The Celtics can do this. They have earned our trust.

In the biggest game of their season, the Celtics had heart, poise, resolve, short memories, and absolutely no fear of the moment.

And now they have a Game 7.

Jayson Tatum and Giannis Antetokounmpo engaged in a duel reminiscent of 2008 LeBron James/Paul Pierce and 1988 Dominique Wilkins/Larry Bird, and it the Celtics’ ascending superstar who was left standing after their 108-95 victory Friday night in Game 6 of this already epic Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Tatum scored 46 points, including 16 on 5-of-7 shooting in the fourth quarter when he held the defending champion Bucks at bay with an array of swished 3-pointers and plastic-man drives to the hoop.
