I picked Celtics in 7 before and I’m sticking with it. I don’t believe it, but I’m dying (happily, I hope) on this island.

I was just thinking they'd split on the road because it's the finals and a sweep would be too easy, there's usually some adversity along the road because there's a lot to play for. But when pressed to think which game the Celtics lose, I guess it would have to be game 3 because Dallas does seem like the type of team that will lay down if down 3-0.

I don't think Dallas has shown anything that makes me think they should win one, it's just that things happen sometimes.
Nailed it.

Edit: I'll personally go with C's winning in 5, winning G3 but losing G4. I see them coming out really sharp on Weds, determined not to let Dallas make a series of it, and putting on one of their typically strong road performances with the shooting (Tatum's in particular) bouncing back into form. But then, losing intensity for G4 and letting the Mavs have one at home. It's just not a cold-blooded "step on the neck" group of players— they're too decent, seemingly.
Well, that was awfully decent of them.
