deep inside Guido territory
Big one tonight on ABC and surprised there is not a game thread started yet. LeBron/AD and Co. come to TD Garden having lost 2 in a row. LBJ and AD both are questionable to play, but I'd be shocked if either missed this one. Need 48 minutes of defense this time around. The Celtics have not been consistent enough defensively lately. This is a game where the Jays have to come out from the start and dominate the ball.

BEAT LA!!!!!!

Are the Celtics one of the only NBA teams to religiously post an injury report before every game? I've checked the Lakers' Twitter feed, and if there's anything on the status of LBJ and AD, I've missed it.

Both are listed as game time decisions. Guess it depends on warmups. But they’ll both play. It’s on national TV!

Are you implying, sir, that the Lakers name was fraudulently stolen when they moved from Minnesota? Because if that's the case, those five titles should be rightfully returned to the great state of Minnesota.

I know that nobody would be so phony to count those 5 titles as Los Angeles titles, so perhaps I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill.

C’s win would be extra sweet coming off all the pregame Laker ballwashing .

Really looking forward to this one.

Always love The Truth in the studio. I may have underappreciated him in the pre-KG years, but man do I miss watching him play. This will have to do.

Rambis and McHale are wondering what the heck is going on with these layups

First time watching an ESPN game, the scoreboard is highly distracting.

That Theis missed layup was so fucking egregious. There’s no one within a fucking mile and he tries to tip it in with one hand for some reason. Just awful

That’s a bad call. Looked ok live but on replay it’s all Schroeder pushing his body into Walker
