Doubling Jokic makes no sense. Not playing a smart game. But guard shooting like this will just kill you whatever else is going on in the game.

Celtics have been hot at officials since the ridiculous TL goaltend…and while it’s not an evenly called game they get in trouble when they focus on that stuff.

And? Actually defending the three point shots will lower the make percentage. If they don't regress before it's too late and have a 56% shooting night from three and we're defending, so be it. This is not it.
And if both teams were shooting league average from three the Celtics would be up double digits.

I agree with the earlier comment they need more size: he’s just too big for Grant and that’s a whole set of doubles. They just don’t have the size to deal with Jokic once he’s below the foul line

don’t really know much about Cancar but it looks like he can be a flamethrower

Derrick White is a great defensive player. Made a few great decisions to get steals

I think it’s much more fun to watch Bones Hyland highlights than it is to actually root for him on your team

giving up 100 points in 3 quarters probably means you deserve to lose
Yeah, unless defense steps up it ain’t going to happen tonight. I know the 3 pt shooting is unbalanced right now but Denver has not had to work all that hard offensively, unfortunately

I think Gordon has popped two Celtics players in the mouth and not got called for either (I believe that was Gordon who hit Rob in the mouth where Rob walked into the crowd for a bit)

There’s really nothing you can do when a team is this hot from 3.

Every time I watch Jokic play, I'm convinced he shoots 90% from the floor. Fucking guy almost never seems to miss. He's 10-12 tonight.

Celtics haven't been great, and DEN is playing well, but not much you can really take from a game when you shoot 26% from 3 and your opponent shoots 63%, that's just not gonna be survivable in the NBA

So have the Celtics been shooting on a crooked rim this half? WTF?

Leveling the rim mid-game is wild. I’ve never seen this before.

TL had a dunk this half where he hung on rim a bit—-anything else anyone can remember?
