Shaughnessy, Dan. “It Felt As If They Were Playing for Playoff Lives”. Boston Globe. May 10, 2022. Front page of the sports section in the print edition. Front page on line with updated headline: “A fourth quarter for the ages, a legendary dunk from Al Horford, and the Celtics-Bucks series is all even“.

Surf and Celtics- Boston Globe coverage

“I didn’t make out what he said,” humble Horford acknowledged after the game, “but the way he looked at me didn’t sit well with me. That got me going. At that point, something switched with me.”

In the already famous fourth, Horford postered Giannis with a dunk to tie the game, 80-80. Big Al drew a well-deserved technical for his antics, but nobody cared. Momentum had shifted and the Celtics were running downhill to victory.

Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum gravity defying, Cirque du Soleil athleticism is something else! Star Jaylen Brown’s steady cool. The TEAM is so impressive!

Fittingly, the surf’s been roaring all week. Celtics heart wave!
