I am just getting into my hotel after the game and a late night meal. Wow what an experience that was awesome. It was really cool to see everything up close I had great seats. Brad giving Smart some tough love yanking him a few possessions, Kyrie encouraging and bringing him back up. Smarts defense is just amazing to see in person he is a [dang] hawk his defensive IQ and instincts are amazing. As I was saying earlier Mike Zarren was just chilling in normal seats like 2 rows beside me. I wanted to hit him up to take a picture but he was chatting it up with a couple dudes, I didnít want to intrude. Headband Tatum was clutch he looks even smoother in person. The players are massive and freak athletes but the game is a lot slower than it looks on TV.

During halftime me and a couple Celts fans were chatting it up grabbing some brews and all of a sudden we see Cedric Maxwel just walking right by us back down to the floor, we hit him up for a pic and he obliged was cool as hell. He said the Celtics are back and he was sensing something special heading into the playoffs. Kyrie who I was prob closest to was hilarious on the bench, really engaged and just acting a fool with Yabu and Timelord dancing and cheering his butt off. It sucks Kyrie didnít play but all in all the experience was awesome and something Iíll never forget.

Cool story. Sounds like a blast. I was able to actually stay up for this one and thankfully they pulled this one out. What sticks out is Gordon missing 2 free throws then fouling Hield for 3 foul shouts but hitting the shot with 2 seconds left for redemption. Another thing that stands out is referee #57 calling everything for Sacramento and against us. Lane violations on free throws against us both when Sacramento shooting to give an extra shot and against us when JB was shooting to lose that point. And the inbound play after Hayward hit the shot where they actually inbounded the ball but gave the coach the timeout so that they could inbound right there on the offensive end. This guy isn't related to Donaghy is he?


Flop tough guy

I loved Gordonís confidence in taking that game winning shot we need him confident. He only scored 12 but was pretty influential

Only downside to Gordon playing well is Jaylen Brown will not be able to play in crunch time.

Teams that aren't playing as big, they can put Brown in for Morris

I think Brad still doesn't trust Jaylen's decision making.

Brown still makes a lot of mistakes, like trying to out-jump every defender he faces.

And Brown needs to know when to shoot and when not to shoot.


Also, his FTs needs to improve if he wants to play in crunch time.

Brown has played during crunch time a lot of our last few games. CBS trusts him plenty.
Plus, it's not like Morris is renowned for making good decisions

Morris is the better shooter.

We'll know for sure in the playoffs if Morris continues to play instead of Brown in crunch time.
Except over the last 20 games Morris has been shooting 27% from three. He's ice cold

Morris has always been a good 3pt shooter his whole career.

He'll be fine.
He's solid, but he's not fantastic. 36% is alright, but nothing special
Pretty much around Jaylen's percentages I think, and Morris has never had a season like Jaylen's last year.

The difference is the FT shooting.

Jaylen just shot 64% from the FT line in the playoffs last season.

It's hard to trust Brown in crunch time because if he gets fouled and goes to the FT line, it becomes an adventure.

You could say that about Hayward who last night missed two crucial free throws late and Rozier against the Warriors missed THREE consecutive free throws. Dwight Howard would make at least one.

Jaylen has been shooting FTs at 72% since Thanksgiving. 75% over the last 21 games.

Great to hear you had a good time and thanks for confirming what I had seen on the TV broadcast as well - Kyrie was engaged and invested in his teammates' success.

There's a big difference.

Time will tell.

In last season's playoffs, Jaylen shot just 64% from the FT line.

That was a fun game last night.

Where was this Hayward all season??

Anyway, hopefully he's getting his confidence back.

Horford was a beast last night as well.

I really like that kid De'Aron Fox. He's still green but the talent is there and I've literally never seen another athlete that fast.

That was actually the Rockets game this past Sunday. Don't remind me, I could NOT believe that!! (and sadly I was there.)

Did you really just call two missed free throws with 19 seconds left IN THE THIRD QUARTER ďcrucial?Ē

Just stop. Ridiculous take.

Hayward is a historically very good/great FT shooter and Rozier is also good. Brown is not. Can he make a pair? Sure. Can he miss both? More likely than just about anyone in the team.
