Let's stay on the offensive---and this time, win the third quarter as well! Attack the rim on offense, let Tatum and Brown carry the load and when in doubt, seek out Grayson Allen's man. Body up Giannis on defense---and slide to draw at least two charges against him. Be aggressive on the boards, winning with numbers and hustle even when we go with the small lineup. Don't let the officials get in the way of what we're aiming for, and don't be afraid to flop to achieve overall justice.

This is the game we take control; we have the series lead in our sights---let's get it done!

sorry if I missed this somewhere, but is TL definitely playing tonight? Hope he does indeed have a big game if he is playing, as Saints Rest suggested.

So funny how when the series started, I was singing the chorus of "it's tough to hate the Bucks (except Grayson Allen). They're well-coached by a guy who seems like a good dude, have good players (except Grayson Allen) that play well together, and range from non-descript to likeable to very likeable (except Grayson Allen)."

But here we are, a week later, and I so want to see the Bucks suffer. Giannis is a one-man wrecking crew -- for ill as well as for good -- and I can't stand seeing him plow through the Celtics with no apparent concern for fouls or anybody's health. And Al and Jaylen are sick of it, so so am I. Also starting to get sick of Bobby Portis, not sure why.

Bucks suck! (Especially Grayson Allen)

The late Bob Lanier was a great player who was, throughout my youth, regarded as one of those "great players on bad team who would surely be the missing piece for a good team." So he got traded from Detroit to Milwaukee in 1980 and proceeded to not win a title in his 5 years there, either. So pay appropriate homage, Bucks, and lose tonight.

Nicely done to whomever did that for us - thank you. Anna Horford hype is the best hype!

A win tonight likely won't change any big picture narratives but it gets the Cs closer to at least another series. More Celtics basketball is always good for me. So win, even if your legacy is safe or irredeemable.

1) As Heinsohn says on that clip that famous hit on Rambis was relatively mild compared to the way players were getting taken out in the Celtics-Knicks series.

2) That Anna Horford clip is spectacular.

3) Two of the greatest playoff games I’ve ever seen were Bucks-Celts. Game 6 of the 1974 Finals and Game 4, must have been, of the 1987 ECSF. Close, tense. Wins by the road team.
But sorry there’s no instant classic tonight, just a blowout by the home team.
