Who will be the Celtics’ hero in Game 4?

Who will be the Celtics’ hero in Game 4?

Marcus Smart drew his first playoff start in Game 3 and turned in his best post-season performance in a win. Who’s next? Marcus Smart was the designated "next man up" in Game 3.

I think he's the Celtics best hope, aside from Al Horford, at pulling the defense out of the paint. That was a big key in the comeback. He's also the Celtics longest defender and had some good contests at the rim. Boston needs him to do it again. Lachlan Marr: I’d love to see Jaylen Brown have a...

Al Horford's screen on Avery Bradley 3-pointer deemed legal in Game 3 against Cavaliers, but Jonas Jerebko 3 shouldn't have counted

Al Horford's screen on Avery Bradley 3-pointer deemed legal in Game 3 against Cavaliers, but Jonas Jerebko 3 shouldn't have counted

The NBA says Al Horford's screen on Tristan Thompson that allowed Avery Bradley to shoot an open 3-pointer that won Game 3 Sunday night was legal. But an earlier 3-pointer by Boston's Jonas Jerebko in the Celtics' 111-108 win over the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals should not have counted because of a moving screen on Marcus Smart that was not called.
