Except for the last 7 minutes of the first quarter, this game was even if not slightly in Boston's favor.

I mean it is kind of a chicken and the egg thing.  Do we play sooo much worse on the road at Clev, or do the Cavs role players play that much better at home.  Hill, Smith, Nance were doorstops in games 1 and 2.  Hopefully they go back to that in game 5.

The guy that seems like he has changed the series is Tristan Thompson.  He is just a celtic killer with the off rebounding, def plays, garbage offense.  13 points and 12 boards for him tonight.  I don't see WHY we don't bring Baynes in to counter him?  Horford for whatever reason has trouble with TT on him. 

For game 5, bring Baynes in to start.  Let Brown start on Lebron (especially at home he will do better on D against him).  Let Morris and smart come in early as the first two off the bench (Rozier and Tatum to the bench).  Stay big in the lane.  Stay attached to their other guys and don't let them have easy shots.  Lebron is going to score 40 on whomever guards him, it almost doesn't matter.  Stop the other guys from beating us like we did in games 1 and 2.

Those were a rough 7 tho

Game 6 is a must win game if you ask me

Especially if this squad is serious about having a chance to win it all

Next round (if it happens) ...Celts will not have home court adv
