Not many times when you think "if only Theis were stronger", but that's one right there. Decided to gather rather than rising up through the contact, and traveled.

Idk if most of this is just Raptors completely sucking shooting the ball but I’ll take it. C’s not playing at all cylinders yet this is the result. For now. 3rd quarter woes all year so let’s see
Celtics are running their shooters off the line, and thinking 2-3 passes ahead on D. Great effort on D.

Feels like Jaylen, Gordon and Tatum need to get more shots.. especially Gordon. With smart as the PG it just feels like the ball stops way too much. Can’t Gordon or even Tatum bring up the ball when Wanamaker and Kemba aren’t on the floor?

I think Marcus is just having one of his chucky Marcus games so far. But yeah, I wouldn’t mind seeing the ball in Hayward’s hands a little more often.

I just think with Smart on the ball he’s just so much more tempted to shoot and takes up too much space on the center of the arc where better shooters could score more often. I feel like smart could just be a scrappier player on the boards.. like a smaller Rodman.. Rodman knew he couldn’t shoot..Marcus is a better shooter, but I think he could be a better team player by passing and moving off the three point line.

Theis gets elbowed in the face and called for the foul. Jesus.

Marcus kind of all over the place tonight.

Edit: but then he makes a great play like that on D and you remember why he’s so valuable...

Tatum to Brown for three. I hope to see more of that for the next decade.
