22/40 since Jan. 4th. .550.
Would love to see Hayward do anything but stand in the corner
Gordo looking like crapo again.
75% since noon. Suck it, Hornacek.
Keith Smith noted this on Twitter but even though he isn't scoring well tonight, his cut on that Rozier miss from deep drew the defenders away from Terry. His scoring and defense are inconsistent but his ball-handling, passing and the small things like those cuts still help the team.
just joining in, close one huh?
I guess the question is whether or not the little things he's doing well are enough to make up for the big things he's doing so inconsistently (if not badly).
Bayneshogan shutting down Big Spain
Jesus, this is ugly.
Well, if this game is showing one thing, it's that it's hard to beat a team that's shooting 52% from three.
I like JJJ a lot but he's already getting calls that the rest of the Celtics can only dream of.
Alfred J Horford
they should still put this out, but hey look, another quarter of defensive ineptitude is the reason it's close.
Celtics have 9 guys with at least 18 minutes in this game.
We need to win these games, and at some point, Brad needs to just play the guys that are playing well. We'll probably pull this one out, but if we lose, it's because we let them hang around in order to make sure everyone got their minutes. I hope to God he isn't still doing this come playoff time.
4pts for Gasol, injured?
Al completely burnt on a give and go...
Average NBA margin of victory this season is ~ four points
Your boy, Yabu and Al
The guy threw up a prayer after getting minimal contact... you're calling that getting burnt?
edit: he's also leaning because he's trying to help on the mismatch down low there... guy has been slow, but that wasn't completely his fault.
He's missed 4 3's, all of which were pretty much wide open. He does have 10 assists, 10 rebounds and is a +8.
Gasol has thankfully looked bad this game. Whatever disparaging we want to say about anyone on the Celtics, they haven't looked as bad as Gasol.
But is 1-10 from the field. The Celtics have collectively shut him down.
And here comes 0 for 6 Tatum. Well, he has to hit sooner or later.
Yeah, what a weird line for Gasol.
Umm, yes. He easily got the pass back, and got fouled while shooting.
Clinical. He is a clinician
Jackson basically never leaves the paint on offense.
JJJ is really damn good already
Great pass by Tatum. Loved that.
Nice. Big basket.
Tatum with the anti kobe move!!
Al's old man push shot almost always goes in.
That pass was lovely.
If there was no such thing as a Doncic, I'd be hard pressed not to vote for him for ROY over Ayton.
Horford and Baynes on the court at the same time
Thatta boy Brad
Right.. but Horford has to cheat there to help on the mismatch... but when you say burnt .. the guy had a contested shot that was pure luck that it went in...
edit: meaning Al actually helped on D and got back on D.
Agreed. I also agree that he hangs in the paint a lot but damn is he a strong player down there.
Kyrie is amazing tonight.
When ki11 is healthy he is kind of awesome
Come on. Someone has to see Kyrie trapped there and call timeout (assuming they have any).
Marcus fucking Smart
Nice win. Memphis probably played as well as they could and it wasn't enough.
Baynes has 13 boards (7 offensive) and 3 blocks, and is +21 in 23 minutes.
Every time KI throws himself around for a play my heart stops. I love you man, but think of my anxiety.
benhogan will most definitely need to call his doctor in a few hours
Amazing as Kyrie is, it’s still disconcerting he needs to be the one to save our bacon against such a mediocre team.
