The Celtics lost a barnburner to the Houston Rockets on Saturday night. Boston and Houston split their season series with both games decided by one possession.
It was Boston’s first loss since the all-star break after a 4–0 start. The Celtics’ four reserves outscored the five starters, 63–57. Marcus Morris led the second unit with 21 points and Greg Munroe had 18 in his finest game as a Celtic, plus six rebounds and two blocks.
Those two bench players, plus Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier, look like the playoff rotation for the Celtics, who have been playing more rookies throughout the season, guys like Daniel Theis and Semi Ojeleye, but will certainly tighten things up come playoff time.
Boston picked up a game on Toronto in the division but remains two games back and three in the loss column. Those teams will play twice more at the end of this month and the start of next and it feels like home court advantage will be the difference if they were to meet in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Chicago snapped a five-game losing streak with an eight-point win over the Mavericks this weekend. Chicago continues to inch closer toward going over on its win total from the preseason. The Bulls need two more wins.
Of course, they were 18–28 on the 20th of January and it looked like it would be just a matter of a couple weeks before Chicago went over 22.5.
But the Bulls have won only three times since then, losing 13 and sliding down in the standings or shooting up the lottery ranks, depending on how you’d like to look at it.
Kris Dunn is back and producing again; Zach LaVine has managed to stay healthy and look good in the starting lineup; Bobby Portis is a powerful sixth man off the bench.
But Lauri Markkanen has had a great rookie season. Of course, Ben Simmons’ and Donovan Mitchell’s years have been better — much better — but Markkanen will get a top-5 ROY finish, which is a great success considering a lot were skeptical about his NBA potential.
