Michael Porter Jr is nowhere close to being a SF or wing type player. He can be really good as a 4. But I have never seen him beat somebody off the dribble.
I apologize for the things I have said in the past. :cry:

Bam/Duncan Robinson actions are brutal to stop. It's basically pick your poision.
The greatest movie bet of all time:

"I want the Celtics to cover, I want Celtics halftime, I want Garnett points and rebounds."

I lost the bet so I Hate Truth18

Dozier looks good for Denver.

Denver should've been up more at half though.

you've also barely seen him play. He definitely has the first step and quickness to beat guys off the dribble as a wing. Denver has proven to be one of the best drafting teams in the NBA unlike someone I know

Breaking news: Mr. never has made a positive comment about the Celtics once again made a negative comment!

Denver's offensive sets are atrocious

Without Murray and Harris the talent offensively just isn't there.

Going all the way back to high school I just don't see it in his game. He can shoot, he can finish, and he rebounds really well. I think he has really good potential. I just don't see the wing scorer that some do. Time will tell.

Celtics are all but locked into the 3 seed and are treating it as such. Even if they go just 4-4, Miami would need to go 7-1 to pass them and get the 3 seed.

In high school and college he was always playing the 4 or 5 and at 6'10" was bigger than most so taking guys off the dribble wasn't exactly necessary. He barely played in college so going by those games means nothing.



there's several instances of him either taking guys off the dribble to attack the basket or to create space for a jumper. He's a baby who hasn't played much at all due to coming off a major injury. The rest of this season will just be him getting used to the speed of the game. Should he stay healthy, with Milsap, Plumlee, Grant and Vonleh leaving next season, he'll have his chance to shine or not. I think he's too in love with his outside shot. Part of that I think is his fear of banging with the trees down low due to his injury history. Once his confidence grows and the game slows down he has a chance to be a superstar.

Clippers taking out their frustration over the Lakers loss on the Pelicans. NINE made threes in the 1st Q. Spoiler alert: Paul George is still really good. Tatum should pattern his two-way game after PG's.

EDIT: They added SIX threes in the 2nd Q. Clips still have the best 10-man rotation in the league. PatBev/Shamat/Kawhi/PG/Zubac then LouWill/Jackson/Mook/Green/Trez off the bench and are the most flexible in terms of style of play.

Serious proposal: NBA should send the Suns, Wizards, and Pelicans home as soon as tomorrow.

Is Embiid the most immature superstar since Dwight Howard?
Read on Twitter

Meanwhile, Horford is -17 in 10 minutes lol. Keep cashing them checks though.

TJ Warren has 29 pts in the 1st half.

The Raptors are a top 3 team in terms of knowing exactly who they are and what they want to do. Thunder and Bucks are the other two.

Aside: Nick Nurse coaching in a hoodie. I think he wins COTY just for that.

Sixers suck, but you just know when we face them in the playoffs, we will have a nightmare with them.

This is an issue for Philly and is why I’m not scared of them in the playoffs

50-piece for TJ Warren.

Horford -26 in 23 minutes lol.

Return to Boston Celtics
