I love Smart!

Thanks for the info OZ

I don't doubt Walker's commitment to his team, but his knee is apparently going to be a chronic issue the rest of his career. He has simply played a lot of basketball for a long time and his position and style creates wear and tear on his knees. So ................... he and the Celtics should have been smarter about the all-star game. I would have been a lot better with a brief starting appearance, 5 minutes and call it a day. I know he was voted a starter and maybe the league has some policy about all-star appearances, but his team, the Celtics, should be the priority. Stevens and medical staff need to rest him as much as possible the rest of his time in Boston, so he can be ready for the playoffs each season. I want to see the guy win a title here before he retires.

Most likely a coincidence but the Celtics defense tightened up after Tatum left the game.

Some really, really ugly three point shots to start this game...by both teams.

Phoenix really regressed to the mean after the hot start in the season.

I can't remember...if they waived Baynes, could we sign him?

Sadly no. He has to be traded to another team before being waived. The ship has sailed for this season.

T wolves are ok, They have some guys.

At the moment they don't look so good. Celtics just need to play their game and keep Hayward involved.

Hayward's midrange is money.

This is what I fear most going forward. Kemba was an iron man in Charlotte but one season in Boston and he's already missed almost 10 games.  :'(

Let's go C's! Just getting in. How we looking?

Looks like Tatum's inked up his back pretty good.
