Paul Pierce says the Celtics should trade the No. 1 overall pick

Bad luck for the Suns or is the NBA Draft Lottery rigged

After watching video of Game 1 with the team, it's not all that surprising that Celtics head coach Brad Stevens found plenty of areas in which his team has left room for improvement prior to tonight's game.

Are the Boston Celtics willing to sacrifice Thomas' final contract year to wind up getting bounced in the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers once again? That chip-on-your-shoulder stuff doesn't come off as inspiring while losing basketball games. In fact, I think they've been encouraged to do just the opposite. A very low chance, but it's better than nothing.

Thomas wouldn't divulge the full nature of their conversations but said Fultz is excited for the possibility of being the top pick and playing in Boston. Bill Simmons recently called Thomas the greatest Celtics scorer since Bird. Keeping everyone in the fold will undoubtedly mean exceeding the cap and incurring a luxury tax bill of some significance, but as far as problems go, having to pony up for young talent is a desirable one.

"We can't panic. It's only one game", Thomas said after Boston's off-day workout Thursday. The Lakers stink. They've won 27, 21, 17, and 26 games in the last four seasons.

"It has to be a five-man effort", said Boston's Jae Crowder.

In addition, China will provide 60 billion yuan in the next three years for poverty alleviation in developing countries along the new Silk Road.

"No, not at all", Ainge said when asked if Ball's desire to play for the Lakers would affect the Celtics' decision. Game 2 is on Friday night before the series shifts to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4. On the other end, Brown scored on two of his three attempts while being defended by LeBron. He also had nine rebounds and seven assists.

Actually, "comfortable" would be underselling it. Jaylen looked fearless, yet composed.

Could a bittersweet friendship be brewing in Boston? Or him to play on the ball and I could play off the ball.

The Celtics have the best problem in the world. The years are obviously crucial, but the idea of a Redick-Covington-Jackson-Simmons-Embiid starting lineup would be pretty interesting. He isn't the type of ideal two-way player that someone like Lebron James or Kawhi Leonard represents, but he is an offensive dynamo- an ecosystem in and of himself.
