The Celtics have 10 more three-pointers than Charlotte and they are up by exactly 30 points.

The box score reads like a team built on 2k by someone who just wants to house the CPU all day long. 68% from the field. Smart and White are the EC Splash Bros

It would be hard not to love watching some of these bench players enjoy sucking the absolute marrow out of the opportunity that this Celtics is providing for maximum usage of secondary role players.

For those wondering, here is the definition cleaningtheglass.com uses for garbage time:

The exact definition CTG uses is: the game has to be in the 4th quarter, the score differential has to be >= 25 for minutes 12-9, >= 20 for minutes 9-6, and >= 10 for the remainder of the quarter. Additionally, there have to be two or fewer starters on the floor combined between the two teams.

Importantly, the game can never go back to being non-garbage time, or this clock resets. For example, if it's a 30 point game to start the 4th quarter, but one team comes back and pulls the game within 8, that comeback is not counted as garbage time. If the leading team regains control and expands the lead back out, garbage time would start when the score went back above 10.

This might not capture all of what we'd call garbage time, but it seeems important to err on the side of caution and not mistakenly filter out any game time that we would not consider garbage time.

I’m actually fine with Blake not taking shots to the face drawing charges up 39.
That back flip hitting the floor, tho!

That would be the most athletic move in the lifetimes of like 95% of people on the planet. And this is way past his prime.

Smart entered the night outside the top ten in total assists. 15 tonight likely vaults him into the top five in terms of assist totals on the season. Marcus Smart is a very good distributor bolted on to an elite defender. Didn't see that first part coming.

This game got dumb fast.

Not complaining. But it’s a study in contrasts.

That was nice how they clearly were trying to get PP a basket.

It’s obviously not as elegant, but you can see these guys trying to run the spacing passing offense for the spot up threes. It’s like watching puppies trying to “get it”… but it’s cool to see them putting work in. And I like puppies.
