As you all know by now, the Boston Celtics are a depleted group, with an injury report stronger than most teams' starting lineups.
Tonight, the Boston Celtics traveled to the capital of California -- although Shaq still contends that Los Angeles is the actual capital -- to face off against the Sacramento Kings.
Here's the deal. It's the end of the season. The Celtics are limping to the playoffs, but that's not stopping their second, third, and even fourth units from playing some of the most inspired basketball of the season. No Kyrie. No Jaylen. No Smart. No Their. Tatum with a sore back and, of course, no Hayward. Enter the Oklahoma City Thunder with three sure-fire Hall-of-Famers. Enter another win for the Cs, followed by another impressive comeback win in Portland on Friday night.
And now, we play the Kings. Hopefully we don't let up. BEFORE THE TIP
Let's go Kings!
Wait, do we even want to win this game?
Wait, do we even have a chance to win this game?
Hold on, there's a game? I'm too busy watching March Madness, trying to figure out who we'll be drafting in June.

Hey, Morris is their leading scorer right now -- and he's out. We got this, right? Right?
6 of the 12 on the Celtics roster are rookies. 6 of our 12 are 50+ years old. This should be interesting.
Jaylen Brown is playing? Great. Of course he picks us to test his stamina.
Guess who's starting TONIGHT vs #SacramentoProud ? Don't miss Jaylen Brown's return 🤓
