Kemba Walker caught fire in Wednesday's 117-122 loss to the Pacers compiling 44 points, seven assists, seven triples, three rebounds and two steals.
Walker continues to be an absolute beast this season. As the unquestioned veteran leader on this team, you can expect these explosions every so often throughout the year.

Jaylen Brown dropped 18 points (7-for-12 shooting), eight rebounds, eight assists, two triples and one steal in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Brown continues to show no signs of slowing down since the return of Gordon Hayward, who actually left this game. Brown seems like he's in a groove right now and should continue to produce.

Jayson Tatum didn't have his shot going (4-for-13 shooting) on Wednesday but stayed aggressive attacking the basket (6-for-6 free throws) scoring 16 points to go along with six rebounds, three assists, two triples and two steals.
Tatum had been shooting pretty efficiently recently so it's not a surprise to see that fall off a bit. It's encouraging to see him put up a productive line even on the off night.

Brad Wanamaker finished Wednesday night's tilt against the Pacers with 12 points (4-for-9 shooting), six rebounds, one assist, one triple, one steal and a block across 24 minutes.
Wanamaker was the most productive player off the Celtics bench, and it's reasonable to expect him to produce at a stream-worthy level in games where Marcus Smart is inactive. Don't get much more exicted than that though.

Gordon Hayward will not return against the Pacers on Wednesday after suffering a blow to the nose.
Hayward just got back on the court after an earlier injury and it seems he has the worst injury luck. Look for the Celtics to provide an update in the coming days about his timetable to return.

Gordon Hayward took a shot to the face in Wednesday's game against the Pacers, forcing him out of the action.
This is terrible timing, as Hayward just made it back from a fractured left hand. Monitor the situation and hope for the best.

Romeo Langford (right ankle sprain) is officially available for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.
Langford has been injured for most of the season so far, having played more games with the G league team than with the Celtics. He could see some real opportunity in Wednesday's game with the news that Marcus Smart (eye infection) has been ruled out. Langford makes for an interesting low-cost DFS play. However, there is no guarantee that he will play.

Marcus Smart has been ruled out with an eye infection ahead of Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.
With Smart ruled out, there will be more opportunity for Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards and Brad Wanamaker. Romeo Langford could also some opportunity on Wednesday in what has been an injury-riddled first year.

Marcus Smart (eye infection) is still considered questionable for Wednesday's game.
Smart missed Monday's game and it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out another considering that he is resting at the team's hotel. Brad Stevens spread the minutes around on Monday to replace him in a blowout win over the Cavs.

Brad Stevens said this morning that rookie guard Romeo Langford will be available when the Celtics face the Pacers on Wednesday.
The rookie has struggled with injuries since the preseason so it’s good to finally see him ready to play. It’s unclear whether he will enter the rotation immediately and it’s likely that he he competes with Carsen Edwards for backup minutes.

Robert Williams (sore right hip) is being ruled out against the Pacers on Wednesday.
With Williams missing another game, Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter will again handle the center minutes for the Celtics in a timeshare.

Marcus Smart (eye infection) is being listed as questionable against the Pacers on Wednesday.
The Celtics may play it safe with this game being on the front-end of a back-to-back. Smart's minutes will be dispersed around the guard and wing rotation if he is unable to go.

Kemba Walker led the Celtics to a 110-88 win over the Cavs on Monday with 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting while chipping in two rebounds, seven assists, a block and five triples.
Walker is doing his job in Boston and the Celtics are able to also enjoy the growth of their young stars as well. He's posting top-25 value on the year and there's no reason to think he can't sustain that. It's all smiles in Bean Town right now.
December 9, 2019, 10:03 pmJayson TatumSF, Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum had another efficient night shooting the ball, scoring 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting while adding 11 baords, two assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers.
Wow. What a game from Tatum, who is posting top-35 value on the year on only .411 shooting. He's averaging a career-high 21.2 points per game while chipping in 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks and there's actually room for growth here as his shooting percentages should climb.
December 9, 2019, 10:01 pmJaylen BrownSG, Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown kept his foot on the gas on Monday, scoring 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Brown is showing signs of putting it together as he makes significant strides in his game this season. He's averaging a career-high 20.0 points per game on .496 shooting to go with 2.1 triples, 6.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals. Owners should carefully watch how he fares as Gordon Hayward slowly gets integrated, but it looks like he should be able to continue providing top-80 value.
