Your Morning Dump… Where, after waiting 136 days, the Celtics are back – but they have work to do

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

The Celtics didn’t cover themselves in glory defensively in the second half with their reserves in the game, as Oklahoma City stretched a double-digit lead up 18 in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against Boston’s second unit, but the starters set the tone by struggling immensely in the early going. Jayson Tatum finished 1-for-6 and never looked comfortable. Gordon Hayward hit a couple shots to even out his numbers, but he was 3-for-7.
