The Celtics are on the verge of their eighteenth NBA championship

Dallas- Joe Mazzulla is a big fan of UFC games and blends fight highlights into some of the basketball movies he shows the Boston Celtics for his video sessions.

It is not done for entertainment purposes or to make players laugh. He does it for a simple reason. He wants the Celtics to have a fighter’s mentality.

“If you’ve ever been in a fight with someone and you think you’re about to beat them, they usually punch you.”said Mazzulla, the Celtics’ second-year coach. “The closer you are to defeating them, the closer you are to losing.”

Translation: I wanted the Celtics to be ready to fight. And in Game Three of the NBA Finals, against the Dallas Mavericks, they were.

A couple of big runs – 23-8 in the first half, 20-5 in the second half – represented what became the knockout blow in this game, and perhaps in this series. Boston blew almost all of what was a 21-point lead before winning 106-99 to take a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals, moving within one victory of what would be its record 18th championship.
