I donít know if it was mentioned but Pritchard looked like an NBA player in limited minutes last night. I know he will most likely only see garbage time when Kemba gets back. Teague adds a high level of shooting and scoring off the bench. Itís nice to see that we have some end of rotation players that can actually play. PP doesnít look like heís afraid of anything. Tough kid.

I agree.  Tom Westerholm on his podcast Ginotime this morning made fun of him, said he didn't look like he had a clue, but think he was off base. TP. I think he is just trying to cover up for the fact that he had PP rated so low in his mock draft.

Pritchard had one bad play last night: a possession where he dribbled aimlessly for 15 seconds and then hoisted a piece of garbage at the end of the clock.

Aside from that play, he defended the way I want him to defend and took the shots he needs to take.  If that is how he plays, heíll be a good player for us.

You made a similar comment during the game I dsagreed with you then, and I disagree with you now. That play was okay it shows that he is not overwhelmed by the moment. Sure he missed the shot, but much more than that it showed me that he is a gamer and will not shy away from making plays. That is exactly what you need from  your players not someone that does not want the ball and is looking to get rid of it like a hot potato.

Watching and reading about the game on ESPN, Giannis and Tatum are the players talked about ad nauseum. Brown, the best player on the floor on either team last night is barely mentioned in print and not mentioned in highlights.
Itís not just ESPN. The Celtics very own social media team gabe player of the game to Tatum, bafflingly.

It's not all that baffling....Tatum did hit a ridiculous game winning step back 3 pt bank shot...

Brown was spectacularly solid

Edit: or was it unspectacularly awesome?

indisputable proof that refs hate celtics

With a review as they did on this play, I assume the refs are able to overturn the call - is that correct? 
If so, not only did they make the wrong call in real time, the correct call was missed by whoever reviews the play.  That seems pretty bad to me.

An absolutely horrid call but lucky the Greek freak is a really bad free throw shooter. It looked bad in real time and was easily viewed on reply. What are the refs penalized for that?

Fines?

I'm late with this point, but here goes.

Stevens has not used much in the way of bench minutes for three seasons at least. Didn't have much of a bench, thus no surprise here. I usually jot down the bench minutes.

Celtics 84 minutes and 34 points
Bucks 73 minutes and 12 points.

If the Celtics bench got 70 minutes last season it was rare.

Stevens, over time, will be happy with a 7 man rotation.
Again, if there isn't a good player on the bench? Nothing can be done.

My point is that if Smart, Tatum, Brown are going to each play 40 minutes a game in a playoff series it becomes a factor.

Legs are legs and shots are shots and I'm sure their stats freaks have looked at this.

If the guy you are up against is fresher that can have an impact.

I take it that coaches can't challenge calls this year?  Otherwise, we would've challenged the bogus Tristan call on Giannis.  Is that true?

Challenges have been adopted by the NBA.

Was the play reviewed and the refs determined it was a foul on Thompson? Thought it was reviewed.

on the nba review it said that they did review to see whether the foul was called before time ran out. which it was. but the actual foul itself was not reviewable. so once the call was made it was a done deal.

see below:

   00:00.0   Foul: Loose Ball   Tristan Thompson   Giannis Antetokounmpo   IC   Video   
Comment:   Thompson (BOS) and Antetokounmpo (MIL) both make a legal attempt to reach the inbound pass, and the contact should have been deemed incidental. Referees reviewed the call in instant replay as per the automatic trigger for fouls called at when there is no time remaining on the clock at the end of any period to confirm that the foul was called before the expiration of time, but the foul itself is not a reviewable matter.

They talked about it on the TV post game. Supposedly Brad didn't have any TO's left so he couldn't.

It should be common sense that itís reviewable. How stupid of the NBA. These games matter. Being told the next day that your team was screwed is infuriating. Iím so glad Giannis canít shoot free throws.

I'm not sure how Boston fans can watch this game against a stout defense and not see how James Harden would help immensely. We can't get into the paint and we are struggling to get good shots.

I'm not here to debate what we should send, but for Celtics fans to just outright say we just don't want or need him is silly.
