    All these pacers fan salty they lost without oladipo but if Smart wasn’t injured and dipo wasn’t the Celtics still would’ve swept

      If the Pacers had Oladipo this series would have been a sweep the other way around don’t @ me

        Aaron Carr Oladipo is a better defender than smart, and he plays well against Boston except for like 1 game he’s had tremendous games against Boston since he has been in Indiana

          I'm a Pacers fan and I was salty about this video at first but yeah it's facts though. Pacers were pissing me off cause they should've been at least 3-1 by the 4 games, but absolute stupid mistakes and easy shots missed causes us to win. Also the fact we couldn't guard Kyrie and ESPECIALLY cause we COULDN'T PLAY FOUR FULL QUARTERS

            Anyone notice Hayward's hand during the play where he scores? He slightly pushes Turner up towards Brown as Brown moves away from the baseline. Seems like Turner thought it was a teammate pushing him to go guard Brown.

                    pretty much impossible for IND to beat BOS without their best player.

                                I love watching these videos, but you gotta figure out how to do your advertising without disrupting the flow of your content man. Every time you have a cheesy line leading to some ad I get thrown off. Other than that, great stuff.

                                      Love your stuff coach, but doesn't pay out their winners. Their rollover requirements before you can pull out cash are unrealistic, they reserve the right to freeze your account if they deem your wagers to be anything more than "recreational". Scumbags

                                            So basically Indiana can blame Bojan Bogdanovic for this one.
