Big shot by Siakam. A five-point lead after a half in which Kemba didn't make a shot from the floor would have been nice for the C's.

Whatever. Still a nice close out to the half, more or less.

Kemba gets bumped constantly near halfcourt then raked across the face on a 3-pointer, no goddamn call. Give a fucking earful to that official, good grief.

Celtics with a lead at the half. I’ll take it. That 35’ three with the clock expiring kind of hurt though.

You have 250 cameras on the court and you don't have one that can definitively say if he was hit in the face?
Exactly, and I love Doris' confidence he WASN'T hit based on that rear view. Just slowing down the regular view would have shown us more on that play.

Wow I didn't even know Tatum had 16 points already. Things look so easy and natural for him now.

One good thing about this game: the refs haven't been crazy with the whistles. They're letting them play.

Toronto is having a world of trouble when the Celtics are fully engaged on D. The closeouts have been mostly on point but not overzealous, and most shots are being challenged to some degree, though Siakam finding a bit more daylight when they get him moving downhill. Still feeling good. Just need to tighten up the ballhandling. No need to try to be a hero, just move the ball.

Did FVV win some sort of lottery to get his family into the bubble? Is he the only one whose kids are now here?

What did Theis do to get called for a foul there? He stood straight up, didn't even jump and Gasol just jumped into him and threw up a floater hook. Foul on Theis...

The Raptors aren't ready to run through a brick wall after that Nick Nurse speech, but they're willing to consider running through wet rice paper.

I think we’ve used up all the even somewhat questionable whistles we’re going to get
