The Boston Celtics have bounced back AGAIN; 7-0 following a loss these playoffs and are now TWO wins away from an NBA Championship. I've seen a lot of #Celticsin5 talk on Twitter, and I'm not ready to go there. I respect the Warriors too much. Steph and Klay had a classic Splash Bros game. Draymond had a big night too.
Hopefully, C's in 6 to close it out in the Gaaaaaaaaadin, but I genuinely don't care if they win this series at Alcatraz.
Sure, things got dicey in the third quarter thanks to a soft-ass flagrant (regardless if that's the rule or not) that led to a SEVEN point possession by GSW, but the Celtics battled back to go into the 4th up four.
Jaylen went off in the first to score 17 of his team-high 27 points.
So much love and credit to go around. It was truly a team effort tonight. Jaylen, Jayson and Marcus combined to do something three teammates haven't done in a Finals game since 1984 (which happens to be a year the Celtics won a title).
Time Lord was out there on one leg and gave the C's 8, 10 and 4. Sure, I bet Rob Will double-double +900, but as a TEAM guy, it does not matter!!! All that does is the W.
Big Al was dishing it all night long like Lionel!!! 11, 8, and 6 for the 36 year old. What a bounce back after a quiet Game 2.
I said in the pregame blog, we just gotta win at home. The C's did tonight by 16 in a night where the Splash Bros combined for 56 points. GSW came storming back and erased an 18 point lead, but Boston battled the storm for the convincing W. I am so fired up and proud of this team. They HAVE TO come out in step on their neck mode Friday night (which I'm highly considering buying tickets to).
It's late, and we'll worry about Friday on Friday, but we gotta soak this one in for now. First home win in the Finals since June 13th, 2010; TWO DAYS AFTER I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL. It's okay to celebrate tonight. I know I am, which is a major reason why we're cutting this blog short. There's plenty of time for reactions tomorrow.
S/o Grant, he reached double figures off the bench. We know the Warriors will come out with their backs against the wall on Friday, and I like Steve Kerr, but Jeez, man be a bigger dog-whistling pussy.
Draymond's out their cut-blocking guys. He's the villain in this series. What do you want? For the Green Bleeders to cheer him when he does shit like this??
More to come tomorrow and Friday. Go C's. #BleedGreen. TWO MORE WINS.
BE MORE RATTLED!! What a bitch ass answer, and I like Klay. He's easily my favorite Warrior.
I wonder what Klay and Kerr think about this??????
