A few random thoughts while I wonder if Andy Reid is studying up clock management...
- Celtics got off to a rough start against the Heat, then went on a 42-15 run to dust the visitors.
- Jaylen Brown had a season-high 31 points, which led B-Robb to ask, "Is Brown an all-star?" It's a legit question. Brown's been great.
- Brandon Carlo has been pulling a lot more weight offensively for the Bruins.
- Double Q&As from me and Conor today.
- Part II of my breakdown from the Texans loss was about the curious defensive drive after the failed fourth-down pass to Mohamed Sanu. These have been overlooked with all the concern about the offense.
- Why did the Patriots call three-straight all-out blitzes that left Jonathan Jones in off coverage, on an island when yielding a field goal would have been just fine down 14-3?
- I don't get it. The Texans were obviously blocking much better, and Watson was killing you with key throws. They were desperation-type calls when it wasn't desperation time yet. Once the Texans scored, then the game was almost over. Seemed to be a mistake to me.
