yet, aside from poor refereeing, manu coming back from the dead with a miracle 3 pointer, and boston's final shot rimming out...the celtics win on the road in SA.

my take away, a few hours removed from the loss, is that the celtics are the better team and would win a seven game series.

the celtics have made impressive progress as a team thus far and have not yet reached their peak, not even close.
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

My take away was inconsistency is the mark of typical bench players but starters need to win it. This game saw starters and bench play under par. Add in some calls and loses happen.
Mock "trade deadline" team: Blazers.
PG-Lillard, Napier, Baldwin
SG-McCollum, Connaughton, Wilcox
SF-Fournier, Harkless, Layman
PF-Aminu, Davis
C- Nurkic, Leonard, Collins

Morris and Smart play even a normal game and it is a win.  No bueno last night.

Horford had a relatively bad game, and the C's lost a game they frankly should have won.

Goes to show how valuable Horford is to this team.

I'll cut him some slack since that was his first bad game in a long time.

Without Kawhi Leonard.   They did not have their best player and we were w/o Hayward

Welp, I think I'm glad I missed this one.

Well worth watching.  It was a very entertaining game.

I wasn't a huge fan of Kyrie taking 3's in each of the last 4 possessions.  It's fun when they go in, but I don't think they were necessarily the best shots available and the ball never touched anyone else's hands.
