The NBA's L2M report confirms Josh Richardson fouled Jaylen Brown on the Tatum inbound with :25.7 left.
The no-call, arguably in a dead-ball situation, instead resulted in a turnover essentially ending the game.
The streak of L2M reports making no one feel better continues.
Tony Finau: Baller.

Kemba & Hayward both brought up the need for more cutting for easy baskets. Here, some of the Celtics walked me through what it takes to pull that off masslive.com/celtics/2019/1…
48 hours after Kyrie’s memory was booed in Boston, I ran into Al Horford. He expected a few boos for himself, but thought his legacy would represent him well.
“I hope they remembered how hard I worked & that I gave everything to this team.”
They did. theathletic.com/1457453/2019/1…

“From the moment I crossed halfcourt my eyes were on Gordon and whatever he did. In my mind I was saying ‘if he cuts, he’s going to be open.”
I spoke to a few of the Celtics to get them to explain what they see and when as they try to cut behind defenses masslive.com/celtics/2019/1…

"One thing I love about us is that we are not quitting, no fighting through adversity and when things are getting rough we aren’t putting our heads down.”

“We just have to learn how to win. We have a lot of lapses during these games. We have stretches where we’re playing super well. And then we have lapses. And we just have times where we’re just, like, it’s bad.” bostonglobe.com/sports/celtics…
Enes Kanter defensively vs. Joel Embiid last night:
12 pts, 4-11 FG (36.4%), 1 TO
All other Embiid defenders:
21 points, 7-9 (77.8%), 1 TO
For everyone screaming for Celtics to upgrade their bigs, Kanter and Boston’s bigs are ignoring the noise.

How rare was that Joel Embiid performance Thursday?
Thursday was the 971st game at TD Garden.
It was just the 7th 38-10-6 game in the building's history.

Marcus Smart factor?
Celtics entered the Pacers/Sixers back-to-back...
* 13-0 when scoring 108
* 10-0 when shooting 45%
They hit both numbers in both games.
And lost twice.
They'd also allowed 48% shooting just once in the first 22 games.
Both the Pacers and Sixers did it.
Our game went down to the wire for the second time in as many nights. on.nba.com/2YG6NTy
Kemba Walker said the Celtics have some “bad” lapses: “We just have to learn how to win. ... it’s going to take everybody.” Said he loves the Celtics don’t come apart when adversity hits.
Enes Kanter said he told Joel Embiid during the game not to worry about any of the criticism. I’m assuming he meant the stuff from Shaq and Charles. Said he’s obviously one of the NBA’s best big men, just needs to play his game.
Enes Kanter, when asked about the play late in the fourth quarter when he was called for a foul for running over a #Sixers player. "I don't want to get fined."
Enes Kanter asked about when he fouled Josh Richardson on that screen. Said he doesn’t want to get fined.
For the record, Grant Williams still has the Marcus Smart poster taped up in his locker.

Brad Stevens says he was encouraged by the quality of the shots the Celtics got tonight, as opposed to the season opener.
Abby asked Brad about the defensive work Kanter and Theis did against Embiid tonight, and Brad was like: They gave us great offense.
Stevens said with 34 seconds left, he knew the Celtics had enough time to get a 2-for-1 even if Simmons hit the free throws. He hit them, obviously, but sounds like the timing of it was important to Stevens.
Stevens: "We didn't go a good job on the Mike Scott 3s."
Brad Stevens: “Defensively we just gave up too many layups. ... we weren’t good enough at the rim probably.”
