The bench deflection: Marcus Morris and Greg Monroe need to chill

How settled games from Marcus Morris and Greg Monroe could swing the series One of the few bright spots for the Celtics in their tied series with the Bucks has been (despite a greatly thinned roster) the Celtics starters have largely won their head to head matchups with the Bucks starters. Bucks starters Tyler Zeller, Malcolm Brogdon, and Giannis Antetokounmpo (!!!) have the worst +/- over the course of the series for the Bucks, and Celtics starters Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier and Al Horford are the team’s only players currently in the positive. Unfortunately, Milwaukee’s...

Brown and Tatum combined for 55 points in Celtics game 4 loss to Bucks MILWAUKEE, WI — Moral victories don’t count for much in the playoffs. Silver linings? You can keep them.

Celtics rookie Semi Ojeleye brings rugged defense to the playoff mix

Celtics rookie Semi Ojeleye brings rugged defense to the playoff mix

Boston’s rookie bruiser has yet to have much of an offensive impact, but his minutes in Game 3 against the Milwaukee Bucks shored up the Celtics defense and let his teammates go to work. Boston’s rookie forward Semi Ojeleye isn’t the flashy scorer that Jayson Tatum is, nor is he the lengthy rim protector and runner like Daniel Theis. He’s not the wild, electric presence that Guerschon Yabusele is either. What Ojeleye is is 235 pounds of reliable, switchable, quick-footed defensive muscle. And when Celtics coach Brad Stevens brought Ojeleye in for Aron Baynes near the...

Does Jayson Tatum need to ‘show up’?

Does Jayson Tatum need to ‘show up’?

An argument with myself. Sometimes I will do research on a subject and I will be unable to come to a definite conclusion. During these times I will get frustrated, eat Peanut M&Ms from the ‘family size bag’ until I fall asleep, wake up suddenly, hit my head on the Gundam model hanging from my ceiling and concuss myself. During these moments of temporary brain damage, I’m able to separate an argument into two parts and have that argument with myself. Today’s question is “Does Jayson Tatum Need To Show Up In This Series?” Pro-Sam: Howdy folks, my name is Pro-Sam and today I’d...
