Loving how aggressive Hayward is looking. Going to need him to be that player today with Kemba out.

LA D is tough so far on us.

Ehh, maybe interior D. But we've had great looks on the perimeter thus far, just can't knock them down. Their help D and defending against the pass is not too good.

I'd say they've played better than the Lakers, just not making their easy baskets.

Not a horrible start.  Missing a few shots that I think we'll make as the game goes on.

I didn't like the transition dunk for McGee, and we'll need to rebound better than we have so far.  Let's go.

celtics are getting wide open shots, which is good. the shots are not falling, which is bad. but i think they will make them as the game goes on.

okay defense so far, but need to box out more on rebounds.

They need to box out and gang rebound.

Lebron iso-ing on Theis is not as effective as they seem to expect
I'm bitter.

Not the best shot option from Jaylen and he compounds it by fouling AD on the other end to stop a fastbreak
