Peter Vecsey: @PeterVecsey1:
Otto Porter in the starting lineup gives the Celtics five guys they’ve got to guard versus four with Looney. Baloney gives the Warriors everything Draymond Green thinks he gives them… – 9:10 PM:

Tas Melas: @TasMelas:
In Game 4 of the 2015 Finals, down 2-1, the Warriors sat Andrew Bogut and went to their “Death Lineup” with Draymond Green at center. That lineup with Iggy had a lot more experience than tonight’s with Porter Jr. – 9:00 PM:
