Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
There are a lot of hypotheticals being thrown around tonight about an expanded CFP and how Utah would fit in.
I get it, but boy, is that a waste of time right now. – 2:51 AM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
How 3-point heavy as the Jazz offense been in recent years?
The NBA record for most team 3-pointers in a game is 29 (Milwaukee, 12/29/20). The Utah Jazz hit 27 vs. Boston.
It was not a team record. – 2:42 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Got home from Jazz game, now packing for 6 AM flight to Portland for tomorrow’s RSL match. THE STOKE IS HIGH – 2:14 AM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Friday was the first time in 30 years the Celtics attempted 22+ free throws in regulation without a miss.
(Last: February 7, 1991 at New York)
It had happened 10 times previously in Celtics history, 5 coming in a one year span (1990-91). Larry Bird was 28-28 in those 5. – 1:46 AM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
“Tonight was different.”

Tonight was a career moment for the entire Utah coaching staff.
One thing that will stick with me is OL coach Jim Harding, in tears, removing himself from the chaos on the field to take it all in. – 1:11 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Boston shot 51.6% from the field, scored 50 PITP (on a Gobert team no less) outscored Utah 31-10 in points off turnovers and had only six turnovers.
And because the Jazz shot an unreal 27-of-51 from three, Utah got the win.
That’s one of the wilder losses I can remember. – 12:50 AM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
7-7 from three. In year 15.
#TakeNote | @Mike Conley pic.twitter.com/JOW8koezpb12:46 AM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Mike Conley noted that he actually shot the ball poorly before tonight’s game and had no idea what was coming until he started making them in the game. Said he had one he knew was good as soon as it left his hand, and he had to fight the urge to just turn and run downcourt. – 12:38 AM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
The Celtics had their best shooting night of the season against Jazz (51.6 percent) and Utah still shot better from 3-point range (52 percent) than Boston did from the field. – 12:29 AM

Clippers over Lakers, 119-115…

Lakers lose 119-115 to the Clippers in a game LAL just couldn’t get over the hump. AD 27p 10r; LeBron 23p 11r 6a; Monk 20p; Melo 13p; Russ 10p 9a. Lakers don’t play again until Tuesday, hosting Boston – 12:26 AM

Final: Clippers 119, Lakers 115
The Lakers drop to 12-12 and 7-5 w/ LeBron James. Anthony Davis led LA with 27 points & 10 rebounds. LeBron had 23 points & 11 rebounds. The Lakers’ pick-and-roll D and Clippers’ 3s were the difference in crunch time.

Over the final six minutes of the game Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley shot a combined 7-7 from the floor, 5-5 from the three-point line, and scored a combined 24 points.
They were incredibly good to close out the Celtics. – 12:22 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Mike Conley, on his 7-7 3-point performance: “Tonight was different.” Noted that he wasn’t initially a great 3 shooter, but as he saw the league trending that way, he quickly realized he needed to “adapt or die.” – 12:12 AM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
The most threes Mike Conley has hit in a game without a miss is 3/3 during the regular season, 5/5 in the 2012 playoffs. Tonight he went 7/7 😮

Al Horford said the Celtics are starting to find a lot of lineup versatility lately.
Horford added he was really proud of the Celtics getting back in the game after Utah’s hot-shooting. Horford said “We kept fighting.” – 12:07 AM

Al Horford on Celtics play amid Utah’s shooting: “We kept fighting.” – 12:06 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Al Horford said that was probably the Celtics best offensive game of the season. He said pregame Ime Udoka was stressing the need to play fast. Horford felt the team was able to do that tonight. – 12:06 AM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Al Horford obviously disappointed by the loss, but thought that was probably the Celtics’ best offensive game of the year. He said Ime Udoka stressed playing with pace before the game. Horford thought Boston did a good job of that tonight. – 12:04 AM
Boston Celtics @celtics
“We were there, we contested them,” Al Horford says when asked about Utah’s lights-out shooting performance. “We’ve got to shake their hand and give them credit.” – 12:04 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
As Rudy Gobert exited the interview room and Donovan Mitchell entered, Don exclaimed, “The man really did a whole interview shirtless!” Indeed. Don, on the other hand, was soon complaining about his own big, fuzzy sweater being “itchy as hell.” 😂 – 12:04 AM

Not for nothing, and I’m almost completely serious, the roses given to the Utah players on the field looked very, VERY fresh and well-trimmed.

Al Horford said he felt like Utah made some really tough, contested threes. – 12:03 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Jazz have been lower on assists this year, than previous seasons. I remember a couple of weeks ago, Quin Snyder talked about trusting in each other.
26 assists on 45 hoops tonight. Of course, it helps to hit 27 threes, but Utah had the ball popping around. – 12:01 AM

Utah rushed for 191 yards on 40 carries, which is 4.8 YPC.
Not bad after things started slowly up front. It took the offensive line a few drives to settle in. – 12:00 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Donovan Mitchell, on the closing minutes: “It was just fluid. We knew exactly where we needed to be. It was boom-boom-boom. I gotta give coach credit. We’ve been through every damn situation — we’ve seen everything 8 times in practice.” – 11:59 PM

Joel Embiid: “There wasn’t anybody that was not likable in the past but it makes it easier when you have guys like that that care about winning.

Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Quin Snyder called early turnovers “sloppy and careless,” and said his team didn’t defend at the level needed. Ultimately, though, the Jazz put themselves in a position to win.
27 threes has a way of making up for a lot of bad things. – 11:48 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Quin said the Jazz really struggled early against Boston’s pressure: “I don’t know what it feels like being picked up full court by Dennis Schröder and Marcus Smart, but it doesn’t look fun.” He liked the adjustment the team made by getting aggressive, early shots. – 11:44 PM

Quin said there was a stretch in the 1H where the Jazz were “sloppy and careless” with unforced turnovers. Also didn’t like the defense in the 3Q. “But we put ourselves in a situation to win.” – 11:41 PM
Boston Celtics @celtics
Coach Udoka: “To only lose by seven with a team shooting that hot, it shows our effort and the way we played hard tonight.” – 11:39 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said the Celtics weren’t aggressively switching up at the level of the ball enough. He felt that allowed the Jazz to get in a great rhythm. – 11:37 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
In the first quarter, Ime Udoka said the Celtics weren’t switching up aggressively enough. He thinks that helped the Jazz get a rhythm. – 11:36 PM

A lot of smiles, a lot of tears on the field as the postgame scene unfolds.
Been a tough year at Utah, this is quite a payoff. – 11:35 PM

The good news for Celtics: They had their best offensive night of the season.
The bad news for Celtics: It didn’t matter during a historic shooting night for Jazz. Instant takeaways from a thriller in Utah: masslive.com/celtics/2021/1…11:34 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Can’t be mad at that game. That was an awesome game and one team had a historic shooting night. A lot of those were tough. Having Jaylen Brown might have made a little difference in this one – 11:33 PM

Jazz beat the Celtics 137-130. What a crazy game: terrific shooting from Utah, but they couldn’t stop the Celtics much, either.
Mitchell had 34 on 12-22 FG, 6 assists. Conley had 29 points on 9-13 FG. Gobert had 18 on 5-5 FG, 8-10 FT.

Longtime Madden players will get this:
You can get to like 13-0 or 14-0 in a season and then the computer won’t let you win. Everything goes bananas for the other team.
Boston is far from perfect, but that’s what tonight felt like with this Jazz shooting. – 11:29 PM
Danny Leroux @DannyLeroux
I flipped on Jazz/Celtics with about five minutes to go and I believe Utah scored on all but one trip down the floor the rest of the game. Celts stayed in it a while but that is tough to overcome. – 11:28 PM

I didn’t realize the Celtics were 8 point dogs tonight. I thought 3 or 4…Vegas showing how it feels about this team – 11:28 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Unreal stupidity by Schroder. Goes for the quick two with Boston down by six and needing a three. And he missed it. – 11:27 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Another killer 3 by Donovan, Schroder blows the wide-open layup on the other end, and the Jazz should finally have this one sewn up. – 11:27 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
It’s actually kind of incredible the Celtics had a chance to win this game with Utah shooting like this. – 11:27 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Mitchell 3, missed Schroder layup will seal it. Jazz shooting lights out from three won them this game: 27-51 threes is a ridiculous number. – 11:27 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Some absolutely insane shotmaking from Donovan Mitchell down the stretch tonight – not to mention 7-for-7 from 3-point range for Mike Conley – to allow Utah to escape from this game with a win. If Boston keeps playing like this on this road trip, however, it’ll be just fine. – 11:27 PM

Conley has not missed from 3. Jazz are shooting 51% from deep. It’s kind of a miracle that they’re even with in 5 – 11:24 PM

An absolutely huge 3 by Conley to staunch the bleeding. Jazz lead was down to 2, but is now at 130-125 with 57 seconds to go. – 11:23 PM

In an attempt to get Horford an extra couple minutes of rest, Udoka is sticking with Rob against Gobert here. – 11:13 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Boston just completely tore apart the Jazz there with Hassan Whiteside in at center. Celtics up four halfway through the fourth, with a chance to steal what would be a huge road win to begin this West Coast trip without Jaylen Brown. – 11:11 PM

The Jazz missed consecutive three-pointers. Feels like that hasn’t happened very often tonight. – 11:09 PM

Ime Udoka picked up a technical foul after that call against Al Horford. Horford knew it was a good call, but maybe Udoka was barking about Gobert and Whiteside doing the same thing on the other end? – 10:39 PM

This will also pair Smart with Rob more, and they’ve been a great duo so far this season. – 10:33 PM

Beautiful play from the Jazz results in a wide-open corner three for Joe Ingles — who doesn’t shoot it – 10:33 PM

Horford doing nothing on that Conley drive and sticking with Gobert is great defense. The mere act of challenging a layup drops the percentage by a significant margin. Horford didn’t make Rob’s mistake from earlier and the C’s cleaned up the defensive rebound – 10:26 PM

With 19 points in the first half, Al Horford is just one shy of his season high. The Celtics trail at the break though 59-56. Weird half for Utah, which made 11 3-pointers and shot 50 percent from the field, but committed 11 turnovers. Marcus Smart has been everywhere. – 10:06 PM

Oregon’s D is playing poorly and so is the run game.
Anthony Brown is not going to carry a team to a win against a good team like Utah, especially with just an okay group of mostly young receivers.

Jay King @ByJayKing
Al Horford letting the 3s fly tonight against Gobert and Whiteside. Already has six 3-point attempts, one shy of a season high. Seems to be an emphasis against Utah’s bigs who prefer to be near the basket. – 10:01 PM

The transition pullup shot Al Horford hit was correctly changed to a two from a three. Boston lost a point there. That’s why the score is 43-40 now. – 9:53 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz have committed 11 turnovers, Celtics are on a 12-0 run, Utah’s lead is down to 43-40. That lineup with Forrest and Clarkson as the ball-handlers just made one bad decision after another. Perimeter defense has been pretty bad, too. – 9:52 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Garland reminds me of Mike Conley once he started to let it fly. The sharpness of his cuts blends beautifully with Allen’s size and flexibility in space. The Allen-Mobley thing is working because both are difficult to dislodge in space – on both ends. Rubio’s been awesome. – 9:51 PM
