    The Pacers play a similar fast-paced style to the Rockets, but are worse at it. Should be a comfortable win for Houston.

    Boston announcers observing Kyle Lowry's free throw numbers are way down. Another victim of Adam Silver's reckless campaign to destroy NBA stars' careers. amirite?

    Another great start from Dragić: 12 points on 5-7 shooting and two assists in first quarter. Usually he gets worse as the game nears the end. Here's to hope today's not the case!

    Hopefully he can maintain that Eurobasket form throughout the year. Since we're on the topic, Lowry is playing like **** this year. :oops:

    Yeah, even watching them against the Celtics is hard.

    Regardless, I'm going to the game Tuesday. Hopefully CP3 returns.

    With Brad Stevens, Kyrie and Hayward, the Celts are legit. They would represent the East in the 2018 Finals if not for Hayward's injury.

    Van vleet doing the "Marcus smart" against the boston celtics.

    Boston commentators are the worst.

    Celts are amazing. He didn't shoot the ball all that well but Tatum just makes plays in crunch time.

    Is there a verticality rule on elbows? I hate it when guys throw them but when the defender sticks his face forward into the vertical space of the guy with the ball...

    Iso Ball with DeRozan like he is some kind of superstar. He is good, but no superstar. Dumb to go Iso when its clearly not working.

    DeRozan is far and away the best closer on that team. Might have been Lowry a couple of years ago but that time has clearly passed.

    The Raptors inability to close is why they ain't no contender. They are the definition of a soft team.
