The NBA Playoffs are where legendary commentary calls are made. A big name that comes into mind whenever a history-altering shot finds it way to the bottom of the net is Mike Breen. This sportscaster knows how to craft stories and insane moments with just a few words. Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics' legacy were the latest beneficiaries of it. While it came at the expense of the Indiana Pacers, Nick Wright posits that there was something cheap about hearing a certain call.

Did Jaylen Brown deserve Mike Breen's call?

Avid spectators and players know when a moment is worthy of Mike Breen's ‘Bang!' It usually comes out when a clutch shot sinks in the basket and it is paired with a really good storyline. Jaylen Brown hit one to tie the game up against the Pacers. The Celtics star got a historic double bang which is seldom used. Nick Wright took notice and could not let this moment slide at all.

“This game did *not* deserve a double “Bang”, feels like it cheapens the history, to be honest,” he wrote on X.

What type of moments receive a double bang from Mike Breen? Well, let's start to recall some of them. Julius Randle got one for a go-ahead game-sealing three-pointer after getting hounded by Tyler Herro and Jimmy Butler. Luka Doncic had that same honor bestowed on his career. This was after a buzzer-beater three in Game 4 of the 1st round against the Los Angeles Clippers back in 2020.

The most legendary snippet of history accompanied by the sweet vocals of Mike Breen's double bang had to have been the one with Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors legend hit a shot from deep to shut the doors on any possible comeback from the Oklahoma City Thunder. Everyone took notice of the elite sharpshooter since then because his career skyrocketed.

Whether it's this moment from Jaylen Brown or any Celtics player, the intensity of the moment in the NBA Playoffs is what will make the commentator exclaim those words. So, it really is up to Breen. His considerations will be taken over public opinion to decide whether or not a moment deserves those two big words.

Celtics edge out the Pacers

It was two squads with haymakers on offense that faced off in this penultimate round of the NBA Playoffs. The Celtics got the early edge but then the Pacers steadily clawed themselves back in the first quarter. Joe Mazzulla's rotation eventually grew thin over time while Rick Carlisle had everyone popping off.

In the end, all five of the Celtics' starters played more than 42 minutes. Every single one of the starting five managed to record 15 points in this contest. There is a stark contrast between both of these squads. The Pacers, on the other hand, had seven players record double-digit scoring numbers.

Talent outshined depth in this game. Hopefully, the Celtics are able to find more answers such that they do not get famished easily. Otherwise, consequences like fatigue and injuries could haunt them down the line.
