Maybe the Boston Celtics win Game 4 of these Eastern Conference finals, maybe they go home and clinch the series in Game 5. The Celtics — who shot 39.2 percent from the floor, 27.3 percent from 3-point range and never led in Saturday’s 116-86 drubbing — couldn’t play worse than they did in Game 3. When LeBron’s teammates show up, the Cavs are unbeatable — in the Eastern Conference, anyway.

The whole family has stayed relatively under the radar—by Kardashian standards, in any case—in the wake of True’s birth and the all-too-public revelations about Thompson’s alleged infidelity both in the week leading up to his daughter’s birth and last fall.
