    No more losing. One win at a time, starting tonight.


    How about some Jo Jo mojo...

    Platitude about how being on the road could help the team come together

    Platitude about how Isaiah getting the chance to go home will have him ready to go

    Platitude about how all they need is that first win

    Declaration that said first win will occur tonight

    Closing line accompanied by exclamatory vulgarity to provoke feelings of vigorous excitement and the implication of being fed up with the current status quo, rhetorically fashioned in such a way as to insinuate that anyone who feels differently will be viewed henceforth through scorn-colored glasses.

    This team has been infuriating at times, but mostly really fun to watch this year. The run isn't ready to stop and it's time to get back to fun basketball. Horford will show up bigly. IT and Marcus will make up and combine to flip off Chicago as best buds. Hell, Marcus might even hit a shot. Jae will antagonize the fuck out of the bulls and return to form. Win.

    Edit: basically what Jed said!

    They are a much better team than what they have shown last two games. There still is a chance to turn this series around. It starts tonight.

    Perfect night for a sports bar: Celtics, Bruins and Sox is nearly sports overload.

    If Butler did it, then I want him more than ever.

    He's been right up there with Lopez (and "Can't Miss" Portis) as their best player in this series, and he's been disruptive as shit on defense. Time for the back court to step up.

    How does this effect on-court strategy for both teams?

    Rondo was incredibly disruptive, hopefully it frees up the perimeter and lessens the pressure to rebound. Lopez obviously is the main culprit, but rondo was averaging 8.5 a game this series.

    I hope everyone in here can account for their whereabouts for the last couple of days.

    I was at game 2, where the damage was done. That's all I've got to say on the matter.

    This is good boarding.

    I will miss Rondo and hate that he got hurt. Celtics should win or lose against a healthy Rondo. It was a great story.

    I love Rondo and hope he is OK but I will NOT miss him this postseason.

    Loved Rajon when he was our asshole, loathed him in this series, but big props for his game. Bulls now have a big hole to fill, IT doesn't have a much to worry about with him out .... win/win/win!

    His TS% is a paltry .75% in this series so far, Portis is sitting at a cool 1.00. Regression - Rondo = a W tonight.

    I fucking love regression to the mean. Let it be so for Steph Lopez as well.

    Amir was a statue and didn't play at all in the 2nd half on Tuesday. He's useless at this point so are you going to plug in Olynyk? No because you lose the offensive spark off the bench he's provided. Zeller? No. They need some outside shooting and Green could give this.

    It's okay in the sense that he just has to track Mirotic around the perimeter on D, but overall I feel this is a terrible, terrible decision. They need to play better offense to win this series, not pass to Gerald and pray his shots go in. And despite what I said about tracking Mirotic, he's an awful defensive player. Scary stuff.

    Length and athleticism that are only ever used for dunking.

    This is silly. He's a bad player.

    I know he has been shaky, but if we are dusting off Gerald Green - I would rather they start Jaylen Brown. At this point I would prefer he get more playoff reps, as that is more important than trying to win this series.

    Something must be going on there, JJ should be getting minutes this series with nothing too worrisome on the matchup front.
