Thank you, brad dave. Now the raptors on the other end powell drives right at wanamaker punched out of there by tice poor decision in terms of the shot and then tice bails him out.

Gasol averaged four one from behind the arc: they’ve missed 10 in a row for the floor.

Three up and good accidentally looked like tatum got him upstairs it’s a five on four for boston. They find the open man – walker, 4, 3 – both teams with a week off basically Applause after their sweeps in the first round, because all no good on the three and one he got it back. You mentioned the defense. Both these teams finished in the top two and points allowed it’s as smart hits a three boston shooting 50 percent from behind the arc toronto’s at 20 percent. Some point the raptor is going to get going offensively let’s see if that’s the start of it with gasoline youtube tries to do. I mean he’s a very capable 20 per night scorer, but just draws multiple look at you force the rotation and that just opens the back door there by ty’s. Good opportunities to cut by him van blee to the open floor pulls the trigger and buries a triple. The time lord and where did that i haven’t heard that one so his rookie season and i may not get everything as tatum drops another one on that to no avail. You’Ll you’ll hear the celtics broadcast team, the great mike gorman Music, sometimes reference that nickname the time.

One now lowry’s starting to get it going with 15 points. Wan na maker wing, three players and teams first started discussing coming to the bubble. There were teams that had the iris higher seed as actual courts to orlando can we potentially have an extra foul to designate? What can we do to recreate that home court environment, and so this was something that teams Applause, Music, steal by van blee waiting for some help and it doesn’t arrive until the celtics get back.
They’Ve done a really good job of their transition. Defense, getting back ciao come to the paint he’s four for 14., just making it really difficult right now, if you put pascal into post again in game, two he’s gon na make some of those boys look at the defense from fred van glee, like don’t, be careless Around this guy foul down the drive as well consecutive steals by fred van bleet, guys, just he refuses to not compete, sees a little casual careless nature, i’m gon na just take that from you and then the first one, this one against jason, tatum, just gon na Get his hand in the passing lane great concentration, this guy’s the free throw line. This is one tough, cookie, let’s just call him nba champion too witness history in the make off, including this game being postponed, because the players didn’t want to play, and obviously an emotional, just other professional sports teams in america. Even some college teams followed suit as tatum hits the mid range jumper, not the sense that boston ever lost control at any point in this game and marcus Applause, there’s lowry, driving and how about tice trailing the play. Swats it away. Friends at tnt will have game six of that series tonight.
