But yeah, if we come out and lose Game 4 in pathetic fashion again, I'll start to really panic.

Hate to say it, but even the optimist in me has more confidence in Cleveland stealing a game @Boston than of Boston stealing a game @Cleveland. Call it the "Lebron Effect", but that's how I feel. I mean, road games are never easy, but it's not like their crowd is a hostile environment either (felt like they were playing in a library much of yesterday to be honest). Just stick to the game plan and we escape with a win on Monday night.

Last night's game was truly awful though. I had predicted Cleveland would win a desperation Game 3, but boy I didn't think they'd win by 30 points. Hell, it never even seemed like Boston went on any kind of run yesterday, which is baffling.

Anyways, Cleveland did what they had to, and did what many expected (I mean, if CLE were to win a game this series, it almost had to be Game 3), now it's our turn.

That said, the C's will have A TON of adjustments to make before Game 4, or it could be ugly again. It would be one thing to lose a close hard-fought game yesterday, but losing in that fashion just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I hope CBS is ripping into this team.

Also, have to PRAY we don't get Fosters/Brothers Monday (though I unfortunately think we will).

Lets see how Game 4 plays out, and go from there. GO C'S!!  8)

(I'll probably be out most of today, so if I'm not around much today, enjoy your Sundays y'all! Also think we all definitely need a small break after last night's horror show lol.)

to soon to panic.  Let's see how they play tonight and in game 5.

if they lay another egg tonight, there's some real issues Brad had better figure out with this team.  (if they win, well, no worries)

if they don't play at the top of their game in game 5 regardless of what they do in game 4, then worry.  That's the game they either need to put Cleveland away (being up 3-1) or ensure a game 7 at home (series tied 2-2).

Panic?  Worry?  Makes no sense, we are playing with house money.  They can lose tonight and even Game 5 and I'm not going to panic, just be a bit disappointed.

Agreed.  It feels like the Celts can't afford to lose a game at home in this series.

Panic is too strong of a word.  You best believe if we lose tonight this will be at best, a pick 'em series.  But I would not say we're in danger just yet.

I'm not even worried, let alone near panic. Celtics win tonight, guys.

Until the Celtics lose a home game, I feel no panic.




Plus, this team isn't suppose to be here.   No Irving.   No Hayward.   


Just unbelievable experience for the young Celtics. 



No panic.   Team is playing with house money. 

Knicks: Irving, Drummond, Marcus Morris, S. Muhammad, C. Lee, Sullinger, Hield, M. Chriss , V. Carter, T. Zeller, N. Cole, T. Prince, Livio Jean-Charles, Tyler Ulis, N. Collison

Yeah I'll freak out once the C's lose a home game.

Overall I'm just proud of this team and what they've done. I want the Finals trip too, but this season started out so badly and this team was been amazing all the way from when they almost won that night till the end.

I think losing at home would cause some concern...esp if the series is 3-2 Cleveland going into game 6 on the road.

Hold serve at home...esp in game 5

Yeah same. And honestly, I hate to sound pessimistic and I am looking way ahead, but even if we made the Finals, Golden State is going to overwhelm us anyways, so even if we lose this series, we can enjoy watching Lebron get swept  :P #BrightSpot
