    Boston clunking from deep, but doing excellent in the flop department. This game is a grinder

    Why is it that players like Josh Hart and Derrick Jones Jr got better after leaving Portland?

    I someday hope Scoot is like Payton Pritchard. A contributor on a team playing in the Finals.

    Celtics winning basically playing three guards.

    Jones Jr developed. Hart played great for us. I didn’t see him get any better on the Knicks.

    I did not see Jrue being the leading scorer for the Celtics as an option?

    Who had Boston winning the dame trade on their bingo card? Jrue is the truth.

    Agree about Josh Hart. Don't think DJJr developed that much, he just started playing next to two all-world point guards. That simplifies the game a lot for role players.

    Bullshit. White’s block was goaltending and Brown fouled him. Should’ve been 2 point game.

    I'm sure he would also have done that if we'd traded for him, and also done it for Boston, who would've offloaded some shit on us for him.

    ...if the Celtics hadn't had a big enough cushion so it didn't matter
