Escaped with a good win nevertheless

No, the Cs lost because they didn’t play Enes Kanter, right Kamster?

What’s your take Bank?

Rockets played a great 2nd half, way more physical, kept the Celts off-balance particularly in the paint, and outworked the Celts.

And Westbrook went off with a monster game.

1 point loss OT loss not happy with it, but Rockets are good.

And the game was pretty entertaining.

IMO Kanter would have been lost on D. Too slow. Might have helped boarding in the 2nd half. I can see the DNP.

Celts just finished a really tough 2 weeks mostly on the road and mostly against the best of the West and went 5-2, and generally played real solid hoops.

No one wil want to play them in a 7-gamer.

And Tatum is becoming that guy-a fucking 2-way beast

Gloating, huh?

Well, I’ll have you know that the Knix may become competitive someday in the next 100 years, if they last that long.

And, most importantly, Chico knows that the Phillies won that famous trade for Fultz.

Not gloating, just happy Carlos-the Celts are playing solid 2-way unselfish hoops and are a blast to watch again.

And while I'm not a Knick fan, I do feel for you guys, I'm serious.

You guys are great hoops fans but are stuck in purgatory,

The Dolan circle of Hell, where all your shots clank off the front-rim.

I might have been tweaking Chico a little on Tatum.

Damn my man can't even get 10 minutes off the bench.

Didn't really need him last night, (no KAT) plus Theis had a huge game

Intesresing box score from last night's Celts-TW game.

Don't recall ever seeing one quite like it before

MINNEAPOLIS — On Jan. 20, 1960, the Celtics stormed to a 144-126 win over the Knicks.

Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, Tommy Heinsohn, and Bill Sharman — future Hall of Famers who that year would lead Boston to its second of eight consecutive NBA titles — all reached the 25-point mark in the game. More than 60 years passed without that happening again.

But on Friday night, with All-Star point guard Kemba Walker out with a sore left knee, the Celtics sent a new foursome into their record books as they snagged a 127-117 win over the Timberwolves. Gordon Hayward (29 points), Jayson Tatum (28), Jaylen Brown (25), and Daniel Theis (25) led a powerful performance by the starters, who combined for 117 of the 127 points.


Box score to the Jan 20, 1960 Celts-Knicks game.

Joe Walsh's explanation about how he (belatedly) concluded that the 2020 GOP is a cult, not a political party.

Achtung, y’all.

Unfortunately Trump's increasing willingness to flaunt his authoritarian excesses are enabling most Repubs to openly express their long repressed inner-Nazi.

if it wasn't so dangerous, it would be pitiable.

2 very good teams going head to head for 58 minutes

and so many great individual performances

And Tatum is a 2-way monster

He is certainly in favor of a strong executive branch.

As long as he is on the throne.

He respects no other legal authority.

He's a fascist autocrat with a history of demeaing the office, our democracy and its institutions.

All four DoJ attorneys on the Stone case have resigned.

LOL away, Ward.

Der Donald learned his lesson.

Without meaningful oversight and a complicit Republican party he is becoming the disctator he has always dreamed of and can do whatever the fuck he wants.

Wrong color. Socialism is a Red Flag.

Grats was out by Thursday.

Adios Mook

he was one of the best and most entertaining players the sox have ever had

tough nite

As posted elsewhere

So if i understand this correctly, the take away is we helped improve the Twins chances of beating the Yankees in the ALDS with some more starting pitching, (yeah right) and then the LAD's chances of beating the Ys in the Series
