Celtics-Raptors preview: New-look C's hope for new results vs Toronto

http://www.nbcsports.com/boston/celtics/boston-celtics-toronto-raptors-preview-new-look-cs-hope-new-results-vs-toronto

By A. Sherrod Blakely November 11, 2017 6:28 PM

BOSTON – It’s easy for folks to forget about those early days of the Brad Stevens era when crushing defeats, not come from behind wins, were the norm.

No team seemed to have the Boston Celtics (11-2) number in the East like today’s opponent, Toronto, which has beaten the Celtics more than any other team in the league since Stevens took over in 2013.

But these are different times, and this is a very different Celtics team which comes into today’s matchup against Toronto (7-4) with the best record in the league fueled by a season-best 11 game winning streak. 

“It should be a fun one,” said Celtics guard Terry Rozier. “We’re gonna be ready. We’re gonna play Celtics basketball. We’re just gonna do what we do; no matter who we got, no matter who we’re gonna play with, we’re gonna play hard.”
Rozier’s comments alluded to the possibility that Boston will be without their leading scorer Kyrie Irving. 

The Celtics list the four-time All-star as doubtful after suffering a “minor facial facture” in Boston’s 90-87 win over Charlotte on Friday night when teammate Aron Baynes accidentally hit him in the face in the first quarter. 

Regardless of how prominent a player may be on this team, injuries have done little to keep Boston from achieving their primary goal every game which is to come away with a win. 

Boston has the longest current winning streak in the NBA at 11 games despite missing Gordon Hayward (ankle) for all but the first five minutes of the season, Al Horford (concussion) for the last two games and potentially Irving who was unable to return against Charlotte on Friday but the Celtics still managed to rally for a 90-87 win over Charlotte.

“We want to keep going and control what we can control,” Rozier said. “We just want to stay focused, stay in the moment, and worry about the next game and keep taking it day by day.”

That is a good approach heading into today’s game against the Raptors, one of the top teams in the East which has had Boston’s number for years. 

Since Stevens took over, the Raptors have an 11-5 record against Boston which is more wins against Boston than any other team in the NBA in that span. 

But again, this is a different season and these Celtics are clearly a different team that has managed to find ways to win regardless of the opponent or who on Boston’s roster is healthy enough to play. 

“Just keep doing what we do,” Jaylen Brown told NBC Sports Boston. “Make them make tough shots. We just have to keep guarding at a high level and just keep playing with high intensity and see what happens. Just go out there and play the game the right way, have fun and I say we have a great chance to go out there and win again. I just think we’re the better team.  I know they have a lot of individual talent over there, but I feel if we play the way we’re supposed to play with the group that we got … not a lot of teams can beat us.”

Big test here.  Raptors are a good team and we're without Irving.  We were without Irving last game but the Raptors aren't the Hornets.

Smart better post Lowry up because on defense he is not going to be able to stay in front of him on defense.

We really lucked out with Kyrie, that was scary Friday.

Jaylen looking for his shot early. And Tatum.

How about the kids beating the veterans??

Smart is SO good with getting and keeping his man on his hip.  Too bad he can't finish.

Like Baynes effort on the glass but we would be better served if he just grabs the rebound.  Playing pitty patty is not going to get it.

Nice start for Boston.
