-PHILLY OR BOSTON THE FUTURE IN EAST?
WHAT WE LEARNED
WARRIORS LOSE TO BOSTON ---FINALS PREVIEW? 92-88
-CURRY SAYS HE HEARS BOSTON IS NICE IN JUNE
"It's very, very likely, right?" Curry said. "They're playing the best right now in the East and obviously until they beat Cleveland, who's done it three years in a row -- so we'll see, but I hear the weather is great here in June."
I'm not sure even Boston's coaches and front-office folks realized how huge this team is on the wing until they saw everyone play together in preseason. Jaylen Brown is a 6-foot-7 starting 2-guard with a 7-foot wingspan. That is obscene. When the Celtics have any three of Brown, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, and Marcus Smart on the floor (and, hell, throw in Semi Ojeleye) with Al Horford at center, they can switch seamlessly across four positions.
WARRIORS NOT HAPPY W CALLS LATE
IRVING: He got to the free throw line a lot. That was it. He didn't make no shots," Draymond Green said after the game. "He got to the free throw line. Whether they were fouls or not is another discussion." (4-16 FG, 7-7 FTS IN 4TH)
KYRIE MADE RIGHT CHOICE
-BOSTON 19-0 RUN
-WARRIORS LOST 17 POINT LEAD
FT MADE: 33-12 BOSTON
FG % BOSTON 32.9 / GS 40.2
HORFORD 7-11 / REST: 19-72
CURRY/THOMPSON 8-32 / 5-20
BOSTON 18-5 2ND CHANCE
BREAK 20-13 WARRIORS (ONLY 6 IN 2ND HALF)
BARNETT TROLLS LONZO BALL'S SHOOTING
WORSE THAN YOU THINK
PER DREW SHILLER:
Draymond Green tonight vs Celtics: - Contested 16 shots (was averaging 8.4) - Contested 8 3-pointers (was averaging 3) - 5 loose balls recovered (had 11 combined in first 14 games)

Lexy Panterra Wants Giancarlo Stanton In L.A. ... Dodgers' Secret Weapon? 1 11/16/2017 8:57 AM PST L.A. fans might just have an ace in the hole to get Giancarlo Stanton in Dodger Blue -- his rumored GF, singer Lexy Panterra. There are big-time rumors that the Dodgers are eyeing Stanton via trade, and when we got Panterra out at Warwick we asked her what she thought of the idea of the slugger in Tinseltown. "I think that'd be a great idea. He'd be closer!!!" Remember, it was just last week Panterra performed at Stanton's surprise B-day party at Hyde -- and just a couple of months ago the duo did a super sexy damn-near-naked music video together. So it's clear what the Dodgers need to do to get

420: WARRIORS COUNTDOWN TO TIP OFF
WARRIORS VS. CELTICS --
-BEST WARRIORS TEAM YET?
-CELTICS OR WARRIORS TONIGHT?
CELTICS REALLY GOOD RIGHT NOW
-KERR SAID CELTICS ARE THE FUTURE
"It sure looks like Boston is the team of the future in the East, with the assets that they still have and their young talent and their coaching, and Kyrie [Irving] is amazing," Kerr said after practice Tuesday. "That looks like a team that is going to be at the top of the East for a long time to come. Whether their time is now or the future, that's to be determined, but they sure look like they want it to be right now."
The Celtics have an average age of 24.7 years old, nearly two full years lower than the league average of 26.6. The starting lineup they've been using recently of Irving, Brown, Tatum, Marcus Morris and Al Horford, has an average age of 24.8. Compare that to the Cleveland Cavaliers, expected to be the Celtics' main competition in the Eastern Conference, whose average age is 29.9 years old.
OFFENSE VS DEFENSE:
Coming into this game, the Warriors are miles ahead of every other team in the league with an offensive rating of 116.2 and beating opponents by an average of 14.4 points per game. They are easily the cream of the crop on the offensive side of the ball.Meanwhile, the Celtics have been the second best team in terms of point differential, winning their games by a margin of 7.8 points per game. However instead of getting it done on offense, they have been a juggernaut defensively, routinely holding opponents to under 100 points. Their defensive rating of 95.8 leads the league.
COULD BOSTON BEAT CLEVELAND?
KYRIE MADE THE RIGHT MOVE
-STEVENS IS SMART
CELTICS DEFENSE VS WARRIORS OFFENSE
PACE- The Warriors are 5th in pace at 104.37 while Boston is 22nd at 98.9

The 2018 veteran QB market could include:
* Kirk Cousins
* Tyrod Taylor
* Alex Smith (trade?)
* Sam Bradford
* Case Keenum
* Josh McCown
* Mike Glennon
* Blake Bortles
-KYLE HAS TO START JIMMY RIGHT? -
*I'M GLAD THEY WON, BUT I'M OVER IT , EVERY MOVE HAS BEEN LOOK TO THE FUTRE AND THIS IS THE NEXT ONE.
HOW MANY DO 49ERS HAVE?:
Interesting discussion on the "MTS" podcast. Championship teams have 8-10 "blue" players (Pro Bowl-caliber) on their rosters. @Jaguars might have 8 "blues" on defense alone. No.97, No.93, No.99, No.50, No.20 & No.21.. No.91 & No.44 could also grade as "blues"
-MAYBE GARAPOLLO - QB CONTROVERCY?
-STALEY TOO OLD WHEN IT WILL MATTER
THE ISSUE: CB, LONG TERM LT, WRS (NONE) CB NONE....MOST IMPORTANT POSITIONS:
1. QB - UNKNOWN
2. LT - TOO OLD
3. CB - NONE --MAYBE WORST GROUP IN NFL
4. WR-NONE -MAYBE WORST GROUP IN NFL
5. INTERIOR OL --MAYBE WORST GROUP IN NFL
6. PASS RUSHERS? BIG NEED.
