The Boston Celtics dropped a critical Game 5 of their 2023 Eastern Conference semifinals series with the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night by coming out with low defensive intensity and poor ball movement. The loss gave fans flashbacks of the 2022 postseason when Boston put their backs against the wall against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Will the team be able to win two games in a row to avoid their season ending? Can they get their act together before it is too late? Or is this iteration of the Celtics doomed to repeat history and end their season in disappointment as another opportunity to hang a banner passes them by?
In a slightly unhinged episode of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast, your usual hosts vent their frustrations at being back in the same situation that has plagued this team for ages yet again, as well as taking the pulse of the locker room postgame.
We also get caught up on the rest of the teams still playing in the 2023 NBA Playoffs and team news since we last podded.
