Tatum out with a shoulder injury.

It's time to start Hayward.

Questionable, not out yet.

Though with his play and effort lately, it might benefit us if he’s out. Will be interesting to see if Hayward or Brown starts if Tatum is out. I imagine it’s Hayward.
It won't be Brown because Hayward is Brad's son and Brown apparently did something to Brad's family with the hate he's getting from Brad.

A can't lose game lol, if we lose we'll just improve the chances of the Clippers pick conveying.

I am thinking more about our playoff run and alot less about draft picks.
Our playoff run might be better at 4/5 than 3, I just want to avoid Detroit in the 1st round at all costs.

Their lack of wings leaves them without a possibility to matchup with us.
Imagine Kennard-Tatum or Glenn Robinson-Hayward, that's with Al spreading Dre out.
They don't scare me one bit.

Clippers are surprisingly good. just keep Harrell away from basket- team effort!. it would help that we have Baynes now.

I'll be happy when this west coast trip is over- I've already slept through the win in Golden State and Gordon Hayward's winning shot against the Kings!

Same. Although, I managed to stay up for the GSW game. Passed out for the Sac one and there's no way I'm making it to 10:30 tonight.

This might be a tough one.  The Celtics have now spent 4 days in LA.  That has to catch up to you at some point.

Now, this is a trap game. The team has been in La La land for days now.
If they do manage to get a win, it's a definite positive sign.

What bothered me against the Lakers Saturday night was this team still falls into a pattern of lazy basketball with individual players doing their own thing. Rozier plays to get noticed, Tatum looks lazy, tired and board and Morris picks his spots. 

Horford is playing great ball, Kyrie is looking top 5 or 6 at times. Smart is doing Smart like things, Hayward looks reliable, and Brown is playing like he's figured it out. He still makes defensive mistakes but he knows and likes his new role. If he could only learn to pass out of trouble at the rim, he would be dangerous.

If there is any game I wouldn’t be upset about losing the rest of the way, it’s this one. Not only for the pick’s sake, but we already had a very successful trip regardless of tonight.

But I believe we are seeking revenge, and will find it.

No Tatum tonight.

Hayward or Brown to replace him in starting lineup?

Really? I think we can take them. I mean I guess it doesn't matter whether we get the 3rd or 4th seed because we'll have HCA regardless. I just don't want the 5th seed and risk getting bounced in the 1st round. I think HCA is very important in the playoffs.

I'd say probably Hayward.

Go Celts! I think I would like to see Brown get the start in Jayson's place. We need this win to pressure for the 4 seed.

It's tough.  I want to say Brown but I think I'd have to agree that it's Hayward.  If it was Morris out, I think I'd say Brown. 

Let's go Celtics, make this road trip a 4-0 sweep and let's come home and get to business passing Indy and possibly Philly as well.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I just want to see the same enthusiasm, effort and commitment (particularly on the defensive end) that we saw in the first 3 games of this road trip. I want to see Gordon remain aggressive and continue to impact the game whether the ball finds him or not. I want to see Terry and JB switched on defensively and not be turnstiles. I'd like them to keep moving the ball the way they have been this road trip - 28 assists vs GS, 26 vs Sac and 32 vs LAL (isn't it interesting that the game that Kyrie sat out is the game where we had the least assists...I thought he was a ballstopper  ??? ).

If they do that I'll be satisfied win or lose (though if we do all that it should result in a win).
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D
