I still want to know Brad's reasoning for only playing Kyrie 12 minutes in the first half, especially his decision to bench Kyrie in the second half of the second quarter when they made their run.

Im guessing he was on a minutes restriction.

Well, that seems to be the only logical excuse, but I don't understand why that'd be the case for a quad contusion.

Contusion is a broad/vague term.  That he already missed three games and was listed as questionable tonight should be evidence enough that this was not your garden-variety bruise and that he might not yet be back at full strength.  Hope hes back Thursday for purely selfish reasons (Ill be at the game).
2018 Mock Trade Deadline:

Pelicans: Davis, Holiday, Vucevic, Rondo, Clarkson, Nance, Hart, Moore, Ilyasova, Ajinca, Hill, Miller, Jackson, Dotson, Dakari Johnson

Warriors:  KD, Steph, Klay, Draymomd, Iggy, Zaza, Young, Livingston, McGee, West, McCaw, Jones, Casspi, Jones, Looney

Google for picks.

On the bright side, Brown played great two way basketball and Rozier shot well from 3 again. Not sure there is anything else positive to say about this game except, thank god it over and on to Washington for a bounce back win.

I think Kyrie's knee also is not 100 percent
The rim is looking bigger and bigger every game.

CBS was outcoached last night... no two ways about it

Also where are the timeout calls?  What is he waiting for....very frustrating sometimes to watch

Also

Al Horford- Another garbage game. 

Jaylen Brown - Very Careless with the ball.

Terry Rozier - Very very careless with the ball.


Celts bench - Got embarrassed by the raptors bench. Danny needs to trade for Evans or make another creative move to bring in a legit scorer off the bench

I view last night as more of a positive reflection on Toronto than anything else.  This is easily the deepest group they have had in the Casey, Lowry, Derozan era.  It's difficult to takeaway anything significant as far the Celtics are concerned.  There was zero urgency and/or decisiveness on the offensive.  This has been an issue at various points throughout the season.  The problem last night is that we went against a team that can capitalize on our mistakes.  We weren't ready to get punched in the mouth and the Raptors treated this like a playoff game from start to finish.
