    Kemba Walker to Boston

    What if his x number of buckets create enough of a lead that he doesn't have to shoot much in the last 5 minutes? Half full and all. Or, if because he was one of the few/only outside shooting threat in Charlotte because of the roster, the opposition was always heavily keying on him? Color me...

    Bruins at Rangers

    I came in within the last 5-8 minutes or so. Who opened Lingren up?

    Bruins at Rangers

    Marchand deserves the penalty, but um, 0.8 seconds after he cross checked someone from behind, he was cross checked from behind with the ref having just the same view. Ugh.

    Yeah, but he used a rifle.

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    I was thinking a bit about the leap this year of the two Jays (and to a lesser but real extent Marcus Smart and his passing). Many have commented on better handles, more attacking, additions to their game. We've given a lot of credit in a lot of deserved directions. I think there is one more...

    Bruins sign Jeremy Lauzon to a 2-year contract extension

    Does the signing of that deal make him more tradeable or is that an indication that they like him a lot or is there a short term cap component to it? Sometimes modern sports management makes following the game annoying... lol

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    I think this might also be (beyond both of them putting in the off season hours on their handle) a by-product of the seal set. As they've both learned to exploit the set, they've gotten comfortable with putting defenders behind them (in jail?), change the pace of their penetration, and...

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    Agreed on the swapping of the long step-in 2 in favor of the 3s. It gives him shots on 3 levels or distances, making it even harder to guard him. As the defender no matter what you give him, he can effectively take it. It also complements the seal set they run as another option off the actions.

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    Agree wrt to the ISO, #3 is the only case where it bothers me (again, from any player on any team - I just dislike iso basketball). I see the point about creating space for their other creators. I just wonder if his patience, vision, and passing are ready for that kind of a concentrated approach.

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    That's a real good point, I'm betting most of the league watched that game last night - it was the last one before the break. Players/coaches looking at the play of Tatum (especially defensively on Leonard) will kind of nod to themselves that he's the real deal at this point - if they hadn't...

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    It's fun watching the leap. As others have said, that extra gear, taste of the rarefied air came in a game against one of the best. My only complaint was the Paul Pierce iso run the clock down stuff. I don't want to watch ANY player do that regularly. I also think that weakens the...

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    I agree with this, Young is electric with the ball and on offense, but elevating him above players that have a lot more of a complete game seems wrong.

    2/13: Clippers at Celtics

    The far side ref has decided to rebalance the Scott Foster bias.

    No, no, no, yes!

    Almost like he had money on the game or knows someone who does.

    2/13: Clippers at Celtics

    I think Green would be a better choice 1v1 on Williams.

    2/13: Clippers at Celtics

    I think Kanter will benefit the most from the All Star break. Edit: and Brown

    2/13: Clippers at Celtics

    Kanter still walking gingerly.

    2/13: Clippers at Celtics

    Herrell just puts a massive shoulder into Kanter and bangs him back 2 feet, no call. Smart goes to the basket, gets held and hacked, offensive foul. Weird.

    Bruins vs. Canadiens

    Any word on McAvoy? He was in some pain as the period ended.
