Not the greatest basketball game I've ever seen but I'm glad we won it. Thought we showed some good heart and toughness down the stretch. What did you guys think about the whole thing? Please do share.

VC by a slim margin to Jaylen over Rob. Rob was excellent all game. Brown carried us down the stretch, led the team in scoring, rebounding, and assists. Tatum hit a couple of big shots, but 8 turnovers is UNACCEPTABLE. Really ugly game, but counts for 1 in the win column. We are now 3-11 in games decided by 5 or less. Yay!

I'll go with the 26/15/6 and 0 turnovers from Brown, even if it did take him 26 shots. His game was the least ugly tonight, and that's about the nicest thing you can say in a game like this. But Rob is a deserving option as well.

Hope Smart is okay, thigh contusion doesn't sound like a long-term issue.

Celtics can get back to .500 Wednesday.

Also, I was glad to see the JRich-Brown-Tatum-Grant-Timelord closing lineup. They have moved away from the Smart-Schroder pairing, and that lineup shows they are starting to understand you need spacing out there. Last step is ditching the two-big starting lineup.

Even when Pritchard comes back they still need another wing shooter. Playing an 8.8 man rotations with the starters, Schroder, JRich, Grant and some Kanter doesn't really seem sustainable during the regular season. But hey, its an adjustment which is progress.

Rob or Jaylen for the VC, unless you want to go Other/Team defense.

Rob is the one guy who played like a star all the way through. He was just a really good defensive center, both in shotblocking/shot-altering and in post defense too. He also had 6 offensive rebounds, excellent scoring efficiency on low volume, and a bunch of steals.

Jaylen meanwhile had mediocre shooting efficiency on high volume, 6/0 A/TO, and a whole lot of rebounds.

Celtics should have blown them out if they came to play from the start but they didn’t. I’m glad they found a way to win a game being down late. At least they got that done for once which could be good for confidence I guess that they can close games out.

VC is a toss up between Rob and JB.

Celtics need overtime to beat the scrub Pacers. I imagine they are back to being contenders in the eyes of the delusion Celtics fans! :crazy:

Gimme Rob on this one. Brown hit some clutch shots throughout though.

Schroder needs to go immediately and Brad needs to find a real PG. -9 in his 20 min and the offense completely stalled out with him. Zero burn again for Langford and Nesmith in a game where no one could shoot smh

Jaylen 6 assists and 0 turnovers. Dude is learning to become a capable playmaker but the haters will continue to hate and doubt :nod: :nod: :nod:

Probably one of the dumbest, sloppiest games I've seen. One would think both teams were point-shaving with the way they were playing :noway:

Still, a win is a win. Clutch shot by Tatum to force overtime, then Brown just took over in OT. It's still frustrating that this team still lacks killer instinct; when the Pacers went on that 6-minute drought in the 3rd, the Cs should have ran away with the game, but unfortunately they let the Pacers' malaise infect them as well. Oh well.

RW3 was great. Jaylen Brown lead the Celtics in points, rebounds and assists with 26 points, 15 rebounds, 6 assists and 0 turnovers in 44 minutes. Brown is VC for me.

I told everyone Tatum and Brown are just going to keep getting better and they are getting better. Tatum and Brown have to do everything!

Time for Stevens to get them some help.

The Celtics live rent free in your head. Meanwhile, I'm not sure anyone on here has given a single **** about the Raptors since Kawhi left (except that one Playoff series where we sent them packing).

I voted for the last option — the other team. They somehow managed to suck worse than we did.

Honestly though this team is desperate for a PG. Brad better find someone at the deadline — not expecting a star but a serviceable veteran who can run the offense and make it easier for everyone else.

I went with Jaylen. He was the best player in the 4th and in OT. Rob was great also.

Tatum had a **** game but it was still a 24 and 12 with the biggest shot of the game.. So he deserves a seat at the table also.

Absurdly thin production from everybody else though.

Might've been the hardest win to watch in like two decades lol

We won because we beat the only team slightly worse in crunch time than us. Ime coached like pure **** tonight, Tatum and Brown bailed him out
