I have no idea what they were waiting for on the sequence where TL came down with the offensive board. Saw at least three fouls, then they call touch stuff on the other end. We need to sell contact better.

Any thoughts on a Theis, R. Williams pairing? On offense, Theis does the screen stuff, and Williams can garbage stuff, on defense it might capitalize on Williams being able to roam a bit more and use his wingspan. Maybe it's crazy, but I wonder...

It is if Philly is the 6 seed.
It makes the path about as tough as possible. Tough matchup with Philly, if Simmons is well. Road series at Toronto, then Milwaukee.

They are a capable if healthy but it would be a big boost to avoid that scenario.

Hard to believe the C's hit five of their first six 3-point attempts in this one. Since then, they're 3 of 24.

I think Kemba needs another week on the shelf, but with Jaylen and Gordon out you kind of need to deal with a less than 100% version.

Man if the Celtics could hit a few of these open threes this would be a much closer game.

Have missed a fuckton of open looks but unfortunately most have been Smart and Grant.

The injury lineups are mega frustrating.

I'm not a Jazz fan, but they're playing tonite like the team people thought they would be this season.

They’ve defended Tatum well...but then again that’s easier with no Jaylen or Hayward. Plus Jayson has come back to earth.

When Marcus feels the need to be the scorer, his offensive efficiency collapses
I also feel like when he hits threes early he goes into complete chucking it mode. Kemba and Tatum (although he's missed too) have got to get more attempts than Smart every night.

The three best players in the floor pass up open looks so Wanamaker can rush a wide open three for some reason.
