OK, Celtics fans, Friday was a tough loss (119-112 to Milwaukee). We played a good team but still that was a winnable game.
It obviously hurts that Kemba only played 19 minutes, and hopefully he will be at full strength come playoff time.
Jayson has to play better - 5 points - isn't going to get it done. You're better than that Jay and I know he will be better on Sunday. Jaylen Brown was great and Marcus and Wanamaker off the bench were also big positives.
Sunday is a must-win type game to me. I don't think Boston is going to catch Toronto for second and really it doesn't matter since there is no home court now. I'm not afraid of anybody in the first round.
However, the Celtics need to stay in front of a surging Miami team and keep from falling to the 4 spot. The most important thing is the Celtics need to get this win over Portland and get some momentum before the playoffs.
They should beat Portland, but it won't be easy. The Blazers are playing well. If the Celtics play their game they will be fine. Let's get this!
Until next time, Go Celtics!
