The Boston Celtics fell 0-3 in the series to the Miami Heat and things are looking rather grim.

Game 3 was a bit of an embarrassing performance for Boston, as Miami controlled the contest nearly all the way through.

Things went from bad to worse though, as Shaq and Charles Barkley couldn’t help but troll the Celtics after the game.

First, O’Neal hit Boston with a solid jab. Many claim the Celtics “quit” in the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s game. So, Shaq couldn’t help but ask if he, Charles Barkley, and the rest of the TNT Halftime crew can quit too.

Ouch. That certainly doesn’t feel good for any Boston fans. Especially after losing the way they did.

But then Charles Barkley had a joke of his own during the postgame show. The crew brought Gabe Vincent to the set after erupting for 29 points.

The Heat guard was giving Boston some props, stating, “They’re a really good team, they’re a well-coached team.”

That’s when Charles Barkley made a statement that had everyone on set laughing.

The honesty and humor is why everyone loves Shaq and Charles Barkley with the TNT Halftime crew.

Not many analysts will call out a team like that and still make if hilarious. But Shaq and Chuck are a rare breed.

Miami is just one win away from playing for the title.

Meanwhile, Boston now must win four games in a row to advance to the NBA Finals. However, that’s a feat no team in league history has ever accomplished.

Tune into Game 4 on Thursday night to see if the Heat can close out the series.
