PBT Extra: LeBron, Cavaliers even series but Celtics far from dead

The Celtics shouldn't panic after losing two games in Cleveland and Kurt Helin is still sticking with his prediction of Celtics over Cavs in seven.

If you want to make the case that the Cleveland Cavaliers are in the driver’s seat of the Eastern Conference Finals after sweeping two games at home, you’re in a good space. It’s a best-of-three and Cleveland has the best player on the planet on their side.

However, I still like the Celtics to hold on and win in seven.

I get into it in this PBT Extra, but the Celtics looked like a team that figured things out in the final three quarters of Game 4 (they just couldn’t make up for a disastrous first quarter), and they still have two games at home.

Either way, this feels like a series going the distance.
