A 1-1 exhibition record seems appropriate given the inconsistency of the Celtics' start, but the trendlines are there for an incredibly successful season. Justin and Jon looked at the end of the Celtics bench's role in closing out both games and the play of Guershon Yabusele, Robert Williams, and the rest of the Yabu Tang Clan. Then the point guards came into focus from Terry Rozier's white hot start to Kyrie Irving's attempts to find his form following injury. While Gordon Hayward had a promising chase down block, he, Kyrie, and the rest of his teammates seeking flow to their games faced significant roadblocks in the form of NBA officials points of emphasis. The points of emphasis are meant to reduce physical play, but all they seem to do is make a view physically ill from the constant stoppages of play. Wrapping up, Jon and Justin looked at the start of the season and gave some brief predictions on the ability for the C's to get off to a good start.
