Ben Simmons thinks the Heat were more physical than the Celtics.

We'll see whose more physical when a team is up 3-0 lol.

That doesn't say much good about Ben Simmons' performance in game 2 then, does it?  Less physical but still only able to manage 1 point while looking like he was ready to crap the bed in a bunch of Philly's halfcourt sets.

Listen...if Philly canít win today...at home...then they flat out are overwhelmed and will be swept. I expect we see everything they have and then some. Lots of off balanced threes falling.

Game threes on the road for teams up 2-0 are the hardest to win in the series.

All the pressure is on the sixers which is exactly what they donít need. Cís only have to win one in philly.

We didn't manage to win a road game against the Bucks. Let's see if this team can finally learn how to win on the road in the playoffs.

They had game 4 in Milwaukee. A couple bad calls went against us late that swung points in their favor.

Had we had Smart in the game, we win it and probably donít even go back to Milwaukee again in game 6.

The main reporter for Philly is a girl named Jess that seems like she started watching the sport 2 years ago. Yet they just asked her expert opinion about the game. It's unreal how unqualified some of these people are yet they get shoved in our face bc they are semi cute and can name players.

Hot take by Pierce in the pre-game: Brad Stevens is the best coach in the NBA today.

While I think he could have done a better job articulating his point, it is great to see PP give the Stevens and the Cs some love.

Iíll believe the Celtics can win a road game when I see it.  I fear we go back 2-2 just like Milwaukee, just like Washington last year.

What does more or less physical have to do with the effectiveness of the defense?  He might be right but there is no question that our defense has been more effective on him.
