Now the Heat will finish off the Celtics to play the Lakers in the NBA Finals.

Hearing rumors that Mega-Stern is preparing to reboot the Metal Vin Baker and launch the Luc Longley II Super Turbo.  Even hearing that the Dark Donaghy is on standby.  "Anything to make LeBron as respected as Michael," according to the star player for the Lakers.  It's really scary stuff.

One. Game. At. A. Time.

Eff that... one quarter at a time.
 
2020-09-27 8:32:55 PM  
Come on Miami. No meltdowns this time.
 
2020-09-27 8:56:03 PM  
Go Celts!
 
2020-09-27 8:57:31 PM  
The Celtics start slow, but they start to turn the momentum. Just need to tighten up the three and be a little better on defense.
 
2020-09-27 9:03:57 PM  
Hayward really should have stuffed that ball. Just jump up and drop it through the net.
 
2020-09-27 9:03:57 PM  
Just tuned in, time for the Celtics to take this game over.
 
2020-09-27 9:08:11 PM  
Defense isn't what it needs to be. I mean look at the score, not even halfway through third quarter.
 
2020-09-27 9:11:57 PM  
Celts catch up. Heat pull away. Celts catch up and take lead. Heat pull away. Celts need to continue the trend and catch up, take lead, then add to the lead.

Interesting to note, Game 5 was the Celtics first "home" win since Game 2 of Round 1. Now I know it's not the same. But they do theme all the monitors and whatever comes out of the speakers based on which team is home.

I have a theory. The Celtics are used to having an amazing crowd. When they see these depressing squares with grainy video of fans sitting on their couch it's unsettling.

Indeed, nothing is ever NOT about Boston fans.

Well get your f*cking Celtic Pride and put it on display.
 
2020-09-27 9:21:32 PM  
There you go. There's a little brute force.

What I said could be said about any team with good fans. I just happen to be talking about the team I follow during a game in which they are playing.

Brad Stevens has been an amazing story

farkkkkk

I don't know that it should have been a foul though. Jaylen's leg was sort of splayed out while Butler ran behind him to avoid him. Not like he grabbed the leg or bumped into his body.

Intent isn't important other than flagrant determination, he undercut a guy in the air, simple foul.  Celts are screwed with this injury.
 
2020-09-27 9:32:47 PM  
... or he'll return. What the hell do I know, he fooled me.

Now they've caught up and are trading baskets between tie and lead.

Maybe a bit of drama to play up the foul call. I saw how he landed, I know that hurt. But maybe it didn't do any lasting damage.
 
2020-09-27 9:35:45 PM  
HE'S FINE
 
2020-09-27 9:36:02 PM  
You ain't gettin that call rookie.
 
2020-09-27 9:36:16 PM  

jaylectricity: HE'S FINE


Payback is sweet!

Yep, works for me.
 
2020-09-27 9:37:26 PM  
Now extending the lead. Next step is withstanding Miami's push and then pulling away for good.

This is not game analysis so much as my wishes based on the trends and how these kinds of games go.

The Celtics are better, hence their seeding. But when they don't match play with the Heat they look like garbage.
 
2020-09-27 9:38:48 PM  
Should be a fun finish.
 
2020-09-27 9:40:28 PM  
How many times do the Heat get the foul or drain a prayer shot with less than five two seconds left on the play clock?
 
2020-09-27 9:41:07 PM  
I thought Jaylen was the one to kick it.
 
2020-09-27 9:41:31 PM  
Let's not play the leave Herro undefended zone again.
 
2020-09-27 9:41:48 PM  
Herro ball
 
2020-09-27 9:42:03 PM  
Oh Jesus...two in a row
 
2020-09-27 9:43:15 PM  
Herro crying to the ref about Smart being mean to him.
 
2020-09-27 9:44:19 PM  
Bam wants this,
 
2020-09-27 9:44:27 PM  
I know it's different on the floor, but it always amazes me on those drives where it looks like the guy is running into a crowd of people yet somehow he ends up at the rim for an easy dunk.
 
2020-09-27 9:45:43 PM  
Oh shiat...analyst says what he thinks they should do and they do it. Or will, when they can get G Williams back into the game.
 
2020-09-27 9:46:01 PM  
Damn Bam
 
2020-09-27 9:46:11 PM  
Why is Bam getting the LeBron foul treatment.  Two week fouls in a row on Theis.
 
2020-09-27 9:46:33 PM  
second foul theis has got for bam going over his back
 
2020-09-27 9:46:36 PM  
I mean...technically a foul, their bodies touched. But if called consistently everybody would already be fouled out of this game.
 
2020-09-27 9:47:13 PM  
kemba been cold
 
2020-09-27 9:47:56 PM  
I'll also admit the Celtics have gotten their share of barely touched fouls, but don't call this crap in the late 4th of a close game.
 
2020-09-27 9:48:00 PM  
Hopefully the Celtics have learned the lessons from Games 1 and 2.
 
2020-09-27 9:49:47 PM  
Kemba always gets a lot of fouls because he's not great at defense.

jaylectricity: Now extending the lead. Next step is withstanding Miami's push and then pulling away for good.


So much for that. It'll have to be amended to "withstanding Miami's push and sinking a game winning shot at the buzzer."
 
2020-09-27 9:51:25 PM  
Or worse...defending against one.
 
2020-09-27 9:51:35 PM  
Heat lakers will be interesting
 
2020-09-27 9:52:17 PM  
Give it to Brown.
 
2020-09-27 9:52:50 PM  
Looked like a charge to me.
