There's no better matchup for a Green Envy than playing against the Los Angeles Lakers. Relishing the schadenfreude of the purple and gold is a longstanding Boston Celtics tradition, and with both teams emerging from rebuilds, the rivalry actually has some kick to it. Early on, it seemed like the win was a lock for the Celtics, until the Lakers clawed their way back into it. Boston pulled away in the fourth behind Aron Baynes' career night, ruining the Lake Show's attempt at a statement in the Garden. No love lost here - and quite a bit of levity, if you ask me.
Lakers Break The Streak
today is the day guys…
won’t this be our best start in years if we get 6-5
LET'S GO LAKERS!
We got this one Bron. You pay us back next season by coming to the Lakers!
It is hard to overstate how important this game is to me!
As the saying goes: It’s not life and death. It’s more important than that!
FEAR BEGINS TO SPREAD
Bad sequence there
Not familiar that much with Baynes but wasn't he from the Spurs originally?
If so, I expect him to be good for them defensively
They laying Lonzo tf out on these screens
That's twice Bropez has lost us a possession by not hustling.
We need his scoring though.
Not looking good so far- they're getting good shots and we're not hitting much
Gotta lock down defensively
Because the offense will be pretty bad especially with that Celtics defense
Gonna be a long night if they keep missing things
PANIC TAKES HOLD
After the last week of games I thought Luke had his shit together. Now we’re gonna experiment against the fucking Celtics?
Wow. KCP is trash right now.
Wow Luke wtf are you thinking.
Where is Randle and Clarkson?
Get Bogut and Brewer out of there. They are d-leaguers
GET BOGUT OUT OF THE FUCKING GAME
I’m so sick of Walton’s substitutions.
can we just leave Bogut in Boston when we leave tonight?
Man, i at least wanted to enjoy this game. Wasn’t expecting a win, but was at least looking forward to something watchable after the last week or so of games.
Somebody mentioned it above but I'm really wondering if they're in talks with a team about a Randle trade
I’m very critical of Randle but he’s been one of our best players since being benched and has absolutely earned more minutes. Either that or he’s bumping heads with Luke because otherwise there’s no excuse for his lack of minutes especially after Nance’s injury
Smart blocked Lonzo, justgetting back a bit
even when we steal the ball we give it right back
Bayns is not this good
STOP TURNING THE BALL OVER!
What a time for a bad offensive game from both Lopez and Kuzma
Oh sure call a travel but not the foul by 3 Celts.
Brewer has been absolutely USELESS
This is fucking ugly. Make some subs Luke.
Lopez is a worthless sack of crap who could take lessons on how to hustle from a third grader with asthma.
THE COLD, HARD TRUTH
Celtics giving us every chance to take a lead here and we can put a pebble in the fucking ocean right now.
Kyrie freaking Irving
He scores in his sleep. He’s gonna get his 20+ regardless of who’s in front of him
