A win would be awesome here.  But I think we're still in the learning curve for Nurse with this small ball stuff, and will likely be taking some hits with some weird lineup decisions for a while and could drop this one if Boston is firing on all cylinders - especially if Leonard is still getting his legs under him (which I expect to continue for a while).  So I don't really know what to expect tonight.  Sure will be interesting though!

I smell a big L coming. If we play the way we played against Cavs...it will be a long night.

If we win this one it'll be deemed too early to judge. If we lose they'll say Boston is now our Father. Short of getting to the finals it will never shut anyone up.

Yeah, I predict a double digit loss here. This team isn't there yet imo. We are at home though so who knows

Neither team is playing well now, so it's a nearly irrelevant game. Should be a fun game still.

I don't think we'll be losing many games by double digits this season ...

Kyrie is going to look to step on our throats after his disappointing debut. Lowry+ fvv will need to play excellent defense or they'll foul out by the end of the 3rd

We’ll probably see Ibaka in the starting lineup to matchup against Horford, and Ibaka tends to play well against him. I wonder if Siakam or OG will start at PF since the Celtics go small to begin games.

I agree this game will almost be like a preseason one with both teams still figuring out their rotations, schemes, and building chemistry.

Will Nick Nurse use the same starters tonight? "Probably not."

My bet: Lowry, Green, Leonard, Anunoby, Ibaka.

I would stick with Siakam over OG.

He is a HUGE difference maker.
