Celtics are 23-3 when shooting at least 0.34 from 3, 6-9 when not.

The three losses were @CHI (10/24), CLE (10/28) and @CHI (11/21).

ahhh, my sarcasm meter is off

thought Jaylen was terrible on both sides of the ball...guess the All-Star voting came out and he wasn't very high
It's just funny how deceptive that stat can be. I'm watching the game, TimeLord is hustling all over the place, making winning plays, looks great, and you look down and he's -5 in a game they won by 8. Jaylen looks like dogshit, has 4 of the team's 9 total turnovers, can't hit the ocean falling out of boat, and he's +20.

Bizarre shooting night for JB. 0-8 from three. 1-6 on jumpers, all around the FT line. 6-7 at the rim, where he drove smartly and aggressively.

I do not want to see the Bulls in the playoff, especially with a healthy Lonzo Ball.

I missed it but apparently there was a discussion during the game where Scal said Derozan is for sure a hall of famer and dwight howard might not get in? And this is really the best the Celtics can do as an analyst? Yikes

Yeah, started with Mike asking Scal if Drummond was a HoFer - which Scal took to mean Mike thought he was, so he proceeded to sort of gently mock Mike, saying something like, "you must think Dwight Howard is going to get in then."

Mike protested that he was just asking the question, so Scal said something, "Demar? The other guy out here? Yeah, he'll get in. Drummond? No. Dwight Howard? Probably not."

But I was stoned, so who knows. Something like that. I actually think Drummond has a shot. Rebounder of his era.

I go back and forth on Scal. He can be irritating and condescending, but I do think he's pretty dialed into the league and networks well and knows the game.

Yea I listen to a lot of League Pass and Scal is better than most. I actually find him somewhat entertaining. He doesn't fear analytics (ala JVG/Jackson), is not afraid to ask the HC a tough question, and offers opinions on players/style (nothing worse than analysts that go with hot takes -Kyle Draper). BUT he definitely can be condescending, even with Mike (but Mike has lost his fastball)

Tommy was a legend and filling his shoes is impossible, but the Celtics could do a lot worse. If you don't watch LP then watch NBATV, TNT or ESPN and get a serving of their crap.

FWIW...I was at a game recently and he went out of his way pre-game to take plenty of photos with kids/families/fans in the crowd. I thought it was a nice gesture on his part.

If anyone has some suggestions for Scal replacements I'd be interested in kicking them around since I read complaints about him in the Cellar

By far the worst part of listening to Scal is watching him belittle other people to boost his own fragile ego. I had a professor in college who always told us to read whatever we were reading as generously as we possibly could before being critical... Scal pretty much never doees that.
