No Smart tonight.

Letís gets ready for lots of PP.
Is he out? I thought he was questionable.

Tatum was questionable for a thumb sprain last week and played and played well. Same could happen with Smart....that is unless he has been determined to be out and I haven't seen it yet.

Yeah he was ruled out like 10 minutes ago I think. Both him and Teague

DANG!

That means huge minutes for Brown at the 2 and Tatum at the the 3. Pritchard, Edwards and Waters will need to pick up almost all the time at PG and only a little at SG.

I also would expect to see a bunch of Semi and Grant as well.

Except for Tatum and Brown, this is going to look an awful lot like the last preseason game in a usual year.

Celtics starters against the Raptors in Tampa tonight... Tremont Waters at the point, joining Tatum, Brown, Thompson and Theis. Lowry, VanVleet, Anunoby, Siakam and Aron Baynes for Toronto

Waters getting the start.  He won't make many stupid mistakes and he's a pest with great hands on defense, but he'll need to make a few shots for us and he hasn't done that in the past. 

We don't match up well with them without Smart.  That dude can guard literally anybody on their roster, and his absence will force us into some very unfavorable matchups.  Chiefly, we'll be stuck with Theis trying to run around with Anunoby most likely, which isn't ideal.  But when you have three injuries at one position, "ideal" gets thrown out the window.

Eeeeek! Diving deep into the backup PG spot and against a talented veteran backcourt.

Chances for someone to step up and shine...fingers crossed.

If someone somewhere had had the decency to tell me that the Raptors were going to shoot 100% from three tonight?

I would have made other plans.

The offense looks so awful with Theis and Thompson in together. Is Brad just being stubborn? Does he honestly think this is our best starting lineup?
