Marcus Smart will start for the Celtics tonight. And so it begins...
You get 'em Clausen!
Stevens: "I'm not going to choose a new captain yet. This is an opportunity for our young guys to take ownership (of leadership)."
Stevens says James Young is doing some non-contact work today during shootaround.
Stevens: "It's hard to add people in the middle of the season. Everything is not going to be as fluid as it will be 3 months from now."
Stevens says he hasn't decided his lineup/rotation yet. "Whatever we decide to go with, nothing is set in stone until we figure this out."
Nelson is excited about his debut: "It's an opportunity to play for the Celtics w/ all the tradition and the legacy." http://t.co/Y4M0QaLNMl
Rondo had a really Rondo game. I still don't know if he fits in Dallas. It's going to be fascinating to see it unfold.
Rondo just took his fourth charge.
I keep waiting for the Hawks to turn into the Hawks, and maybe they won't this time?
Rajon Rondo scores his first Dallas points in the 3rd. Since 2008, he's played in 450 games..only six times had he been held scoreless.
Serious question. Is there a compelling reason why NBA-TV can't broadcast the Rondo debut? Seems like that's why the channel should exist.
We'll be hoooome for Christmas!
Oh my god. Kentucky
Here we come, FL. ✈️☁️☀️
