The season started as well as we could hope with a decisive win over a quality Sixers team. Tomorrow’s test won’t be any easier on the Heat’s home court, with Miami looking to avenge both its opening season loss to Chicago and its ECF loss to the Celtics last year.

7:30 tip off. ESPN. C’s -2.5 line.

WIN

Big match-up with the de facto Eastern Conference champs, because, let’s face it, ifJimmyButlerhadmadethatthree…..

Keep whining, South Beach.

Little one (10yo f) and I have gorged ourselves on some rice and beans … she is settling in for an evening of brawlhalla with her friends while I get set for a night of the C’s.

I'm actually more optimistic about this game than I was about the one with the 76ers ... let's go Celts!

Shooting not as crisp tonight.

Separately, I'm not trading White. No way. I'm more impressed with his defense each game. Except for Lowry blowing by him, he's been really good so far.

JVG going to bat for Ime despite admittedly knowing nothing about what happened. Incredible stuff

There's a ringer in Vonleh's jersey and a Jeff Van Gundy in Jeff Van Gundy's suit.

I think the Van Gundy bros are just terrible at their job, absolutely terrible. And I know JVG is smart and knows a lot about hoops because I have heard him on podcasts. It’s a choice to emphasize narratives and drama instead of just talking about the game.

5 blocks in one quarter. Nice to play a small team. Though if Pritch doesn't get minutes against these guys, that'll be a bad sign for him going forward ...

And his shot fix is real and he can shoot >35% he is an exceptionally good fit for this squad. He is going to get a ton of wide open threes.

NBA folks in general not faring well between defending Ime and Draymond.
It's remarkable watching them just toe the line on this stuff. I wonder if it's coming from the producers or the NBA. Like don't emphasize the drama, every thing's good, be cool...

He's awful, as is ESPN's broadcast. Going to bits about his outfit when he was a rookie coach in the 1st Q of the game? Just garbage.

These announcers aren’t even bothering to call the game.

Celtics have an edge to them that looks new this season.

They both tend to jabber and meander to the point where they become oblivious to what’s going on with the game.
