Why am I surprised? This is the 2012 Celtics. They followed up a gritty, gutty win in Miami with a pathetic peformance at home with a Finals berth on the line.
LeBron James was phenomenal: 45 points, 19-26 FG and 15 rebounds.
Paul Pierce was phenomenally awful: 9 points on 4-18 FG.
James is going to get all the credit, but the Celtics beat themselves tonight. Bad turnovers. Wide-open 3 point bricks. Momentum killing lapses.
Game 7 in Miami. Bring it. But I don't like their chances.
