The Boston Celtics won three games in a row.
They even got one of the most legendary game-winning shots this game has ever seen, shifting all momentum back in their favor as they entered Game 7 as a 7.5-point home favorite.
That’s why Charles Barkley couldn’t believe it after they were blown out by the Miami Heat again, going as far as to call them one of the most inconsistent talented teams he’s been around in his life.
That’s right on point, and Chuck couldn’t have said it better: You never know how they’re going to play.
"I'm not shocked they won the game. I'm shocked they won by 20"

It happened to them in the regular season and then again vs. the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers over and over, and then obviously vs. the Miami Heat.
Barkley pointed out that they have two All-NBA players, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, and a former Defensive Player of the Year, and yet they can’t seem to get the job done.
And as much as Chuck wasn’t surprised to see the Heat win this game, he was shocked to see that they won by that big of a margin.
There’s no way to explain what happens to this Celtics team.
It’s the same thing over and over, regardless of the coach or the supporting cast.
Plenty of people will once again urge them to blow the roster up and separate their All-NBA duo.
And truth be told, it might be the only thing left to try at this point.NEXT: Jaylen Brown Gives His Honest Opinion About Joe Mazzulla
