What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Jay King @ByJayKing
Jayson Tatum said winning MVP was not a goal of his coming into the season. His goal is to “get back to the finals and not have that feeling again.”
Said it would be a dream come true if he wins it, but he didn’t say one time this summer that he wants to do so. – 11:04 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
Tatum:
I was extremely proud with how we responded, how we competed and figured it out. – 11:03 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Jayson Tatum laughed when asked about his technical foul for clapping after he had just missed a layup and then fouled an opponent.
“Anybody in the arena, anybody watching the game, could have seen I was frustrated with myself.” – 11:02 PM
Boston Celtics @celtics
Payton Pritchard initiated our comeback, and then Marcus Smart finished it. nba.com/celtics/news/g…11:00 PM

Marcus Smart on Pritchard and White’s defense: “Everything, it gives you the energy you need. You see those guys, you’re happy for them, it gives you that adrenaline…The mud starts to loosen a bit and then you get one foot out the mud.” – 10:56 PM

Jaylen Brown was alarmed #nets owner Joe Tsai didn’t say they’re working toward getting Kyrie Irving back on the court, but that he has more work to do. Brown said Tsai, Nike and business owners have more work to do, and that he’s trying to protect Irving’s legal rights as VP. – 10:44 PM

Jaylen Brown on changing the momentum tonight:
Once we got the crowd in the game, we started guarding our yard a little better – 10:41 PM

Brown: “We got a great performance from our point guard, Marcus Smart.” – 10:40 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Jaylen Brown said he had a knee contusion in the game before last and then the game before that he had a slight right ankle sprain, so that’s why he sat out the second night of a back-to-back. – 10:40 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
Jaylen Brown on missing the game the other day:
Had a little knee contusion…they advised me to sit out during a back to back – 10:40 PM

Mark Daigneault quote of the year:
“(Poku) had Horford tonight, which, it’s a great contrast. We obviously had Horford when Poku was a rookie. If you told me that two years later Poku would be playing 37 minutes and guarding Horford … I would’ve checked to do a sobriety test.” – 10:22 PM

Jayson Tatum’s soft technical foul call on Monday night drew sharp reactions from several players around the league including Kevin Durant masslive.com/celtics/2022/1…10:22 PM

Joe Mazzulla on Marcus Smart: “We’re a reflection of him and his leadership.” – 10:12 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Joe Mazzulla said he put Payton Pritchard in early in the third quarter because he knows what to expect from Pritchard every time he steps on the court, and the Celtics needed a spark. – 10:11 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Every close OKC loss, I wonder if it would’ve been a win with Chet Holmgren. – 10:11 PM
Boston Celtics @celtics
Coach Mazzulla: “I thought our bench did a great job of bringing the energy and picking us up.” – 10:11 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Mazzulla on Payton Pritchard sub: “I felt like we needed a lift.” – 10:10 PM

Nobody on the bench played more than 19 mins
Could you tell Daigneault really wanted this win for his guys? – 10:09 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Impressive showing by the young OKC core.
Second night of a road back to back, playing a contender, led most the game, just lost at the end due to TOs & clutch Celtics buckets.
SGA ice cold in crunch time despite the loss. Scored 10 in the final 5 minutes to give OKC a shot. – 10:05 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
OKC Blue get the win over Ignite 104-88.
•Scoot Henderson finished with 26 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds, shooting 2-for-3 from 3, 10-for-16 overall.

Luka Doncic – 23
Jayson Tatum – 20
Joel Embiid – 19
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander – 19 – 10:03 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Good game for OKC to learn from. Several little things can add up in a game like this and put you on the wrong side of the scoreboard. Giving Pritchard a 5-0 spurt at the end of the 3rd, Giddey inbounding off the backboard, etc. Can’t control everything, can control those things. – 10:03 PM
Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto

Great effort from OKC in Boston, and a lot to learn from. Handling the increased physicality and turnovers were the main second half issues, as OKC lost a double-digit lead.

Seven straight wins for the Celtics after they rally for a gritty win 126-122 win against OKC. Boston’s point guards (Payton Pritchard, Derrick White, Marcus Smart) responsible for the comeback. – 9:57 PM

Man that OKC team gave the Celtics a spirited battle tonight. I can’t believe how good SGA is now. Night after night he’s doing it. Boston threw like 5 different defenders at him including some legit studs and some doubles and he still went 13 for 26 pretty easily. – 9:56 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
White exclamation point in transition from Smart.
#Celtics will win their 7th straight. – 9:55 PM

It took about 30-35 minutes of gametime, but the Celtics picked up the energy and the defense and they should escape with a seventh straight win here. – 9:53 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Back-to-back 37-point games for SGA on this back-to-back in New York and Boston. Big time stuff. – 9:52 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
The Thunder have enough talent to try to compete, but their execution on both ends is so bad. They are losing on the little elementary basics, not their shot making or skill. – 9:52 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Marcus Smart giveth.
Marcus Smart taketh away.
That was a silly play. – 9:51 PM
Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander already has 5 35-point games this season after having 4 in his first 4 seasons combined.
The only player with more 35-point games than SGA this season is Luka Doncic (7). – 9:51 PM

Probably the best half of the season for Derrick White. – 9:48 PM

What a play by SGA. Celtics knock down back-to-back threes and he drives and gets fouled for a 3-point play.
Thunder trails by three with a minute left. – 9:48 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
White looked like he iced it and SGA answers with 3 inside. He has 35. 121-118. – 9:48 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Marcus Smart makes Marcus Smart plays. – 9:47 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Can’t tell if Tatum got stripped there or got the ball out. Either way, it landed in Smart’s hands for another 3 to break the tie. 86 seconds to play. 118-115 #Celtics9:47 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Horford, always looking for an extra pass, barely avoids and up-and-down, gets downhill and finds Smart for a go-ahead 3.
#Celtics 115-112. – 9:45 PM

Nah man, Marcus Smart getting preferential treatment from the refs over SGA is sick lol – 9:39 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Young teams typically struggle to close games, especially in these environments in Boston, and especially after taking a great counterpunch by Boston. Let’s see what OKC can do here. Big time learning experience no matter how it ends. – 9:38 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Down 15 late in the 3rd, the Celtics had an 11% win probability.
Tied now 107-107 with 5:34 left.
Boston now a 61% chance to win. – 9:37 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Thunder has looked a bit rattled in the fourth. Celtics, which trailed by as many as 15, have tied the game 107-107 with 5:34 left.
Interested to see how the Thunder responds, especially with this crowd. – 9:37 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
The Celtics haven’t needed their defense to carry them too often this season. But after their start tonight (and while shooting 8 for 35 from the 3-point arc so far), they needed to turn it up on that end. They haven’t stopped turning the Thunder over since. – 9:36 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Took them a little bit to figure out but Celtics have realized they don’t need to/shouldn’t rely on 3-ball tonight against a soft Thunder defense. – 9:35 PM

If OKC can avoid turning it over every other play, they’ll win. They continue to get good looks every trip without a turnover. – 9:30 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Who knows if the Celtics can get stops consistently enough to win tonight, but Payton Pritchard and Derrick White completely slipped this game with their defensive pressure in the last 15 minutes. – 9:29 PM

The Boston crowd is none too pleased with this officiating crew. – 9:28 PM

Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Pritchard needed an outlet there in transition. Big challenge win for the Thunder. – 9:25 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Mark Daigneault wins the challenge, OKC ball. But that’s a gamble to use it just for possession. No foul, no free throws. – 9:24 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Not a bad spot for a timeout for OKC, as they’ve gotten really ragged. But not sure I would have used a challenge here. – 9:23 PM

The Celtics defense has made so many mistakes guarding OKC’s cuts out on the weak side, targeting Jaylen Brown several times when he had the low man position on the baseline. Poku is jumping over Grant for boards and OKC’s length driving the lane has been a problem. – 8:41 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
That was the best half of Jalen Williams’ young career, highlighted by a pretty bounce pass to a cutting Josh Giddey for a layup.

Mark Daigneault on Chet Holmgren no longer wearing a boot during workouts:
“His recovery is not behind or ahead from what’s normal. It’s going really well, and you’re gonna see him do more and more as time goes on. He’s doing a great job with it.” – 6:55 PM

❝Stay composed, you can’t let a team dictate what you do on either end of the floor.❞

Mark Daigneault on Tre Mann’s back soreness: “It’s kinda a tricky area… Any movement can kinda trigger it. He’s getting intensive treatment and we’ll get him back as soon as we can.” – 6:47 PM
Boston Celtics @celtics
Jayson Tatum is right in the middle of the MVP conversation, and his coach wouldn’t have it any other way. nba.com/celtics/news/p…6:47 PM

Mark Daigneault on Chet Holmgren removing his boot:
“His recovery is not behind or ahead of what’s normal. It’s going very well. You’re going to see him do more and more as time goes on. He’s doing a great job of it… He should be really proud the way he’s (rehabbing) so far.” – 6:38 PM

Daigneault on Mazzulla: “I’ve been impressed from a distance at how (Celtics) have remained steady … he doesn’t seem to be overcoaching.” – 6:13 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Thunder has been the best third-quarter team in the NBA. Any explanation?
“Halftime speeches,” Mark Daigneault says without missing a beat. – 6:12 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Mark Daigneault was asked why the Thunder are the best third quarter team in the NBA:
“Halftime speeches.” – 6:11 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Daigneault on Jeremiah Robinson-Earl: “(Knicks) had their fives on him and we moved him to the perimeter … (he) connects the offense … and defensively he was huge last night.” – 6:09 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Busy day today! Here in the Paycom Center for Scoot Henderson And G-League Ignite taking on the OKC Blue, and of course The Thunder take on the C’s at 6:30. Let’s have a day! pic.twitter.com/HTS1gRM9Kj6:08 PM

It’s home for me. It’s great to share this experience with people I love. – 6:07 PM

Chris Forsberg @ChrisForsberg_
Joe Mazzulla on Rob Williams: “He’s doing good. He’s in great spirits, mentally. No timetable has changed as far as where he’s at. He’s doing a great job with his rehab. He’s on the court, doing small stuff. Great to see him out there and progressing well.” – 6:02 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
From earlier: Some notes on NYK’s defensive slide (coincides w/Mitchell Robinson’s injury); why, in my opinion, Sunday’s loss increases the scrutiny on Tom Thibodeau & why NYK had more insight than most teams on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander ahead of 2018 Draft: sny.tv/articles/tempe…5:53 PM
Boston Celtics @celtics
Joe Mazzulla says part of what’s gone into Jayson Tatum’s ascension this season is that he, along with the rest of the team, navigated that Finals run last season and learned from it as well as the loss to Golden State. – 5:50 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
No timetable to change for Robert Williams per coach Mazzulla – 5:49 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Malcolm Brogdon is doing “pretty well” physically, according to Joe Mazzulla. He did a little more today as far as on-court work. – 5:49 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
Mazzulla on Brogdon:
Just a day to day thing, just making sure he’s comfortable. Hopefully he’ll be back as soon as possible. – 5:49 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
Mazzulla on Tatum MVP narrative:
Right now he’s committed on both ends of the floor…expanding his game has made him a better player. – 5:47 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
Mazzulla confirms Brogdon is the only guy besides Gallo and Rob out tonight against the Thunder – 5:46 PM

Casey said Cunningham’s absence is a “growth” opportunity for Hayes and Ivey. “It’s unfortunate, because I thought Cade was having a big-time start. The Boston game is when it really hit. But for those two guys, it’s an opportunity to take the reins.” – 5:24 PM
