Default GT: Celtics vs. Hornets - 10/2/2017

In the wake of all off-season changes, the Celtics will undoubtedly be among the most followed teams this season—especially on ISH—so a game thread would inevitably be spawned sooner or later; I might as well post it, now, while the tip-off is minutes away.

Looking forward to getting an on-court preview of the new-look Celtics.

Kyrie's individual defense is still looking as stationary as ever; otherwise, the Brad Stevens effect on him is manifest enough so far--much more off-ball activity, better sense of direction with ball movement, and more judicious shot selections (much of that being attributable to his pick-n-pop opportunities).

Did Marcus Smart change his shot? Looks way smoother

You can see he's going to do well. This is a great young squad.

Hornets’ offense is trash.

Will Monk play?

Dumbwitt Coward will forever be Kobe's bitch. And to think this cancer was once viewed as someone who could carry our franchise... such a shame.
