    why doesn’t anyone talk about how the Celtics beat hurt teams? technically, the Nets were without Simmons, Bucks without Middleton, and Heat lost Herro game 3 or 4. Not a fan of either team, just stating facts. Had they beaten those teams at full strength, it would be a different story. Warriors in 5

    Celtics defence is’nt a whole lot better than GS, but the warriors offense>> cooks the celtics.

    Doesn’t matter what your D is when you can’t score. All because you’d rather run your offense through Tatum and Smart. Your worse shooter’s, I’d be pissed if I was Brown on this team.

    As Warriors fan, I though this match up is really balanced and equal. It could go both either way, like really a 50:50 chance for each team to win it all. But as a Warriors fan, my confident take is Warriors in 6 (If Curry somehow goes berserk and unstoppable) and my realistic take is either Celtics in 7 or Warriors in 7 (With their ups and downs each games). Either way, this is gonna be interesting.

    perk all season long says he picks suns over warriors because warriors’ new faces are lack of experience. lol

    Thus team productivity base on how many game 7 they gone through?? It’s about consistency on how they play. KP why do you hate warriors so much?

    Offensively Boston hasn’t played no one like GS in the playoffs. They played great players but not great teams. If the Bucks didn’t lose Middleton. We would be watching GS vs Bucks. But we not GS in 6

    Steph is known to get unlucky on half of his games. Celtics in 6.

    I doubt Boston even wins a game

    Why is everyone forgetting that warriors had #1 defense before Draymond got injured???

    Warriors will win. Can’t call the games but Steph will get finals mvp. I hope you guys keep pushing the narrative on Smart and Curry. LeBron will be in attendance to support Steph because they saying LeBron won a ring he didn’t deserve. Ohio will be in the building. Like Jeezy say, Keep going

    Are the celtics defense that good or have they gone up against an iso heavy team with no wings in the first round. A defensive minded team without their best half court offensive player and a lack of wing depth in the second round (took them 7 games btw) . And finally have they gone up against a crippled miami team with zero half court offense who’s superstar was injured and was still one shot away from eliminating them. They are a good team but overrating their defense and especially their offense which still is the tatum and brown iso show is not the analysis people are looking for

    We tend to sleep on defensive minded teams with two wings who are pure hoopers & can get 25-30 in their sleep…it’s not gonna be a cakewalk for golden state💯

    Y’all forgetting Golden State’s defense ain’t that shabby too.

    We definitely getting 7 games. I’m a little skeptical about the Celtics defense slowin’ down the Warrior’s shooters. They shoot off ball and screens. Once that ball hit their fingertips from a pass its going in the net. All u gonna hear 👂🏾 is “SWISH” all series.

    They’re acting like the Celtics beat healthy teams as well starting in the semis. The Bucks don’t have their 2nd best player (can even consider him their best 1 on 1 offensive player) the whole series in Middleton. Herro, their 2nd best offensive player, didn’t play Games 4 to 6. And these series went 7 games.

    celtics would of lost if Middleton played, perkins doesn’t know what he’s talking about, simple, golden state is winning doesn’t matter if in 6 or 7

    first the celtics shut down a mid range super team , then a team with an athletic freak, then a god that plays team ball now they have to play the 3 point team
