Blowing the 20 point lead is part of who Philly is, whereas missing such an absurdly blatant travel is not who the refs are (it was not just a travel, it was a large shuffling footsteps travel, so bad the refs must have been staring at a cheerleader).
When the playoffs began I factored in Philly blowing big leads, because they are a streaky trey-shooting team, it was expected.

It's easier to replace the coach than to replace the players, and it looks like that's what Ujiri did. I would have kept Casey, and dumped the baggage (Lowry, DeRozan & JV), I mean is it his fault his two all-star guards (Lowry & DeRozan) crap the bed whenever they see LeBron on the other end of the court??

I don't mind firing Casey if a new coach is a psychological motivational type that can give Lowry/DeRozan help mentally, but they probably have specialists for that.
But if Casey represents failure, it can have a psychological effect.

This series probably should have gone to game 6 @ Philly.
Did the NBA admit how many fouls they missed when Tatum would take the ball to the rim? At least 3 by my count...

Did you factor in that Embiid pouts and practically walks off the court while play clock is still running if he doesn't get the ball when he wants it?

Did you also factor in that your GOAT can't hit a shot that is more than 3 inches from the basket?

Series probably should have been over in 4 games

Cavs looking very rusty but rest assured they will make a run.

Cavs will come back like they always do and regain control of the game.

The refs will help the Cavs cut into the lead with foul calls

I have not taken the Celtics seriously since Haywood and Irving are out but now that's changed. How good will the Celtics be next season? The league better look out.

My cousin is a Celtics fan and I told her to remove her emotions from this series because Lebron will find a way to lead his team to victory
