Celts leading 65-55 at the half.  I'm really proud of them.  They're playing smart, and they're playing with energy, and they're playing tough.  I hope they don't wear down or all foul out against these behemoths in the second half, but they played one hell of a first half.  No matter what happens in this game, the first half featured the sort of developmental advances that these last six games should be used for.  For one thing, as Tommy's saying right now, they're paying with pace and not allowing Detroit to get set on defense, and that's very largely (but not at all entirely) due to Pressey.

Favorite stats of the half.  Let me count the ways:

• 70% of field goals assisted
• 24-17 in rebounds (11-8 offensive, 13-9 defensive)
• 8 for 12 from the arc
• Only 6 turnovers in the half despite playing with pace and swinging the ball relentlessly

Keep it up, guys.  I love it!

Detroit's offense looks disorganized.

Jeff is 6-13 for 19 points, pretty good. Only 1 reb, though.

Sullinger being 4 of 4 form 3 is truly an indictment against the Pistons' "perimeter defense."

The Pistons will obviously make a serious run.  C'mon, Celts, fight back.

Best ball movement of the YEAR ends in a Bayless three.

Jeff didn't appear to be paying the utmost attention to that pass.

And Jeff answers with a pump fake and a nice mid-range jumper.  (Att'n Cow.)

Nice lefty hook by Sully.  He's really working down low.

The C's are doing a hell of a job throwing this game away for the lottery.

The lead's down to 13.  Time to regroup.  With all these threes they're hitting, Detroit should be ripe for the Celts to go to the hoop.  Maybe when Drummond goes out for a blow.

The problem with hitting a bunch of 3s is the false sense of security that you'll continue hitting them.

Celts moving bodies and spreading the floor beautifully.  But unfortunately, Bass missed the slam.  Celts up by 12 as Phil drives.
