Celtics please win. You're better than what you've shown the last few weeks. Make it happen.

Baynes gets into the starting lineup for the 2nd game in a row, and for the 2nd game in a row, he takes the 1st shot for the Celtics.

And misses. Why is it so hard for this team to let the guys shoot who should be shooting? Open or not, let's fucking try to win tonight.

I whine about this almost as much as DOTB whines about Jaylen not getting calls but my goodness does he go up soft and turn everything into a circus layup. It’s like he doesn’t know he’s a tall guy

There's the other benefit to having Baynes start with Horford. Horford now has a small 4 trying to guard him on the block, while Kanter is out messing around with Baynes wherever he is hanging around.

See, I think this is the result of him not getting the calls. Early in his rookie season, he was going up strong all the time, but as he continued to get hacked and wasn't getting any calls, he started trying to avoid the contact and make the shot, and we end up with a guy who avoids contact, but can't make the shot because it's not too difficult.

Kyrie is 1/5.

If it's not one guy, it's another. I can't wait for a good shooting night from everyone.

Tommy almost had a heart failure when Gordon passed up a layup to make a circus pass outside to the 3 point line...

I’m not worried. It’s early. We have a lot of talent. They’ll figure it out. Just some early growing pains. Missing open shots.

*fart*

Ok, well, the folks that said "Let's give it until Thanksgiving, and then start to worry" are ready to start worrying.

Hopefully, the people that are giving to Christmas or New Year's are still holding strong.

I'm thinking I'm going to try to give it to St. Patrick's Day, just to be safe.
