Something no one here has mentioned (as far as I've seen): This was the second night of a back-to-back for Indy, having been at Chicago last night. Didn't seem to bother them. Celtics, meanwhile, just had a day off and still couldn't put away the Pacers.
They played in Chicago. That's like a nothing flight to Indianapolis. It's like if the C's played the night before in Hartford. No big deal. They may as well have played at home. No big difference.

Why did Kyrie only play 27 minutes? That seems strangely low for a number one option.

I think he was in foul trouble early? Maybe

3 fouls in the 1st half but none in the second if I remember correctly.

I really like Indiana's jerseys. How bright they are. Beautiful.

He played 11 minutes in the first half.

Morris has been the best player on the team so far this year.

I agree with this. My new nickname for him is "Money".

Hayward really hurt the Celtics on both ends tonight (and on the last play). He doesn’t look right yet. This is gonna take awhile. Really hard to justify him playing 25-30 mins a game right now - they have 8 guys who are clearly better.

Bill is right. I know it is a catch-22 with trying to win games vs. trying to get Hayward back acclimated to the NBA early in the season, but he really is not helping us all that much right now.
   

100% agree and am sick to death of hearing hayward homers saying hes our "best passer" and "best player" ... He's straight up awful right now....leave him on the bench in that last play, period.
Sound the panic alarm they lost to a good team on the road. Season is OVER!

Yep, no need to slit wrists just yet after a one point loss.  :laugh: We've been competitive in all 3 losses - other than losing it with a few mins to go against Toronto the other losses have been one-possession losses. This early in the season I think we're on the right track.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D
