If Game 7 between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors is half as intense as Game 6, we’re in for a treat on Friday, Sept. 11. The game will be live streamed on Hulu or Sling.
The Raptors and Celtics — who played for 58 minutes in Game 6 before Toronto found a way to extend its season to Friday — both had the day off Thursday.
The Celtics likely weren’t thrilled when the NBA’s Last 2 Minute Report — a review of calls late in close games — was released Thursday. The league said two non-calls ended up going against the Celtics at crucial times in Game 6.
Kemba Walker’s driving layup attempt with the game tied at 98-98 should have led to a foul call with about 3.4 seconds left in regulation, the league said. Walker missed the shot and ended up on the floor; no foul was called.
So, Game 7 should have plenty of drama.
The game is set for 8 p.M. (9 p.M. ET) and will be live streamed on Hulu, which is offering a one-week free trial. You can also stream the game with Sling. TNT will have the television broadcast.
