While following the Boston Celtics for a full season around the league, you can imagine how much trouble the editors and ESPN producers have of trying to fit stuff into five short episodes of television. Thankfully, the fine folks at the NBA has started releasing part of this treasure chest of footage in deleted scenes from the next and highly anticipated episode of The Association which airs tomorrow night at 7 pm as a nice warmup to the Pacers game.
We’ll start with footage of postgame in Golden State, the last time this year’s original squad was there together. After winning in Oracle Arena for the first time in eight years, Doc Rivers presents a pop quiz to his squad about what was the C’s starting lineup last time they escaped Oakland with a victory. Major CelticsHub bonus points for anyone who can name the starters of said team in the comments. I found this to be easily the most entertaining scene of the bunch.
Mike James? Vin Baker? Remember these names next time we lose it when this team loses a back-to-back.
