While some saw a glass half empty in the Boston Celtics needing a Jayson Tatum buzzer-beating layup to secure their 115 – 114 Game 1 win over the Brooklyn Nets to kick off their 2022 NBA Playoffs first-round matchup with their Atlantic Division rivals, others came away with the glass half full perspective.

Yes, it did take a near-perfect late-game execution for Boston to reclaim the lead before securing the improbable victory when time expired, but the Celtics were in control of the game for large chunks of it despite playing less than their best basketball for the majority of the contest.

Such is the perspective of NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg and Celtics broadcaster and alumnus Cedric Maxwell in a recent conversation with Phil Perry about the series moving forward.

Watch the clip embedded above to hear what the trio have to say about Nets – Celtics Game 2 and beyond.
