Boston Celtics one win from NBA Finals after Game 3 comeback against Indiana Pacers

The NBA Finals is due to start June 6 in Boston.

Okay, so the Finals definitely start June 6. The Boston Celtics part is premature

If you do not  feel comfortable cementing the Boston Celtics in the Finals now that they’re up 3-0 against the depleted Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals, at least pencil them in.

No team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series in the NBA playoffs, and of the 154 times a team has trailed 3-0, it has forced a Game 7 just four times.

Not only are the odds against the Pacers, reality is against them, too. The Celtics are the best team in the East and have the most talented roster among the four teams in the conference finals.

That doesn’t guarantee the Celtics another title. There are questions, to be sure, and Saturday’s come-from-behind victory left Celtics skeptics with one eyebrow askew.

But they’re just one victory from their second Finals appearance in three seasons.
