Your Morning Dump... Where it's time for first quarter grades

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

The best first quarter they’ve put together, ironically, might be to the season as a whole. Nearing the quarter pole of the year, the Celtics sit at 14-5 despite the fact that Gordon Hayward — maybe their most consistent player early in the season — has missed the last 11 games due to a left hand fracture.

Boston is unlikely to maintain this 60-win pace, but a mid-50 win total seems feasible with decent health.
