Warriors fans went wild for the Warriors in the first round, but Celtics fans aren’t giving up any sleep for a playoff game in Boston.
The Warriors won Game 6 in overtime and will play in Game 7 on Sunday, but fans have been on a roll this postseason, and that includes Game 7 in Boston on Monday night.
They’ve been singing, “Let’s go Warriors!” and “Celtics!
Let’s go Celtics!” in the streets of Boston for the last week, and now they’re cheering the Celtics for Game 7.
“We love the Celtics!
We love the Boston Celtics!
Let the Celtics win!,” Warriors fan Alex Buehler tweeted Sunday.
“I’m excited to be a Celtics fan in Boston.”
The Celtics are coming off back-to-back losses in which they lost to the Warriors and lost Game 5 to the Cavaliers.
But the Celtics have won two straight, and coach Brad Stevens has been able to turn his team around and put them back in the playoff picture.
The Celtics have a lot to be excited about.
The team has the best record in the NBA, and it’s in the thick of the playoff race after winning four straight games in the Western Conference playoffs.
Boston is coming off a blowout loss in the opening round against the Lakers and a loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in which it gave up 115 points.
The Celtics are trying to regain their confidence after their first loss of the season in Game 4.
The Warriors lost Game 6 on a last-second, three-point play, but they didn’t give up a single point on the Cavaliers in the second half.
The Cavs had a chance to win the series in the fourth quarter, but Steph Curry’s 3-pointer with 10 seconds remaining gave the Cavaliers the lead.
