Isaiah Thomas was the lone bright spot for the Celtics with 29 points and three 3-pointers.
The Pizza Guy showed up tonight possibly in an effort to lure soon-to-be free agent Kevin Durant to Beantown. Unfortunately, his dynamic backcourt sidekicks didn’t have his back as Marcus Smart scored only two points with seven rebounds on 1-for-10 shooting and Avery Bradley scored 14 points without much else. Bradley is putting up top-1oo value in the last month and has cooled off on his torrid pace earlier in the year but is still worthy of a spot on your roster. I would stay the course with Marcus Smart as well for his ability to contribute in steals and assists. Evan Turner bottomed out with four points and has really cooled off as of late. He’s put up top-110 value over the last month so owners may want to cut him some slack here with Jae Crowder (ankle) out for an extended amount of time. Expect the Celtics to play a lot better the next time out but they are really missing the presence of Crowder who will likely be out at least another week.
