If Bridges can finally start making 3s on a consistent basis that could be a big game changer for this team.

Ayton fouled 4 times on that play, haha. Probably shouldn’t put the ball on the floor with 4 Celtics around him.

With 3:20 left in the first, the Suns didn’t get their next point until 9:30 left in the 2nd. Boston caught up to them in that time.

I guess Marcus Smart turned into James Harden before this game.

I keep thinking K-Ray is praising his decision-making. Every time he does anything, KR says, “Smart.”
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

More ammo for the "Bridges needs to start" crowd.

Cs getting away with a ton of push offs. We've gotten caught on lobs twice in a row now.

Why can't Booker throw the little alley-oop to Ayton?

When did Smart become a good three point shooter?

BS call against Booker right there. Tatum shoulders his way into a retreating Booker and gets a foul call.

Tommy Heinson has no idea what Ayton’s name is. “The youngsters”, “the young fellow”, “this guy”, etc.

Wow, Bridges 4/4 from 3 to help counteract Smart. Really glad to see him gaining confidence there.

Devin likes playing in Boston. Is there any history there that I'm not familiar with?
