Boston: You probably think that you are better now


The GIST: Whether you were rooting for Tompa Tom or laughing through the pain yesterday, let’s forget about the one that got away and turn our attention to the title-contending Celtics and Bruins.

🏀Celtics: Despite 23 points from Jayson Tatum and a solid 12-point showing from rookie Payton Pritchard, the C’s couldn’t close out the Phoenix Suns yesterday, losing 100–91 and falling to 2-2 on their West Coast road trip. Fingers crossed that breakout star Jaylen Brown — who has missed two consecutive games with a knee injury — returns ASAP. 

  • The Celtics will finish up business out West tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET against Donovan “Spida” Mitchell and an impressive Utah Jazz squad. 

🏒Bruins: The B’s extended their win streak to three with a 2–1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, but they’ll have to wait to make it four straight, as the Buffalo Sabres’ COVID-19 issues postponed their series. Womp womp. 

Hopefully the pause won’t disrupt their momentum and our East Division-leading B’s will continue their dominant stretch of play. They’ll return to the ice on Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET for a tilt with the New York Rangers.
