Nobody gave this team a chance.

It doesn’t matter, because the Boston Celtics believed in themselves all along and now sit one win away from a third NBA Finals appearance in five years after beating the Miami Heat on their home court, 94-90, on Tuesday night.

The most shocking part is that Miami stars Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were in full force last night, while Rajon Rondo shot just 3-15, and the C’s still found a way to pull off the win.

Naturally, this morning Twitter is full of people apologizing to the Celtics for assuming that Miami was going to win the series before it had even started.


Even the Celtics’ bitter rivals in Los Angeles have to give their props.
