Did the Boston Celtics’ late lapses in Game 5 of their East semis series with the Milwaukee Bucks rob them of a promising run deep into the 2022 NBA playoffs? Jawing at the referees, playing ISO ball, and falling back into the same habits that made the first half of the 2021-22 Celtics season painful to watch came back to haunt Boston at the worst possible moment.

Now, the team finds itself in a position where it will have to win two games in a row and the first of the pair on the road as the series heads back to Wisconsin. Just how big of a botched fourth quarter was it for the Celtics on Wednesday?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Bob Ryan and Jeff Goodman” podcast debated how much regret the team ought to feel if they don’t find a way to win the series in a recent episode.

In it, Gary Tanguay and the two eponymous hosts take a look around the rest of the league’s landscape as well.
