The Boston Celtics beat the Golden State Warriors handily in Game 1 of the 2022 NBA Finals despite their All-NBA forward Jayson Tatum having an off night on the offensive end of the floor, going 3-of-17 from the field. That happened in large part because of the team’s other key players stepping up and hitting the open shots closed off to Tatum by the Dubs defense.

After Golden State lost, several members of the team downplayed the seriousness of the loss both in the postgame press conference and in podcasts after they’d had some more time to reflect on things — could Draymond Green and company have a point, or are they covering their collective posteriors?

For at least some analysts, it would be the latter. Included in that camp are NBC Sports Boston broadcasters (and Celtics alumni, full disclosure) Eddie House and Brian Scalabrine.

On a recent episode of the “Early Edition” show hosted by Trenni Kusnierek, the trio debated the merits of the Warriors’ take on the loss, and more.
