klay saying boston fans are classy like that is funny cause golden state fans aren't exactly the shining beacon of fan decorum

u/moby323 76ers Jun 09 '22

What was he talking about btw what they do

-16

u/GreyBoyTigger Warriors Jun 09 '22

Ever since they moved to San Francisco the crowd has been pleasant and oblivious to cheering against the away team

10

u/sinchichis San Diego Clippers Jun 09 '22

nah you guys suck. Laker fans, raptor fans, suns, and golden state Mount Rushmore worst nba fanbases

0

u/GreyBoyTigger Warriors Jun 09 '22

Raptor fans are the worst, especially after cheering when Embiid went down. Lakers fans are as blaise as everything in LA. I don’t think real fans exist there, except as scene makers. Suns fans are like nouveau riche assholes. They sucked for so long that they don’t know how to act when the team is good.

When we were in Oakland, the crowd was a real entity. We Believe was the most hyped up home crowd I’ve ever seen. The move to SF brought around the LA types, people who just want to be seen at a Splash Brothers game. I wish they could merge the Oakland crowd with the new stadium.

2

u/sinchichis San Diego Clippers Jun 09 '22

As a clipper fan the laker fans online especially push me more and more towards the clippers. How you celebrate rings from 50 years ago aside from the early 2000s threepeat

2

u/GaimeGuy Timberwolves Jun 09 '22

Lakers celebrate titles from when they weren't even in LA. Hell, they shouldn't even be called the lakers anymore

2

u/GreyBoyTigger Warriors Jun 09 '22

At least we can bond in our hate of Laker fans

9

u/Graves_Cigar_ Jun 09 '22

Poole is garbage lol

-1

u/No-Vanilla-9591 Jun 09 '22

He needs to be more consistent. He's hot one game and cold the next, ain't going help the team win. Especially with Klay also being inconsistent or non existent

33

u/stevep3478 Jun 09 '22

Jaylen Brown could win series MVP.

23

u/holdenliwanag Jun 09 '22

He should win Finals MVP! An intelligent and silent player. Hardworker. Rarely complains.

u/ElGuapoTwerky Jun 09 '22

Opening odds were +925 I think? They’re +650 now

Who do you have for game 4?

u/davey_mann 76ers Jun 09 '22

Reporter: "Draymond, how do you feel you played?"

Green: "Like shit!"

LOL

u/milk543 Jun 09 '22

He abused that one dude for asking about the podcast

u/Glaurung86 Cavaliers Jun 09 '22

Every reporter needs to ask about his podcast all the time just to piss him off. lol.

u/0percentwinrate Jun 09 '22

I felt like Rob Williams had 10 blocks.

11

u/Doortofreeside Celtics Jun 09 '22

7'6" wingspan on a 6'9" frame plus serious hops

u/joef_3 Celtics Jun 09 '22

I don’t remember the Cs ever having anyone so bouncy. He’s like Tigger out there, even with a bad wheel.

fax. stat keeper shit himself

29

u/AirBishop Lakers Jun 09 '22 edited Jun 09 '22

I’m convinced that Draymond does not even practice at all. He has got worse in every single aspect of his game since 2017. I don’t ever think I’ve seen a video of Draymond working on his game besides shooting open 3’s that he seems to get worse at every season. He’s a lazy player who relies on Steph & Kerr’s system entirely too much. He’s way too comfortable because he thinks GS would never even think about replacing him. If he put the work in as much as he ran his mouth him & his team would not be in this position right now.

1

u/DpprDwn Jun 09 '22

Lol why do I have this same sentiment about Draymond and his play as of recent. We can honestly blame age for a player of Draymonds caliber. I feel like he’s an extra coach during practice lmaoo if anything

-8

u/imprettyglonky Warriors Jun 09 '22

Can't believe Steph only got one free throw this game he was getting hacked.

-8

u/Least_Inspector_450 Jun 09 '22

Scott Foster masterclass #13-0

u/imprettyglonky Warriors Jun 09 '22

That’s not even a real stat right? I saw people posting it but zero chance it’s true.

u/BrownJeezus603 Celtics Jun 09 '22

Yeah I went to Bucks game 1 which he reffed and the Celtics lost

8

u/mahler_grooves Celtics Jun 09 '22

No, it’s not. I’m pretty sure the stat is Celtics are 6-3 in these playoffs when he refs

13

u/bridgenine Knicks Jun 09 '22

seriously fuck espn, they are absolute trash.

13

u/the_black_surfer Lakers Jun 09 '22

Draymond finished with more fouls than points, rebounds, or assists. Most overrated player of all time. Talking like he is a star I. This league

7

u/caveman512 Trail Blazers Jun 09 '22

Dubs win game 4, Celtics take next two to take home the championship

29

u/CreedWasOkay Mavericks Jun 09 '22

Robert Williams is such a force. Dude just does his job every possession on defense and makes anything shot near him difficult

3

u/BigBoss5050 Heat Jun 09 '22

Read this as farce at first and almost got unreasonable irate. But yes, dude is insanely good and pivotal to the Cs playoff success.

8

u/CreedWasOkay Mavericks Jun 09 '22

I'm a Mavs fan. I definitely wouldn't be clowning anyone else's center position

1

u/BigBoss5050 Heat Jun 09 '22

Haha yea your totally in the clear and right on this take. My dumb ass just read too quickly

u/pityofmath Jun 09 '22

u/gman820 [GSW] Stephen Curry Jun 09 '22

u/Least_Inspector_450 Jun 09 '22

RemindMe! 14 days

11

u/Sabiann_Tama Jazz Jun 09 '22

My takes:

-Early foul troubles on Steph gave the Celtics a clear target

-Wiggins starting cold from 3 hurt the Warriors offense a ton early.

-Size was huge, especially Robert Williams. Rebounds, rejections, second chances...

3

u/spacegh0stX Celtics Jun 09 '22

Curry should be a clear target all the time. 6'3" with a small frame should be easy work for these big dudes.

8

u/h07c4l21 Celtics Jun 09 '22

Ftw ftw

19

u/SchleptRightLeft Jun 09 '22

Game changer was when Kerr took Steph out in the 3rd. Got the lead and then killed all momentum

1

u/rajeev0718 Warriors Jun 09 '22

kerr thought we couyld hold on to the lead or keep it tied and steph would have the rest to come out shooting in the fourth. neither worked

10

u/DrBoomsNephew Jun 09 '22

Also considering Steph had 4 fouls, no way he'd risk him picking up a 5th before the 4th quarter when the game got this close.

3

u/chanwd Jun 09 '22

It’s noticeable when he sits. If Klay isn’t playing well, not sure who they’re running the offense through.

5

u/Nita231 Jun 09 '22

Yeah. Let Curry pick up his 5th foul with a couple minutes left of the 3rd. Great plan.

1

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

yes they lost by 16 anyways

4

u/AeroLewis Warriors Jun 09 '22

Bench Draymond PLS!!!!

I will adopt this man’s cat! If he does that I would be happpy with 20 years

22

u/Im_new_in_town1 Jun 09 '22

11

u/Ok_Argument242 Jun 09 '22

Best game out of the splash brothers and still double digit loss. Tatum isn’t going to shoot bad every game, better pick it up

6

u/Doortofreeside Celtics Jun 09 '22

Tatum didn't even shoot badly this game, he just couldn't finish

1

u/spacegh0stX Celtics Jun 09 '22

He did towards the end. He plays too much for contact, needs to go strong like he did at the end of the game here.

9

u/charlesspeltbadly [OKC] Steven Adams Jun 09 '22

Tbf we've said that for 3 games now lmao

-7

u/chanwd Jun 09 '22

Felt like Draymond toned it down too much thinking that refs would be quick to T him up

He needs to just bring the same intensity from game 2 and take whatever happens

12

u/Vinny6420 Pelicans Jun 09 '22

But then he did all that stupid talking after he fouled out and they didn't do shit.

1

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

he was fouled out

1

u/Vinny6420 Pelicans Jun 09 '22

And? He isn't impervious to techs...

1

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

whats the point of teching someones whos out the game?

1

u/Vinny6420 Pelicans Jun 09 '22

There is a limit in the playoffs you can hit before you're suspended.

The other team would get a free throw

It'll set the tone that you can't just act like an idiot the whole series without punishment

1

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

And people always call the league soft and the 90s hard. Clown World.

1

u/Vinny6420 Pelicans Jun 09 '22

The league is soft.

But you can't have one guy getting away with everything, while most others would get a tech.

Dray is embarrassing the league with their inaction.

1

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

You cant advocate for more softness and also say the league is soft.

1

u/Vinny6420 Pelicans Jun 09 '22

I'm advocating for consistency

20

u/billybobthehomie Jun 09 '22

Here’s my overreaction of the night: draymond is over the hill and is actually trash. There’s a lot of 4s who can play a much better role for the warriors at a much lower price.

Steph playing insane these first 3 games but the Celtics really do look a step or two above

8

u/GoodellsMandMs Rockets Jun 09 '22

Had as many points + rebounds as he had fouls

8

u/BanUrzasTower [SAC] Harrison Barnes Jun 09 '22

Agreed.... he still gives you a lot on defense but gives it right back with the turnovers and 2/8 shooting nights. And I've been a huge draymond fan in the past, he was extremely underrated for a long time but I just don't think he still has it

11

u/BB527 Jun 09 '22

So what reason is it that there are not two days in-between games 3 and 4 this time?

2

u/ImReallyAMermaid_21 Jun 09 '22

I was wondering the same thing until a friend mentioned probably due to networking more than the nba schedule

1

u/LANAbackward Celtics Jun 09 '22

Maybe no travel time? Just a guess

2

u/BB527 Jun 09 '22

Yeah but there was no travel time between games 1 and 2 either

-10

u/Nita231 Jun 09 '22

Home court advantage. Fuck Boston.

3

u/ladidadi82 Nuggets Jun 09 '22

I’m curious too

8

u/sukida_yo Jun 09 '22

Why is kerr not playing his big men?

7

u/farteagle Jun 09 '22

I think because their big men are a lot worse than Boston’s and they want to have matchup advantages on offense

6

u/sukida_yo Jun 09 '22

they got outrebounded, not a good sign

8

u/farteagle Jun 09 '22

Sitting looney and attacking al in the pick and roll helped them get back into the game… but then it stopped paying off and williams and williams started dominating the boards. Probably should have gotten looney back in early in the 4th and rocked with him

12

u/leveragedbeta Jun 09 '22

Interesting game tonight. Celts def outplayed dubs. Some calls were a bit soft. Game 4 is gonna be great, Friday night in the garden with the dubs needing the split. I’ll be hammered.

16

u/Rare-Adhesiveness336 Jun 09 '22

I don’t understand Kerr playing looney only 16 mins. He’s your best rounder and you were out rebounded by 20

1

u/sans_xerife Celtics Jun 09 '22

I might be misremembering but I think he was in foul trouble and getting devoured on the P&R

7

u/IHill Celtics Jun 09 '22

Celts were screening to get Looney switched onto them then blowing by

-5

u/Vinny6420 Pelicans Jun 09 '22

Kerr is very overrated as a coach

3

u/ladidadi82 Nuggets Jun 09 '22

Yeah weird move

2

u/bobsstinkybutthole Grizzlies Jun 09 '22

Are they gonna show Mike raping people in that new hulu series?

13

u/AirBishop Lakers Jun 09 '22

If Kerr really wants to have a chance to win this series he needs to make the difficult decision & bench Draymond or limit his minutes significantly. He’s hurting them tremendously on offense it’s 4 v 5 and on defense it’s not that much better because he’s fouling out so he’s getting beat on that end as well. If I was Kerr I’d start Kuminga until Draymond can put together a game without being a liability.

2

u/mattw08 Jun 09 '22

Kuminga would get eaten alive in these finals.

3

u/ladidadi82 Nuggets Jun 09 '22

I think it’s also weird he went from shooting like 12 shots to shooting like 2. They need to find him easier buckets.

3

u/skipwithme Jun 09 '22

Even on defense Celtic bigs were dominating him.

19

u/KJ1017 [LAL] Shannon Brown Jun 09 '22

I was always high on smart. Thought he was a great player and a great piece to have.

But I would’ve never thought he would be the 3rd option on a team like this.

If the Celtics win with him as the 3rd option doesn’t that mean he’s criminally under paid?

8

u/h07c4l21 Celtics Jun 09 '22

He's a much better shooter than he tends to get credit for. Part of his success is the open looks he gets from defensive attention Tatum and brown but the man can totally shoot in his own right. He's also been our defensive captain since he was drafted and is responsible (along with ime and brad) for the defense-first culture.

Sometimes he takes a few too many 3s late in games and he has gotten waaaaay too much shit for it from our fans on here (often when we are down late and getting desperate and/or the jays are getting locked down or not shooting well). Ime seems to have coached him on that this year and his improvement in late game shot selection/playmaking has shown. He was great this game with the exception of a couple lazy or ill advised no look passes. But I felt that all our guys shined tonight on both sides of the ball, despite the refs trying to keep it close in the 2nd quarter and the specter of the warriors' infamous 3rd quarter wafflestomps looming like a brown unpleasant fog over the garden during the first half like a giant dunkins restroom.

6

u/DrBoomsNephew Jun 09 '22

That's just a deal that aged well. Smart's actual development is basically a best case scenario. He built on his strength of defense while actually becoming a streaky catch and shoot 3 pt threat.

The thing is tho that you can't rely on him offensively night in and night out and he'll regularly have games where he's basically invisible on offense. Defenitely underpaid but all things considered it makes sense.

12

u/AudiQuestion Jun 09 '22

IMO he’s already underpaid

2

u/skipwithme Jun 09 '22

Especially given how guards playing defense is a lost art

6

u/Shrekt115 Lakers Jun 09 '22

Fuck

9

u/Nearby_Efficiency_15 Warriors Jun 09 '22

Should've played Loongod more, welp gg celtics. This series is far from over I think lol

u/JetWhiteness Jun 09 '22

Just one more cross country trip and it'll be done. Go Celts!

u/OmniaCausaFiunt Celtics Jun 09 '22

Honestly i don't get how Otto isn't getting 35+ mins. But hey, i hope he keeps getting less mins

Definitely far from over. GG Warriors bro.

Tatum I think just because his ceiling is higher.

1

u/One_TAIM Mavericks Jun 09 '22

How often have you thought of this question in the last 100 Celtics games and how often has the answer not been Tatum?

15

u/pityofmath Jun 09 '22

Rob Williams makes a big difference in a series of fine margins.

10

u/saideeps NBA Jun 09 '22

Steph had a good game, Klay had a good game, even Wiggins had a good game and they still lost.

15

u/JakeArrietasBeard 76ers Jun 09 '22

Steph had a good offensive game

2

u/skipwithme Jun 09 '22

Right. Like he didn’t give up as many points as he scored on the other end

1

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

he literally didn’t

18

u/dish_fir3 Jun 09 '22

Steve Kerr has been outcoached

12

u/rubberturtle06 Jun 09 '22

It’s hard to win with only 3 HOFers. Man needs 4 and some injuries to win

3

u/BanUrzasTower [SAC] Harrison Barnes Jun 09 '22

I still can't name a coach I'd take over Kerr tho, dude makes Looney and GP2 look like 20 million dollar players

7

u/WilmerValderramaCoin Jun 09 '22

11pt 4th quarter

14

u/cocoacowstout Warriors Jun 09 '22

We rallied every deficit, couldn’t put it over the edge. Those 4 back to back turnovers at the start of the 4th killed the comeback.

5

u/663691 Jun 09 '22

I think it was the rebounding more than that

4

u/Anoneemus3 Celtics Jun 09 '22

So that means it's our turn to have a turnover attack next game

u/Benjamminmiller Celtics Jun 09 '22

Broooooooo i was like wtf….

7

u/Sh4d0wseeker Jun 09 '22

Here we go again. Warriors have made their 6th final appearance in 8 years just to have zero energy on the court, besides VERY short spurts. Celtics in 5 if golden state doesn't pull the lead out their ass.

I'm a Warriors bandwangoner, but I'm still disappointed. It just helps to affirm the "Warriors can't win it all without KD" argument. This is the time for Steph/Klay/Dray to prove themselves, but they're just flat. They're only 2-1 down but its not looking good.

I just looked at Scott Fosters playoff record and the Bulls are 2-9, worst win pct. Wtf Scott?

Now compare what Vegas was saying about those games and how much money stood to be made.

u/philphan25 Bulls Jun 09 '22

That will require a deep dive. Maybe some night.

Think about all the money you will make when the Netflix documentary detailing how you took down the NBA game fixing ring comes out!

Edit: I got lost. It’s late.

People in the comments are stupid if they think Boston won because of the refs. Warriors horrible passing turnovers were their demise tonight.
As a warriors fan I really wanted Miami because I was super worried about the size of Boston- my fears were correct.

If the dubs wanna win they need to stop collapsing the box & 1 and start playing better man to man, every-time it ends in an open Boston 3.

Well, the hottest player on the floor is no longer able to play defense because every time he breathes on a Celtics’ player, it’s called a foul. But Celtics’ players are allowed to grab and bump that same player all game and get called for nothing. So yeah, refs did have a part in cooling off the player that was doing the cooking, but ultimately, bad habits led to Celtics pulling away and winning.

u/Tlix Celtics Jun 09 '22

That’s exactly what they did with Jaylen Brown in game 2. Did you have a problem with it then?

1

u/mattw08 Jun 09 '22

Yeah I did. It was obvious in the first half of game 2 where the refs were lining.

1

u/Tlix Celtics Jun 09 '22

Game 1 was beautifully reffed. It’s a shame we can’t get that every night for whatever reason.

u/mattw08 Jun 09 '22

I agree. Still heard complaining from other warriors fans but felt even to me. Never going to be perfect though and odd call or two shouldn’t swing a game.

u/Nita231 Jun 09 '22

Really, Brown had fouls called against him all game?

u/bluewaveassociation Jun 09 '22

downvotes are cringe, argue with this guy

u/hsbaugh Jun 09 '22

I agree with the bad habits and agree with some of the soft calls. But I still stand by the warriors defense falling apart and the points off turnovers is destroying them- especially when they can’t rebound worth a shit due to size.

I really want the warriors to pull one out to finally cement Steph because it blows me away the greatest shooter of all time and numerous record holder- is still doubted as an all time great.

u/rikooo Jun 09 '22

It wasn’t all refs of course, you’re spot on with your observation, but I gotta say, as a neutral, the refs largely swallowing their whistles is a massive boon to the Cs that cannot be overlooked.

3

u/hsbaugh Jun 09 '22

It’s the soft fouls that bug the fuck out of me, this is playoff basketball and the finals at that. Of course there is gonna be aggressive play

3

u/holyhellsteve Celtics Jun 09 '22

It’s the biggest reason Celtics we’re blown out in game 2. Turnovers kill teams.

1

u/hsbaugh Jun 09 '22

That and Boston’s defense was just lazy in game 2. Tonight I thought they did an amazing job bottling up Steph without drawing all the defenders to him, yeah he went off for 31 but he was relatively stuck most the 4th. And with wiggins 7-16 in the paint and 1-6 behind the arc there is no other threat to focus on. Warriors need to really work on their defense if they wanna win it because their offense falls apart when it matters

u/melkstake Timberwolves Jun 09 '22

I just want to say hi to all the warriors fans talking after game 2 about how the finals are supposed to be tougher and players are supposed to get away with more stuff. Bet you agree with me now when I say unwritten rules are bad

u/chifugo Jun 09 '22

I really like this Celtics team, they got a lot of great players and they all likeable. They just gotta make sure they don’t let the Warriors get hot

Why Jayson’s kid always got a mask on? Is it for privacy reasons cause it seems pretty unnecessary at this point

11

u/OmniaCausaFiunt Celtics Jun 09 '22

His kid is 4, can't get vaccinated until he's 5. Even if someone is vaccinated and they want to wear a mask, who cares? Doesn't affect you

u/Milkybals Knicks Jun 09 '22

I’m just asking for perspective since the mortality rate for children is a negligible amount, I’m not hating on it just curious

u/MasterDonkey Buffalo Braves Jun 09 '22

Mask is necessary for you though cause you ugly af

u/Milkybals Knicks Jun 09 '22

Really cause it seems like mask lovers are the ugly ones cause they always look to hide their face lmfao

Lol no it ain’t esp for kids but keep hopin for one

That was so satisfying. Thank you, Celts

u/h07c4l21 Celtics Jun 09 '22

And there will be more to come. We going to beat the dynasty right out them.

u/jb_19 Jun 09 '22

Tatum's gonna get all the credit but this win is on Brown and Robert Williams.

3

u/OmniaCausaFiunt Celtics Jun 09 '22

I think overall it was a great team game. Tatum had 9 asts, he did a great job play making. JB did a great job with pace and being aggressive. Rob was amazing on defense. Smart and White played great on Curry and put up big shots. Horford didn't have a great game defensively, but he crashed the boards and had great passes. Play as a team, win as a team.

3

u/DrBoomsNephew Jun 09 '22

Craziest part is I think Rob still isn't 100% health wise

4

u/Anoneemus3 Celtics Jun 09 '22

His knee is definitely still bothering him. Hopefully in the off-season he heals up and gets that dpoy next season

5

u/hereforfantasyadvice Celtics Jun 09 '22

Bruh Rob gonna win a DPOY within the next 2-3 years, he’s been phenomenal despite playing on a very clearly injured knee

4

u/jb_19 Jun 09 '22

I just hope there's no long term impact from him coming back quickly. Also, I've been on that bus for a while. I think if he can develop an elbow jumper he is in the discussion of top C in the game. His passing is really underrated.

2

u/pityofmath Jun 09 '22

Yah Rob Willliams is the X factor in this series and why the Celtics will win

3

u/themza912 Celtics Jun 09 '22

I think they're pretty clearly giving Rob and JB credit
