Absolutely shocked they came out like this in the 3rd.
Give it to the dubs. They're teaching the Cs how to step on the throat. Cs tried making a run, Dubs kept responding. One or two misses in that stretch to start the 3rd, and it's a single digit game. Instead they kept them at 13-16 and then finished them with the heads hot.

Champions doing what champions do.

Best part of my night is likely getting a friend a 20:1 parlay today for this game that seems likely to hit.

I’d have been happy to pay him the sum instead for a C’s win. Just without emotion. Numb.

Idgaf if they are hitting wild shots it’s the stupid defense lazy offense no rebounding bullshit that is a traveshamockery. Where’s the fucking pride? How do you have no energy playing for your season? You have max 6 more quarters in the season why are you out there fucking COASTING? At home no less.
yup. No excuse for lack of 50/50 balls and all the offensive rebounds. Just cannot happen

Turnovers, out-hustled on the glass and poor bench play.

But you can overcome most of that if Tatum showed up. Curry did, Tatum didn’t. That’s probably the series summary.

I’m trying to talk myself into the idea that this will turn out to be a master’s class for the young Celtics on what being a champion is all about.

It’s not really helping, though…

This kind of reminds me of the 2013 Bruins Blackhawks series in that the toll the earlier rounds took meant that by the finals they were so banged up it wasn’t really the same team it had been a few weeks earlier.

Even if Tatum were hitting shots they would probably find a way to marginalize him on O.

You guys blaming Tatum are something else. The bench has given them so little that it’s impossible to win. All three guys are at least -22 tonight and frankly that’s understating how fucking bad they were.
