Brad is a genius for having traded for White.. the Smart-White combo was so damn fun to watch today


TrumaineMichaels

When smart threw white the lob from half court


bungerman

not sure if that or tatum's behind the back half court pass was better


GrayBox1313

To be fair he thought he was in space jam for a minute


Undercoverbrother007

To be fair, Smart shouldve been in Space Jam and not lebron


YO-WAKE-UP

😂😂😂


seasoned-veteran

At 60mph to the high corner of the backboard

How the hell did the 76ers contain this man?


captaincumsock69

He was grazing

Flopping that got Derrick in foul trouble

Fuck it… Let’s just break history

It has to start somewhere, it has to start sometime. What better place than here, what better time than now?

From the city that brought you "Four Days in October" and "28-3" comes the next installment of The Greatest Comeback Ever (TM).


grahampapa

Actually chuckled at the (TM). I guess Boston sports fans have had it pretty good in the last twenty years


withrootsabove

Don’t forget the Bruins installment “4-1”.


1337speak

We not the standard team down 3-0. Back against the wall Celtics are the best.


ThanosIsDoomfist

We already broke history tonight since we won despite a Charles Barkley guarantee


MPLooza

Joe outcoached Marc Davis and the Chuck curse in the same night


ThanosIsDoomfist

No fr about the Marc Davis thing. We almost never win with him officiating lmao


MPLooza

I think it's now 3-9 at home in the past two playoffs including tonight


TheMikeMarsters

#WE ARE NOW BILL RUSSELL AMOUNT OF WINS FROM BANNER 18! LET’S DO IT FOR BILL!


Jordanwolf98

We’ve been in the position we’re in now twice before too. Had to go into Milwaukee and Philly down 3-2 and won both of those series. Gotta take it one game at a time


Canoobie

All previous games are in the past and you can only play from the position you are currently in. We’ve been in this position before many times and got it done… Lets go C’s!!!!

Thank you


irisheyes9302

YES PLEASE


InnerWrathChild

The Sox did. So can the Celtics.


realfakedoors000

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED DERRICK WHITE


jtiss

LET HIM ROAM


gonzofish

THE BUFFALO HERD YA


1337speak

*BUFFALO ROAMING INTENSIFIES*


1337speak

Hear me and rejoice! You Miami Heat have had the privilege of being saved by The Great Forehead. You may think this is suffering. No... it is salvation. The universal scales tip toward balance because of your sacrifice. Smile... for even in death, you have become children of Derrick White.


xroastbeef

"The 3 point line is closed today" \~ Jimmy Butler or something


wTI8SQEHbo

I have seen him roaming amongst the plains. He is majestic and will live forever in our hearts.


bubsiboo

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED BUFFALO WORSHIP

HERD MENTALITY

THERE SHOULD BE A SECTION AT THE GARDEN THAT IS THE BUFFALO HERD

LegalConsequence7960

Consider him considered

#WE’RE ON TO GAME 6.


nrj6490

Chuck just said it best, we haven’t done anything yet, they’ve just given themselves an opportunity. Now they have to keep performing.


1337speak

I'm all in, I'm a fucking believer.


JBD04

Being a doomer is boring and sad anyways


[deleted]

BELIEVE!


[deleted]

One game at a time


jtiss

We been down 3-2 before


Jordanwolf98

Going on the road too


[deleted]

We love elimination game 6’s on the road baby


Wayne_Spooney

Tatum’s time


yesimthatonedude

These is facts


BradWonder

Yeah the 3-0 is irrelevant at this point. I'm looking at it as 1 game left in each building.


1337speak

One quarter at a time too. God I even got nervous at the end there lmao, asshole clenched.


TheMaximumUnicorn

LOL same. We were up 10 with like 2 minutes left and it crossed my mind how horrendous it would feel if the bench warmers somehow managed to throw the game.


1337speak

Thank God for Sam Howitzer


MPLooza

That Hauser three might have quietly saved the season. Saved me from developing heart arryhthmia too


Ok_Seaweed_9452

Yah bench warmer didnt play defense, that is why there's a slight worry there but once Sam Howitzer made that three i know game is over


seasoned-veteran

The Hauser 35 footer finally settled it


imAfunguy2

Hey I think if we win game 6 and game 7 we might actually make it to the finals


[deleted]

Big if true


smart_celtics

Big if.

HAVE A LITTLE FUCKING FAITH IN YOUR TEAM CELTICS IN 7 ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE JOE MAZZULLA CAN APPARENTLY ACTUALLY COACH


[deleted]

[удалено]


a_stoned_goat

He has taken more timeouts in the last two games than he has all year


Infamous_Chapter8585

Best Stat so far


Pryme_Tyme_Playa

Our scrub unit was stressing me out a little bit 😂😂


warriorssoccer2

For real. Taking early shots and giving away easy baskets.


acfox13

Cut it to ten and I was sweating


[deleted]

Lead got down to 10 and i yelled at the Hauser shot lmao


holographoc

Gave me Carson Edwards/ Tremont Waters flashbacks.


deaseb

Brogdon about to show up with a bloody arm sleeve to Game 6


Plane-Ad-3973

Yo I’m ready for the bloody sleeve game


timeknife91

Best defense, most energy and most heart I’ve seen from this team in a while 💚💚LFG Celtics in 7 ☘️


[deleted]

2004 Red Sox vibes rn


Nepiton

Need a bloody sock game


timeknife91

Brogdon back on the court for game 6 might give similar vibes


VortexCow

MIAMI COULD NOT CONTAIN THE BUFFALOOOOOOO


DaJorgenJag

Joe. WHERE HAS THIS COACHING BEEN ALL POSTSEASON? I've been a Mazzula defender for sure but damn like these last two games he's been absolutely brilliant. I don't get what happened in the first 3 games.


Nepiton

His coaching in elimination games has been next level good


doubledippedchipp

He fits right in. Absolute mid until absolutely necessary… then top tier lol


smart_celtics

He coached a really good Philly series after the first game.


bsend

Big win. Gotta bring the mentality to Game 6


rockmon94

that was ‘08 celtics level defense

UncleMeathands

Better stretch it out tomorrow, you know what you have to do on Saturday.


TheMaximumUnicorn

I don't care if they have to lay down on the thing and roll, they better be on that damn treadmill on Saturday!!!


RubberedDucky

Lol I also had crazy workout energy during this game. Heart rate was too high not to utilize it!!!


Future-Turtle

Rest up tomorrow.


Bosox7704

Thank you for your service.


Organic_Climate_7585

I like that stat that we’ve won 4 of the last 5 playoff games in Miami


HolyTythinEar

Let’s make it 5 out of 6


timeknife91

SAME


RLR111120

Of course SVG tries to flip it saying that the same applies to them


bailey_benz

WHY NOT US?

I swear these foos have a back against the wall fetish

#I TOLD YOU IM FROM THE FUTURE!! CELTICS IN 7!!!


HailKyrie

Schill on the mound Saturday. **Let’s. Ride.**


Kyljani

Anything can happen game 7


Future-Turtle

We could have Shaughnessy out there.


AkiraleTorimaki

Let’s just get every single member of the 2004 Red Sox that we can on the bleachers…


Organic_Climate_7585

We’re one of only 12 teams to make it this far after being down 0-3. Let’s make history Cs!


Remarkable-Bother-54

12-139 and we are part of the 12. fuck yeah…keep moving


TheTurtleOne

Buffalo be roaming

bubsiboo

BUFFALO BUFFALO BUFFALO BUFFALO BUFFALO BUFFALO BUFFALO BUFFALO. I FUCKING LOVE BUFFALO.


RiPFrozone

We’re onto Miami


cquigs20

WE BACK IN THIS SHIT. For the amount of pain this team gives me, wins like tonight make me realize why I love this team!


Thicc_Grayson84

The 2004 Red Sox are pretty lonely up there.... time for someone to join them 🙏


chivestheconqueror

Jimmy “14 points” Butler gets all the credit when the Heat win and NONE of the blame when they lose


smart_celtics

Jimmy has so many playoff duds but somehow he’s clutch in the playoffs and Tatum is inconsistent.


Ulexes

I trust this team to win two out of two! Let's do this!


johnnyrockets527

I’m starting to get my hopes up and I kinda hate it. But I’ll enjoy the dub for tonight.


AirJordan6124

Don’t give me hope 🤣🤣


sky-nettt

I’m going to be shitting myself saturday


yametegg

4 guys with 20+ zamn


TheSaltySloth

Now comes the real test


ktgop

god i hate this team man, just when i’m ready to give up they pull me back in, fuck it CELTICS IN 7


cnlapointe

GET IN HERE


celticsfan34

I knew we were going to win this in the first few minutes. We got every loose ball, everyone was diving on the floor. The whole team knew they needed to play perfect.


longconsilver13

Joe Mazzulla in his Red Auerbach era


Yoshable

Game 6 in Miami is harder than game 7 at home. Next game is the big one for sure


cjdavock5

Going to need an all time Tatum performance in game 6 to win this series


UFGatorNEPat

Need to get him in the post or along the baseline more when they are having success. They were locked in defensively there for a little while.


SGT_Scuba_Steve

DOOMERS 🙅‍♀️ OUT 👉🚪


rosecoloredchances

history


Kevin485

THEY LET US HAVE ONE!


zerozxf

Dont give me hope. Lets go keep up the DEFENSE next game


bubsiboo

What the fuck was the end of that game Maybe leave in the starters 30 seconds more


FunctionDifferent887

I was scared for a long while watching that end of game bit. Jesus Christ I was praying they didnt fumble.


POPAccount

There is literally no reason why they can’t do it


BuffaloForeskin

I feel like the Heat pulled their starters way too early. It's a big lead, but with 7 minutes left and this Celtics team always blowing leads, why not give it your all now? Are they that confident they will not get in a big hole the next game so they want to make sure Butler and Bam aren't too tired? I feel like this decision will backfire on them, and I'm here for it.


CollateralSandwich

I was honestly stunned by that. It seemed too early to me too, but what do I know. I'm only glad Spo made that decision.


hypercafspazz

Man Brogdon getting hurt sucks


munkmunk49

Hoping to see some Hauser min instead of PP next game


chinesefox97

Lights might get a bit too bright for undrafted players game 6 and 7 😎


smart_celtics

Crazy that Miami still shot the shit out of the ball tonight.


FlyingMocko

The Celtics are not as fraudulent as the Bucks, so there’s that.


whale-tail

Can’t jinx it, but man, if there was ever a team to do the unprecedented…


nobueno_

Don’t let us remember how to play basketball.


DizzyTS13

Game 6, who’s gonna be the bloody sock? Brogdon gonna come out with sutures holding his elbow together and go for 30


awesomesox

He’s gonna have his arm amputated and replaced with a robotic arm


HolyTythinEar

Joe coached a hell of a game tonight.


aPrid123

Now we go down to Miami to clap them cheeks


theborjsanity

GAME 5 SHALL NOW BE KNOWN AS THE BUFFALO GAME


DerelictDonkeyEngine

Still a hell of an uphill climb, but I'm impressed with the fight the last 2 wins.

koj12144

If we win game 6 we win the series


Smart-Koala4306

Come out like they did today and it’s game 7 at home.


GrayBox1313

The Miami heat players…that doubt creeping into their heads now.


krazylegs36

Bloody Sock Game on Saturday.


insertdankmeme

I was getting irrationally nervous when I looked down and it was only a 10 point game with over a minute left and Sammy Logo pulled up from 30 feet.


SicWiks

Someone said look what happens when the Heats roll players aren’t shooting like the best three point shooters of all time for game 4 Well that happened tonight


planj07

Don’t let us win 2.


Izikren

Fuck, I guess I believe in the impossible. Cs in 7


FunctionDifferent887

PLEASE GOD!!! LET MIAMI GET EMBARASSED I PRAAAYYY!!!!


Frank2442

150 teams had gone down 3-0 before us. We are only the 15th to win two. Can we be the 4th ever to force a 7? God speed frainds


530josh

*”Ortiz bites it off center field! Damon running to the plate, and he can keep on running to New York! Game Six tomorrow night!”*


imconsideringdascrod

**THIS** Celtics team??? I haven’t not seen these guys in a WHILE, holy shit. Like yeah they’ve had good games a few times this postseason but that’s the most hyped and locked in performance I’ve seen from them in a MINUTE. It feels good seeing them play so well you can practically feel the energy through the tv, I believe! Teams have come back from 3-2 plenty of times before ;)


20wall

Joe Mazzula was legitimately great tonight. Excellent timeouts and excellent management of the game. Crazy to type that out


sodabubbles1281

Don’t let us get another one - JB


captaing1

1 game at a time. lets gooooooo


JaylenCrown

The Celtics have satisfied me entirely


muffin808man

Good job boys. Stay determined, stay focused


DustMonsterXIV

As a great Celtic once said, "ANYTHING IS PAAWWWSIBUULLLL"


sktchld

I'm a die-hard boston fan, and out of the 4 major sports, I gotta say the Celtics are the most infuriating team to watch. They're perfectly capable of running teams out of the building like they did the past 2 games, but they like making things difficult on themselves. Celtics in 7!


OHBSquishy

FUCK IT LETS JUST GET GOOFY! CELTICS IN 7!


WarPuig

If the Celtics had won just one of the first two games…


AcrobaticFeedback

Betting the over on Highsmith 3s and points was the easiest bet of my life.
