    When we play Maxi, we lose when we don’t play, and we win

    I thought Dallas might win it. Boston is due after all the attempts over the last 6-7 years. This is a similar Celtics lineup to the one that play the Cleveland Cavaliers with Lebron!

    I am a diehard hardcore Celtics fan but I do want some excitement. In fact, I’ve been a Celtics fan since Larry Bird’s rookie season when I first arrived in America. Ideally, Mavs win the next two in Dallas to give us some excitement. Celtics then close out the series in 6 by winning Games 5 and 6, and we finally get our 18th chip. What I positively cannot stand is deluded Lakers fans claiming they have 17 chips. No you don NOT. The ones in Minneapolis don’t count. Stop your deluded wishful thinking. The same deluded Lakers fans who claim LeBron is the GOAT despite the obvious superiority of MJ in terms of clutch genes and clutch performance. Not even close. Thank you.

    The best solution for the Mavs offense is more post ups for Luka. No one can guard him on the post he can abuse his defenders and punish them by getting in foul trouble. Also in that way, Boston will be force to double team him which leads to his team mates wide open.

    They can also do that with Gafford too. On game 2, he scored in the post whenever Tatum is guarding him.

    Last thing, Kyrie needs to wake up or else the series is over.

    Mavs in 6 🔥

    If you wanna beat the Mavs, take away their lob game, lock down Kyrie, and hunt Luka when driving on offense.

    Boston is the Best in sports . We have been for a while in all leagues. Pay homage.

    You need battle tested vets to win a chip. Dallas has no chance.

    You acting like the Celtics are weak without KP, they will do just fine without him as they did the past 3 series.

  13. @Quanyouhim

    June 12, 2024 at 9:21 am

    Luka body language was off the entire game hes clearly hurt Boston might win in 5 but since KP hurt this might go 7

  14. @SuburbanDMV

    Stop talking about 2016 Kyrie , this is 2024 & he’s still & will forever be a BUS RIDER!

    PJ Washington the second best player in the Mavs rn he not doing bad he doing his job

  16. @tombradyandme

    June 12, 2024 at 10:14 am

    Legler talks about game 3 being a breakout game for Kyrie but how about game 3 being a breakout game for Tatum especially with KP sidelined? A new individual on the Celts’ is going to step up in game 3 and it might be as well be JT.

    It’s hilarious to watch these bozos try and defend their absurdly wrong picks. Who would ever pick the Mavs to win the Finals? LOL my 9 year old nephew knows better it’s so obvious which team is better. And no Kyrie will not do anything because he’s totally shut down by D. White and Jrue. Celtics in 5

    JB told Draymond we would be ready and we will be playing with FORCE

    My Game 3 Prediction :
    Although I’m rooting for the Mavs, I believe the Celtics will be the winners.

    In reality, the CELTICS ARE AT A STRATOSPHERIC LEVEL compared to the Mavs. If the “Knicks” with Jalen Brunson (who is skilled at three-point shooting) couldn’t beat the Celtics, then the Mavs won’t be able to either.

    It’s thanks to Kyrie Irving’s arrival that the Mavs are in the finals, and it’s also because of Kyrie Irving that the Mavs will lose the NBA finals.

    For a win, the Mavs don’t need Kyrie Irving to be effective in dribbling but to rediscover his efficiency in three-point shooting.

    So, if you see a Mav or Kyrie Irving relying on dribbles or two-point baskets, it’s an indication that the Mavs will lose this match.

    Therefore, the real question isn’t who will win this match (that’s already obvious), but rather:
    Will Kyrie Irving regain his accuracy in three-point shooting?

    Of course, a Luka Dončić plus a skilled and dribbling Kyrie Irving (as he knows how to do), along with AN EXCELLENT MAVS DEFENSE based on REAL “man-to-man defense,” and by changing a few players from the Mavs, can beat the Celtics.
