    Warriors were one of the worst teams at turning the ball over. I think the Celtics or Heat would give them some problems.

      @Celtics Bus Driver that’s true but the Celtics have very active hands on defense. All that motion and action is fantastic basketball but the Celtics are great at intercepting passes and getting blocks and deflections. I hope it’s Celtics warriors I think that’s a great matchup

      @Xepherina Memphis does not have the same combined experience of the Celtics and lost Ja. They won two games. I think Celtics would give them problems considering there is no weak link on the Celtics starting roster defence wise

      @Xepherina Boston is better than the Grizz and the Grizz lost Ja…try asgain

    robert williams lll was the underlying catalyst in Boston’s shamrocking blowout win in game 4. im sure the celtics will get out the mud this series and advance

    Why Stephen A look so mad when JJ said he was glad he and Perk agreed?

    It’s the heat
    ….. Don’t over react what do heat have a star not super star a star in butler and some good pieces…. They don’t have a superstar or a second star….

    • ARCANE

      The heat are a defensive superteam

    GSW-BOS finals. Let’s goo. Best offense vs best defense. I’ve been hype for that.

  11. Master The Dream

    May 24, 2022 at 11:47 am

    Perk has a point but on this game I agree with Stephen A. Miami was just not wanting to shoot. I have never seen so many open mid range shots that were not taken and everyone just kept passing until the last one missed. I turned off the game in the 3rd

  12. Trevon B

    May 24, 2022 at 11:50 am

    Miami did not want it the dub yesterday and it was showing they weren’t nearly as confident as they were game 3.

    May 24, 2022 at 11:57 am

    actually agree with SA

  14. John Popovich

    Man, its real easy saying these team have a championship caliber anything, when theyre in the conference finals…….

  15. d c

    May 24, 2022 at 12:44 pm

    They have championship defense but they’ve been blasted 4 times this postseason🤦🏽‍♂️

    • MS 17

      May 24, 2022 at 9:47 pm

      and all those losses pretty much had vital players not playing

  16. kalem rhodriguez

    May 24, 2022 at 1:28 pm

    Perk is such a prisoner of the moment type of analyst, like when he called Middleton the Batman on the Milwaukee Bucks just because he had some 4th quarters on Hawks in the playoffs last year

    • Preston Murphy

      May 24, 2022 at 1:42 pm

      yeah i don’t take him or stephen a serious like as a heat fan boston defense is phenomenal but i don’t expect the starters to combine for 18 next game if they do it again then the series is over

    • Battousai the king slayer

      May 24, 2022 at 2:24 pm

      ? The bucks definitely missed Middleton last series if they had him who knows if Boston would have won

  17. kalem rhodriguez

    May 24, 2022 at 1:31 pm

    My Heat was just obviously comfortable going back home 2-2, yeah the Celtics was great but Stephen A is right this was more about Miami terrible play

    • MS 17

      May 24, 2022 at 9:50 pm

      you know celtics didnt shoot that great at all and they still blew them out by 20. Thats pretty telling

  18. Ahmed Awad

    May 24, 2022 at 1:57 pm

    Yo I LOVE Perk coming here on first take to roast Stephen A LMAOOOOOOOO.

  19. Vietizy

    May 24, 2022 at 2:14 pm

    The Heat were sorry. No excuses. BUT, the Heat ain’t in the Mavs position. The series is TIED (regardless of the “quarter talk”) and Miami has homecourt 🤔

    • MS 17

      May 24, 2022 at 9:49 pm

      miami doesnt look like a championhsip team

  20. Taty Siqueira

    May 24, 2022 at 2:45 pm

    I want to know why no one talks about the fact that 3 of these starts 5 are injured and wouldn’t play yesterday if it wasn’t such an important game.

    • Teddi Kane

      May 25, 2022 at 7:31 pm

      That’s just a excuse because the Celtics are injured as well. Marcus smart, JB and JT been playing through injuries this whole post season. And Robert Williams been in and out of the lineup as well. If the Celtics were healthy, this series would have been a sweep.

  21. Matthew 2700

    May 24, 2022 at 2:59 pm

    I wanna see them defend golden state 😂😂😂

  22. Matthew 2700

    May 24, 2022 at 2:59 pm

    Last time Celtics made the finals was 2009? Or 2010

    • Wilson Benjamin

      May 24, 2022 at 11:53 pm

      2010

  23. Matthew 2700

    May 24, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    Watch heat win game 5 tomorrow and they gonna change the mind again saying Celtics are in trouble 😂😂😂

    • SALIMdagod aka Harry Allen

      May 25, 2022 at 11:17 am

      To be fair the way the series is going he won’t be wrong.. game 5 is crucial for both teams but more for the Celtics because Miami has homecourt.. one of them need a back to back win

  24. Matthew 2700

    May 24, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    Heat got home come advance game 5 and 7 gonna be in Miami bruh

  25. aa

    May 24, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Would like to see Jimmy finally get his ring, but Celtics clicking. Their path to finals is paved. Wont be a sweep, but Gsw wont stand chance against the Celtics.

    • Renee Smith

      May 25, 2022 at 10:37 am

      That’s false. The Celtics haven’t even won this series yet. If Robert Williams can’t play, they won’t even win this series.
