Seriously, where is Kyrie right now?

Sprained uterus.  And/or doesn't feel like playing up to the AS break, like the rest of the league (see GSW).  But most play through it respectfully, as it is a job.

Boston looks like a team that hasn’t played together is over a week

They look like they've never played together. They are out of sync.

Toronto fans have an inferiority complex. This is their best chance at making the Finals tho. Deep deep team.

We'll be deep, too, with Hayward, Smart, Monroe (and Larkin).

Regardless, this game is garbage.

I don't care if we finish 1st or 2nd in the conference, just as long as Cleveland plays Toronto in the 2nd round.

This Raptors team is really good... that said Smart Evans and Monroe would make a huge difference.

Ftfy.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Pathetic effort and decision-making all around this half. Terrible rotation decisions by Brad, and we're clearly getting outhustled out there.

But seriously, is Kyrie injured, or did Brad really not play him down the stretch? Like there has to be some sort of justification for that decision given how terrible we looked offensively.

Tons of shots off the front of the rim. Tons of missed layups. Slow switching on defense. Some truly horrendoys defense from Kyrie. Toronto winning every 50/50 ball.

No surprise the Cs are getting blown out.

Maybe Kyrie got out there and figured out he wasn’t ready. Don’t think Stevens cares too much about tonight and doesn’t want to risk him

horrible 2nd quarter, ugly
i want to say that Smart would have helped a lot, but who knows.

VanFleet had things way too easy in the 2nd quarter, he has too much bbiq, gotta pressure him more and not be so passive on D with the 2nd unit in general

Al Horford this half: 0/2, 0 pts, 3 reb.

Yeah, he's been pretty nonexistent. He's got to step up on nights like this.
