On today’s Doug Gottlieb Show, guest hosts Dan Beyer and Ryan Hollins discuss the Boston Celtics clawing back into their series against the Miami Heat after being down 3-0. With the series heading into Game 6, and Boston now being one game away from tying the series, Dan believes that even if the Celtics complete the comeback and take the series in 7 Games, it wouldn’t be the greatest 3-0, or even 3-1 comeback in sports history!
Dan Beyer: “When we talk about 3-0 series comebacks, one we brought up was Yankees-Red Sox. That was in the AL Championship series with two of the best teams in baseball. You just laid out where the Miami Heat came from: they played good basketball at the end of the year, but by no means were they one of the top-level teams in the NBA this year. So, when we look at Boston coming back from a 3-0 deficit, I actually think the Cavs coming back 3-1 against the Warriors, even without Draymond Green in Game 5, is more impressive than anything Boston can do in this series. Even if Boston comes back from down 3-0, they are significantly better than the Heat.... There’s no way Boston should’ve been in this situation in the first place.”
