Celtics are getting a few stops and rebounds, but aren't converting them into points. Blown opportunity on that long pass from Tatum to Brown. Good idea wanting to run, but a bit too much mustard on the pass. Baynes is putting in a great effort on the boards though.

Celtics are throwing this game away with turnovers and bad shots. There goes the lead.

Took care of the ball the whole first half, completely different story in the second.

This could end ugly.

Not a good quarter at all for the Celtics. They really needed to have the lead going in to the fourth, I feel. In a close game, I favour the team with the future Hall of Famer who can create for himself.

Who's wins out in the 4th... a 3 point lead for the Cavs.

Not a well played game.

He took the most field goals in the 3rd for the Celtics. He's been on a long leash all year, and it continues.

Brad needs to reel him in and get Tatum, and Rozier more involved, same with Horford.

6 for 36 threes in the first half, with a lot of good looks. A lot of good looks by both teams that didn't fall all night.

Even with plenty of time left, it's feeling like the Celtics have let the game slip through their fingers. Currently shooting 35% from the field, 17% from three-point range. Looks like LeBron is going to finish it off. Every run the Celtics have had has quickly fizzled.

Every good play by the Celtics is followed by a couple of bad ones. The offense is still incredibly sluggish.

Tatum extremely smart with shot selection but I'd like to see him bit more aggressive in shot taking instead of picking up ticky tack fouls by being needlessly aggressive defending LBJ.

2 timeouts in a row? Giving LBJ some rest before going into end game mode?

I can't believe how many open shots the Celtics missed in this game. I've never seen anything like it...

Great season by the young squad... but we could have had this damn game. NBA players missing completely wide open shots all over the floor.

It was a great effort, a great season despite the setbacks, and the Celtics have a bright future. This was a winnable game though, and they let it slip. Motivation moving forward, though.

Time and time after, LeThanos made the key winning plays look so easy in crucial elimination game. Whatever it takes!

Oh one more thing.

A special FUCK YOU to Jeff Green, for his 19 points and 8 boards tonight. Fuck you for not doing more of that when you were playing for Boston.

So one more time, fuck you Jeff Green.

LeBron's performance this game has to be one of the best of his career. Especially with his teammates not hitting shit in the first half, he trusted them at the end and still made the right plays to find them at the end. Jeff Green was huge. Thompson made a couple good plays at the end as well. What a series. I hope tomorrow's game 7 will come down to the wire like this.

Give credit where credit is due, Green, Thompson, Hill and even JR played well. JR may have missed his shots, but he played great D, Hill had +27 even posting a mediocre statline. The Boston Celtics didn't forget how to play basketball, the Cavs adjusted and played them close.
