The Nets are now decent, although terrible on the second night of back-to-backs. They are also banged up. There are no excuses tonight.

Globe: Kyrie, MaMo say they're ready to go; TL questionable.

Sounded like TL was good to go on the commute home. Neutralize the Nets.

Nets are 12-3 in their last 15 games, and in the top 5 in just about every category in the NBA over that time, including PPG. D'Angelo Russell has taken his game to another level.

Needless to say, let's crush them, but it may actually be a better test than we usually think when the Nets come to town.

Jesus. That's a jaw dropper. I knew they were doing well, but ... someone in the front office over there deserves an award.

The Nets very cleverly rebuilt without high picks by just entering the never miss cheat code.

Nets get totally screwed by the schedule makers.

Celtics on a few days rest, on an extended home stretch. Nets 2nd night of a back to back, on the road.

Seriously who the fuck is Kurucs?
I was hoping the Celtics would buy a second round pick to draft him last year. He got a raw deal at FCB Barcelona. He refused to resign, so they benched him, trying to damage his draft standing.

He can shoot and put it on the floor. The only question with him is defense.

I think #20 is best utilized when Kyrie is off the floor. He is at his best when the ball is in his hands and he doesn’t get that opportunity much when Kyrie is on the floor.

Imagine if we hit the easy shots in the paint and didn’t get called for bullshit offensive fouls. Ball movement looks good even with Kyrie back

Rozier was hammered. No call. The Celtics get zero respect from the point-shaving zebras.

They had some magic sparks during preseason last year. Gordon's athleticism made a jump while Kyrie was out. That's why he has been playing better over the last week.
