Terry needed that. He spent his whole run in the 2nd trying to get after Sexton and was mostly failing.

I missed a few minutes, but in what I've seen, Tatum has done a good job finding the options that exist between fadeaway jumper and reckless drive.

Guys I don’t want to get too excited but Hayward is playing at a visibly different speed lately.

I see it a bit, so not arguing, but a lot of the positive tonight seems to be from playing against a crap team that can't cover PnR. That's where his smarts/vision really shine.

I won't be able to get excited for Gordon until I see him take a layup and I don't think to myself "He would have dunked the shit out of that in Utah." When he starts dunking again with authority, he'll be back.

Both teams sitting at 6 free throws so far. Tatum is the only Celtic who has been fouled while shooting, apparently, as he's 6/6.

Seems like an awfully physical game for so few free throws, on both ends.

I love everything about Marcus Smart this year, with one exception.

I don't want to see him playing in the post with his back to the basket. I'm not sure I remember anything good ever coming out of that.

Good story in the Globe about Paul George talking about Hayward’s recovery.

For fucks sake it’s malpractice not to be running the offense through Horford tonight.

Sexton averages 13.6fga per game. He's already at 19 to this point. Somebody must have told him to just go and go and go tonight and see what happens.

That ball did not touch Gordon going out of bounds before the break. If they change that call, I'm going to be pissed.

Scal talked about this earlier. Rozier straight up roasted him last game and Sexton seems motivated to avenge that. I love the kid playing like this as long as Boston prevails. He is fun to watch.
