Have to think they come out with the appropriate energy this afternoon and it’s a fairly easy win.
I've found that the games I expect to be C's blowouts rarely turn out that way, for whatever reason. In this case, though, the Friday nite loss should be sufficient motivation for Boston to be locked in from the start.

Any word on Blake Griffin's status? That could change things. He's still capable of big games, and I'm not sure which Celtic would defend him.

I'd love to know how often Tatum makes his first shot in a game. I'm guessing it's about 25 percent of the time. Maybe less.

Celtics' defense is non-existent. Pistons are 9 for 11 from the floor.

Two big lineup stays in even after Detroit pulls their 2nd big for a wing, is predictably toasted on D.

It’s sad that the best thing I can say for the Celtics is “they have realized after 6 games that their best player should touch it a lot.”

As someone noted Friday nite, Derek Rose always kills the C's.

Yikes Detroit is hitting 67% of their shots and 56% of their 3s. I’m sure they will come back to earth but the Celtics should be strong on the defensive side.

Mike having trouble calling the right player. That was Teague, not Tatum. Hopefully gets better when he is at the arena.

There was a foul before the shot, so it didn't matter, but Time Lord should have tried to direct the ball toward a teammate instead of volleyball-killing it back toward the Pistons. The awareness he shows on offense is MIA when he's on defense.

If Killian Hayes is hitting 3s, the Celtics are in trouble today.
