    Two wins in a row, getting healthier, and hopefully turning the corner. Still struggling to get what we need from Jaylen, Gordon and of course, Terry, but Kyrie looks like the top 10 NBA player that he is, Big Al is the stabilizing force, MaMo is playing like an all star, etc.

    Now let's beat the referee-aided, painfully awful to watch, flopping piece of crap that is James Harden. Don't let Capela go crazy inside, guard the 3 point line and we should win easily. Get it done.

    I don’t think the game thread can handle the Celtics playing James Harden.

    Regurgitate the Rockets! Looking forward to seeing the Agent of Chaos jam up Harden physically and mentally.

    Best record in league over last 13 games. Smart versus Harden tonight. Can't wait. One of them is getting tee'd up.

    Celtics twitter is strong... Mention of Harden possibly sitting out due to a calf strain people reply with gif of Marcus Smart shaking his head. Ha ha ha.

    TL needs to get some run against Capela tonight. It will be like looking into a future mirror for him.

    Trying to mentally prepare myself for the 3-4 totally bullshit calls Smart is going to pick up defending him. I hate Harden's game so much.

    TL is out with a sore left leg. Not sure how you can be sore if you're not playing but there you go.

    I love the TNT studio show and Charles Barkley so much, even if he never picks the Celtics.

    At this point the not-picking is a feature, not a bug.

    I see that Al is wearing a knee brace tonight. He's looking like an old man.

    Tatum has 2 shots--both long contested twos. Granted one was late in clock.

    Do any of our guys follow their 3 for a rebound? Smart could have had that board had he not been admiring it.

    Horford looks like he could use some more time off. Moving like Robert Parish out there.

    Going to call it now: Kyrie is starting to hunt his 3 pointer the way he was last year post-ASB prior to the injury. The next couple months could get fun.

    Patellar tendinitis turning into patellofemoral pain syndrome is not a good thing for Horford.

    Tatum is a more talented version of last year’s Mook Morris. Pounds the ball into the floor looking for his shot in isolation instead of quickly making the right pass.

    Both feet obviously moving so that he could be 'set' in front of Tatum...

    Harden usually goes like 4/11 from 3 in a game. Tonight will be the night he goes 12/16 or something.

    Was he? Thought he stepped clear but not sure on the feet being set.

    Im sure Harden will get a similar call against though

    I thought on the replay at least half his right foot was inside the circle when contact was made. His feet were definitely moving as he was trying to get out of the circle to take the charge.

    He has a lot to think about now that his role is more than "take three open 3s a game and drive closeouts." It takes time. He'll be fine.

    Feet weren't set, but he was outside the circle.

    If Smart is going to be on the floor, I'd really like to see him guarding Harden over Gordon. Just saying.

    I think he keeps getting switched off is the problem.
