Tatum and Brown both announced as All-Stars. Wonder if there's a psychological aspect to that being official, as we saw with Tatum last season.

It’s funny, good TV when Charles doesn’t know a guy is playing. Doesn’t work with DWade and this crew. They don’t have the chemistry to be uninformed.

Liking this sub pattern to get Kemba out early to see how he looks with the 2nd unit.
Lately, Jaylen has been playing the entire 1st quarter, and Tatum and Kemba come out, and then Tatum plays most of the 2nd quarter, with Brown/Kemba coming back in around the 6 minute mark. Tonight, he's left both Tatum and Brown in there for the first 9 minutes. Nesmith now in, Tatum out.

Jaylen has been iffy in the paint since his knee problem. At the beginning of the season he was exploding off the court before launching his shot.

Defensive effort lacking again tonight. The Celtics have too many good defenders to play that poorly on defense so often.

I'm a big Pritch fan, but I've noticed that he does play kind of small under the basket. Usually gets out of the way when the big bodies come driving in.
