Yup, it's time to book this series over. You can't let this LeBron Cavaliers team to claw back up from 0-2.

Momentum is on their end, and LBJ about to explode for 50 points in Game 5. I can see the Cavs winning two more. The Celtics did not play with a sense of urgency tonight.

We're not supposed to be here.  Our two best players are injured.  We were supposed to be gone two rounds ago.  Geez, we're playing with house money. And with Kyrie and Gordon, this series is over.  I'm grinning from ear to ear.  We're a powerhouse juggernaut in the making.  Whatever happens, happens. 

Put Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward on this team, we're waltzing to the Finals, and legitimately competing for the title. 

Kyrie 26
Hayward 28
Smart 24
Brown 21
Tatum 20

We're gold. No matter how this season ends, we are gold.

I'm not buying the "house money" excuse. The guys we have should be able to take down this cavs team. Their 3rd best player is 37 year old Kyle korver. If brown, Tatum, and horford are legit, we can take em down

Lebron and his minions have done their job: protect their home court. Now, if the Celtics lost in their own homecourt, I'd get worried. 2008 Celtics also lost their road games for majority of the playoffs.

I just don't see James allowing his team to lose another game in this series. I wish they would but I expect them to perform surgery on Boston Wednesday.

Not upset that they lost games 3 and 4...but I am at how they lost them. Really were not competitive.

I've got one thing to say about this series....before the series started, nobody said eliminating the Cavs was going to be easy. We're tied, going back home with home court advantage in the last 3 games.

Hell, before the playoffs started, there was some serious doubt as to whether we could beat Milwaukee, never mind Cleveland. House's money, house's money...

I can see the Cavs winning two more. I also can see the Celtics winning their two home games in a 7 game series.

This series is definitely not over. In fact, after watching home court protected through 4 games, I think this series is just starting.

In Games 3 and 4, three pointers by Tatum, Rozier, Morris, Brown, Smart, Baynes:

12 for 39 ... 30.77%


In Games 3 and 4, three pointers by Love, Hill, Smith, Korver, Green, Clarkson

21-49 ... 42.86%




Who believes this trend will continue in Games 5 and (potentially) 7, and who thinks this is a home/away split thing?




LeBron has been amazing and both teams at various times have made great plays and huge errors.

With that said, it really is as simple as: Who is hitting shots? 

The team whose supporting cast is hitting outside shots has been in almost total control of each game in the series, and so far home court has determined which team that is.
You’ll have to excuse my lengthiness—the reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

Unless of course we get Brothers.

If Brothers isn't there tonight in the Rockets-Warriors game, then it's pretty much a certainty he'll be there at TD Garden tomorrow  :(

Who's going to perform the surgery? Lebron already tried that in games 1 and 2 and it didn't work out for them.

They gave game 4 away, the Cavs had one good qtr and we did our part to seal the win by missing a ton of close shots.

James...much like game 2.

It's time to hit the panic button.

Game 7. Against the greatest player in the world. At the Garden.

What a nauseous feeling.

Boston's 2-0 series lead streak is now in danger.

NBA's Game 5 winners winning series 82% of the time is now being put to the test.

INTENSITY.
