They have not really missed a beat. It will be interesting
to see when he comes back and they are at full strength.


Playoffs are a WHOLE different ballgame, Celts will need another scorer if they hold any hopes of winning it all.

On a random NBA note, did anyone know that Jaimoe's daughter is a New York Knicks cheerleader?

i know-the games are meaningless to some, but if you love the NBA,it's been a GREAT summer with lots to look forward to.......should be FUN


yep a fun 2nd half of season (post all-star game)
Their backcourt is second to no one's save Curry/Klay -- Tor is right there w/anyone in league -- Kyrie probable to play tonite -- Not-so by end of week --
Tor crowd will be enRaptored -- by top-shelf hoops that will tell plenty about where these squads stand -- Sharp 2nite Boys, let's go

if the Warriors extend OKC to L5 tonite, & the Jazz go W7 tmrw at Memphis, suddenly Utah just 3 back of OKC -- things change quickly in the NBA -- Big Z, I mean Blake Griffin & the Detroit Pistons, W5??

season, & Fred Hoiberg's tenure, likely overwith in Windy City.....injuries to Messers. Fultz & K.Leonard continue to baffle experts
....Joel Embiid said he felt great after playing back to backs last week -- I Am Not A Phila Fan & Never Will Be, but it's good to see a player of his talent, who's had several surgeries, being able to play full time -- Let's go Celts

Watched Detroit - Portland last night...........YES, Griffin/Drummond combo looks lethal, they are already starting to put it together after only 5 games. Looks like this trade was great for Detroit. Griffin was just on fire last night, hitting from everywhere on the court. Detroit looks like they could make some noise in the East playoff standings.

Great one tonight, OKC @ Warriors. Warriors need to step it up, we have lost 2 of our last 3..........Utah (L), Sacramento (W), Denver (L). But you just can't be ON for the entire 82 games. I'm sure Warriors will be UP for OKC tonight.

Raptors all over the Celtics last night. Their bench is so improved and makes such a difference to last season. DeRozen, Lowry and JV have all been lights out this year too. Will be interesting come playoff time.

WOW. I'm kind of in shock over the beating that OKC gave my Warriors last night in Oakland. Russell Westbrook had one of his scary dominant games with lots of highlight plays..........he had 34, Paul George had 38 and Steven Adams had 14 points and 10 rebounds as he seemingly had his way inside against the Warriors' "center by committee".

Even more interesting since OKC had lost 4 straight going into this game, the Warriors had lost 2 out of 3. You would have thought the Warriors would be ready but they could not match the Thunder's intensity and got in a big first quarter hole that they never could crawl out of as OKC scored 42 points in the first quarter alone. That means that the Warriors have now lost 3 out of 4, something that has not happened before during Steve Kerr's coaching tenure.

As the announcers said, this was a statement game, and should make for a very interesting series if these two should meet in the playoffs. My feeling is that the Warriors are in a mid-season lull. They'll be back.

My sympathies to Knicks fans: Kristap Porzingis out for the season, torn ACL.

Just one more side note: I watched Philly blow out Washington last night before Warriors' game. BEN SIMMONS IS A SCARY TALENT!!! Seriously, I have NEVER seen anyone at 6'10" handle the ball like this dude!!! And he can play ANY position! With he and Embiid, barring injury, 76ers will be a force for years to come.................

4 wins in a row for the Pistons now. Need to sit down and watch a game with Griffin.

I was looking up some info on the Pacers game tonight. Its postponed
in New Orleans due to a leak in the roof. I got a kick out of the
name of the arena where they play at. Its called the Smoothie King Center.

The NBA trade deadline is today at 3:00 PM Eastern time. I am going to make a prediction: The Warriors will make a deal to obtain a big man who is a defensive presence and can protect the rim. Who they get and who they trade is beyond me. But I think losing 3 of their last 4 has exposed that fact that a defensive presence in the paint is their glaring weakness. The center by committee trio of Zasa Pachulia, David West and Javale McGee is just not getting it done, and really West is a forward anyway.

Well I certainly was wrong............Warriors stood pat at trade deadline.

Any Cleveland fans here? Wondering what you think about your brand new team!

I only wonder why the Celts insist on spotting teams huge leads!!!! (42-20 Indy)
it's been the pattern for quite a spell now -- it will catch up to us, probly sooner than later (97-91 indy)

Nice win for the Pacers

Usually Indiana is the one giving up the big leads and having to fight back.

Maybe IT will get a chance to shine in LA -- maybe he & Lonzo will find that elusive chemistry -- LA has played well w/out Ball the last few weeks

at least it solved the IT in town on Paul Pierce Day thing -- boy have Cav hit skids or what -- we now know what Kevin Love means to their old team, now their new one takes over
it can't be swept under the rug -- their 7-13 slump coincided w/Isaiah's return -- everyone says he's a defnsv liability, but he wasn't last year

Jazz W8 -- Rodney Hood I think will help Cleve, good scorer -- he was expendable w/Utah's guard depth, & Alec Burks & Raul Neto deserve to play a lot, they're both good players as are the starters, Rubio & their rookie, Donovan Mitchell -- Derrick Rose should be behind them

THE TRUTH
15 YEARS -- 2nd only to Jarrin' John, 1 year ahead of the Chief
Paul was never better than when C's went something like 27-2 at the start of I THINK 2008-09 (thought it was year after winning title) -- recall posting here that, didn't wanna keep clogging up the boards w/all my posts, only impossible because of how he/they were playing -- then KG got hurt, etc etc
Those glasses he wears as a TV analyst -- he looks real different -- they almost look like old-fogie glasses

Shaq Said It Well After A 2010 Game In Which Paul Had 42 Points (cut & pasted from wlkpdia)

Take this down", said O'Neal. "My name is Shaquille O'Neal and Paul Pierce is the mother **** truth. Quote me on that and don't take nothing out. I knew he could play, but I didn't know he could play like this. Paul Pierce is The Truth."

Paul Pierce was a great Celtic. It took me a while to warm up to him. Once he matured, he was fun to watch. I liked his compete level, and his trash talking. He was fearless. He might go down as one of the best pure scorers the Celtics have had. I;m glad he's having his day.

Paul was the man.

And yes the Big 3 teams started 29-3 in the championship year and then 27-2 the next year as you mentioned.

Should be a fun day tomorrow.

Excellent read!!
Robert Parish calls Paul "the greatest offensive Celtic ever" -- big ups coming from the Chief
Bottom line, concern in camp, Tor just won big, we've been inconsistent & that's not lost on Paul, the fans/players etc -- but Pierce was some player & all kudos/plaudits/accolades etc today are in order -- Reward The Truth With Four Good Quarters Boys!

Wow it's just one game but sure looked like a different Cavs team. I don't remember when I've seen LeBron so happy and animated on the sideline. Based on today looks like the Cavs might turn this thing around. But I've followed the Lakers since I was a little kid so I already knew that Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, Jr could play.

good thing just 1 more b4 the all star break
the armor is showing more than cracks -- losing by 29 points last Tues in Tor -- by 26 Friday vs Pacers --
& On Paul Pierce Day in Boston, w/many of the greats in attendance -- Paul, left to clean up after the boys sh!t the bed again
Jazz have tried their new kid, O'Neale, at ctr to good effect -- we gotta do something like that -- what I don't know -- Greg Monroe ought to be a good addition

hopefully our young kids, Jayson/Jalen/Terry R aren't getting basketball burnout or anything -- we'll be fine -- let's go Celts -- Not-so back after break, he's a big part of what we do

the cavs are playing very well given it's only 2 games with the new team.

what a great improvement & imo they are the best team in the east as of today.

my knicks need to tank for a few years in order to rebuild...ongoing lousy team for years now is frustrating...go cavs!(in the meantime!)

I'm not sold on a team bouncing players around and having success. I will take a team built together like the Raptors or Golden State over that any day. Sure there are additions and subtractions but the core grew together.

If the Raptors stay ahead of Boston and retain home court. They will give people troubles especially the way that their bench is playing. I am pulling for the Raptors but would prefer either them or Boston over the Cavs in the playoffs.
