Brandon Bass corner 3! Hugs for all!
It seems like whenever Marcus Smart turns the ball over... it's a guaranteed steal for him on the other end to make up for his mistake.
Jeff Green highlight dunk alert.
Shortened contest be damned, Sully on pace for a 20-20 game with 16 points and 13 boards. 8:14 left in third.
Smart starts the second half instead of Olynyk. Green at the 4 in a really small lineup.
Kevin Garnett is not even in the building today. He's been down with a stomach virus since returning from China.
Jared Sullinger (11 points, 9 rebs) and Marcus Smart (10 points, 2 rebs) are playing well, but the Celtics trail the Nets 51-40 at halftime.
So far, this has not been a beautiful game.
Our first 11-minute quarter is in the books. The Celtics trail the Nets 24-17. Avery Bradley leads the C's with four points and a steal.
Might not wanna let Mason Plumlee dunk whenever he so desires.
Celtics-Nets preseason! History in action! Eleven-minute quarters!
Texted a player re: 44 minute games. "Us players, we'll be good. But are they going to cut those tix by 1/12th for fans? I don't think so."
Stevens said he has a pretty good idea of who would start if everyone's healthy. My guess: Rondo, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Olynyk.
Stevens waxed poetically about Smart's ability to avoid screens. Called him the "ultimate physical talent" as a defender, too.
B. Stevens on Marcus Smart: "He has ultimate physical talent. He's got physical strength. He's got great agility...He's really unscreenable"
"I want to get crisper. I want to get better at what we do" - Brad Stevens on the last pre-season games. But it works for real life, too.
As expected, Gerald Wallace is available for today's game, while James Young continues to be inactive due to a strained left hamstring.
James Young out. Gerald Wallace should be available. Vitor still in Spain.
You know the weather's changing when Ed Hochuli takes the field in long sleeves. Damn you, Buffalo.
Kevin Garnett will not play today.
And they were about to let Rudy play on the kickoff team, too.
David Robinson's son finds the end zone against FSU. Wonder what Will Perdue's kid is up to tonight?
Cody Kessler's 7th TD pass of the game just broke the USC record previously set by Matt Barkley
Of course, with the 44 minute game will be a .08% reduction in all ticket prices....to be fair.
My camera guy, John 'the Wild' Picard, just asked me if I'm auditioning for Grease.
Gerald Wallace is available to play tomorrow. Stevens thinks Young is "most likely not playing."
James Young (hamstring) will try to play tomorrow in Brooklyn, but hopes to at least play in the last preseason game Wednesday.
James Young (hamstring) did some conditioning work and shooting at practice today. Hopes to play tomorrow but still needs clearance.
Marcus Thornton on tomorrow's 44-minute game: "Four (fewer) minutes could make us or break us. I'm interested to see how it goes."
Will Bynum is in Boston and completed his physical today. He will not be with the team today or tomorrow.
Will Bynum in Boston for physical. Stevens sounds unsure about his future.
James Young is "most likely" not to play tomorrow against Brooklyn, according to Brad Stevens. Gerald Wallace is expected to be available.
James Young running (or at least jogging) during shooting drills at the end of practice. Probably a good sign. Cs hope he can play Wed.
Bynum won't play in last two preseason games, but sources say Celts will wait to check for other moves before waiving him.
Mannnnn I remember slam ball. That use to be my show.
amazed and amused by the new trend toward 'hillbilly' beards. It messes with my psyche of...... what modernity is.
Hilary was so bad on the fresh prince mannnnnnn
Zena of Harvard is going to WORK RIGHT NOW!!!
