Cleveland's 4-1 series win gives it a 12-1 record this postseason and sets up a third consecutive matchup with Western Conference champion Golden State, the team it beat in the Finals last season to claim the franchise's first championship.
Celtics Nation serenaded the players as they walked off the floor who were disappointed but should have walked off with heads held high. "(But) this team was fully committed to getting better every day.
Now Boston looks forward to the NBA Draft on June 22, when the Celtics have the first overall pick. But Boston players acknowledged there is still work to be done to catch the Cavaliers. The showdown will live stream from TD Garden in Boston as the Celtics face the longest odds of any home playoff team in 20 years, according to Las Vegas bookmakers.
Kevin Love opened the night's scoring with a three-pointer and Marcus Smart answered to tie the game on Boston's next possession. "Collectively, we can take away what an elite (team) looks like". We've made a lot of mistakes that you can't make at this stage. Cleveland just outplayed us in this series; credit to those guys. Boston had another nice balanced attack on offense, with Avery Bradley putting up 19 points to lead the team.
And that more than anything else, is clear and undeniable evidence that the Celtics are on the come-up even after their season ended with a 135-102 Game 5 drubbing.
Celtics forward Jae Crowder agreed that Boston must embrace a desire to get better.
We're definitely disappointed. I feel like if we weren't, there would be a problem. "It sparked a little bit of motivation for each and everybody in our locker room to get better". I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike.
James was asked whether he could envision a rematch with the Celtics in next year's East finals.
James also gave his thoughts on the finals and said, "Once we get to the preparation for that juggernaut, we will be locked in". Sadly, we all have to wallow in anxiety until Jun 1.
They deserved to have this opportunity, one that's likely to come around a few more times in the near future as Boston continues to strengthen a young core with more talent and experiences like what they went through during this Conference Finals against Cleveland. "I have no idea".
