Semi should NEVER get off the bench. I'd rather have Nader on the court before Semi. He is absolutely atrocious.

I don't want EITHER of them playing.

And why is Tatum out?

And how do Celtics bigs keep getting switched onto McCollum?

C's are gonna blow this with some crappy defense and decisions.

Ah, so that contact is a foul for McCollum on one end, but not for Rozier on the other end? Got it. Good job, refs, and you wonder why your reputations are **** right now  ::)

These 'good' teams are barely beating us with 2nd & 3rd unit players

McCollum is a heck of a player.  That crossover on Horford was a blatant carry though.

Makes me sad. More convinced than ever that a healthy Cs team would wipe the floor with the Eastern conference teams and be a legit contender.

He's been carrying all night! They don't call that anymore

Hopefully, they will be healthy enough by the time they face the Cavs and the Raptors.

Like, where the hell is this aggression the rest of the game, Al? You hit a three, get a big block on the other end, and then get to the line on an aggressive drive all within 30 seconds, yet you've been nonexistent the rest of the game?

I think it's hilarious that McCollum was getting all hyped over having a narrow lead over a team missing half its good players.

Dang it, how was that not a foul on Aminu on that rebound?!?

And a poor Horford box out leads to an offensive rebound and three for Lillard... So frustrating.
