Fans confident Celtics will take the series in Game 6
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Boston Celtics now have two chances to close out the series against the Miami Heat, the first coming Thursday night in Game 6. But C’s fans don’t think they’ll need that many games to take the Eastern Conference title.
“My eyes were peeled to a basketball game like never before,” said one Celtics fan.
In the Celtics pro shop fans were gearing up for Game 6.
“We’re done, we’re sealing it. We’re home,” said one man.
The Celtics came back after being down by two games to win three in a row, taking a series lead.
“We stole one in Miami and that’s huge,” said Justin D’Arrigo, a Celtics fan. “We’re coming home tomorrow and hopefully, hopefully, hopefully we can take it in six.”
Fans say Boston has the players to do it.
“Look at Rondo -- he might drive you crazy sometimes, but come on, is he not the best?” said Stan Lapointe, a Celtics fan.
No one from Boston believes the team is too old -- they say it’s an advantage because the team has the experience.
With Game 6 at the Garden fans aren’t afraid to say the series is all but over.
