The Celtics need to win the next 3 games..
Game 4 will be at home, so that is very winnable. The Celtics can not possibly go down 3-1 in the series and expect to make a comeback. That would be 2 games on the road, one of which would be a game 7. So if the C's win that game and tie the series up at 2 a piece, game 5 will be the deciding factor. If the Celtics can take that and come back home with a 3-2 lead, game 6 will be the clincher in the Garden. If it got to that point, I would have great confidence that the C's would win the series. With a game 6 at home I am sure the team would take the energy from the building and know they didn't want to head back to Cleveland. I think the team is veteran enough to know Game 6 with a 3-2 lead does NOT mean you have 2 games left, and intstead it means you have to take the series at home while you have the chance.
If the series was to go 7 games, I would be afraid. The Celtics have yet to take more free throws in any of the first 3 games, and the referees are clearly favoring the Cavs. Even if you are a Cavs fan, I think you can agree with that. 50/50 calls go the way of the Cavs, and retarded "flagrent" fouls get called for baby LeBron. Cleveland is allowed MUCH more contact while the Celtics are allowed very limited. Before I get going off on that too much, that is the reason game 7 would be nearly impossible for the Celtics to win. It is difficult enough to beat the Cavs in Cleveland, then just give them extra help.
One game at a time Celtics...
