I know RSN is supposed to do this, but he's MIA apparently? Go Celts, let's take #3 in a row!

I know Isaac is a bit of a weirdo, but is his career basically over? Shouldn't he be back by now?

Tatum was not happy with the non-call on that three-pointer in front of the Celtics bench, so he decides to take it out on the Orlando difference by driving the ball to the hoop almost every time he gets it. I like it.

Great spacing with the Celtics early offense

I looked into it the other day when I was trying to figure out if they would give up on Bamba. Apparently he is apparently his knee is recovered but he was having hamstring issues, and they are being cautious with him

I don't think we've seen one "good" possession by Orlando in terms of running plays that beat the Cs. Instead they seem to be all about shots up. The Cs will have to really play terribly to lose to this squad imo, back end of a road B2B or not.

Ahhh interesting. Thanks. I'm sure Orlando wouldn't be too distraught if he never played with this young core.

I love the way White defends on drives, close to the basket. Sometimes he strips the ball, sometimes he just makes his man take a difficult shot, right near the basket.

Let’s see if the Magic bench can keep pace with the Celtics bench.

Derrick Whites extra shooting work looks like it’s really paying off. He’s not hesitating and his release looks a lot cleaner. Apparently he’s been working with Celtics assistant Ben Sullivan, who learned under the legendary San Antonio Spurs shooting coach ship England what’s up matBen Sullivan, who learned under the legendary San Antonio Spurs shooting coach Chip Engelland

Celtics have been wearing out the corner. Not our best overall quarter but if Orlando doesn’t tighten up their defensive rotation we will keep piling up points on open corner threes.

I don't know how long this hot three-point shooting can continue this season, but it's sure nice to see.

Every one of the second unit of MB, PP, Blake, Grant, and Hauser has shot 40% from three in a season. Bomb squad, especially if Blake can make a few

I'm liking Hauser out there so far. I know there are better nicknames, but I am calling him Quaid.

Magic is a little scary, because it has absolutely nothing to lose in these games and can play totally free.

I don’t know why they think that Kornet is better with this team than Kabengele

It's not surprising Brogdon's three-point shot has been blocked twice. Not only is his release point scary low, but when he's shooting, he holds the ball about a foot and a half in front of his chest.

Orlando just brings the ball up and shoots it. They almost certainly are coached to go early in the clock but they really aren't making great plays. Their shots are just falling. 49% from the field but their selection is not great.

Tatum is a monster btw
