PBT Extra: Celtics playing hard, smart, but can’t close talent gap with Cavaliers

10 Comments

Give Boston credit, they have fought hard in their first-round playoff series against the heavily favorite Cavaliers. They have intentionally gotten physical with LeBron James. They have made Cleveland work for it.

But in the end, talent wins, and the Cavaliers have more of it. A lot more.

Celtics’ fans in the Boston area, if you are a Comcast subscriber you can watch a free live stream of Thursday night’s Game 3 between the Cavaliers and Celtics, just follow this link.

That’s what Jenna Corrado and I discuss in this latest PBT Extra, looking at the Cavaliers/Celtics series as it shifts to Boston for Game 3, with the Cavaliers up 2-0. We know how this movie is going to end. It’s inevitable. But the experience for this young Celtics team of what it takes and the effort they have given, that will help build the foundation in Boston for years to come.
