The trend of the home teams have won every game in the Eastern Conference Finals continued as the Celtics after 2 losses in game 4 managed to come back home and win game 5 96-83 to take the 3-2 series lead and move to within 1 win of going to the NBA Finals despite not having Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Daniel Theis and Shane Larkin. The Celtics came out flat in the 1st quarter of games 3 and 4 and never managed to make a game of either one. The Celtics managed to come back home for game 5 and had a totally different 1st quarter. As they had a double digit lead after 1 32-19. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown outdueled the Cavaliers star duo of Lebron James and Kevin Love as Tatum and Brown combined for 41 points while Lebron and Love scored 40. The Celtics 2 young stars eliminated the Cavs top 2 players from being a difference maker in the game allowing Al Horford, Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart to only have to worry about the Cavs supporting cast. For the 3rd straight game in Boston the Cavs 2 star players didnt get a big performance from a 3rd player to help them as no other Cavs player made it above 8 points in this game. Meanwhile Horford scored 15 while Morris and Smart each scored 13 a piece. This game saw the Celtics and Cavs trade baskets and the lead early in the 1st quarter but after a Tatum 3 gave the Celtics a 14-12 lead with 5:38 in the 1st quarter the Celtics would not give up the lead again. So we will discuss the Celtics win and what that now means for the Celtics knowing no team expected them to even be in the Eastern Conference yet they are now 1 win away from the NBA Finals. We will be joined by Bobby Manning @RealBobManning from @CelticsBlog and @CLNSMedia. Sam Packard @JamPackard who is the Co-Host of the Locked on Celtics podcast. Chris Langseth @Hans02421 who is a Celtics fans... Can the Celtics win a game 6 to eliminate Lebron on his own terf and maybe end his tenure in Cleveland or is game 7 gonna happen we discus
