8:20 left. The Celtics, as ugly as this has been, still have just three turnovers.
Three quarters are in the books and the Celtics lead the Jazz 61-55. Bradley and Crowder have 13 points apiece, while Thomas has 11.
Nothing else is working. Time to run the offense through Luigi.
There is a part of me that wants to call every lineup with Jerebko in it, the Jonas Brothers.
Now Bass in there. Olynyk still on the bench.
This is 4-games-in-5-nights during the lockout season level bad.
Looks like Stevens believes the Celtics need more floor-spacing than Brandon Bass provides. Crowder started for Bass, now Jerebko off bench.
I can't be positive but I'm pretty sure this is the worst game I've ever seen live.
Not sure exactly what happened there, but Jae Crowder did not appear to enjoy somebody messing with his teammate.
The Celtics have scored 45 points over the first 2.5 quarters despite only two turnovers. I'm almost impressed.
3rd quarter stats: Avery Bradley 11, Utah Jazz 8.
Crowder playing power forward was basically the only thing that allowed Boston to score through the first two quarters.
Jae Crowder, very good in the first half, starts the second for Brandon Bass.
Jae Crowder's 13 points have the Celtics on top of the Jazz 34-33 at halftime. C's lead despite shooting just 33%. http://t.co/6SHbrq4r8n
Celtics and Jazz combined for 67 points in the first half (Celtics 34- Jazz 33)
There were 81 shots attempted in the first half. And 53 misses.
Turner just dribbled around aimlessly, ruined Cs best chance at 2-for-1, THEN fired up a bad shot. But Smart steal/and-1 made it not matter.
Celts trail Utah 26-24 and we're 7:01 into 2nd quarter... Yes, this is still the shot clock era.
Celtics are shooting just 16-of-70 (22 percent) from 3-point range in their last three games.
With Sullinger down, only four active Celtics were actually drafted by the Celtics: Olynyk, Young, Smart and Bradley all out there right now
So Youtube’s auto tweets made my twitter say the Celtics are playing the Kings, not the Jazz. Will have that fixed in a minute.
Avery Bradley suffered a left elbow contusion. He is available to return tonight, according to Celtics PR
Avery Bradley suffered a left elbow contusion, per Celtics PR, and is available to return.
We've got a defensive battle at the Garden, as the Jazz lead the Celtics 19-18 after 1Q. Jae Crowder leads all scorers with eight points.
Kelly Olynyk is 7 feet tall and looks like a shooting guard standing next to Gobert.
Kelly Olynyk checks in with 1:30 to go in the first, coming back from injury.
The Jazz have 7 rookies on their roster right now.
Avery Bradley is heading back to the Celtics locker room with what appears to be an arm issue.
Avery Bradley is grabbing his arm. He just headed back to the locker room.
Jerebko coming off the bench before Olynyk. Also, Jae Crowder at the 4 was working. Now he shifts to 3.
The last time Kelly Olynyk played, the city of Boston was covered in piles of snow. Oh wait ...
C's lead Utah 12-11 with about 4 minutes left in the 1Q and it's almost as if both teams played games in different cities last night.
NBA announces Marcus Smart as Eastern Conference Rookie of Month. (Wiggins wins in West).
4 points for the Celtics in the game's opening 5 minutes. Time for Isaiah Thomas.
Isaiah Thomas, by far, gets the loudest applause from the Celtics crowd when he checks into a game.
Celtics announce that Marcus Smart has been named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for February.
I wonder if Smart's the only rookie to get ROM -- and prolly deserve it -- in month he averaged 9.8 points on 35.4% shooting.
Congratulations to Marcus Smart, who has been named NBA's Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for February. http://t.co/z0sbLnZPUd
LeBron James and Russell Westbrook were named NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Month.
That's the Eastern Conference rookie of the month, of course. Wiggins got it out West.
