“The difference was that they just got into them,” said Gary Payton Sr. of the Dubs and what caused such radically different outcomes between Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals series between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors after Game 2. “They got into them and made them make turnovers.”

Celtics broadcaster and alumnus Cedric Maxwell felt the need to answer Payton — whose son Gary II helped force some of those turnovers — regarding Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green’s controversial play in Game 2. “Let me just say this to you, and I am going to be as clear as I can,” said Maxwell. “That (expletive) Draymond was doing? During the 1980s, he’d (have) got knocked the (expletive) out.”

Both Payton and Maxwell weighed in on the Warriors’ Game 2 win after the dust had settled at Chase Center Sunday — check out the clip embedded below to hear more of what they had to say about the series-tying victory for the Dubs.
