No doubt that the team shows up motivated to play. The question is whether or not the team can STAY motivated to play. A bum 2nd or 3rd quarter will probably happen. It’s on the Raps to kill us by double digits in one of those quarters

I feel like this game will go either 2 ways. One, the Celtics play a hard fought, close game that they win. Or... Toronto comes out and punches us in the mouth with us losing by 15+ and leaving us in even more dismay going forward. I truthfully don't see anything in between.

With that said though, prepare for a blowout Celtics win or a very close Raptors win  :P

I'm starting to get weary of upcoming Celtics games since you really don't know what level of effort they will put up on a night to night basis.

Since it's the Raptors at home I believe that they will bring their 'A' game.

Let's go Celts!

This is an absolute must-win for the Celtics. They need to show that they've put all the drama of the past week behind and beat one of the East frontrunners. I want to see Gordon back to his aggressive form, not the lost-looking guy we had the last few games. Want to see Jaylen continue to be aggressive, Al to be influential, and Kyrie to show no ill effects from his injury.

Not expecting a win. I do know they will be dismal in the third to either blow a lead or get behind by 15 plus.


Maybe Hayward will hit his season average of 9 points.

Return of Kyrie, Smart and Baynes tonight.
Think bench shows up big time.
Celtics by 5 in a close game

Oddly, I think we will win comfortably, and then probably lose our next game (don't even know who we're playing next).  We're good for short spurts, but have developed no culture to sustain winning consistently.

I expect Danny Green to make every 3 point shot he takes tonight. Guy just does not miss vs Boston. And Lowery will cry his way to getting every [dang] call.

I'm more worried about Leonard. He dominated in our previous two meetings.

Over those two games Leonard averaged 31 points, 12,5 rebounds, 3,5 assists, 2 steals and +10,5 plus/minus. Most concerning is that he went to the free throw line 20 times in total over those games. He didn't shoot particularly well though: 42/25/90 (= 52,7 TS%).
