Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Celtics Blog.

Very excited
About the Johnny “The Wad” Holmes era beginning. Utah has an interesting lineup also.

Chris is the better Johnson! I miss that guys hustle. JaJuan on the other hand was one of the few bad picks by Danny.

they’re actually in a pro gym
last year was what appeared to be a high school gym.
More cameras this year.

It was the Magic practice facility I believe. This is the Jazz’s arena.
by GreenCeltics on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:12 PM

Exum looks pretty chubby and out of shape, no?
by Stokes0 on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:21 PM

yeah
Seems out of gas already.

by craziness@analltimehigh on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:21 PM

Smart playing aggressive and confident
Not perfect ball but he looks like the best player on the court tonight.

by NYDan on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:28 PM

And Exum still looks like a bust
by Ghu55 on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:29 PM

Plus…we already know Young can shoot from his D-League exploits
I’m not really sure what Exum can do at an NBA level. He doesn’t even seem to be in good shape…

by Ghu55 on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:35 PM


Anybody watching NBATV?
The Jazz announcer just said Exum is just a “mouth-breather” and that makes him look fatigued when he’s really not.
Yep, the science checks out.

by Stokes0 on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:43 PM

Nice to see our offense clicking in the second period.
Not.

by mmmmm on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:57 PM

clicking like the sound of an empty revolver chamber
by spinetingler on Jul 6, 2015 | 9:57 PM

[Smart] was getting competitive with Exum
by Terrier Green on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:07 PM

Yeah, thought so too.
Exum, Hood and Johnson look very good. Exum has a little baby and summer fat but he’s young, it’ll go away.

by borikua79 on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:13 PM


Man, these announcers are brutally Jazz biased
Exum took a horrible three and they were like “it looked good”
Give me a break

by Ghu55 on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:15 PM

Yeah both are Utah tv/radio announcers I believe. At least the bias will go away after this game as we only play the Jazz once.
Unfortunately both are very uninformed. The NBATV Orlando announcers are much better IMO.

by GreenCeltics on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:17 PM

Couldn’t agree with you more
They are so uninformed on the Celtics players

by Ghu55 on Jul 6, 2015 | 11:00 PM

In fairness, we are the last people on the planet to be complaining about homerism from basketball announcers.
No Tommy, don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about

by Terrier Green on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:18 PM

on the whole, utah guys aren’t bad. Harpring is actually solid, although he’s not here for summer league.
by PickNRoll3332 on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:23 PM


Motum driving and finishing…lol
he might have jumped at least 2 inches off the floor.

by P stoff on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:16 PM

Is this on tv? How are you all watching it?
by V-Mart Shopper on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:16 PM

via Russia and a strong anti-virus program
by spinetingler on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:18 PM

The Mouth Breather killing it,
by omitasub on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:21 PM

Pretty solid nickname I’d say
by Stokes0 on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:22 PM

Nice coverage… how long you gonna interview the guy ..the whole 4th quarter?
by P stoff on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:44 PM

Did Burks just say “[Getting to the playoffs] would be great for the CITY of Utah”?
by Terrier Green on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:45 PM

Have you been to Utah? There’s just the one city..
The rest is purgatory.

by Stokes0 on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:46 PM


Cooley having a nice game for Utah
Tough player.

by NYDan on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:51 PM

Cooley is too big
by eddiefabricio.jacome on Jul 6, 2015 | 10:54 PM

I don’t want to even say that I wanted Hood when we took Young Because no one will believe me and no one will believe I would be saying anything if Hood wasn’t playing well. But I’ll say it anyway, I wanted Hood. I saw a lot more from him at Duke and like him a lot. I thought he was a safe pick who could atleast be a solid 3 and D guy with upside for more. Hood would be nice to have. Hood>>>Young. I still have hope for Young. It’s one summer league game. But show me something!!!
by Bbdub34 on Jul 6, 2015 | 11:09 PM

that game was horrible…
and one thing was clear again……WHERE IS OUR REBOUNDING CENTER?
OMG JUST GET A CENTER……JUST GET SOME GUY TO STAND IN THE MIDDLE…..for crying out loud…..REBOUNDS…BLOCKS…missing..please Ainge….

by Panathinaikos13 on Jul 6, 2015 | 11:09 PM

Overall encouraged by this game
The refs handed this one to Utah. It become increasingly clear, then just flat out obvious in the 4th.

by Andinero1 on Jul 6, 2015 | 11:31 PM

Still in need of a legit center
When Jack Cooley dominated the boards against you…
