GSW is 7/30 from 3. Pretend the Poole one was one of the dozen good looks they missed earlier and move on.

On those shot clock +3-4 seconds final possessions they are better off just staring at the shot clock and firing it up at 1 than what they tend to do and did there.

Tatum was clearly fouled but regardless just an awful last possession you HAVE TO GUARANTEE THE LAST SHOT. As always they shot too early and then nobody played defense.

Terrible, and GS gets the ball. Play a great quarter then give up the final possession.
How can you guarantee the last shot when there is still time left on the clock when the 24 expires?

They’re going to win this.

I mean, they basically fucked him in both ears while doubling him.
He got fouled for sure. He also looked like he made the decision that he was 100% getting that last shot, dribbling aimlessly, only to leave Brown with a grenade

I’d amend this to you either have to get the last shot or run real offense. Doing neither is unacceptable.

Bench points through three quarters: Golden State 22, Boston 4.
I don't care one bit who scores the points. If the bench players contribute in some way that's good. If Tatum and Brown and Smart score all the points and Boston finishes with more than GS...that's all I care about.

Lucky shot, but the Celtics just played that so lackadaisically.... It's incredible how they don't defend til the horn. I know that's like a 10% shot there but still. You just can't stop playing D.

Still...down one after being down a dozen. They're right there.
You have to play loose on that. It's a low percentage shot. 3 free throws with zero on the clock would suck.

Remember that 3 points the refs gifted golden state? Good thing that doesn’t matter now
