The Celtics rebound in a strong way, defeating the Miami Heat 127-102 with contributions from up and down the lineup. Lead by their three best players and a barrage of three pointers, the Celtics just were too much for the Heat to handle. The return of Marcus Smart and Al Horford also proved to be huge, as expected, with Smart having a huge 24 point-12 assist-1 turnover game. They controlled the game for 43 minutes of this game and did not look back. Patrick and Lucas explain how everything went right and look forward to the next couple games in Boston.
The Celtics play a good first half, only for it to be wasted by a horrific third quarter.

Pat and Lucas cover the game, and get into game 7 predictions!
Pat and Lucas break down the crucial game 4 victory that the Celtics won 116-108 on the back of a massive fourth quarter. Specifically, a massive fourth quarter from The Godfather himself, Al Horford! With 6-6 and 16 points in the final frame, he helped save the game and potentially the season. Along with other big contributions from Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart, the Celtics ended up pulling out the victory. Pat gives Lucas some trivia which he (surprisingly) gets correct! They also look forward to game 5 and pick the keys to the game!
After getting bullied in game 1, the Celtics respond exactly how everyone wanted them to; by getting up and throwing a haymaker of their own.

The Celtics have officially matched up with their Eastern Conference Semi Final opponent, the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks!
