I have no idea how the rest of the series will go, but I just about injured myself enjoying this Marcus Smart play last night:

Obviously, getting to the Finals would be some small consolation for not getting a #2/ 3 pick last night.

So did the 18,000 + in the Garden last night. Once the Celtics started their run in the 3rd quarter, the place went crazy. It was not only loud but also the noise was sustained almost continuously. One of these nights I'm going to see if I can drag you down from Dover for a game.

It was different during the ML Carr regime, when the biggest hubbub in the building was caused by the presence of Seiji Ozawa.

Waving towels, surely. Perhaps in the direction of Ufez's mess. Someone needs to clean it up before the 2019 Draft; I'm assuming the Kings and Grizz picks will improve them just enough to knock the protections off the picks they owe Danny Ainge next year.

Or maybe Valde Divac has finally figured it out. That could be it too.

There's a place in Philly fandom for someone with Ufez' skills.

And no better time to hop on the bandwagon, with the Eagles now champs, Flyers back in the playoffs, Sixers rising, and Phillies a half game out of first place.
