...yeah i'd call that an acceptable half.

jesus fucking christ, sometimes you get feels like the 2007 Patriots with these guys.
Not sure I’d want all those feels given how it ended. It’s up there with the ‘03 Sox.

Was expecting a 30 point halftime lead so must admit I’m a little disappointed by this effort.

Cs on pace for the best shooting season in NBA history both from 3 point and FT. That's ridiculous.

This team has been crushing and is 20-5, but I think most of us watching have been feeling like they still have a good amount of room before they hit their ceiling.

We know what the offense is capable of. We've seen glimpses of last year's suffocating D. TL will be returning within a few weeks.

Halves like this are what it looks like when they put together the defense and the offense. The offense is feeding off the defense, making for even more easy shots off transition and turnovers.

They are just ridiculously good.

The team has matured tremendously since last spring. They’re bigger than the moment whereas before it was too often the opposite. You almost get the sense they’re playing against themselves and the opponent is just a prop.

The Celtics two scrap heap centers have seven points and nine assists and a combined +29 at the half. Ayton and Landale have 8 and 7 and a combined -29

The feels of the first 10 games of that season, at any rate. Do you remember what it felt like to watch that team? Just an endless series of "stop, stop, he's already dead" and Randy Moss stunting on fools?

This team can write its own ending, it doesn't have to all go down like the 2007 Pats obviously, but man that's the only team I feel like I can compare it to. Just rubbing the other guys' noses in how much better than them they are.
