    Everyone saying that Boston should win this or they choked. Everyone also saying the Mavs are going to win this series. Boston has a 14-2 playoff record this postseason.

    Despite missing 29 threes, the Celtics are a big problem for the Mavs . Their team chemistry is so beautiful to watch!!

    Oh, that’s pathetic State Farm felt like they had to give corporate charity by hiring for their commercial a WNBA player less than 0.1% of the U.S. population “might” have heard of. LOL!

    Luka scores 1st then jogs down court with his head down…He didn’t even see Jrue run right past him for an easy basket from a D White pass…How in the world 😂

    I’m a Luka hater😂💯 There isn’t a game in this playoffs where he didn’t bring it, he’s showed up for this team. Win or loss he’s proved me wrong this whole season💯 And why am I just now realizing he wears a weird ass number😂😂

    Luks is great… but soft as baby cheeks. He be putting his hands up whining for a foul call while the ball is still getting stripped out of his hands. Bruh fight for the ball before you pout. Smh

    Can we stop the lunacy now? Greatest offensive duo of all time my ass. Neither of those two even get the Splash Bros treatment where every abled body are thrown at them and still make shots, making teammates open left and right at the same time.

    I question some of the the ref calls on this one. One could assume that one team appeared to be favored.
