"The Celtics, with last night's win, are one win away from their third NBA Finals in five years.
Some would say the Big Three were never expected to have this long of a shelf life, and as Ray Allen admitted on several occasions this season, all bets are off this summer when his and Kevin Garnett's contracts expire.

Can you go to battle with him?' That's the unknown. But you know what you have in your locker room, and to walk away from that is tough. Every night we give ourselves a 60 percent chance of winning or greater. That's what we all came here for, and you don't want to give that away."
