In the video above, ESPN analyst Tim Legler previews tonight’s matchup between the Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder (7 p.m. on ESPN and ESPN3). In a nutshell, Leger doesn’t think the Thunder has the maturity to beat a team like the Celtics on the road.
“The Celtics will beat the Thunder if they are committed defensively the way that they normally are and they don’t allow isolation basketball beat them,” Legler explains. “The Oklahoma City Thunder don’t move the basketball, change sides of the floor with it, and be committed themselves to a great defensive effort. The Celtics should be able to get this win.”
