Wow. It's hard to believe how wretched the Bucks three-point shooting was. 12%. Not having Middleton really, really hurt.

When I said earlier I didn’t know if Grant was playable “right now” what I meant was in that exact particular moment when he wasn’t busy helping the C’s take down the champs.

To have stolen this without TL is huge. What a team effort. Feel really good that Grant and PP both got hot too asthey will be needed. White hit some big ones too. At the end of the3rd to go up 15 was a quietly huge shot. Never was close after that.

A lot of us complained about the GA reffing and more ( I am far from innocent, I rant a lot without a doubt) but these guys (kids) fucking fought trough, played their game, made their shots. What a sweet fucking win for them. Grant and PP showing up, JB and JT going off for a bit in the the 3rd. And FUCKING average AL playing like he is 25 all series. I guess Smart was okay too.

I am excite

The defense really got to Giannis late. Some absolutely wild shots that never had a chance while he was trying to draw whistles I guess.

Al consistently immense on D, and they team rebounded much better.

Perimeter D stayed aggressive and never yielded the clean looks. Bucks are a different team when Lopez/Portis/Allen/Patty have to put it on the floor.

Celtics were the better team in 6 of the 7 games. Bucks willed themselves to two extra wins but Celtics clearly the better team with Middleton out. Glad they dominated the last 3 quarters and showed it.

He was truly awful in the second half. A bunch of wild shots, turnovers, missed layups, jacked up a couple bad threes. The story is going to be Milwaukee’s wretched three point shooting, but the best player in the world was terrible when it mattered the most.

Heat are very good and disciplined and well coached. I love the way they play.

It should be a great series.
Perimeter vigilance is crucial but I do think the Celtics will be very happy to see a size advantage, though Bam is obviously generally a problem.

Plus the C's are going to have to win 4 out of 6, because Tuesday is an archetypal schedule loss.
