In a month or two it should be more clear what this roster has for a ceiling for this year. Nonetheless, the more wins we can pile on now, the greater that ceiling might become.

Such an attitude turns the grind of individual games into playoff atmospheres. We saw it against Cleveland, although the Hayward injury stopped that. I did not want to watch the rest of the game. It did feel that the season might be over or that we'd be more of a .500 team than a true ECF contender.

Brad's teams seem to start off slow and then take off in the second halves of seasons.

It'd be nice if we got off to a better start this one and then the improvements we've come to expect will be that much stronger.

The reason why I'm optimistic is because the Celtics did take care of Philly and New York, and then went on to a fairly easy first signature win against the solid Milwaukee Bucks.

I am taking it one game at a time. 4-2 is much better than 3-3. We should be able to win tonight. Then it's the Spurs as an early barometer. It will be a home game and in all likelihood a major nail biter.

I think this season looks similar to 2007-08. Or perhaps it is akin to the year without KG.

Stevens is a genius for shortening the rotation. We have a solid nine guys right now. It will be interesting to see who emerges out of the rotation bubble to become the 10th and 11th guys. No way will Brad lean on just nine players indefinitely.

Yet by doing so, he was able to stabilize the team. We are probably not looking at a 10-12 record after 22 games. And while it seems Hayward won't make it back for the playoffs, he just might.

Things to watch for in my opinion:

Marcus Smarts' shooting
Rozier, Brown and Tatum consistency or lack of
Larkin versus Smart and Rozier for backup pg
Perhaps the potential logjam with Theis, Ojeleye and Yabusele

Philly has damaged Amir Johnson as their veteran presence. We have Kyrie, Al and Baynes.

These are interesting times making it more difficult to skip games. The Celtics' prospects for the whole season may depend on the games taking place now. It will influence future Danny moves. I like how he is a realist. His and Brad's objective is not to create a perennial 50 win team.

The sample pool is very small right now, but the last run of games has certainly made me feel much more comfortable.

Baynes is starting.  Coming off the bench in Milwaukee is just so he could apply his minutes against Monroe, per Brad.

following the great team basketball pass up by Kyrie he overdribbles and ME-balls and takes a bad shot.

Good evening all. Time to see how good Kelly is doing in Miami. He lost 20 pounds when he was traded, interesting. I wonder if that was ever a thought on Celtic's management minds

I wonder if Johnson is still as impressive as he was his first year. Riley over paid for him so I wonder if has been worth it

Winslow had his hand on Brown.  Not his forearm, his hand.  That should be a foul
