85-75 is an absurd score for a half of basketball.

The biggest problem for the Celts? Their frontcourt.

They don’t have a PF who can defend Siakam, Ben, Giannis or AD.

Then they don’t have a C to defend Biid.

They aren’t made to compete now. They were built to beat pre-KD Warriors but the game has changed.

Look at that, Trey Burke is off the Sixers and really good at basketball again. Seems to be a trend.

Trey played well for us, too. Brett just clearly wanted no part of giving him oppurtunities.

I think De'Aaron Fox is going to leap Donovan Mitchell as the best young guard in the NBA.

There was no point in having Trey Burke on the roster, if the goal is to win in the playoffs. He wasn't going to see the court in a playoff game, because every opposing team would attack him mercilessly until we get him off the court.

Shot looks good. Still needs to refine that shot

Rockets last night attempted 61 3pt attempts against the Bucks. Made 21.

This lead them to beat the Bucks that shot 48.9% from the field.

One upside with jacking up 3s is you need not force things that lead to less turnovers

I feel like Fultz and Nerlens are on a similar hair trajectory. Both had flat tops coming in (with varying degrees of height) and now have the oversized braided ponytails.

The fact that they were both defunct Process era draft picks add to the fun.

The Rockets were already annoying with the constant 3 point chucking, now that the moved Capella it is even worse in terms of shot variety. I am impressed they even had 30 2 point attempts. Interesting experiiment nonetheless.

I guess T.J Warren just really likes Mickey Mouse.

Look at the score
TLC has 18pts. The refs are weird this bubble

Damn, TLC and Simba taking down the mighty Bucks. Feels like that time MCW beat the Heat.

Was just looking at the standings... when's the last time 3 teams under .500 made the playoffs in the same year?
