For those not watching on Comcast, Brad says some of Kelly's minutes will probably be given to Shav and to Wallace at the "4" (which Brad says he has done before with good results.

Go Celtics!

I thought so. The Celtics have had 14 possessions so far, and Crowder has had 3 touches. They're sticking him almost exclusively in the weak side corner (away from the ball). Perhaps he's helping to spread the floor, but he's not in any kind of position to score.

Boy, Steady Eddie Bass is so consistent and so intrepid. And you could add "versatile," since he's starting at center lately.

Good drive by Pressey to get the two-for-one. And a super block by Prince.

Old friend Brian Shaw coaching the Nuggets. I don't think Red ever forgave him for playing in Italy....

Hadn't seen that move before. Pressey fell down and crawled through the legs of he picking guy but couldn't prevent the shot. A for effort, though.

I do not think Nelson had 15 points the whole time he was here. Guess he is happy now.

Sam, did you see the pre game story on the HOF? Jackie Mac was saying what a great place it is and she cannot believe that anyone who is a basketball fan and lives in Massachusetts has not been to the Hall. She is involved in some project (movie coming out in 2017) about basketball and the Hall

Favorite stat of the half.  Tough to choose because there are really no candidates; Nuggs lead in most categories: FGA, Rebounds, Assists, three point percentage.  Celts have assisted on only 7 of 17 made field goals (41%).

So I guess I'll go with Sully's 12 points—the only Celt in double figures and instrumental in bringing them back from a 3-D (double-digit deficit).

The Celts' defense is the main reason they're hanging in there with only a four-point deficit.  They're holding Denver to the same 43% shooting as the Celts. Denver has penetrated more than the Celtics, but the Nuggets have taken only nine free throws. Prince and Turner (?) each have two blocks.

Sully and Turner are taking the ball to the hole, but they're the only Celts doing so. No wonder they've shot only six free throws.

Rosalie, I didn't see the story, but I've been out of the country.

I bet Jackie would be a good person to contact about getting Johnny Most in the HOF.
