Boston keeps coming up with impressive wins while desperately short-handed. The Celtics beat the Thunder at home earlier this week and then won in Portland the other night against one of the hottest teams in the NBA.
This is despite missing Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart. Brown is still struggling with his concussion; Smart may not be ready for the start of the playoffs after thumb surgery; and the big news is that Irving will undergo knee surgery this weekend.
The Celtics have stayed quiet about Irving’s timetable, saying that they won’t have an idea until after his procedure, which is being described as “noninvasive.”
But the playoffs begin in three weeks so it sounds like he will be very questionable for the start of the playoffs, at best. Boston has a strong grasp on the #2 seed for now but that could mean a first round matchup against anyone from the Bucks to the Heat to the Wizards or Pacers. No first round matchup will be easy without Irving.
So while the Celtics continue to win with lesser players because of the brilliance of Brad Stevens, the real key in these final three weeks is simply holding onto the 2-seed and getting healthy.
Stephon Clark protesters delayed the start of Sacramento’s game on Thursday night against the Hawks by close to 15 minutes. They jammed the entrance to the Kings’ arena and fans were still filing in as the game began.
Sacramento won that game in a tank-off. It was the Kings’ third win in five games. It has passed the Mavericks and Nets in the standings, giving up some draft positioning in the process.
Buddy Hield has scored 21 points per in his last five games. He’s made 17 threes in 35 attempts in those last five. His scoring has slowly gone up each month after averaging just 10 points per game in October. He and DeAaron Fox are starting to look like a decent backcourt of the future.
So Sacramento will likely go after a forward in the draft this summer. Zach Randolph and Vince Carter are old and on their way out. Willie Cauley-Stein has looked good, averaging 12 and 7 this season. There will be talented wings available where Sacramento is projected to be picking and management will be all over it.
