Celtics’ Joe Mazzulla Compares Pacers to Media: ‘They Create a Lot of Noise’

Joe Mazzulla had choice words after the Celtics swept the Pacers.


The Boston Celtics swept through the Eastern Conference finals to advance to the NBA Finals last night. Without Tyrese Haliburton in the final two games due to a hamstring injury, the Indiana Pacers fought admirably, but Boston had too many weapons.



When the final buzzer sounded, Celtics star, Jayson Tatum, launched the ball into the air in jubilation. He and his squad held off all eastern conference challengers for a chance to hoist the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.



In his Game 4 postgame press conference, Joe Mazzulla seemed to fire shots at the media and the Pacers with a quote that could be taken in many directions. While some reporters laughed, Mazzulla sat straight-faced and never cracked a smile.



This quote referenced the Celtics’ ability to limit an elite Pacers’ offense to just 19 fourth-quarter points. However, right after saying this, Mazzulla acknowledged Boston forced Indiana into tough shots. Even with great defense against them, Indiana kept the game close the whole way. Neither team held a double-digit lead in the contest. Mazzulla seemed to respect the Pacers’ fight in that regard.



At the end of Game 3, Pacers head coach, Rick Carlisle, ran a unique out-of-bounds play, and the Celtics did not “decipher what [was] true.” The Pacers had all four players start behind halfcourt and run into the frontcourt. Doug McDermott and Aaron Nesmith crossed paths, freeing the latter with a fading open three from the near corner.



However, the shot bounced off the rim, giving Boston a narrow 114-111 victory. Both games at Gainbridge Fieldhouse ended in a three-point spread, showing Indiana’s “never say die” attitude throughout the series.
