I seem to remember this happening with another diva point guard that the Celtics traded...

Guaranteed we don't win against OKC, Toronto, or SA without him. This is why I'm glad Brad is coach and you guys aren't

Well now that you've guaranteed it and hes probably going to be out for a while, we may as well not play the games.

Celtics get an extended break.

The scary part is that I'm sure that some people still believe that Smart still has All-Star potential!!! I just can't talk about Smart on this forum. He's a good defender and brings a lot of energy off the bench. To me he's a bust at the 6th overall pick in a strong draft that could have easily landed us a solid starter and hasn't shown me anything to change that notion.
I'm done talking about this Smart guy now just unbelievable the blinding love for Smart on this forum
Bust seems to be a bit strong. When he was drafted the other guys in the conversation were Vonleh, Randle, and Stauskas.

I understand the consensus is gonna put Randle over Smart, but if you want to talk about real busts, look at the next two guys in that list.

I'm not getting in on the starter convo. I do want to call into question the people who keep saying, "it's just the Magic" as if we haven't been BLOWN OUT by some of the worst teams in the league! Mage are excellent defensively and they had no answer to stop us!

The only thing that held it close early was because of the mistake made by CBS to put AB on Gordon and Jae on Fournier. They switched it in the 2nd half, AB shut Fournier down and Gordon wasn't heard from again, it was over from there! Defense swallowed them up and our offense made a very good D look foolish!

And they did it without Isaiah Thomas, their best scorer.

Tonight's win over Orlando is the finest example of the expectations analysts and fans had coming into the season.  All starters in double figures, bench scoring, rebounding was up, assists were up, points off TO up, and the defense was fire.  And all of this was done without best player, Isaiah Thomas. 

Here is a sound bite from after the game:

Bradley's last comments about playing for each other are interesting. Possibly reading too far into the comments but seemed like a shot at Thomas for putting too much pressure on the team to the point where the team wasn't having fun on the court.

Washington against Gonzaga will be an opportunity to see Fultz against good competition.

Washington is getting destroyed at the half by the Zags 47-22.

Fultz a non-factor. Some of these games he's starting to have the same impact as Ben Simmons at LSU....and that's not a compliment.

I've watched him a few times and really haven't been wowed.

Smart and Brown need to play a lot like this more often
fixed it for you

they will if they can get some minutes .

They'll get minutes if they keep playing like this.  Rozier too.  (Not sure why Smart's in this post, he's getting plenty of minutes).

Tatum is the real deal. He is gonna go 2nd in the draft.
Preach!! Tp
