Mitchell stops singing “We Want Boston” after the Cavs’ Game 7 win

Mitchell stops singing “We Want Boston” after the Cavs’ Game 7 win

Donovan Mitchell made a bold statement, not with his points, but with his plea to the fans. After a thrilling 106-94 win over the Orlando Magic in Game 7, Mitchell urged the crowd not to chant “We want Boston.” This despite the high emotions swirling in the arena.

Mitchell’s spectacular 39-point performance was crucial in overturning an 18-point first-half deficit. This is how we keep the Cavaliers’ season alive. However, as the match neared its end, the fans began their loud chanting. Then Mitchell gestured for silence. His action spoke volumes about the respect he has for the upcoming challenge against the Boston Celtics. After all, they finished the regular season with the NBA’s best record: 64-18.

This matchup reignites a fierce rivalry that dates back to the LeBron James era, when the Celtics were often seen as the Cavaliers’ main opponents. Today, the dynamic has changed, as Boston’s young stars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown face a Cleveland team widely considered the underdog.

Mitchell’s gesture reflects not only his leadership, but also his awareness of the enormous task ahead. His call for humility and focus resonates as the Cavaliers prepare to take on a formidable Boston squad in what promises to be a gripping series.
