Give Deontay a ton of credit right now. Looks like a busted ear drum - his equilibrium has to be way off - and he’s still standing, even if wobbly.
Giannis showing Joel Embiid who’s actually the best player in the world.

Tremont Waters is the only two-way player to be top-10 in the G League in points, assists and steals per game. He also has the seventh-best offensive rating out of all two-way players.
Never realized that Bill Self has the Boeheim-esque, Can't tell if he's happy or mad face.

apparently my son woke up today and said “daddy home!” then ran around the house looking for me so I’ll be curled up on the floor for the rest of the morning
If you had 5:04am eastern as our L.A. hotel arrival time this morning...what can I tell you, you’re like really good at guessing things.
Over 24 games since Jan. 1, the Celtics own a 112.0 offensive rating without Kemba Walker on the court. That would rank seventh overall for the full season.
Prior to that, the Celtics had a 99.7 offensive rating without Walker. That would rank dead last by a mile and a half.

I asked Cs players to pick one area for team to improve over the rest of the season.
I also uncovered why Marcus Smart was late for the second half.
“He over there stinking it up and we’re trying to win. But if you gotta go, you gotta go.”

Sunday the Celtics will try and sweep the season series from the Lakers.
It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it bodes well.

Celtics when leading by 11+
Last year: 39-12
This year: 33-1
Daniel Theis career high 16 rebounds Friday. The last Celtic other than Enes Kanter to get 16?
Al Horford, exactly one year ago, February 21, 2019.
Marcus Smart season-high 10 assists on Friday. The last Celtic other than Kemba Walker to get 10?
Al Horford, last April.
Fun fact: With the Wizards home loss to Cleveland Friday night, the Celtics win in Minneapolis reduces the magic number to clinch their 6th straight playoff spot to 10...on February 21st.
(The Bucks could clinch this weekend.)
Season-high 10 assists for Marcus Smart in the win over the Wolves. First double-double of the season for him as well.

This could be Gordon Hayward talking about the 12:30 Lakers tip or a dad talking to his kids about a morning drive to their grandparents. You decide.
"We’ve got to make sure we get some good sleep, an early breakfast and be ready to go."
Brad Stevens on Daniel Theis: "I think the way that he plays just fits the other guys perfect."
Hayward: "That’s kind of the strength of our team, is the amount of guys that can go off at any point in time."
Hayward on Theis: "He’s really unselfish and by that it’s not always passes. He just gives up his body a lot with his cuts, with his screens, sealing guys, letting us get open looks."
Observations from the Celtics' win over the Timberwolves: bostonglobe.com/sports/celtics…
When told that Sunday’s tip-off is scheduled for 12:30 pm in LA, Gordon Hayward smiles and says, “Oh I love it.” Then added he’s probably in the minority on the team with that hot take. “That’s what kids will do to you.”
