After going 3-0 down in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics’ Guards Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart told the media, “Don’t let us get one.” Not only did the Celtics get one goal, but they also got their second and third in a row. tie the chain and become only Wednesday team in NBA history to advance to a seventh game after such a deficit. The Celtics also needed one of the luckiest comebacks in NBA history to continue their streak.
Watching an opponent fight back in a series after you’ve made them die for the right is hard enough. But to lose the sixth game at home, when you’ve fought back from being down almost the entire game the way Miami did, only for Boston to win at the last second of Derrick White, then really sad. The Celtics did it again against the Heat after essentially promising a return to the series. Everyone who didn’t wear green in the arena looked like they were about to get sick after realizing that White had indeed hit the right shot at the right time, thus securing a game seven in Boston on Monday.
There’s something about Boston
Honestly, the Celtics were ridiculed by nearly everyone after the “don’t let us take one” comment, which could be seen as a nod to the 2004 Boston Red Sox, who hit The same achievement these Celtics will try to achieve is completed on Monday night inside TD Garden. Kevin Millar uttered the phrase, “Let me tell you, don’t let us win today…” before game 4 against the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series in ’04. Now, nearly 20 years later, the Celtics find themselves in a similar situation with the chance to become the first team in their league history to do what was once thought impossible, in the same way that the Red Sox did in Professional baseball league.
After winning three games in a row, all the Celtics need is another win to advance to the NBA Finals in consecutive seasons. Momentum has clearly changed the Celtics’ path in this series, and so has the pressure. Miami is only prioritized in this series after winning the first three games. Now after losing three goals in a row and the Celtics forced to play a seventh game, no one expected the Heat to end up on the road. The pressure is on the shoulders of the home team Boston. And the Heat were right back where they felt most comfortable, as the weaker team.
NBA hthe story will be done
There’s so much to wait for in game Saturday on Monday that this could turn out to be one of the best knockouts ever. So much history is at stake. If the Celtics win, they will become the first team in the association to finish back from 0-3. They were only the fourth person forced to play the seventh game. If the Heat win and progress to the NBA Finals, they will only be the second 8th seed to make it to the NBA Finals. The Knicks were the first and only number eight seed to reach the NBA Finals.
The New England area may be the luckiest sports area in America after the Saturday nights are over. The reign of the Patriots began with a gracious call in a split-round knockout against the Oakland Raiders in January 2002, now known as the infamous Stuff rules game. As mentioned, the Red Sox had an unbelievable comeback against the Yankees in ALCS ’04, and now the Celtics can match their baseball opponents by completing the same task. And after how heartbreakingly Team C won game six, you can’t say that the Irish’s luck isn’t on their side if they finish off Heat in game seven.
