That's surprising. I guess we had two huge blowouts and the other games were all close, so we've blown out more teams and been blown out by fewer teams than our rivals. Pretty interesting.

Jaylen makes an interesting point about wanting sometimes to get away from basketball to take a breath and when you can't it's tough. It wouldn't surprise me if some of that last game was just the mental toll this bubble puts on everyone. And the longer you're there, the more potential for this weight to get heavier. In other news, I love how close Mitchell is with the Jays. I know it will never happen but it would be nice to see him here.

The Bucks not being in the top 10 is a bit disorienting.

I feel like nobody is talking about the fact that we were up by 40 points vs the Raptors. I actually like being the slept-on team tho.

Love JB, though I think a lot of us normies would love nothing more than to forget about reality for a while and get paid millions. Everyone has their struggle but there are a lot of people working jobs where they do not get to see their families for extended periods.

Can Tacko and Waters play in the last game if Brad wants to? I feel like it's a no but I can't remember.

I think the main 6 for sure are not playing in the final game. Heard we will see much of tacko.

Pelicans had the easiest schedule and only finished ahead of the hapless Wiz, cruising Lakers and the Kings. That's a yikes from me.

Add this to the Celtics record books...

Jayson Tatum (23.4 ppg), Jaylen Brown (20.3 ppg), and Kemba Walker (20.4 ppg) became just the 2nd trio in Celtics history to each average 20+ points per game in a single season. Bailey Howell, John Havlicek, and Sam Jones did it back in 1966-67.

Something totally random and unexpected -- Daniel Theis is second on the team in win shares this season behind Jayson Tatum.

I'm curious about the fake crowd noise during the games. Do the players hear all that, or is that noise strictly for the TV audience? Anybody know?

Forgot which podcast I heard it on -- they initially had the fake noise only for the TV audience but it was so freaking quiet in the arenas that they decided to add in-game music and whatever noise/sound effects in the arenas too, but not as loud.

Scal asked about it, he and Mike are obviously not there. I remember a mention about how quiet it is there from JVG or someone who is there. Also, I remember someone trying to say that the fans at home can cheer and that makes sounds? I don't believe that. Either the players can hear the fan or we at home can? I think it's just pumped in sounds much like a TV sitcom. I mean if you had sounds from the fans at home it seems like you'd get all kinds of background stuff- TVs on, kids playing, wives yelling exc. I also can't imagive someone watching the game at home chanting "D-Fence!"
