  • Botkin: “I think Jillian Brown Plays better at home. I think one of the character players – Derek White, Grant Williams Or El Horford – It’s a big night and Jason Tatum Can’t get rid of it forever. The Boston crowd is about to become bananas. The Golden State is not a magician. It has holes. Boston will find its way to most of them to push this thing to seven. Select: Celtics-3.5 Celtics 107, Warriors 103

Not everyone feels that way, though. NBA columnist Bill Reuters picks up the Warriors and says. To extend the series, Celtics have to show us something special, it is very unlikely to win..

  • Repeat: The real answer to how Boston wins this thing is simple and twofold: don’t let Curry beat you, and don’t beat yourself. … First of all: good luck. Written, this is possibly going to end his career as a top 5 all-time player, a full-time talent not often praised, getting the dues he deserved after so long. ..But the second point explains why this series feels over: no the team can win the championship if it gets as close to it as it does, and the Celtics get nervous And there has been a combination of bad games in which a ring is closest to you … “

  • Goalkeeper: “He is rare among all the players who seem to be able to switch between the world’s toughest courses in the most difficult exams in this game. The championship can be won, but perhaps the two most important indicators – past performance in the world’s toughest championships and level of confidence compared to the field – are definitely not included. “

If you need more persuasion, here are Copca’s last four US Open appearances:

Our MLB reporter Matt Snyder hit the nail on the head when he wrote: “Sports are fun, that’s why we watch.”

That’s why their latest installment MLB 2022 All Art Team Great read for any baseball fan. Of Yankees Having a lot of fun together this season. MLB’s best 46-16 recordAnd they add two players to Snyder’s list.

  • Snyder:Judge Aaron – He is at the speed of more than 60 homers. No further explanation is required. Giancarlo Stanton – There is no one in baseball who hits the ball harder. Now we have the technology to measure and prove it. It’s even more ridiculous – if we can get over how unfair it is to the rest of us – when he barely touches the bat’s head and it still clears the wall. “

While Judges and Stanton are really fun (and really good), they don’t get the nickname “Captain” on this fictitious team. This honor belongs to a player who can still be the radar of a casual baseball fan.

  • Snyder:Jazz Chesholm, Marilyn – If there’s a captain here, it’s jazz. … It is an additional base machine of all kinds (seven doubles, four triples, 13 homers). It’s a power speed combo when you just watch the house race and burglary. He will do things at bases other than stealing, including how good he is for the hit. He will do interesting defensive plays. He is always outwardly ready and has something to look forward to. The different colors in her hair are just a bonus. Greetings to all our captains. “
