Would expect to see kyrie played sparingly the rest of the regular season

With how we've been playing lately, I think we still win with both Brown and Al out. But it honestly wouldn't be too bad of a loss for us tonight given that A) an Indy win and a Cleveland loss tonight will volt Indy to the third seed, and B) we're in no real danger of losing that second seed anyways.

Am I  the only one who is pretty confident that the Lakers will beat the Cavs tonight?

No team can win without irving hayward Horford and Brown... 4 starters... but the team is deep and played it till the end... the issue is they must find a way to keep the team healthy in playoffs...

I think the game was winnable.   I did not like the rotations used in the 4th quarter.   Would have rather seen more Morris than Semi, and although I realize that Monroe is a sieve on defense, he was hot this game.

Tough loss but good to see the reserved takes Indy down to the wire. Not super impressed by Indy. They seem to be very mediocre team. A healthy Cs team wipes the floor with them.

At this point, you're almost assured the 2 seed if you are the C's. Time to start managing players and minutes for the playoffs. I expect Irving and Brown to get some extended time off to get right. Get ready to see and extends view of the Egyptian Prince (Nader) over the next few weeks! Who knows? We might have a Yabu sighting at some point too!

I agree.
We did well this whole season up to this point. We have a good score, sure 2nd seed, we have enough of a cushion to focus solely on playoff performance.

Frustrating game.  Especially the 2nd half.   Celtics were undermanned yet still in prime shape to steal one and they let it slip thru their fingers.  Just some frustrating possessions in the 4th quarter.

With Kyrie out, it was the type of game I was screaming for Tatum or Rozier to take control and it never really happened.  Marcus played his butt, though.  Great game for him.

I'm fine with keeping Kyrie out the next few games just to rest up.  2 seed is looking almost like a lock at this point.  Just get him healthy and rested.

I really can't get a feel on the Pacers.  I have been waiting all year for them to take a step back, but they keep on winning.
