Fourth quarter

  • Every time the Celtics seem to make a little progress, they give it right back.
  • Jaylen Brown is having a rough game. He has only managed 8 shots and he's hit 5 of them, but he's not playing well defensively and he just seems a step slow
  • The early 3-point barrage has slowed to a trickle. After going 7 for their first 14, they are 4 of their next 16.
  • The lead is 20 with 5:50 to go and this game is effectively over.
