Well, after a 3 game losing streak, a player's only meeting, Kyrie going off about his teammates, the C's respond with a wire to wire ass-kicking of the Hornets.

Philly will be good test to find out if they figured things out, or if it's just more of the same, beating up on crappy teams and then falling apart against good teams. Although, Al and MaMo back tonight certainly made a big difference, so maybe we'll start seeing a fully healthy squad taking the court again.

Whatever it is, just fucking beat the Sixers and don't ruin my goddamned holiday.

Already bracing for 15 out-of-control Embiid rumbles to the basket that get bailed out by a foul call.

Yeah--the whole "maybe a player or 2 should sit out every night" phase that went on here was pretty dumb. They need everyone healthy to get the roles established. It seems to be coming in fits and starts.

Kick some ass today and we're all giddy again.

Would it surprise you to know Embiid averages only 5.6 FTA per game against Boston and 8.2 against everyone else?

I did me.

Odds The is fouls out?

Also, expect a very good effort from the C’s today. The Kyrie show is playing at 3:30. He thrives on a big spot. Could see 30-5-5 from him today.

I feel like you can pretty much tell how the Celtics are going to play on any given night based on the first few possessions. Lots of settling so far

Joel is going to feast without Baynes. They better make him run at least

The sixers haven't committed a foul yet? Ok. Sure. This game must be in Philly right?

Maybe Tommy could give Brad some HOF coach advice about how to talk to the officials.

deep inside Guido territory
That possession was the ball movement that we want. 4-5 passes, ball not sticking, and a 3 in rhythm by Morris. Brad needs to clip that and show the team that as an example of what the offense should look like.
