I am going to go out on a limb and say it's within the rules to start a thread for the next game now, considering technically the game with the Bucks should have happened already.

Please vent on how miserable you are with no NBA here - hopefully in 30 days we will be able to use this for an actual game.

Here's mine: This time of year, the first thing I think when I wake up in the morning is if there is a Celtics game. The last two mornings have really sucked realizing that there are no games.

Day 2 with no basketball.
The mood is somber and the heavens have opened up to commiserate. The shakes have started, but I know the worst is yet to arrive. Soon I will start to see magnificent visions of Jayson Tatum posterizing Lebron James before they turn into morbid depictions of Gordon Hayward's ankle shatter from every angle. If you're reading this... please make Rudy Gobert pay.

Which one of you used a cursed monkey paw to wish that Kemba and Kanter had some time off to heal up?

We were all asking for some injury luck - well here it is! Sacrificing our entertainment to get ready for the playoffs

What the fuck is Mark Jackson talking about? I can’t believe this crew calls all of the best NBA games.

I know he feels he needs to be a scorer when everyone else is being passive, but Smarf really need to learn to dampen his enthusiasms when he has the Jays running hot.

Smarf needs be stapled to the bench! And Wanamaker needs to guard the five at the end of games. Its painfully apparent from this match-up.

Jaylen shakes, he bakes... oh no, he has reinjured his hamstring. He'll be out for weeks this time.

This team just needs to add a big man who can defend and hit 3s and a backup point guard with good range and who can guard speedy 1s, and they would be contenders for the East.

As usual, Stevens is not yelling at the refs and the Celtics are not getting to the line enough. Probably will cost the Celtics the game when all is said and done.

Also Semi can’t hit an open three. Why the hell does he have a spot on this roster anyway?

Yeah, Semi needs to be shot into the sun...

Ojeleye for three! Yes!

This team is really at its best when Hayward is aggressive, so hopefully he doesn't come out passive to start the 2nd half.

I still can't believe they didn't trade Hayward for Steven Adams. Afterall, who wouldn't want a slow non shooting center making $28m next year

Theis with a clean block and of course he is called for a foul. Refball sucks.

I'm not sure who is responsible for it or how the rule change got through but I am not a fan of the new infinite shot clock rule.

And of course Bledsoe is the guy running around dribbling looking for an ISO in all the wrong places and chewing up infinity.

I am not in the "I am smarter than Brad" camp but its become clear during this game that he has some Andy Reid-like clock management issues.

Still waiting for the entire roster to be healthy. If/when that happens this team will be a force to be reckoned with.

The 4th quarter of Game 5 in 2012 vs. Heat is on NBA TV right now.
That was an all time amazing game/moment.

I drove a total of 14 hours to go to game 6 & while seeing Lebrons greatest game ever is something truly amazing to have been a part of for the rest of my life, that was such a devastating loss. I really thought we were going to the finals again that night.
