Boston is now on the verge of making NBA history by becoming the first team to ever come back and win a series after trailing 3–0. Only three other teams have ever even tied a series up after such a start, but none were able to get the job done.
Fans and media alike on Twitter had plenty to say after the game, ranging from criticisms of Jimmy Butler to praise of White and the Celtics for battling back from their 3–0 deficit.
