Ime Udoka said the team played it safe with Romeo Langford tonight, after Langford felt some calf tightness during warmups. – 9:46 PM
Marc D’Amico @celtics
“I would say overall, that’s who we are,” Coach Udoka says of our high level of competitiveness tonight. – 9:45 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said Jayson Tatum made a play off a broken set and then he laughed and told Tatum: “Let me stop telling you what to do. I’ve never averaged 27 points per game, so I should just let you do what you do out there.” – 9:45 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Ime Udoka said the Celtics wanted to be safe with Romeo Langford after his calf felt tight during warmups. – 9:45 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Romeo Langford’s calf felt tight during warmups, so Udoka says they wanted to play it safe and sit him tonight. – 9:45 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Ime Udoka said Romeo Langford’s calf just felt tight during warmups. Team wanted to be safe with him, keeping him out. – 9:45 PM

A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
“Overall, that’s who we are. We got back to who we are, and that’s compete. That’s what we’re looking for going forward.” – #Celtics Ime Udoka on the team being more competitive than they were in the home-opener vs Toronto. – 9:43 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said the Celtics are aware that they need to create more free throws. The coaches are encouraging players to attack the rim and to not settle against certain matchups. – 9:43 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said the Celtics gave him a water shower and the game ball after his first win. Udoka said he told the team “I appreciate it, but you took too long to get it!” – 9:41 PM

Ime Udoka said the Celtics gave him a water shower after the game for his first win. – 9:40 PM
Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Coach Silas attributed the majority of turnovers to lack of experience against a switching defense like the one Boston used.
He said the team right now is more reactive, than proactive, but that they’ll watch film, work through things on the court tomorrow, and learn. – 9:40 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said bringing Al Horford back in the fold “has been good for us”.
Udoka said Horford covers a lot of things for the Celtics, especially with different defensive coverages. – 9:39 PM

“He covers a lot of holes … he’s a glue-guy for us.” – Ime Udoka on Al Horford’s impact. – 9:39 PM

Bit of a weird back-to-back for Boston, as they go from Houston to Charlotte, but at least the Celtics are going in off a win. – 9:35 PM

Silas said the Celtics switching hurt the Rockets tonight. It’s the first time they had seen that this season – 9:35 PM

Boston took control in the second half and withstood every #Rockets  run. They win it, 107-97. Turnovers were an issue: 20 TOs for 28 Celtics points.
But, Jalen Green. 30 points. 11-18 from the floor. A Rockets rookie record 8 made-threes, with 4 rebs, 3 assists, and 2 blocks. – 9:31 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Jalen Green tonight:
✅ 30 PTS
✅ 11-18 FG

Green is the first @Houston Rockets rookie to record a 30-point game since Yao Ming on Nov. 21, 2002. He also set a new franchise rookie record for most 3PM in a game. – 9:31 PM

#Rockets fall to the #Celtics, 107-97 to fall to 1-2. Rookie Jalen Green was pretty, pretty, pretty good setting a new Rockets rookie record for 3ptFGM with 8. He was 8-10 from deep & scored 30 pts, incl. a highlight reel slam in the 4thQ. @SportsMT9:26 PM

Rockets lose to the Celtics 107-97. They were feisty but disjointed after a quality 1st quarter – 9:25 PM

Houston is going to be fun to watch and monitor all season. That last play, taking 20 seconds to get a shot when you are down 11 with a minute to play, that’ll get cleaned up. – 9:24 PM

Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
OH MY GOD JALEN GREEN – 9:17 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
The Rockets spacing has been a little messy tonight. Seems like too many guys in actions where passing lanes should be cleaner. I assume that’s just a really young team figuring it out. – 9:17 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Jalen Green has had a nice game, but that’s not an ideal shot chart. The three-point shooting isn’t sustainable, and you’d like to see a little more efficiency inside the arc pic.twitter.com/2rbJmB4mgk9:16 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Horford was the only bright spot for Boston against Toronto. He’s had just as much of an impact tonight. – 9:15 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Jalen Green in 32 minutes:
28 points
4 rebounds
3 assists
1 steal
1 block
10-17 from the field
8-10 from 3-PT range – 9:14 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Celtics just a little too sloppy allowing Houston to keep it just a little too close. This could cost them tomorrow against Charlotte. Tatum’s night should be over but instead they still need him on the floor – 9:13 PM
Nate Jones @JonesOnTheNBA
Jalen Green 3 ball becomes consistent and it’s curtains because he can get to the rim with ease already. Sheesh – 9:13 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Good timeout by Ime Udoka there. Celtics had run a couple of sloppy sets. Get a good ATO for a bucket here and it might seal this one. – 9:13 PM

Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
Make that 28 for Jalen Green. On an efficient 10-for-17 from the field, 8-for-10 from deep. Wow. – 9:12 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
With his 8th 3ptFGM, #Rockets @Jalen Green just set the franchise rookie record for 3ptFGM in a game. (Previous: Cuttino Mobley & Michael Dickerson with 7 – in the same game on Mar. 25, 1999 vs Raptors). Green has 28 pts (8-10 on 3’s), Rockets trail 104-90. @SportsTalk7909:12 PM

8 triples for Jalen Green. He’s played well tonight. – 9:11 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Jalen Green with his eighth 3-pointer, ties Anthony Edwards for the most ever by a teenager. He is one shy of the rookie record. – 9:11 PM
Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
A new #Rockets rookie record. 8 made threes for @Jalen Green! – 9:11 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Julius Randle is doing some of what he did in the opener against the Celtics here against the Magic, in terms of forcing difficult shots. With the options the Knicks have added around him, he shouldn’t be doing that. – 9:10 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
Basketball just looks so easy for Jayson Tatum. Sheesh. – 9:10 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
That last three by Tatum were the first fourth-quarter points he’s scored this season. – 9:09 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
A crushing Horford screen opens up a 3 for Tatum and #Celtics are up 17 with 5:13 left. #Rockets9:09 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Grant Williams has equaled his career-high with 18 points. – 9:09 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Sengun popped Marcus Smart reaching for a rebound. Officials reviewed but a common foul. Also, his fifth. – 9:08 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Horford and Tatum back in after the timeout. Nice ATO set got Grant to the free throw line. – 9:05 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Grant Williams evolving into a lethal three-point shooter in his third year was … unexpected. Williams is 5-6 from three tonight. 9-12 on the season. – 9:05 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Nice ATO for Grant, and he’s fouled at the rim. #Celtics #Rockets9:05 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Grant Williams’ previous career high in threes made was three.
He’s 5-of-6 from behind the arc tonight. 9-of-12 on the season so far on three-pointers. – 9:04 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Grant Williams has 17 points in 24 minutes. He is 5-of-6 from 3. – 9:03 PM

Another Grant 3. His fifth. #Celtics #Rockets9:02 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Udoka can’t go too long without Tatum or Horford here. Needs one of them back in to get things back under control. – 9:01 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
19-year old Jalen Green just made his 7th three.
That matches the most ever against the Celtics by a rookie. Saddiq Bey did it at TD Garden on February 12th. – 9:01 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Right now, Robert Williams is catching the ball and looking to pass immediately. Even when he’s in the paint. He needs to go up with some of these shots inside vs kicking it back out. – 9:00 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
There’s a reason some projection models had Alperen Sengun as the best player in the draft. – 8:59 PM

Very loud “Let’s go Rockets” chant at Toyota Center during the dead ball. – 8:59 PM

Jalen Green ties a #Rockets rookie record with 7 made threes. – 8:57 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Sengun has done a lot of good things on both ends. The veterans with him off the Rockets bench not so much. Gordon, House, Augustin and Nwaba a combined 1 of 10 for 5 points. House still looking for first 2021-22 bucket. – 8:56 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Eric Gordon just airballed a layup. And it wasn’t a floater he left short. It was a regular layup that missed the glass and the rim. Don’t see that very often. – 8:55 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe

Al Horford is a +22 right now for a reason. Aside from some misses from deep, Horford has played just about perfectly – 8:46 PM

#Rockets (1-1) trail Celtics (0-2) at the half, 53-51. Rookie @Jalen Green made his 1st 5 3’s , he’s now 6-7 on 3’s , 18 pts (after scoring 9 pts in each of his 1st 2 games). Jayson Tatum has 20 pts to lead all scorers. @SportsTalk7908:09 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Quentin Grimes got the Ntilikina role for 2 seconds of defense at the end of the first half against the Celtics. Tonight, Miles McBride gets it for 4.5 seconds to close the second quarter. – 8:08 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
We’ve all been waiting for Jalen Green’s three-point shot to start falling and that’s exactly what’s happening tonight: He’s 6-7 from deep for 18 points at half. This might be the rookie’s breakout game. – 8:05 PM

Celtics 53, Rockets 51 at half. Jalen Green matches the 18 points he had in the first two games in the first half. He is 6 of 7 on 3s, three 3-pointers from matching the rookie record. Tatum with 20. Rockets 12 turnovers; Celtics 4. – 8:03 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Rockets are down 53-51 at the half. Jalen Green shot the hell out of it, but missed all 3 of his shots from inside the arc. Jayson Tatum is on one – 8:03 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
#Celtics lead #Rockets 53-51 at half. Tatum 20, GWilliams 11, Schroder 7; Green 18 (all on threes), Wood 12, Porter Jr. 9. – 8:02 PM

Jalen Green looks surprised he’s not getting star calls yet lol – 8:01 PM
Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
Jalen Green is gonna be special. – 8:01 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
There’s something poetic about Jayson Tatum scoring on Daniel Theis thanks to a seal off by Al Horford. – 8:00 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Damn Jalen Green. 6 three-pointers in the first half. – 8:00 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
20 for Tatum and then a sixth 3-pointer from Jalen Green. #Celtics #Rockets8:00 PM
David Morrow @_DavidMorrow
Jalen Green, Christian Wood and Jalen Green are so exciting and dynamic. Really fun start to a team. – 7:59 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Tatum is used to following Daniel Theis all the way to the rim for a layup – 7:59 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Horford just did the Theis seal to Theis! – 7:58 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I did not expect to see Al Horford protect the rim like this. Was the lone bright spot of the Toronto loss and he’s been good again tonight. – 7:57 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
I have to remind myself that there are a subset of people that didn’t watch James Harden go through early season slumps in Houston when I’m reading Twitter today. – 7:57 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
Rockets have turned the ball over 11 times already in the half, with Boston scoring 16 points as a result. Even without Jaylen Brown, that’s a recipe for disaster. – 7:56 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
A little glimpse into Tatum actually manipulating a defense to make the pass he wanted. That’s not something he’s done very often. If he can add that to his game, then he becomes a different player – 7:55 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Celtics have come back from down nine to go up 45-43 with three minutes left in the half. Rockets turnovers (11) are killing them. Also, might want to stop looking for calls they are not getting and keep playing. – 7:55 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
That was a really nice pass by Tatum to Horford. His vision as a passer has really improved. – 7:54 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
7-0 Celtics run. C’s have looked sharp on both ends this quarter. – 7:54 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Jayson with a nice no-look pass to Horford for a layup. #Celtics are trying to work themselves out of their offensive issue, lead 47-45. #Rockets7:54 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Another Grant 3. His third. #Celtics #Rockets7:52 PM

Daniel Theis clobbered Jayson Tatum contesting a shot. A minute before, Tatum returned to the floor with a tug on Theis’ shirt. – 7:50 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Jalen Green isn’t even seeing defenders on these triples. It’s just rise , fire and bottom of the net for him right now. – 7:49 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
#Celtics are going to have to do something about Jalen Green at the 3-point line. He’s got five in 14 minutes. #Rockets7:49 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Good God. Jalen Green makes his 5th straight three-pointer of the night.
There’s 5 minutes left in the first half. – 7:49 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
What an awesome pass from Robert Williams: pic.twitter.com/KIiJi2deVG7:48 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
As he walks to re-enter the game, Jayson Tatum tugs at Daniel Theis’ jersey as he’s standing behind the 3-point line near the #Celtics bench. Theis tried not to react. – 7:48 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
We’re at almost 18 minutes of game time and the Celtics have yet to take a free throw. – 7:47 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
whoa what a pass from Robert Williams to Schröder for the layup! – 7:47 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Nifty pass by Robert Williams. #Celtics #Rockets7:47 PM

Jalen Green in 10 minutes:
12 points

Jalen Green’s career-high fourth 3 gives his a career-high 12 points. – 7:43 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
KPJ’s first step is unbelievably quick. Fully understand why the Cavs moved him, but the Rockets getting him for nothing now looks like such a massive steal. – 7:43 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Grant Williams is 6-of-8 from 3 to start the season. – 7:40 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Grant Williams has opened the season shooting 75 percent from 3-point range (6-of-8). – 7:40 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Another 3 for Grant, and his hitting threes looks like more than a trend. #Celtics are down 2. – 7:40 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Eric Gordon signaling for a travel while contesting a 3-pointer on a close out is peak Eric Gordon – 7:38 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Unlike the Raptors game, where Boston looked awful other than a couple of points in the first half, this one seems more like one team is making shots and one isn’t. That will probably even out as the game goes along. – 7:37 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Hey… a Celtic cut to the basket! Celtics offense has looked horrible and their defense isn’t much better They allow 10-16 shooting my Houston while shooting 10-22. Rockets are 6-8 on FTs and Boston hasn’t gone to the line yet – 7:36 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Rockets lead 30-22 after one
Tatum – 12 points
Celtics – 2-9 three-pointers
Celtics – 3 turnovers
Wood – 10 points
Green – 9 points
Rockets – 10-16 shooting
Rockets – 6 turnovers – 7:35 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets 30, Celtics 22 after 1. Green beats the buzzer, off balance from 28 feet for his third trey. Wood with 10. Jayson Tatum with 12. Rest of Celtics 4 of 14. – 7:35 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Rockets lead 30-22 after a quarter. Half court defense was excellent, minus a slip up from Augustin on the Celtics last possession of the quarter. Jalen Green and Christian Wood were excellent. Celtics are Jayson Tatum and a bunch of other guys – 7:35 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Jalen Green hits his third 3-pointer of the Q in the final second and #Rockets lead #Celtics 30-22. HOU shoots 62.5% and 4-for-7 from 3. Tatum has 12 for BOS. – 7:35 PM
Chris Herring @Herring_NBA
That shot from Jalen Green was WILD – 7:35 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
Well then, Jalen Green. – 7:34 PM

JALEN GREEN PRAYER TO END THE FIRST!! – 7:34 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Jalen Green makes a falling three-pointer to end the first quarter. – 7:34 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Nice play by Tatum to get right in the post for a bucket when Boston needed one. He needs to do that more often. – 7:33 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Boston is really struggling with Christian Wood’s activity as a screen-and-roller. He’s drawn several fouls already by rolling hard off the screen. – 7:31 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
It appears Silas hasn’t gone full D’Antoni with the Green-Porter staggering in-game yet. Likes to have Augustin lead for a bit before bringing one back in. – 7:31 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Rotation tweaks from Udoka:
Horford out, Grant in. Then Rob out, Horford back in.
Tatum out early and now back with Horford and three reserves. – 7:29 PM

Alperen Sengun finds a cutting Christian Wood for the dunk.
pic.twitter.com/a5uvJjBzyz7:29 PM

Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
This Celtics offense has really struggled to get good looks through its first few games of the season. – 7:28 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIkoNBA
Wood has gotten a bit quicker with his slips to the basket, helps to force defenses to make gambles. Rockets up 19-15 w/ 2:50 to go — Boston shooting 41 percent from the field, 14 from deep. – 7:28 PM
Mark Murphy @Murf56
Slooow start – Celtics 1-7 from three, 7-17 overall. – 7:28 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Celtics not named Jayson Tatum shooting just 3-of-12 from the field to start game. Offense has been rough with him on bench. – 7:27 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Immediately after Alperen Sengun checked in, Christian Wood cut to take a pass from Sengun to a slam. He spoke about seeing more opportunities to take advantage of Sengun’s passing. houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-n… via @houstonchron – 7:27 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Not a lot of offense in this group for the Celtics. Good to see some early run for Nesmith with Brown and Langford out. – 7:26 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
The look off and then the pass to Christian Wood from Alperen Sengun was next level stuff – 7:24 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Alperen Sengun is good and never should have fallen as far as he did in the draft. And OKC should not have traded out of that pick. – 7:24 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Schroder picks up his second foul in seven minutes and heads to the bench, replaced by Nesmith. #Celtics #Rockets7:23 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
As Alperen Sengun checks in, it reminds that the game includes two Turks, two Spaniards, two Germans and two Aggies. – 7:23 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Alperen Sengun and Eric Gordon sub in for Jalen Green and Daniel Theis. – 7:22 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Dennis Schroder is 2-of-12 from 3 in a Celtics uniform, including the preseason. He’s 1-for-7 in regular season games. – 7:21 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
It’s probably because a lot of the game has been played in transition so far, but not very many sets for the Celtics so far. That’s different from the first couple of games. – 7:20 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
Kevin Porter Jr is hobbling after it looked like he stepped on someone’s foot. Rockets trail 10-9 at the first timeout. Defense has been really good, but Jayson Tatum has been better – 7:18 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Jayson Tatum is in a groove for the first time this season. Eight points in first five minutes. – 7:17 PM
Mark Murphy @Murf56
Tatum feasting from mid-range right now – 4-4, all twos – 7:17 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I really like Jalen Green. Once he cleans up his ballhandling, he’s really gone be something. Like most young guard/wings, that will come in time. – 7:17 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Jayson Tatum might be looking to drop a 50 piece in this one – 7:16 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
J TATUM LOCKED IN – 7:16 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Both Boston and Houston are switching everything. It’s resulting in some major mismatches on both ends. – 7:16 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Jayson in his bag already with 8 pts in 4 1/2 minutes. #Celtics #Rockets7:16 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Pretty clear the Rockets placed an emphasis on getting Jalen going early in the game. Has been the primary ball handler more than usual. – 7:15 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’m willing to bet that after years of playing together, Jayson Tatum knows Daniel Theis isn’t going to do well against him off the dribble. – 7:15 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
The Daniel Theis revenge game has begun – 7:14 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Daniel Theis revenge game? – 7:14 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Jalen Green has been excellent early on operating the pick and roll.
Has gotten Theis two easy baskets and got himself a three-pointer. – 7:14 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Despite Jaylen Brown and Romeo Langford being inactive with injuries, both Celtics Two-Way players (Sam Hauser and Brodric Thomas) are also inactive. – 7:13 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Jayson Tatum clearly put on some muscle over the summer. – 7:12 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Daniel Theis, still good. – 7:12 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
This would have been a good spot for Romeo Langford to play increased minutes with Jaylen Brown out. Now, that opportunity could fall to Aaron Nesmith. I assume Payton Pritchard might see some increased minutes as well. – 7:09 PM

The strangest part of Friday finishing 4th on this list of over 1,500 games, is that the Celtics trailed by 2 midway through the 3rd. It was a 55-25 close for the Raptors.

Ime Udoka says Jaylen Brown felt a little knee soreness in the Toronto game and tried to rest it, but it didn’t feel great yesterday. This is the same knee issue that kept him out a few games last year. Udoka thinks quick ramp up after quarantine and the 2OT game exacerbated it. – 5:35 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Ime Udoka says the Celtics are being cautious with Jaylen Brown in holding him out today against Houston. He said the ramp up to opening night, plus the double OT game, brought this knee soreness on. Dennis Schroder will start in his place. – 5:35 PM
