Both Jays went off and we won by a lot of points and it was cool!

Great Games by Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Dennis Schroder. Rob Williams III and Al Horford were impactful. Not much from the rest of the guys, but it didn't matter with the All-NBA games from JT and JB and an All-Star performance by Dennis Schroder.

An alternative view:

Pts. + Rebounds + (0.5 x Assists) + Steals + (0.5 x Blocks) - Missed FGs - (0.5 x Missed Free Throws) - Turnovers - (0.5 x Fouls)

+32 Jayson Tatum (37 minutes)
+28.5 Jaylen Brown (35 minutes)
+19.5 Dennis Schroder (34 minutes)


+12 Rob Williams III (23 minutes)
+9.5 Al Horford (28 minutes)

+4 Josh Richardson (29 minutes)
+3.5 Romeo Langford (3 minutes)
+2.5 Enes Freedom (7 minutes)
+2 Bruno Fernando (3 minutes)
+2 Grant Williams (23 minutes)
0 Aaron Nesmith (3 minutes)
0 Payton Pritchard (11 minutes)

-1.5 Brodric Thomas (3 minutes)

Jayson with a superb game at both ends edges Jaylen for the VC. Schroo was outstanding in the 3rd banana role tonight also. Grant played excellent D in his minutes. Horf much better than recently. Except for the fall off in the 2nd quarter, this is one of the C's best played games of the season. Maybe they're finally getting this how-to-play-basketball thing.

Can we play the Pacers every night

Also the East is ROLLING this year, every win counts right now. Look at the Hawks, who are in danger of falling way out of the playoffs

Tatum had the best game (he's a great defensive player), followed by Jaylen Brown, but I get the feeling that Schroder's play was crucial for the ease of victory.

Jaylen was very good, but this is Tatum’s tonight.

I know, I’m a hater.

Tatum 33 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists on 11-19 shooting
Brown 34 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists on 11-19 shooting

Pretty nice stuff!!!

Schroder 23 points, RW3, Big Al and G Williams all played well. Celtics played the right way all night.

21-21 .500 Happy Days are here again!!! Look out Philly!

Got to go with Jayson Tatum for VC tonight. Played a great all around game tonight.

Let’s Go Celtics!!!!

Tatum or Brown, Brown or Tatum. Pretty nearly identical games.

I think that's only the second game this year where both guys had 30+.

Can we give VCs to the Jays? They both played awesome tonight. Tatum set the tone early with his 4 threes, then Brown stretched the lead in the 2nd and 3rd. Then Tatum made sure the Pacers wouldn't miunt any sort of rally in the 4th with his buckets.

That's just beautiful play all game long by the Jays. Gonna give it to Jaylen because I'm biased lol.

Jayson over Jaylen, because:
-- I liked his early domination (scored 3 of the Cs' first 6 baskets, and assisted on 2 of the others).
-- I liked his defensive impact.
-- I forgive a couple of the entry pass TOs, because I'm glad he's trying to learn that technique.

Being back at .500 actually makes the close losses and gigantic collapses hurt even more, and lets not forget the 2 double overtime games earlier this year.

Just imagine how much different the vibes would be if they'd won the SAS and NYK games. They'd be 23-19 on a six game win streak and we'd all be starting to come around on them.

But now we at lest get two "test" games at PHI and vs CHI to see where exactly the team is at.

Good point about the two “test” games. Should be fun

I went team for i think the first ever. Probably should be JT for his play on both ends.
Schroo was probably the highest over expectation, and Brown played at an all NBA level. Even Ime probably deserves a puff tonight
