Jason Smith: “When it comes down to the end of big games, Steph can’t get his shot off. Teams swarm him, and he’s not getting the same looks as he was getting in the early parts of the game. In the 4th quarter, Boston clamped down on Klay, Steph and Draymond, and they couldn’t do anything. This is always who Steph has been toward the end of games, his playing style doesn’t adapt well. Jayson Tatum had a terrible shooting night, but he altered his game and instead of taking shots, he dished it out and finished double digits in assists. With the Warriors, they’re in a position where they’re trying to eek out one more title with this core, and the Celtics made their age show a little bit tonight.”

Jason Smith and Mike Harmon react to the Celtics stunning come from behind victory to steal Game 1 of the NBA Finals away from the Warriors. Jason feels that the Warriors may have gotten made, and their age is definitely starting to show early in this series. Listen to the segment above!
