    This one looks tough -- second of a back-to-back, on the road against a well-rested team that's not quite the pushover we're used to as of late: ATL is 8-7 over their last 15 with wins against Denver; the Sixers in Philly; and OKC 142-126 at home last Tuesday. If the C's pull off the win, it'll be huge before they face Miami Monday to avenge their recent loss against the Heat.

    Hayward stayed home. His wife is due to give birth.

    Schedule loss? Or a game they should win?

    Get your votes in now. I vote it's a game they should win anyway.

    Felger is going to be outraged.

    They should win.

    7pt favorites in Vegas, but since most games are decided by 4pts that will be the difference (thought I'd stir that pot early)

    Celtics 116-112

    Daddy's Always Happy needed the day off anyways

    Should win. I think they'll focus harder after the last Miami B2B.

    Oh great. Huerter is the Hawks lead piper. He seems to relish lighting up the Cs

    It's been said before, but it certainly bears repeating: FUCK Felger

    Meanwhile, the incomparable JAY$ON TATUM!

    Brutal start. Hawks have 3 layups/dunks.

    I've had a tougher time running a hot knife through soft butter than the Hawks are having getting to the rim.

    Horford didn't even try to challenge Bembry. Embarrassing.

    This is what happens when the team is tired and unfocused. The rotations are slow and they close out late to every shooter. Brad should have pulled everybody after the first 2 minutes--it was obvious they weren't giving full effort.

    How is the team 6-3 against the top 4 in the East? Like, shouldn’t they have figured out by now that they have to show up even against mediocre teams if they want to win?

    It's funny that Brad had to wait 4:30 to realize a timeout was needed.

    Playing the long game...if they play bad teams like this, they'll only face top 4 teams in the playoffs.

    1. Game isn't over yet though they look really rough early on.
    2. B2Bs are tough and as lovetgm notes, its likely why they look rough.

    Put some fresh legs in, Brad. Put Williams in. Get some energy in there.

    Never heard Gorman call out a Celtics team this much for lack of effort in 30 years.

    Jaylen taking a deep three early in the clock. That is awful.

    I cannot stand Huerter torching the Cs again. Painful. Dude averages 9 PPG for the season and already has seven in the first quarter.

    My wife laughed out loud when she saw Huerter show up on the screen. We’ve decided he couldn’t convince a chick in a bar he’s an NBA player if he had her Google him... just makes watching him light the Celtics up all the more painful...

    I mean, sure, they're tired, we get it. But the team also needs to show more mental toughness--they look like they came out and decided they were going to lose. The defensive effort in the first 3 minutes was beyond a joke--that's what mentally checked out looks like.

    Anyone here this Ken Berger rumor of Brad Beal to Boston for Jaylen, either Morris or Baynes, and a pick? Of course the trade doesn't work money wise, but if the Wiz are willing to deal, would Ainge be willing to trade Hayward and a bunch of the draft picks?
