Thought the Jazz might be bothered by a Game 7 on the road...instead they came out shooting 60%

Al Horford nearly had a triple-double with 21 points, 10 assists and 9 rebounds, exposing the Wizards off several pick and rolls with Marcin Gortat trying to defend off the picks. Washington was also all out of sorts too many times, allowing Boston to drain 19 3-pointers. Wizards can live with Isaiah Thomas making five 3's but not Jae Crowder hitting six-of-eight from behind the arc.

Wizards went from up 16-0 to start the game to losing by 12. Plenty of adjustments for Scott Brooks to make but the status of Markieff Morris moving forward looms large for the Wizards' thin frontline. Morris rolled his left ankle and left with Washington up 45-42 midway through second. Boston outscored Washington, 81-66, rest of way and Jae Crowder scored 18-of-his-24 points with Morris out.

Celtics now 19 of 38 from 3. Not losing too many games doing that.

What is J.R. Smith's defensive game plan against DeMar DeRozan? "Making him take tough shots, keeping him off the free throw line," Smith said. "Not fouling. If you can get out of the game with probably a foul or two, him shooting five free throws or less, that's pretty good." DeRozan averaged 8.3 FTAs in TOR's 1st Rd win over MIL.

J.R. Smith guarded Kyle Korver in last year's CLE-ATL playoff series. Smith held Korver to just 7.5 pts per game on 10-for-23 shooting total. Now Korver sees Smith's D on his side. "I think people don't understand like how big he is," Korver said. "He's a really solid body and obviously he's a great athlete. But he's got great body control and balance and a lot of that in defense is being able to force a guy the way that you want them to go. So to have that sturdy base to be like, ‘OK, I'm forcing you this way,' … obviously he's still a great jumper and can get up to contest. He's a great athlete. I think he's always had the tools to be a really good defender. I think he's really locked in the last couple years to mentally keep on learning the game and being challenged to guard the best players. When you do that over the course of a couple seasons you really start to learn the game and he's done a great job with that."
