As many are doing around the game, Barros raved about the sensational play of point guard Rajon Rondo and his mad dash, going to the floor to corral a loose ball and dropping it into the basket for two points.
“Right now, Rondo really just basically showed what the whole tone of the series has been,” Barros told Jade McCarthy.
Barros also spoke about how the team remembers 2009, when the Celtics lost a best-of-seven series to the Magic despite holding a 3-2 lead. With the same core of the club, the Celtics were playing golf a year after hoisting the NBA Finals trophy.
“They understand how big this is,” Barros said of the Green’s prime opportunity to advance to the Finals.
The Celtics get their first chance at the opportunity Monday in Game 4.
“The crowd and everything is going to be bananas,” Barros said eagerly. Click on the video to hear more.
