Well, no matter the result, they're not going back to Beantown until at least Monday night. Also, they're in Orlando.

If I see the same uninspired shiat tonight, I'll assume there was something else really going on there.

Celtics win by 11. Heard it here first

Lots of stories about how pissed off and loud the Celtics were after Game 2.  The press conference after was as shook as I've ever seen him.

We'll see if it makes a difference. Might be overkill but if I were Stevens, I'd show them a video of all the Miami deflections, and all the deflected and loose balls that Miami chased down.  I don't even know if there's an official stat that covers them, but Miami was killing Boston with those

 Crowder is freaking tough and on point.  Funnily enough, I remember him being the same way with Boston a few years ago
 
2020-09-19 8:55:38 PM  
Of course I go outside to get something from my truck before the game and I get distracted watering the plants. So now I'm five minutes behind.

Him and Smart on the same team was a lot of tough and hustle on the court.

Not to spoil anything (much) but you have a lot of Celtics going to the rim in your near future
 
2020-09-19 8:59:01 PM  
I'm basically caught up now after that commercial break.
 
2020-09-19 8:59:46 PM  
Celtics getting an early lead is nothing new. It's those last four minutes of the game where they've fallen apart.
 
2020-09-19 9:01:02 PM  
Brown practicing witchcraft on that long bomb to him.

I was always kind of surprised that Boston let him go, but I don't remember the circumstances:  if he left via trade, failure to re-sign, etc.  Regardless, he always seemed like a great fit

They let him go so they could pay Hayward.

According to wiki he was part of the Kyrie Irving trade.

Oh, that's right...he played with Cleveland for a year.

He has been pretty unwanted.

Miami is his fourth team after leaving Boston in 2017.

/I'd forgotten he started off as a Mav

Two more quarters like that and one other quarter that doesn't totally suck.
 
2020-09-19 9:14:16 PM  
I'll tune in for 4Q as I can only watch on my phone which has a battery life of about an hour these days (only a slight exaggeration)

I'd swap out to another one but honestly that's all the battery life I need for the most part
 
2020-09-19 9:15:20 PM  
I wanna hang out with Grant Williams.

CSB:  I'm a Kentucky fan; Kanter went there for the typical 1 year, but the NCAA never cleared him to play.  So he was in Lexington but went straight to the NBA.  I went to Lexington for the fall meet at Keeneland (beautiful horse track). While I was there, I bought a big Free Enes pin, which was being done kind of for comedic value as UK was trying to get him approved.

We did the thing where you get a little dressed up for the fall meet.  Then I slapped my big Free Enes pin on my lapel.  All day long people either laughed and said "free Enes!" or gave me the snotty horse crowd stink eye. I have the feeling they thought Enes was some redneck, regardless they disapproved of my shenanigans.

Good times.  And I still have my Free Enes pin.  Go get 'em Enes.

/Miami has 2 UK guys, Adebayo and Herro

It's strange and makes me wonder what the problem is.  He always seems to me like a solid role player

Dreaded double digit lead.

Second scariest thing to not having a double digits lead.

Do you mean Grant, or Lou? :)
 
2020-09-19 9:21:36 PM  
Miami...heating up.
 
2020-09-19 9:22:48 PM  
I know everyone has said it already, but Herro is a ruthless stone cold killer
 
2020-09-19 9:24:01 PM  
I have to check out that "Antebellum" movie.
 
2020-09-19 9:33:36 PM  
If they could get Robinson to foul out...
 
2020-09-19 9:34:19 PM  
Another brilliant defensive effort thwarted by a prayer shot.
 
2020-09-19 9:34:49 PM  

Naido: I know everyone has said it already, but Herro is a ruthless stone cold killer


So he's got 15 points in 12 minutes.  So he just needs to play the entire game and put up 60
 
2020-09-19 9:37:15 PM  
Finally some hustle on the offensive boards.

F*cking Herro.
 
2020-09-19 9:37:39 PM  
Was reading a Zach Lowe column earlier about how the Celtics could come back and win the series.  He recommended running a pick and roll right down the middle of that zone.  They should at least try it; Lowe knows his shiat
 
2020-09-19 9:39:14 PM  
He's like your favorite writer. You talk about him enough. Are you him?
 
2020-09-19 9:40:34 PM  
Causin a bunch of turnovers all of the sudden.
 
2020-09-19 9:43:41 PM  
If that went in from halfcourt I would have turned the game off.
 
2020-09-19 9:45:13 PM  

jaylectricity: He's like your favorite writer. You talk about him enough. Are you him?


Eh, I wish :). Been pretty much a fanboy since Grantland.  There just aren't that many good basketball writers anymore. He's good at making advanced stat info interesting, but also does good game breakdowns that make me feel like I learned something.

I actually can't think of a good, current comparison in any of the sports that I follow.  Everyone ends up in TV; I still like to read about sports, especially basketball.
 
2020-09-19 9:56:23 PM  
There is nothing about this game that's told me it will be any different than the first two games.
 
2020-09-19 9:58:13 PM  
Kendrick Perkins cracks me up. He's on the Celtics pre- post-game and halftime shows on the local Celtics channel.
 
2020-09-19 10:02:03 PM  
Crowder's form even looks perfect.  Makes me wonder how his regular season percentage is so low
 
2020-09-19 10:04:00 PM  
He was always good in the playoffs for us. But it took him awhile to start making the three-pointers. So he might have just gotten better over the last year.
 
2020-09-19 10:07:05 PM  
How will the Celts leading the 3rd by 15 points blow it this time, let's watch and see.
 
2020-09-19 10:07:51 PM  
More of this, please.

That's the thing about this game, is we've seen this before. So we don't know if they've learned any lessons yet. And we won't know until the last few minutes of regulation.
 
2020-09-19 10:10:20 PM  
I will say, the "visiting" team has won the last 11 games the Celtics played in. They haven't won at "home" since game 2 of the first round.
 
2020-09-19 10:10:32 PM  
I looked up the Grant Williams/Tacko Fall podcast they mentioned.  Looks like it's actually called Anything is Poddable.   I'd check it out, but Grant Williams went to Tennessee.

/kidding, mostly

They're moving a lot better off-ball than they were, even early in games, and are more aggressive.  Just have to keep doing it, obviously
 
2020-09-19 10:11:50 PM  
I don't have room for another podcast, but I'll give it a listen. Do they have guests? Sometimes I check out a new podcast with an episode with a guest I know.
 
2020-09-19 10:12:34 PM  
I'd love to see Brown and Crowder in a fight.
 
2020-09-19 10:13:49 PM  
Herro used up all this shots in the first half.
