Welcome back Gordon!

Solid win tonight.  The current lineup seems to be working.  Jalenís got to come off the bench and kick some butt when he gets back.   Hopefully he can embrace that.

great win.  didn't fold down the stretch.  best game by Hayward as a C.  anyone else hold their breath when Hayward went up for the alley oop and didn't land right?

He's more like Eric Williams than Lou Williams

Took you long enough to be back, Gordon Hayward. Welcome home!

Good thing we didn't trade him, huh ?

They freak me out every time they run that play, I think Iím permanently traumatized

Why would they still run that play for Hayward - why tempt fate and scarred tissue ?

I think it's the "if you fall off the horse you have to get right back on it" principle.

Nope, was happy they ran the play (think they did against the Cavs too).

Yes I did. Actually they ran that the last two games. It just freaks me out when I see it but I guess it is great therapy to get him over it even though I am not over it.

I see so many nevative comments about brown.. last week about hayward.. let the team adjust itself to all this talent.. some will adjust early some not so early.. but.. hayward will find himself sooner rather than later.. brown has so much talent physical strength and ia great in defense..horford will rise again at the playoffs... i am not afraid.. i would be if there was no talent.. and jaylen is not eric williams.. in any team he would be astarter... he is a great defender who can easily score 15p... and he is only 21...

Not just Brown.

Horford, Hayward, Rozier. Even some about Tatum and Baynes. It has been a neg-fest around here, when really this team has just needed time to gel.

Brown and the rest will be fine, They have talent and drive. Just gotta mesh it together.

Hayward needs that play for his confidence and to get over that terrible injury.

finally Brad got some foot soldiers in the starting lineup. All we had before were officers. I am concerned that just like Doc Rivers Brad had to back into these adjustments.

Brad is showing he is more Doc Rivers than Popovich.
