Boston Celtics are champions, defeat Dallas Mavericks 4-1 in NBA Finals | No Cap Room

In this episode of No space limitYahoo Sports Senior NBA Reporter Jake Fischer is at TD Garden and drenched in champagne after watching the Boston Celtics celebrate their record 18th NBA Championship after defeating the Dallas Mavericks in 5 games.

The guys start off by talking about Jayson Tatum, who showed off his passing skills and maybe exorcised some demons along the way, while leading the Celtics in every major offensive category during the NBA Finals.

They then turn their attention to Kyrie Irving, who still seems tormented by the Boston crowd. While he didn’t react, he definitely played much better in Dallas than he did in front of booing Celtics fans.

Luka Doncic once again seemed disengaged, especially on defense, leading Jake to state his disappointment that Luka could respond to criticism in such a big way in Game 4 and then not carry any of that into Game 5.

Jaylen Brown was voted Finals MVP, and the guys talk about why Brown won that vote over Tatum and Jrue Holiday, namely that he was the guy who took over every time the Celtics seemed to need someone to take over. They then talk about Brown’s growth and compare him to the two guys taken before him in the NBA Draft (Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram).

Finally, the guys talk about the offseason decisions facing both the Celtics and the Mavericks and wonder about the path each team will have to navigate if they want to return to the NBA Finals next season.
