Guilty. Yeah, it was pretty miserable. Feels a little masochistic as this point.


You earned a medal! I'm out for the rest of the season, save maybe a few quarters if Frank comes back.

Nothing to see here fellas, just move right along

*** 111 points through 3 quarters, lol, lol, got to get Kanter out of there, he's a sieve, what? what do you mean he's not on the team? when did that happen....

Actually, I definitely would have watched had Frankie been around, for the hope of seeing this again:

I think the Sixers had to find a way to beat the Celtics at least once this season.

Yeah.... but momentum can be important.  Conference final if Celts can get there would be interesting

Right.  Which is why I thought the game last night was important.

I think Dave Zinkoff was reffing the game

The East is going to be a fun war. Not sure the Celts will survive it. About the only thing consistent about their play has been their inconsistency.

Why?

There's star power, young players, history to market.

I'm pretty sure the league might prefer the Celts to Milwaukee, Toronto or Indy in the Finals, Philly would be a push.

Celts have been way too inconsistent/infuriating this year, for lots of reasons. They need to get on the same page soon.

Star power?

I think Kyrie's decision is a good story line, should they fail.

And how long do they wait with Stevens?

I think the Celts have suffiicent "star power" for TNT/ABC/ESPN to market with KI, Tatum Brown Horford.

YMMV

and the KI's story line of  "will he/won't he" is there

IMO there's a lot to sell and very attractive about the Celts

except half the time they play with their collective heads up their ass.

Brad get some blame, but he had an unusual situation to balance with Gordo coming back at way less than 100%, but he needed PT, the KI drama, Rozier having an off year,  and the AD trade talk that added insecurity and all but killed the Lakers.

Brad's  a good coach (though he sucks at calling TOs-sometimes I swear we're watching different games) but he's safe. Ainge gets some blame too.

its been a strange year.

I'm seeing that Jim Jam signed for the rest of this year and a PHX team option for next season.
https://nba.nbcsports.com/2019/03/21/report-suns-signing-jimmer-fredette-to-two-year-contract/

Being reported as a 2 year deal.  technically true, but really it's more like a 10-day contract with a team option on next year.

Anyway a chance.
Hit some 3's pass to Ayton & Booker, that's my advice.
If he gets minutes.

They play at Utah on Monday, so they could easily insert him for a few minutes to the crowd's delight . . .

I want a Toronto-Milwaukee conf. final.

Remember when Vince missed the last shot in Game 7 to attend his college graduation? Or something like that?

PHX has a slew of players dinged up.
Tyler Johnson, Holmes, TJ Warren, Oubre.

Uber had been playing well until he hurt his thumb.
Averaged 24 Pts his last 4 games.  Had 3 straight games with 2 assists.  Incremental improvement.

For PHX, Uber has averaged 17 / 5 / 1.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 40 games.  45% / 33 / 76 shooting splits.  4 FTA's per.  Pretty solid
numbers for a 23 year old.

Since becoming a starter post-AS, in 12 games, Uber 20 Pts  5.7 boards 1.6 assists, 2 steals and a block.  47% FG and 34% on 3's.

Edit: Phoenix Suns forward Kelly Oubre Jr. will undergo a minor procedure on his left thumb and miss the rest of the season.
