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. Who's your pick to be the hero of Game 4? Keith Smith: Kelly Olynyk. He quietly had a very good game 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...

Stay on the offensive: Celtics need to attack Cavaliers’ defense

Without Isaiah Thomas, Boston’s young core of Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, and Terry Rozier must remain aggressive. Game 2 was a blood bath. The autopsy on the box score was what you would have expected in a 44-point blowout. The Celtics turned the ball over 21 times. Cleveland made nearly half of their 39 three pointers. The Cavaliers’ starters combined for a +165. Dig even deeper and it gets uglier. Boston shot an abysmal 28.9% on uncontested shots (11-for-39) and just 8 of 27 from behind the arc. They settled for an inordinate amount of long-2’s, making just 6 of 25 between...
