Is this team bipolar or what ? :P

I was excited after the great first quarter but thought we were due for a letdown at some point and a Washington comeback... but the Celtics were in control for the entire game. Impressive knowing we've been running from behind for much of the series.

AB was due for a good game but wow, I didn't expect such a great one. Hopefully he can do the same in game 6 (or simply be more consistent, although his injury probably doesn't help). IT was a great facilitator and I thought Amir set the tone defensively so good move to start him.

Washington missed a lot of easy shots too so I guess homecourt advantage really paid off. Would be nice to close it out in DC but it probably will go to a game 7 considering how the series has shaked out.

Don't know if this was mentioned. But sometime in the 2nd half (late 3rd quarter or early 4th, not sure which), when Jae Crowder was really struggling. He had just shot a horrible air ball.  Several players came in right after to substitute. But Brad kept Jae, who looked like he expected to come out, in the ball game.  He seemed surprised that he wasn't. I sure was.  From that point on, he quickly scored some points, and it completely seemed to transform him.

That was really cool to see.

Awesome to see how mature and down-to-Earth Brown is already. He knows how good of a situation this is for him.
Nice find jp. TP for that. Should post this in its own thread. Its gonna get lost here
