Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Seven

After becoming just the fourth team in NBA to come back from a 0-3 deficit in the playoffs, the Boston Celtics couldn't become the first team to win a playoff series overcoming that deficit. The Celtics were blown out at home by the Miami Heat, 103-84. Twitter was quick to roast the Celtics for their subpar performance.

However, one particular criticism that stood out came from Draymond Green. Despite his own second-round playoff exit, Green has become a pivotal voice from the sidelines. Furthermore, there was no way that Green was staying silent as the Celtics crashed out in one of the most humiliating ways possible.

Green Roasts The Celtics

"The Boston Celtics are who we thought they were… They did not look like they were ready for the moment… All of a sudden they looked like they couldn't play basketball with their left hand again," Green said on his podcast in the minutes after the Celtics lost on national TV. Jaylen Brown had a team-high 19 points in the Game 7 loss, while the team went 9-of-42 from three-point range. However, Green's comments are also a common sentiment that has followed the Celtics like the plague throughout these playoffs.

Despite entering the postseason as the second seed, the Celtics have never played like a second seed. They needed six games to knock off the seven-seed Hawks. Furthermore, they needed to come back multiple times against the Sixers in the Conference Semifinals. While team stars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have had historic highs, the moments of true team cohesion have been few and far between. Meanwhile, head coach Joe Mazzulla likely saved his job by getting the Celtics from 0-3 to 3-4, but a number of big questions remain about the team. What do they need to do to actually become the team that can make the NBA Finals consistently? Furthermore, how do you feel about Green's comments? Let us know in the comments below.
