That's a bad call.

Feels like we should be down more than 5.  We're playing pretty well all things considered.  That bad call against Tatum really hurt though.


Broussard: "Did you call bank?"
Pierce: "I called game."

Couple of missed layups through contact to end the half.  Would like to have those. 

We're in the game though.  Portland is cold from three which is helping us.  Need to cut down on the turnovers.

Monroe with the odd statline

7 rebounds
6 points
5 assists
4 turnovers

If he just had 3 in something, then I could finish up the oddity.

2 blocks
1 in plus/minus

Edit: Whoops, he actually has 4 assists, but still.

I know that I should be happy that the half-G-League Celtics are even in this game, but I can't help but be frustrated with a lot of their first-half play. Several missed layups and bunnies, some sloppy turnovers.

Not to mention the bad calls/noncalls, like Tatum's "charge," and the fact that the Blazers are apparently expert at blocking shots without EVER committing fouls.

Rozier's struggled from the field the last few games, even with some clutch shooting. I hope either he or Tatum provide some offense.

I'd like to see more Horford post-ups on Aminu. And I'd like to see him stop jumping on Aminu's pump fake.

Yeah, Aminu's a decent player, but he shouldn't be hurting Boston this much. I should know: I've had him on my fantasy team and he's pretty inconsistent. :P

That's the second good pass from Tatum that Baynes has failed to convert.

He's frustrated me a bit tonight, but he's also gotten shafted on several noncalls—apparently the refs don't dare to call fouls on Nurkic.

Hands are Baynes' biggest weakness; always have been.  We knew that when we signed him.  Hate watching him fumble good passes, but that's just part of the package with him.

Aminu outplaying Horford tonight  ::)

I like Horford and realize how important he is to our team, but he's really been frustrating with how non-existent he's been since the injuries occurred.

Man, Rozier and Tatum are missing tons today, and the Cs are getting scorched by Al Freakin' Aminu.
