If the Celtics aggressively pick up the on-ball defense on Bron so he doesn't have room to operate they will have a chance.

If they sit back at the 3pt line to start guarding the ball they will get blown out of the building.

Their defense against the Wolves was some kind of awful, don't bring that crap.

It’s hard to fault Kemba for wanting to be out there in the All-Star game with everyone but if his knee is that so so then this might have been a huge mistake. Just get healthy for the playoffs though is the main thing.

These guys aren’t losing today.

I’m on a plane over the Midwest somewhere flying out to LA two days early for a work meeting to catch the game with my bro.

Pierce should be in the house today with ABC. Pierce >>> LeBron even from the commentator table.

Didn't Magic wear a Celtics jersey/T-shirt for Bird's retirement celebration? (Maybe I dreamed that.)

where I was last at
Bill should have worn "8" instead

for the 8 times the Celts beat the Lakers (Minn once) in the Finals before the Lakers lost their Celts cherry in '85.

Let's Go Celts

Kudos to McDonalds for deciding to put fried chicken on breakfast pastries, as if I’m not fat enough

Celtics have gotten a lot of quality looks, keep that up and the shots will fall. Bradley/Green/Kuzma are going to have to hit their shots for LA to win as Boston is doubling AD and Bron.

I should not be forced to watch nationally televised games in the regular season. I need my Scal, Gorman and Tommy. It depresses me.

That said, better start today than the last game against LAL, when the C's won by 32. Weathered the storm, shots weren't falling but they will. Run these big huge guys out of the gym.

Lakers hitting a lot of bullshit that they rightfully missed in the first game
