The negatively around here is actually making me happier.

What? Semi, Theis, Baynes, Rozier, and Tatum can't quite beat the Warriors?

That's pretty fantastic.

I think we are having a great season considering we lost a starter.

  • This is the time when Danny 'Thanos' Ainge brings 'balance' to the roster
We may have been the first team to 10 wins, were definitely the firstly to 20 wins, and may yet be the first team to 30 wins this season. What's not to be optimistic about?

Most wins in the league, on pace for 62-63, best defense in the league, one of the youngest rosters. Optimism city!

Lose Hayward 5 minutes into the season.

I saw a stat on ESPN last night, where over the past 365 days the Celtics have had the second best record in the league at 62-24.

Warriors: 68-18
Celtics: 62-24
Spurs: 59-27
Rockets: 54-27
Heat: 55-28

We have the best record in the east while being 18th in total contracts $. If you remove Haywards 30 mil, we're the 3rd lowest after Chicago and Dallas. That is the basis for Stevens coach of the year argument.

The last Zach Lowe podcast I listened to (I think with Jeff Van Gundy) Lowe said something like "Brad Stevens basically has Coach of the Year wrapped up." It took me by surprise a bit just because of how blunt he was about it. It would be a nice recognition after this season, for sure.

Only on pace for 58 wins now, sigh, but despite losing four straight we still lead the conference by a game and a half.

Third team in the league  to 40 wins, having been the first to 20 and 30 wins. Good times
