BOSTON — The Celtics are young and long and athletic, and en route to a 2-1 lead in these NBA Finals, they have made the Warriors look downright old.

The Warriors won Game 2 with old-man strength — that deftly-placed weight that catches a young, inexperienced team off guard.

But the Celtics countered by beating down the Dubs in every possible way in Game 3.

There have been moments — flashes of the Warriors matching Boston’s impressive ability to run and jump, but those moments have been too far between.

There is an obvious move for the Warriors to make heading into Game 4 on Friday:

Counter youth with youth.

Specifically, play Jonathan Kuminga.

In fact, I would start him.
