Celts def should win tonight and the series

But 10.5 seems like a lot of pts

I assume the quick turnaround has something to do with it.

I’d expect less points given on Thursday but we’ll see.

The Pacers have struggled against two depleted teams. The C’s have been the best team in the NBA all year. I expect a C’s sweep. Pacers are frauds.

Siakim,Turner,and Haliburton can match the Cs top 3, The rest of the team , not so much. All 3 of them have to have their A games to even have a punchers chance.

I actually think the Pacers 6-10 are significantly better than Boston’s. At least until Porzingis gets back. Can’t see Sam or Kornet having much impact at all in this series, at least while games are competitive.

I’m a bit lower on Indiana’s top 5 than you.

Pacers are carving em up

Yeah I kind of forgot Zinger isn’t playing. If he’s out the Pacers probably take 2 off of the C’s.

They have no answer for Turner.  My concern is Indiana guards like ghosts for major stretches.

I'm genuinely surprised that Tatum and brown have made it so far this year without disappearing for an entire series.

I agree Indiana should have fouled after that ridiculous call but this is a disgrace.  Two absolutely inexcusable calls.

Combined with absurd officiating. 

But you cannot lose a game up 3, with the ball, under 9 secs to go.
