Looks like Millsap is playing tonight versus us and resting tomorrow versus the Cavs. Go figure lol

Hopefully though that means he'll be ready to take the Cavs down when they play the second half of the Home/Home in Atlanta later this weekend.

I'm still bummed about last night. I understand it's only one game, but still.

I would hope they come out tonight and look to bounce back, but I'm not too sure.

Oh, imagine that, more Lebron D-riding.

I swear that most of these former players are just terrible analysts, especially Shaq, who is an idiot. Did they not watch the game last night? Lebron had a good game, but overall they didn't play that good - we literally just played that bad. Their defense was still atrocious giving up numerous wide open shots, but we just couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

Can they really not distinguish between the two? It's not like it was Cleveland's D that killed us.

No, it wasn't.  And that's the the main thing I take away from last night's game - I would be MUCH more concerned if Cleveland visibly stifled the Cs.  They just missed a ton of open looks and played with zero effort defensively.

Make-up win.  Go C's.

Anyone watching this intro light show?

Looks cool.

Yep. I really don't think there's much to take out of last night due to how terribly we played, which I'm guessing is largely due to that several day lay-off we had before that game, which has traditionally been bad for us this year.

Cleveland is obviously still the favorite, but I think it'd be a much, much closer series than last night showed.

Just got in and couldn't find game!  I hate to listen to an announcer that isn't biased toward the Celtics  8)
Then again I don't expect Kevin to not nudge toward us

Good to see AB getting his shot going early. We're going to need him scoring in the playoffs.

The Celtics look a lot more aggressive already tonight.

So, anyone else starting to think that Crowder's elbow is bothering him a bit? His defense has been terrible the last two games giving up 30+ to Lebron and 7 points already to Prince.

A sense of urgency tonight...
