The Boston Celtics are the NBA’s most confusing team

We gotta talk about Gordon: Last night it seemed as if GH had turned a corner, drawing fouls at pivotal moments for key free throws, stealing the ball effortlessly, the jump shot looking reasonable. "I was told he's not on a minutes restriction, so I just played who I thought gave us the best chance to winning that given game on that given night". "But as you throw yourself into the defensive end, a lot of those feelings are diluted if not mitigated". When he gets into that mode, the whole arena knew where we were going, and so did the Raptors.

"They just have to play off of him, " said Stevens.

But they out-scored Toronto 29-25 in the final frame, knotting the score at 90-90 on Irving's three-pointer.

The Celtics haven't played up to expectations so far in this 2018-19 season.

"Kyrie did a great job in the fourth quarter knocking down shots", said Kawhi Leonard, who scored 31 points and had a season-high 15 rebounds for Toronto.

The Celtics 86 points were a season low and they shot like a team with exhausted legs, missing 28-of-33 three-point attempts-and 17-of-18 in the second half.

The Celtics looked like a completely different team in the fourth quarter and overtime, finally playing with aggressiveness on offense. The over/under for the game will be 218 points, according to National Basketball Association oddsmakers at Bovada.

In the past two seasons, the five-time All-Stars previous game-highs were 47 points against the Dallas Mavericks in 2017-18 (he had six assists) and 49 points against the New Orleans Pelicans in 2016-2017 (he had four assists).

"I wasn't playing well in the first half, and I just knew I had to be better", Tatum said.

"I'm happy he left me in", Hayward said.

Putting Hayward on the bench during crunch time against the Raptors because he had played so many minutes was something Stevens didn't consider. It's been such a long time since I've done that, so it's a good confidence builder. It's wonderful, frankly, that Irving has been able to be this dominant for such a long stretch.

The Raptors never got closer than three points after that. Early in the fourth quarter, he got to the rim for a layup; he had a massive dunk to pull Boston to within two with 48.7 seconds remaining in regulation; and he hit a floater in the lane midway through overtime that pushed Boston out to a multipossession lead for the remainder of the game. Derrick Rose scored 17 points, Robert Covington and Karl-Anthony Towns added 14 each, Jeff Teague had 13 and Taj Gibson contributed 12 for the Timberwolves, who won their third straight game and avenged a 111-81 defeat at Portland on November 4. There was no shot that he couldn't make.
