Ric Flair said it best, “To be the Man you gotta beat the Man.”
Well the Celtics just beat The Man. WHOOOOOH!!!!!!!!
And they get the W on their terms. They fought and scrapped and came back from a 17 point deficit. They overcame poor shooting, a fairly lackluster to be honest Kyrie game, though he did turn it on in the Fourth as expect. Marcus had himself a night but not in a good way and Tatum finally looked like a rookie.
But in the end they gutted it out and defeated the supposed best team in the NBA.
This team!!!! This team!!!!
Hi-Topper Nation in a world with so few heroes, where everyone seems to disappoint, this Celtics team is a cut above.
These 12 men, these 12 men are special.
