After the Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, most thought they would cruise through the series against the eighth-seeded Miami Heat. But, that hasn’t been the case, and the Celtics are now down 2–0, thanks in part to Grant Williams

So favored were the Boston Celtics that ESPN gave them a 97% chance to win the series using their analytics.

But, after a game 1 in which the Miami Heat shot the lights out, the Celtics faced a must-win game at home in game 2. And, for awhile, it looked like they would even up the series, and held a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter.

For some reason, Celtics reserve guard Grant Williams decided to antagonize the biggest dog in the league, Jimmy Butler.

What are you doing, Grant Williams?

Naturally, the Heat went on a 24-9 run to take control of the game immediately after that. And, Butler was hitting big shot after big shot.

And, everyone is bashing Grant Williams for the Celtics loss.

The Celtics and Grant Williams will try to save their season and avoid going down 3-0 in Miami on Sunday.
