Boston Celtics make Charles Barkley eat his words after defeating the Golden State Warriors
Many have doubted the Boston Celtics this year despite their miraculous win streak.
Among those people is TNT analyst Charles Barkley, who made it clear during last night's broadcast that he does not think much of the team that currently holds the best record in the NBA.
"They're not going to beat the Golden State Warriors, and they are not going to hold the Golden State Warriors to 94 points. I promise you that," said Chuck during the pre-game commentary. This was before the Celtics not only defeated the reigning champs, but also only allowed them to score mere 88 points.

Other disparaging comments hurled at the Celtics by Barkley at halftime included "how in the world has this team won 13 straight games?" And "I'm not sure they can beat Toronto or Washington." Obviously Sir Charles was not paying attention when the Celtics defeated the Raptors on Sunday without Kyrie Irving, but that is another story.
After the game, Barkley was singing a different tune.
