I'm listening to Dray and Scal and about every talking head the sports world can ask, and everyone is saying, "it's all over."
It's gonna be the Warriors and Celtics. While everyone is plotting and planning what each team has to do to win the series.
"Boston is bigger."
"The Warriors shoot better and have been there before."
"The Celtics are younger with younger legs and they defend better."
On and on the talk goes. I just hope the young Celtics aren't listening. Cause this can go sideways really quickly. Our young Celtics would become poster-children for any team choking. And it would effect them for years to come.
Please coaching staff, be aware of this.
You are right. I hate all this talk too. Even on this blog, where people should know better, there are multiple threads or posts analyzing the GSW-BOS match up already. STOP, there is plenty of time for that later.
I acknowledge that the Celtics are in a very good position. It is on a silver platter for them. But that is going to seem far in the past if we start the game 1-9 with 5 turnovers or something like that while the Heat run off 4 or 5 straight 3s.
I really believe that the Celtics players, coaches, management, trainers, ball boys, everyone, understand this too but as a team, they can't even let those thought get in their heads for even a second. Don't even crack the door. The Heat are going to be desperate and they going to pounce if we let down even 1% from how we can play. Don't let that happen.
