Let’s be honest: this series between the Celtics and Miami Heat has become unwatchable.
Oh, the series is competitive, perhaps, now tied at 2-2 with Game 5 scheduled for tomorrow night in Miami. But the games themselves have been nothing short of unsightly, a succession of one-sided beatings that leave a great deal to be desired (and then some) from an aesthetic, entertainment standpoint.
Said Celtics’ coach Ime Udoka following his team’s 102-82 win in Game 4 Monday night at TD Garden: “It’s an inconsistent series from both teams at times – and it’s an odd one, honestly.”
Well, that’s one word for it. Ugly is another. Or dreadful. Or insufferable.
Ever play in a pickup game with a hardo who has no skill whatsoever and just keeps slamming into people like some sort of rabid rhino? That’s what this has been. Except that there are 10 of them out there at any given time.
