The Celtics beat the Bucks - and will beat the Bucks again. And again. And again.

What a night Wednesday was.  Before we look at the high points of the game let's just get this right out of the way.  Straight up.  My sources suck:


I think Grant Williams guarded Giannis on one possession for the entire game.  This type of performance is unacceptable and it will not be tolerated.  SO I have cut ties with my former "source" and I am now looking for someone new.  Interested?  Simply message me or tweet any Celtics related prediction at me.  It's that simple.  As simple as guarding Giannis...

Marcus Smart and Semi Ojele really did make it look easy didn't they?  They shut down the MVP and they really didn't need much help from other teammates to do it.  They did it so well that I really can't see how it changes at all later in the season.  Giannis can't score on these guys consistently.  Not.  Gonna.  Happen.  And therefore, Milwaukee cannot beat the Celtics in a 7 game series.  Our D is one reason why, but there were plenty of other reasons also being showcased on Weds night.

#1 Jayson Tatum played like the top 5 NBA player that he will soon become.  He attacked the basket time and time again.  In the first half he didn't finish.  But he KEPT ATTACKING.  This is the way he needs to play.  As he continues to get to the hoop, he will eventually learn how to finish through contact.  The guy is 21 years old and he is not that thick of frame.  It's gonna take time, and unfortunately he wasted a whole year last season.  It's obvious that he has a new aggressive attitude this year.  For the game, Tatum was 1-7 on shots less than 5 feet from the basket.  The effort and determined mindset that it takes to continue to drive to the hoop paid off in other ways though. #confidence #toughness #energy


#2 Marcus Smart was hitting threes like a confident Steph Curry clone.  Is Marcus now everybody's favorite player?  It really should be unanimous.

#3 Gordon Hayward looked like a guy who is actually good at basketball.  Welcome to Boston, Gordon!

#4 Rob Williams showed us who our starting center is going to be come playoff time.  It is so nice to finally have an intimidator waiting for guys in the lane.  Im not sure if intimidator is a word but if it isnt maybe it should just be Rob Williams' new nickname.  This dude sends shots into the cheap seats!  Ask Anthony Davis - he knows!!!
