    He tweeted out and said he'll be okay, thankfully. That was brutal looking

    Concussion protocol.

    Celtics just swept a four game west coast road trip without half their team.

    That was a great way to win too.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Last night's win was clutch, but the quality of teams they played was pretty low. I'm only impressed with the Blazers game. That was the only game that should've been close, even with the injuries.

    What are you talking about? Utah's a playoff team that won 23 of their last 27 going in, and we literally beat them with our B-team. They went the entire road trip without their best player (Irving), best defender (Smart), and backup center (Theis). Two of the games (including last night) we were without Morris, basically the stand-in number one option without Irving, and last night we were without Horford. Yabusele had to start and fucking Ojeleye played 30 minutes.

    More mounting evidence that Danny has done a fucking great job putting this team together. Good draft pics, good acquisitions, and the best move of all hiring Stevens.

    You can see the effect that Stevens has on each game. Last night was a prime example.

    Celts may not win a tittle this year but they are a very interesting team with a bright immediate future.

    Nah. This is pretty much nonsense Kid. What they did on this trip was remarkable.

    Regardless of if the Celtics were hurt, or who they played, sweeping a 4 game road trip, especially on West coast, is very impressive. That doesn't happen often in NBA.

    This is awesome story. Ingram looked like he belonged in the NBA, dropping 18 against the leagues best team, Houston.

    Man am I happy to see a healthy John Wall back in the playoffs, he has been amazing in this series

    Lebron James is seriously on another level in these playoffs. He has been unreal.

    If the Sixers come back in this series, the officiating in that game 4 will be looked back on as another moment of NBA ref infamy, on par with Lakers/Kings in 2002. That was absolute 100% pure bullshit concentrate. First they call two ticky-tack fouls on Tatum in the first five minutes of the game (get the other team's star in foul trouble as early as possible - straight from the Dick Bavetta/corrupt ref playbook that Tim Donaghy went over in his autobiography). That's bad enough, but THEN the second quarter rolls and they rapid-fire pretty much all of our important players into having 3 fouls before the half. We literally can't commit any more fouls or we'll lose our entire team. The Sixers go on a run because it's been established, thanks to the refs, that the Celtics aren't allowed to play defense. Same shit in the 3rd quarter, but now they call a flurry of technicals on anyone who even looks at them sideways. It was one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen in a sporting event. You cannot be more blatant about fixing a game than that, unless you stood on the scorer's table and announced your intentions to the crowd with a megaphone.

    But, of course, like clockwork, those disgusting sewer rat Philly fans who should have all been bulldozed in the womb are tarding it up saying "THERE WAS ONLY A FIVE FOUL DIFFERENCE LOL STOP BEING SALTY". Because they either didn't watch the game at all or only caught whatever glimpses they could while Alshon Jeffrey's ballsack was pounding against their chin. The refs made a bunch of ticky-tack foul calls against the Sixers once the game was locked up, for the sole purpose of evening things out for the box score. There is literally no other reason to stop play as many times as they did in the closing minutes of a decided game. You really think these bottom-feeders would just rig a game and leave the evidence lying around in plain sight?

    Yes, I am mad. Thank you for noticing.

    P.S. Joel Embiid deserves to have his nose broken into a million pieces.

    Fucking excellent post.

    The dopes on Comcast were rolling their eyes when they asked Tommy what were the three keys to the game and he said one two three the refs. I did not see the entire game as there was an Annette Benning movie on and I have always want to bang her.

    So Tommy was right. From what I did see Philly was holding a lot. There was a ton of contact.

    Oh well. The Celts need to destroy these ham and eggers Wednesday.

    Embid and The Non-Rookie are both cry baby punks.
