Not confident in the teamís ability to get it done but hereís to hoping! If we lose, I hope itís by single digits. The most likely outcome, imo is around a 15-point loss. But stealing one at the Q would be sweet!!!

Not going to lie, I'm feeling really nervous about this game. I have faith the C's will play better than they did in Game 3, but it still just feels like Cleveland may win this by 10-15 points at the Q. Road games are never easy. Either way, we're going to have to pull out a full 48-minute effort and can't afford to have large stretches of lackluster play (meaning no scoring and/or unable to stop Cleveland from scoring every trip down). Also, keep driving and quit settling for long 2's every time down. That will put Cleveland's defense on their heels, and it can also help generate open look 3's for us which hopefully we can knock down at a good rate tonight.

Morris HAS to have a better all-around game tonight, both on defense and on offense. Quit settling on iso-shots and keep the ball moving. If Morris has another mediocre game, we're doomed. Would be nice if Scary Terry could become scary again in a road game. Still waiting for that "break out" road game from Terry.

We're also going to have to just suck it up and deal with the refs (Foster). Unfortunately it may mean someone (or multiple players) get in foul trouble early in the game. Can't let that rattle us, and got to start off faster. If we fall behind by double digits early, it'll be a long night again. If Jaylen is allowed to play aggressive and play with confidence like in Games 1 and 2, we got a good shot. May need 20+ points from Tatum tonight too. Hope this team proves me wrong and steals one at the Q!

LETS GO C'S!!  8)

Like pretty much everyone else here...really unsettled about tonight. I can see a Cleveland win more than a Boston win. I hope I am wrong..

After losing by 30 and getting beat in nearly all facets, difficult to garner much hope. My preservation instincts kicking in, preparing for the worst.

Donít mind losing, just donít want another whipping. That would be demoralizing and tough to shake come Wednesday.

Biggest concern besides Lebron is not having a counter to Thompson covering Horford.

I feel better about tonight than I did on Sat. It's a bad combo of playing game 3 on the rd against a desperate team.

They just need to settle down and take good, smart shots.

Celts by 8. 

Book it.

How we come back from getting our first real whipping since Game 3 Milwaukee is going to say a lot about this team and how ready they are to genuinely contend.  My hope is we play well enough to at least have a chance to win.  Then I hope like hell we grab that chance and run with it.  Go Celtics!!!

Heart says we win a close one, head says we lose by 8-14 points. 
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

You may want to rethink your choice of words there.

These are the refs tonight. Looks like a tied series.

So essentially this?
