Barkley Says He’d Rather Watch Pens-Senators Game 7 Than The Celtics Get Blown Out (VIDEO)
After stealing Game 3 in Cleveland to push the Eastern Conference Finals to at least a 5th game, the Boston Celtics dropped Game 4 before allowing the Cavaliers to go off for 43 first-quarter points at TD Garden in Game 5.
At the half, the Cavs had 75 points and led by 18 over the Celtics.
Charles Barkley had seen enough.
During the halftime report, Barkley stated he would rather watch the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators Game 7 in the NHL than watch the Boston Celtics lose by a ton and get eliminated.
