That was close

OK, I admit it. This is exactly why I don't watch these games. No athletic contest is worth the coronary.

I went to bed with the Celtics enjoying an 8-point lead. So the fact they finished with a 6-point win seemed perfectly reasonable. Until I heard the details.

But a win is a win, is a win. Particularly in June when there are, at most, five games left.

It sounds ugly. The guys sound repentant as in lesson learned. Let's hope so.

Going to LA up 2-0 was crucial since the 2-3-2 format effectively strips home court advantage by putting the pivotal fifth game on the other guy's court.

It wasn't pretty. But it counts as a W nonetheless.
