What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Still crazy early…but 15% in to the season…
* Washington all alone atop the East (8-3)
* Cleveland (hosting the C’s tonight) is 4th (8-5)
* Neither Milwaukee (NBA champs) or Atlanta (ECF) are in the East top 10
(and the Lakers about to drop to 7-6 despite 10 of 13 at home) – 12:36 AM

New on BSJ: Dennis Schröder gave the Celtics the aggressive push they needed on an otherwise flat night bostonsportsjournal.com/2021/11/13/kar…12:20 AM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
The good news is the Hawks have a five-game homestand coming up, beginning with Milwaukee on Sunday. After that, it’s Orlando, Boston, Charlotte and Oklahoma City.
Hawks are 1-8 on the road. Only win was a 3-point win over a dreadful Pelicans team. – 12:09 AM
Jordan Schultz @Schultz_Report
The three players with the most made triples this season: Steph Curry, Buddy Hield… and Grayson Allen. That man is hoopin. – 11:52 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Ime Udoka felt Celtics came out flat cause Giannis was out: “First message (before the game) was don’t let it be an inclination to let down naturally when a guy was missing. The other guys are going to play hard and come in with a nothing to lose attitude and they did.” – 10:23 PM

The Celtics defensive rebounding tonight has been bad. Especially so, with the Bucks playing one player taller than 6’6”. – 9:43 PM

Holiday hits hit first 3. He’s now 1-for-11. #Celtics #Bucks9:41 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Celtics still need to work out their backside rotations when they double an isolation in the middle of the floor. Smart left Allen one pass away and there was no rotation up onto Allen, so Smart had to dig in on Holiday then try to recover back out to the shooter & it won’t work. – 9:41 PM

Bobby Portis trying to get the Bucks back in this one with a couple buckets. Celtics up, 92-87, with 8:22 left.
With the Bucks’ injuries and Portis back in playing shape, he’s played 30 or more minutes in two of the last three games. Already up to 30 minutes tonight. – 9:31 PM

It’s mostly because of personnel but Budenholzer has really been mixing it up defensively this year. We’ve seen drop, switching, zone and of course Thanasis being cut loose to fly all over the place in the first half alone against Boston. Certainly makes things interesting. – 8:51 PM

Not a good first half for the Celtics. Ten turnovers and some sloppy defense, though the Bucks’ 80 percent shooting from the midrange (12 for 15) probably isn’t too sustainable. – 8:40 PM

well that was unpleasant to watch, which feels weird to say about a half where Boston scored 51 points and is only down 4. But the 50% Bucks shooting without Giannis, Middleton, or Lopez is very not good – 8:39 PM

Thanasis Antetokounmpo disrupted the #Celtics offense and helped force a turnover = a Jordan Nwora three. #Bucks lead 49-47 with 3:23 to go in the first half. – 8:29 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
This is such a weird game because the defense isn’t great but it’s also not a shootout or anything.
the Celtics just seem a little off sometimes. Passes getting tipped or thrown out of bounds, confusion on defense. They need to just survive this half and regroup at half – 8:28 PM

Keon Johnson officially has a left ankle sprain. He is out for tomorrow vs Timberwolves, though he may have been out anyway due to G League.
That’s where Brandon Boston Jr. and Serge Ibaka will remain.
Marcus Morris Sr., Jason Preston, Kawhi Leonard out as usual. – 8:24 PM

Sort of fun to watch Grayson Allen show off the whole offensive skillset tonight. Hesitations, scoop shots, running hook shots, snake dribbles, all of it.
(Related: In an ideal world, these things will rarely show up in Bucks games that matter.) – 8:17 PM
Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Al Horford has five points, five rebounds and five assists through 10 minutes. – 8:16 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Hubie Brown called this Bucks team “the Milwaukee kids” earlier in the game and it’s fitting because he’s like a proud parent every time they take a shot that isn’t a three right now. Great to have him back on the call. – 8:16 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Not a banner night for Celtics defense so far, allowing 30 first quarter points to a Bucks team without Giannis and Middleton that shot just 1-of-11 from 3. – 8:12 PM
Boston Celtics @celtics
We are making defense our top priority tonight against the Bucks with Rob Williams serving as our anchor.

Celtics defense looks pretty bad right now. There’s been some confusion and that foul by Richardson ties the game at 30 heading into the 2nd quarter. Not the type of defensive effort you want against the shorthanded Bucks – 8:09 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
No Giannis Antetokounmpo tonight for the #Bucks, but they finish the first quarter tied with the #Celtics 30-30. – 8:09 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Thanasis Antetokounmpo with a quick six points by essentially just hovering around the rim and the Celtics losing him. – 8:06 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
What a ridiculous call that was.
Tatum got fouled and he never kicked it. – 8:04 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Bobby Portis has 10 points on 5 of 6 shooting in the opening 8.5 minutes of the first quarter. The #Bucks trail 21-17 — they’re shooting just 11.1% from behind the three-point line. – 8:02 PM
A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
With Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) a late scratch for the Bucks, the #Celtics instead have their hands full with Bobby Portis who has 10 pts on 5/6 shooting in just eight minutes. The rest of Milwaukee’s players are just 2/11 shooting. – 8:01 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
This is a game where Udoka can mostly run one-big lineups. That could/should open up minutes for Romeo Langford, Aaron Nesmith and Payton Pritchard. – 8:00 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
10 points for Schroder. He’s done a nice job getting inside on the small Bucks on a few drives. – 7:59 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Great defense by Ojeleye on Tatum. Gotta believe he saw that side-step jumper a few hundred times over the years. – 7:59 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Didn’t expect to be Googling “What is Bobby Portis’s career high?” this early, but just in case you were wondering it’s 38 points. – 7:58 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Ime Udoka took a timeout immediately after watching Bobby Portis dribble down the middle of the floor and no Celtic stepped up to stop him in transition.
Bucks up, 13-11, with 6:31 left in the first quarter. – 7:54 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
If Boston is going to post Horford (and they should be against Connaughton, Allen and Ojeleye), they have to clear out and give him room. The poor spacing has allowed Milwaukee to double-team twice for turnovers already. – 7:54 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Celtics with an early 10-4 rebounding edge, but the game is tied at 11. – 7:52 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
The Bucks have struggled on the defensive glass with Giannis Antetokounmpo in these shorthanded lineups.
If the first few minutes are any indication, those struggles will be even more significant tonight. – 7:50 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Semi Ojeleye is the #Bucks sixth man, and he gets a warm reception from the #Celtics crowd. – 7:50 PM

Nice ovation for Semi Ojeleye in his return to the Garden. – 7:50 PM

Stg Al Horford still pivots and jabs like Foreman in ’94 😆 – 7:50 PM

D. Schroder
Bucks starters:
B. Portis
P. Connaughton
G. Allen
G. Hill
J. Holiday – 7:23 PM
Justin Garcia @tmjgarcia
The volume of both is obviously likely to come down once this team is fully healthy but Grayson Allen is on pace for 300 made threes and 720 attempts
The Bucks records for both (229 and 528) were set by Ray Allen in 2001-02 – 7:22 PM

If you’re wondering, the last time the Bucks came to Boston as defending world champions; February 13, 1972.
Kareem had 51-17 and 7 assists, playing all 48 minutes in a 117-109 road win. JoJo White had 31, Havlicek 2 rebounds from a triple double. – 7:19 PM

Since he entered the NBA in 2013, this is just the second time in 39 games that Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) has missed a game against the Celtics.
The other was a DNP-CD on the last day of the 2016-17 season. – 6:23 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
No Giannis Antetokounmpo for the Bucks tonight is a major break for the Celtics. Milwaukee is down three starters with Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez also out. – 6:20 PM
