazy to start the second half.

JT scoring well, but hasn't shown much in the way of playmaking tonight. We'll need that in the second half.

I feel like GS body language said a lot. Coach and players left everything out there, hit a ton of shots and are still down.

It seems like Smart/Brown/Tatum and White are capable of some truly horrific stretches of basketball. Just mindless turnovers and decision making

Same thing everyone else is saying, they're not playing well and having tons of stupid turnovers and still up 5. If they can avoid the 3rd quarter blow up and not make stupid turnovers, I don't think GS can keep it up and they win easily.

They have found a way to not be leading by at least 10-12 points. It’s impressive really.

Can’t expect both teams to continue their shooting trends from 3.

I have a feeling that the NBA Championship will be determined by this 3rd quarter. I hope BOS plans on coming out with their hair on fire.

Worried about the second half. Warriors missed a ton of open looks.
Yeah, wouldn't be surprised by another 3rd quarter barrage. The Celtics can obviously hang on, but at this point I've learned my lesson with the "now, if they stop turning the ball over" hypotheticals, because they will turn the ball over.

Play hard on defense, more Jaylen. We got this.
