Richard Jefferson had a bold prediction on Thursday afternoon.
Jefferson predicted that the Boston Celtics would be the first team in NBA history to come back from 0-3 down in a playoff series.
“It’s going to be Boston. Boston is going to be the first team to come back,” Jefferson said.
Richard Jefferson says the Nuggets will face the Celtics in the Finals:
“It’s going to be Boston. Boston is going to be the first team to come back (from 0-3)”

NBA fans have been telling Jefferson to keep dreaming ever since he said it.
“This pretty much guarantees that it’s going to be Miami,” one tweet read.

“Stop it with this reverse psychology. Charles Barkley doomed the Celtics in the first 3 games. Only Boston win was when Barkley said the Heat would win and sweep,” another tweet read.
