Brown is killing me with these free throws. That's four straight misses.

Brown isnít even close on his FT misses.  Ugh

So apparently it's going to be another "Larkin saves us" kind of night? lol

This Brooklyn team is scrappy as heck. They aren't about to let you get comfortable.

I'm also not surprised the ball movement is sorely lacking without Horford in the lineup. Kyrie might be the fuel, but Horford is the oil that keeps our engine running.

Going to need heavy minutes from Kyrie and our starters.  We have 4 days of rest after this so I'm not worried about leaning heavily on them.

I think they've turned a corner. I don't get a sense of dread when the bench comes in anymore lol

Problem is our best bench players Rozier and Smart are streaky. Could revert to slinging bricks at any moment.

Gonna be a struggle without Al.  Hopefully, the Celtics will pick it up.

They definitely remind me of the 2014-2015 Celtics team, and to a lesser extent the 2015-2016 Celtics team.

Would it be bad if we lost to the Nets?  We need the Lakers to have a worse record than the Nets and other teams

Yeah in the playoffs that is the worry.

Yep, you know they annoy these teams because they aren't an easy W anymore.

Ugh, Baynes has to pass that out. It was one on four down there.
