LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE THIS TEAM WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING. THERE IS NO QUIT. FOR THE THIRD TIME IN THIS SERIES THE CELTICS NEEDED TO PUNCH BACK AND FOR THE THIRD TIME THEY RESPONDED. THIS TEAM HASN'T LOST BACK TO BACK GAMES IN 5 MONTHS. EVERYONE SAID THEY WERE DEAD AND WOULDN'T RECOVER AFTER THAT HORRIFIC CHOKE JOB IN GAME 5 AND ALL I KNOW IS I JUST WATCHED JAYSON TATUM GO FULL 2012 LEBRON GAME 6 AND GO INTO MILWAUKEE AND PUT UP A MASSIVE 46/9/4 RIGHT IN GIANNIS' EYEBALL. THIS IS NOT THE SAME CELTICS TEAM THAT ALWAYS FELT SORRY FOR THEMSELVES IN THESE TYPES OF SITUATIONS. THEY FIGHT BACK. I LOVE YOU IME YOU BEAUTIFUL BASTARD. THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T DUCK OPPONENTS SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE A GAME 7 ON YOUR OWN FLOOR. IT'S ACTUALLY KIND OF BULLSHIT WE HAVE TO PLAY 7 GAMES BECAUSE THE CELTS HAVE WON THIS SERIES LIKE 5 SEPARATE TIMES. THIS TEAM HAS BALLS. THIS TEAM HAS HEART. THIS TEAM IS NOT READY TO GO TO CANCUN AND THERE'S NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT. 

OH CAN WE ALSO TAKE A SECOND TO TALK ABOUT MARCUS SMART. PRETTY SURE A WHOLE BUNCH OF YOU ASSHOLES OWE THAT MAN AN APOLOGY. AGAIN. HE CARRIED THIS TEAM EARLY AND PLAYED HIS DICK OFF. GIANNIS HAD 44 AND IT STILL WASN'T ENOUGH WHICH I CAN'T REALLY COMPREHEND BUT WHO GIVES A SHIT. THIS IS WHY WE LOVE AND TRUST FOREVER AND ALWAYS. I LOVE THIS TEAM. I LOVE JAYSON TATUM. OK PLEASE GIVE ME A MINUTE TO COMPOSE MYSELF.

(exhale)

Uhhhhhhh…..did we just watch a legacy performance from Jayson Tatum? I'm not even being an asshole or anything I'm asking a legitimate question. This was the exact performance this team needed given the situation. He'd been shooting like shit all series and now with the season on the line, on the road in a crazy tough environment, Jayson Tatum would not be denied. He finished 17-32 (7-15) in his 43 minutes. If that's not a legacy building performance then what the fuck is? It was his LeBron moment. That's just a fact. When it came time to come through in the fourth quarter, Tatum was there. That's the type of shit the rarest of the rare are able to accomplish. We just saw Giannis do it in Game 5, well Tatum just went into his building and did it in Game 6. The defense was elite when it had to be. They took care of the basketball. They didn't play like assholes and now they live to see another day.

Game 7s are torture, there's no way around that. Anything can happen and everything that just happened is immediately thrown out the window. It's about being the better team for 48 minutes. I'll say this though, feels great to have this challenge at home. The Bucks fucked up, they let the Celts win today. Now they smell blood and I'll remind you Ime is undefeated in closeout opportunities. He's never lost. 

Also, shoutout Derrick White. What a fucking addition this guy is huh? So much for being a bad trade. Wrong again morons! He only saved the fucking season with his rebounding late. OK, I feel like I'm rambling a little bit but credit to me for actually being coherent right now. I haven't had any idea what any of this blog says since I started writing it. I fucking love this team. I love you all.

SEE EVERYONE FOR GAME 7. TIME TO DRINK!!!!
