This will be a tough game. We will need to focus fire.

Has anyone heard anything on Horford? I haven't seen anything.
Latest is that both Avery and Horford are game time decisions.  Avery more likely to play than Horford.

Rest Horford at all costs I say. DO NOT want to be without him come playoffs.
This is where the rubber hits the road

Yeah we NEED him in the playoffs.

Without him our front court is trash to a whole new level (and even with him it's bad - though that's not really on Horford either).

Nice to see another scheduled win here.  We will be sitting pretty at 41-23 by the end of the night.

Sneaky reality but the Celtics have kind of been doing that with all players this season.  They know they are good and know they need everyone healthy come playoffs.

Just spoke to @celtics Avery Bradley. He said he's "definitely" playing tonight vs #LAClippers. #Celticstalk

Good grief - Al (elbow) and JJ (flu) both out tonight. Freaking small ball galore.

EDIT: Fifth starter still yet to be determined. I'm not sure who would be best. Our two best options to guard Blake in Al and JJ are out, so I guess you have to go Kelly? But he's been so objectively bad lately that he might go Mickey. Could just fully commit to small ball and go IT, AB, Brown, Crowder, and Amir. At least we'd be difficult to guard.

Well they did say it wasn't serious.

So Al Horford is out until the playoffs with that logic..  :laugh:

(That wouldn't be too bad though. 100% healthy for playoffs? Yes please.)

Yeah I'd go with that lineup. Don't wanna start Kelly and end up having no backup. At least 1 of Kelly or Amir should be playing at all times. The question is who is gonna sub Crowder? Coz I dont trust Mickey.

Cleveland lost. Another opportunity. Better take this C's.

You're probably right. Blake would foul out KO rather quickly. At least that small unit would give IT plenty of spacing to penetrate and plenty of shooting around him.

Losing games like yesterday's really reduce the margin for error on nights where a win is very unlikely, like tonight. Celtics haven't been playing well their last 6 or so games barring the game against Cleveland. Won't care if they lose really, since they're heavily outmatched and tired, but I hope they look better.

This is going to be a rough one, I feel that Zeller is going to start today
