Game 7 is here at 9 p.m. EST tonight. What means more with one neutral site game remaining, the Celtics’ blowout wins in Game 1 and 5, or Toronto’s late game exploits in Games 3 and 6?

The Celtics and Raptors both expended their starters for more than 50 minutes less than 48 hours ago in a NBA Playoff classic. Stamina and recovery will play a factor, particularly for Serge Ibaka who played hurt on Thursday, though that game came down to Toronto’s small ball lineup versus the Celtics starters.

Are Refs to Blame for Celtics Game 6 loss?

The Celtics and Raptors Game 6 packed plenty of drama including a few controversial calls by the referees down the stretch. From the no-call on a Kemba Walkers last second layup, to a timeout awarded to the Raptors in the closing seconds of regulation.

The Celtics found themselves on the wrong side of the whistle more than once. But are the refs really to blame for the Celtics inability to close out the series?
