1. As we’ve come to expect over the years, Boston is somehow better when they are down a couple of key players. The Celtics got Enes Kanter back, but Marcus Smart sat this game out, continuing the “get one back, lose one” trend. Kemba Walker sat out a second game in a row as well. Boston opened the game without a traditional point guard (Javonte Green got his first career start) and played a lot of funky lineups throughout against a very small Atlanta team. But the Celtics got the win.
