Yes, all of the good teams these years have massive flaws. There is no 2017 Warriors (or even 2017 Cavs).That was as annoyed as I’ve been in awhile watching a Celtics game. Just about everyone gagged in various ways…those back to back Tatum/smart turnovers had me yell loud enough that I woke the dog up. Needed a double dose of Benadryl to fall asleep. All that said, I was calmer when I watched the suns highlights this morning. They ultimately got the result but they were up 15 with about 5:30 left and 4 minutes later the clips had the ball down 2. So in the span of two nights you have Giannis and the bucks blowing a 12 point lead down the stretch (I’d argue given circumstances the bucks choke was worse than the Cs given it was a borderline must win), the Celtics blowing a 13 point lead, and the suns very nearly blowing a 15 point lead.
I’m not trying to excuse the celts so much as pacify myself by realizing the three teams with the best title odds heading into the playoffs all had extremely sh*tty close out efforts in the span of about 26 hours.
