Why Al Horford's Miss Actually Benefited Celtics In Shot Clock Gaffe

Why Al Horford's Miss Actually Benefited Celtics In Shot Clock Gaffe

The Boston Celtics are +5.0 against the Milwaukee Bucks in game 5.

Stevens had options last night, like benching Jayson Tatum, who appeared to be going through the motions. That isn't a situation ripe for a comeback, especially the way the Celtics played defense on Tuesday. He played 25 minutes wearing a protective splint and had a key assist to Horford late from the bottom of a scrum beneath three Milwaukee players.

There are very few players that are better than Giannis Antetokounmpo throughout the entire league, but the Celtics found a way to hold him to just 10 shot attempts in Game 5. The Celtics desperately needed to win as the home team have won all five games in the series and the matchup heads back to Milwaukee on Thursday. Antetokounmpo will be aggressive in game 6, but he just doesn't have enough help around him. They then got face-to-face and had to be separated. "We can't be a step behind".

LeBron James said everyone on the Cavaliers' roster — himself included — needed to play better after falling behind IN 2-1 IN their series. Smart wasted no time in making an impact as he was diving for a loose ball nearly immediately, but he also had a critical assist late in the game which put Boston's lead out of reach.

If you have any thoughts about the podcast, how Game 5 unfolded, how you think the series will finish up, or anything else, let us hear them! "That's what I'm supposed to do, change the game in that way".

They're tied at 2 in the series with the eighth-seeded Washington Wizards, whose bench scoring is up in the series by about the same margin to 34.3 points.

Toronto had one of the top bench units in the National Basketball Association during the regular season, ranking fifth in the league with a combined 41.8 scoring average.

Horford finished with 14 rebounds and three assists after the Celtics built an early first-quarter lead before holding on to claim a vital win at the TD Garden. But some Bucks stressed that they couldn't pin Tuesday's loss on a potential missed call.

So if Horford had hit his long two, the points would have been taken off the board and the Bucks would have been awarded the ball. The levee broke on those guys. Turns out they couldn't. "I think my teammates did a great job finding me, but coming the next game, Game 6, I've got to be more aggressive and make more plays".

There was never any question about what the Celtics were getting with Marcus Smart's return last night.

Philadelphia, whose maligned rebuild has morphed into the one of the trendiest terms in sports, will play the victor of Boston-Milwaukee series. It was so blatant there wouldn't have been a need for the usual frame-by-frame analysis of the replay to see that Horford didn't get his shot off before the shot clock hit zero.
