No matter how frustrating things get for Celtics, there’s always picks 1, 10, 14, 21, 33, 42, 55 to fall back on. pic.twitter.com/5WMwoeZXtg— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) November 5, 2015
ATLANTIC DIVISION STANDINGS WATCH
2. If the Raptors are the King of the Atlantic, the Celtics have a LONG way to go before dethroning them. In what may be the win of the year for an Eastern Conference team, Toronto used a 13-point win in the 4th quarter to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road 103-98. The Raptors are 5-0.
3. The Knicks lost to the Cavaliers 96-86. New York is 2-3.
4. As referenced above, Brooklyn fell to 0-5.
5. The 76ers kept pace with the Nets last night by losing to the Milwaukee Bucks 91-87. Philadelphia is now 0-4.
FORMER CELTIC WATCH
6. Paul Pierce and the Clippers took their first loss last night as they fell to the Warriors by four. Pierce finished with 4 points on 4 free throws, was a team worst minus-18, and lost crunch time minutes to Austin Rivers and Lance Stephenson.
7. Rajon Rondo and the Kings moved to 1-4 following a loss in Phoenix last night. Rondo went 4-10 from the field, and finished with 9 points, 6 assists and 3 rebounds.
