The Celtics did it again in Oakland, beating one of the greatest teams of all time on their home court. The Warriors didn’t have Kevin Durant but this is still huge. Of all players, Kelly Olynyk killed it. He had 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. I don’t get it. He’s such a fucking stiff, it’s amazing how he just turned it on all of a sudden last night. Played a great game offensively and defensively.
Not only did the Celtics win a game against arguably the best team in the NBA, but they pulled away in the fourth quarter with some clutch basketball and smoked them, 99-86.
Boston had a 15-0 run in the fourth quarter and outscored the Warriors 27-12 in the quarter. Isaiah finished with 25 points, and got a ton of help from his teammates. The Celtics defense was the story of the night though, especially in the final 12 minutes.
So the Celtics snap the horrible 2 game losing streak they had going by beating the NBA’s best team on the road. They now have wins against the Warriors and the Cavs. Last night, they played with confidence. Brad Stevens had his guys ready for that one.
Steph Curry hit a buzzer beater at the end of the third quarter after getting Jaylen Brown to bite on a pump fake, then taunted him while he was on the opposite side of the court. Brown called it “cute” after the game. I can’t stand Steph Curry.
The Wizards won last night too, so the Celts have a one game lead over them. They need to keep that lead because I think the Wizards and Celtics are on the same level, and they don’t win when they play in Washington.
