The Celtics are rolling to the top of the Eastern Conference, but can they maintain trajectory with no Time Lord in the lineup? The guys discuss their confidence a “No Time Lord, no problem” scenario. Robert Williams went down late against Minnesota with a torn meniscus. An injury that’s likely to keep him out until the second round of the playoffs could spell disaster for Boston. The burden falls on Al Horford and recently reunited Daniel Theis to fill his role until then.
Last Sunday, The Minnesota Timberwolves came to town to face the Celtics. Liam shares what it was like to be in attendance for the 134-112 beat-down served up by the green teams two stars. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum combined for 65 points notching another in the win column.
After a stellar performance at home, the Celtics went to the Great White North to face the Raptors. Overshadowed by the loss of Robert Williams, the two J’s sat out the game in Toronto. A short-handed squad led by Marcus Smart comes up 3 points short in an overtime loss. Despite the defeat, the guys are still psyched up. What positives could be taken away from this loss in Toronto?
As the season closes, is there a case to be made for Ime Udoka to win Coach of the Year? Since RJ Barrett’s buzzer beater to beat the Celtics leaving them at a floundering 23-24 record, Boston has bounced back to the tune of a 24-5 record. A season turnaround for the ages moving Boston from the 11th seed up to the 1st before the loss. This alone should springboard Udoka to the top of the COTY list. A team that once looked lost, out of sync, and inept at times is now at the top.
