Celtics Must Match Cavaliers’ Intensity to Come Out on Top in Game 5

Celtics Must Match Cavaliers' Intensity to Come Out on Top in Game 5 The Boston Celtics pulled off an impressive victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday to knot the series at two apiece.

Dana Barros stopped by SportsDesk to give his three keys to victory in the crucial Game 5 in Cleveland on Tuesday.

“We must get out to a good start,” Barros said. “The crowd is going to be into it … we must come out and meet that intensity.”

Barros covers the need to play lockdown defense, keeping the Cavs under a total of 90 points. A tall order to be sure, but one that would assure victory.

The final key is finishing the game out — something the C’s did not do in Game 1. Playing the entire 48 minutes for a team that has “been a great road team all year,” according to Barros,” is what it will take to go up 3-2 in the series.
