CLPod 041: The Mask, the streak, the DPE, and the big week ahead

The week before the Boston Celtics face off with the defending champion Golden State Warriors, Kyrie Irving got his face broken by Aron Baynes, Jayson Tatum tweaked his ankle, and the Cs still managed to keep their streak alive.

Twelve games deep, they now sit atop the league with sole possession of first place, and we're all collectively pinching ourselves, waiting for the dream to go down with a loss. It would seem logical the Warriors would be the team to knock them down a peg, but could the game before (the Brooklyn Nets) or after (the Atlanta Hawks) sneak up on Boston while it focuses on Golden State? Join Mark Allison and Justin Quinn as they discuss the streak, Kyrie Irving's newest accessory, potential options to fill the Disabled Player Exception (DPE), and much, much more.
