Celts beat GS after recently beating cavs

They're making my frequent criticisms of their composition look stupid

I still think they'll be a playoff flop but based on my track record I'm probably wrong again

They're winning on smarts and toughness and hunger

DJMUSIC: Fisher talked a good game in Post game but aside from that Derek Fisher was ALL CHIT CHAT SH_t and produced nothing!

Don't forget they're adding two top three picks to what they already have in the 2017 and 2018 drafts.

I think the celtics will struggle in the playoffs- in the regular season they have so many possible lineup combinations, they are a hard team to prep for defensively (see their regular changes of starters and bench players) and so have the element of surprise. They won't have that in the playoffs.

I do hope they fall in this years draft to 4th

I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

If he gets back to what he was cavs just got a steal. I don't think all teams would be a good match for him, but I think Bron's intensity and leadership may help.

I'm sure there are other factors involved, but for what it is worth, if Minny beats Washington tonight, they will be 9-7 since Zach Lavine left the lineup.

It looks like it is over. Rubio 22 and 19.

Last 5 games for him...about 17.5 PPG...12.5 APG...5.5 RPG...2 SPG and shooting % is way up...

Rubio for Rose would'be been a steal. Sigh. Not even blaming Phil here, just wish it had happened while Rubio's stock was down.

Parsons now out again wth a meniscus tear- I laugh at those who say Noah is the worst contract in the league! Parsons has been AWFUL all year- he's a con many who has charmed his way to wealth.

Here's the great thing about the Rubio for Rose swap.... it can still happen if the Knicks want AND NY will be in the drivers seat on that trade. Knicks will have the ability to sign and trade Rose; Minny (most likely) will NOT have the ability sign Rose outright AND if they didn't want to deal with the Knicks they would have to get rid of Rubio first.

I can't remember one either. The Lakers give up their pick if it falls out of the top 3.

Didn't the last CBA put a stop to sign and trades?

Haven't the suns also shut down Knight and Tyson?

Lakers are screwed- I can understand signing one veteran, but mosgov AND Deng for that money was madness
