The last shot
Clearly, the last shot of the game was drawn up for Marcus Morris. He was given an iso with Khris Middleton, and missed to lose the game. It wasn’t even a bad shot, but why in the world was Morris taking it?!
Jayson Tatum had just made a clutch jumper. Jaylen Brown, who I would have picked, was shooting unconsciously. I mean, even Rozier had just made a few threes.
Nope, Morris got the ball and everybody stood still. He missed and the series is tied. I really hope that decision doesn’t come back to haunt the Celtics. Jaylen Brown deserved that shot. I don’t get why an iso for the fourth or fifth best guy on the team is the call in that situation.
In Game 5, I will be looking for even more better decisions and a rejuvenated Celtics roster. At this point, I have nothing else to do but hope and watch. My confidence in a win is shot, but that can easily be changed with a strong performance.
Either way, Game 5 will probably decide the series and the season of the Boston Celtics. No pressure.
