Is there any way to get the 98.5 feed for out-of-market fans? I paid for League Pass all year, but the radio feeds went away for the postseason. The 98.5 website and app cut off coverage right around tip off. I'd rather listen to friendly voices for this. Any guidance would be great.

Breen is maybe my least favorite PBP announcer in all of sports and hearing him call a Heat victory today would be a salt mine in the wound. Jones is fine and glad to hear he is decent irl too.

As far as I am concerned, things are already looking up.

Going to add this here. From my perspective, this team has already delivered on the preaseason promises. They are a contender and appear to be set up well for the future (though we all know that fortunes can change on a dime in the NBA). Their front office and coaching staff appear to be in a good place too. For better or worse, Tatum is now widely considered a top X player and the C's a top franchise in the league. As many of us have noted, for this to happen this season after their start has made adjusting to what they have done almost impossible in real time. I am not sure I've fully processed how the Celtics have played these past few months. But here they are and while it was entirely unexpected just a few short months ago, it makes sense in front of me. They are really good and deserve to be here.

That said, I am rooting for a win more than oxygen but in the event they don't get it done, I am pretty bullish on this team's future. Regardless of outcome, this season turned from a tire fire into an unmitigated success. If this is where it ends, no tears from me even though I look forward to each game like its the best gift ever - I love this team.

YRMV.
This is where I am. This is *amazing* where they are tonight. One game to go to the Finals? How much fun is that? I utterly love this team and what they've become and am so grateful the journey wherever it might end. Needless to say, *so* much better if it doesn't end tonight. LFG!

I, for one, am tired of losing to the Heat.. every iteration of them. I’m sure all here share the sentiment. This Heat team is the least impressive of all of them.. I’ll be disappointed if the C”s lose because it means the Celts didn’t play their best or even second or third best game.

This will be an epic win if they pull it off. I think the Cs are the better team, but one game in Miami with a vet group is tough.
Smart doesn;t get hurt it is over already, but all things considered this will be great.

This. In 2012, we were an old team and they were stars in their prime. That sucked but whatever. In the bubble, we were injured and still not quite there yet. But now? Shit, we’re here. Our stars are mostly mature and, quite frankly, we’re just better. There is nothing remarkable about this Heat team. Their coach is good. Their best player is very good. They have some good role players. But this is a beatable team that just isn’t that great.

If the Celtics lose tonight, it better be that the shots just didn’t fall. No sloppiness, no loss of focus, no stupid crap. Give the Heat your best and make them beat it.

Hang on tightly, let go lightly.

Indeed. Sometimes the shots just don't go in, but if the Celtics lose because they had 20+ turnovers, it's gonna be a long summer.

TuneIn radio has a free 7-day trial of their premium service. Might be worth a try.

Yup. And often.

Marcus and Rob will both start without any minutes restrictions, per Coach Udoka.
Hopefully they told Rob to limit it to one block attempt and one board per possession. It seems like he doesn't respond well to multiple up and downs in short amounts of time. Really need him in the second half tonight unless something crazy happens.

It's the offensive glass almost as much as the turnovers that have killed them. Someone needs to lay Tucker the fuck out (that's a tough order given how rotund he is). If that doesn't work, cheap shot that fucker. You can't let him at his size dominate the offensive glass.

click mute on your TV and cue up Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for better commentary. Just hope it doesn't end on Brain Damage

Regardless of what happens tonight, as always it has been a pleasure to ride this roller coaster of a season with all of you.

I don't want to get off quite yet. Harm the Heat!

I successfully reach about quarter to 8 of each of these game days before getting irrationally pissed off that the game hasn’t started. LFG!

I’m just pacing around my patio while grilling. They can’t lose this. Legacy defining game for Tatum/Brown. Might be last chance for Al. Can’t stomach Miami winning this. It’s all there for us. Fucking take it.

Bill Parcells once said that the desperate team usually wins.

Hopefully that's the Celtics.

I'm going to be upset at Ime if they don't attack Herro every possession.
