Tatum has passed up several threes this quarter now. Oddly been his one strength in the series. Wiggins completely dominated him.

Three TOs and Tatum getting his shot blocked, in the last four minutes, isn’t a prescription for a stirring comeback.

Time for one last push

I’m sure the media will be all over Tatum for this one. Then when he walks to Miami or LA in 2 years and starts winning championships at age 26, everyone here is going to wonder why we can’t keep players in Boston.

This game is gonna dog Tatum for a while. That sucks, he had a great season and playoffs.
Agreed. Tatum is the alpha of this team; but he definitely came up short this series. Maybe it’s the shoulder. Maybe it’s the awkward Kobe hero ball.
I would love if Stevens somehow got a consistent scorer like Bradley Beal and maybe move on from Jaylen.

Crazy but the defense is going to hold GS below their season average again, despite 22 turnovers by the offense. As frustrating as the D has been at times tonight, it’s once again the offense that’s killing them.

I feel bad for Tatum. He’s probably the biggest reason we made it to within two games of a title, but all people will remember and talk about is his poor play in the finals.

They had a chance here GS didn’t do much this half. The whistle on TL’s clean block at a 10 point deficit really sucked but there were many many other chances and they either whiffed on layups or coasted on D. Marcus alone has been responsible for several breakdowns by switching off Curry and then not helping at all. After Brown hit that big corner three he was in no man’s land allowing an open Wiggins three for no reason. Just lots of mistakes like that tonight.

It’s crazy they made it this far taking such shit care of the ball all the way through.

That’s officially it. Start the offseason thread. It’s sucks, I’m having one of the worst days of my life and could’ve used something good.

Just not crisp enough tonight—-so many kisses in paint, so many turnovers. So many dumb offensive boards.

a lot of bad calls doesn’t change the above. GS just executed better these last three games.

No worries, at least we have a first round draft pick coming up.
They have Finals cred, a great coach, great core, moveable contracts, trade exceptions, and minutes available. The team will likely be better next year and is built to dominate the regular season when defenses are coasting.

Did Jaylen run over your dog or something?

I mean, it's difficult to say. Pain could absolutely affect someone's decision making.

We can agree that we're not watching the same Tatum this series, right?
Yeah, but maybe it’s syphilis. That can affect cognitive ability.

You want to move on from Jaylen? When did you change your mind?
