Despite already being crowned NBA Champions for the 4th time wince 2015, the Golden State Warriors will play the Boston Celtics tonight in Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals: Presented by YoutubeTV.
Regardless of the outcome of tonight's exhibition, it'll be the final Celtics' home game of the season, and what a season it's been. Losing stinks, but how about a little perspective? From 18-21 to the NBA Finals. It blows that they've already lost the ship, but what a run. I've sure had a lot of stressful fun throughout!
Technically you could consider this an elimination game; even though the Warriors closed it out 3-2, and in three elimination games these playoffs, that's where Tatum's played his best ball.
Unfortunately, he and the Celtics have not played great ball over the last two games. There were definitely stretches of solid play, but they melted like the polar ice caps in clutch time. After holding a 2-1 series lead, they imploded Friday night with one of the worst offensive stretches in NBA history.
Then Monday night in Game 5, they fought back after a rough start and took the lead in the 3rd quarter, only letting a miracle shot turn into a spiral of despair.
But here we are, it's Game 6, at the Garden. I reaaaaally want to go and give the boys in green (well, probably white tonight) my support. People forget that the Celtics are 3-0 in playoff games with Ole Dozo in the house and 2-0 this season when I take up one and a half seats.
It's pretty simple and has been beaten into our heads with a led pipe, but the name of the game for the Boston Celtics is turnovers. If they commit 16 or less, they're almost unbeatable, but when it goes above that threshold, they're the Washington Generals.
LFG!!!!! I'M NOT A JINX GUY, BUT THE WARRIORS MAY HAVE JINXED THEMSELVES BY BANNING FAKE KLAY FOR LIFE (#badvibes). I NEED TO TAKE A SHOWER AND GET MY BROWS DID SO MY 4-BILL ASS LOOKS PRESENTABLE IN PERSON TO BLEED GREEN. WE AREN'T DEAD YET, JUST GOTTA WIN 2 GAMES IN A ROW, OR FROM A MICRO-POV, WIN TONIGHT, WORRY ABOUT SUNDAY ON SUNDAY. LET'S GO CELTICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT'S NOT OVER! BLEED GREEN!!!!!!
