It's going to go against Paul George, so the shot clock comes off.
3 seconds on the clock.
The Celtics, in the bonus, and Brad Wanamaker will shoot to Doc Rivers.

Williams McGruder, George, Harold and Green.
Catch and shoot from George.
That's a three point effort in the air ball, and the crowd has a little bit of fun with that.
You're winning three.
Nothing right now. Okay.
The lightning are catching up to us.
That was out of nowhere.
Kemel Walker from downtown and the Celtics are back on top.

Now here's Campbell Walker and Paul George nearly coming up with the steal.
Now it's back with Walker.
The Clippers wanted backcourt.
We're not gonna get it now.

Hope you're having a good Thursday night.
Great match up here.
George nearly came out with the steel.
But yeah, that was clearly off of George in the back court before Walker recovered it.
A referee's got that right.
Not to call it a backcourt violation.
Wanna make rolling down from the near side, He gets it in to Kemba Walker.
Walker nearly lost the dribble.
He picks it back up five seconds on the shot clock.
He's gonna take another three and that's no good.
It goes over the backboard.
Nearly got stuck up.
There eventually falls down.
It's out of bounds and Clippers basketball.
You're watching your thunder right now.
Yeah, that's like the only other game in the league right now, isn't it? There's like two games going on this game in the Thunder game.
All the other teams are already at their All Star break with All Star weekend getting underway tomorrow night.
Here is Paul George gonna take it to the lane, Pass off to Harold.
Couldn't get clean control.
The Venice cancer will stay clippers basketball with 12 seconds remaining on the shot clock.
And these two teams selling the Clippers nearly have identical records.
I can't remember the exact records.
I think the Clippers have one more loss, but also one more game played.
They each have the same amount of winds.
This will be handed back to Lou Williams.
Williams to the lane was Harold and the foul called.
It's gonna be on the floor.
So no shooting foul here or no, the yeah, they will save his shooting fell. My apologies.
So yeah, Lou Williams heading to the line.
That's interesting, because I thought that was a Passover to Montrose, Harold, but I guess not.
So he's ending the line to shoot, too Lou Williams this season and 51 games, averaging 19.
2 points and 41% shooting.
The first free throw is good and the upcoming MBA schedule.
Well, tomorrow night we got the NBL, then the rising Randy Rising Stars game at 9 p.
Then on Saturday, the Emmy All Star media days and practice gets underway at 10:30 a.m.
Then on Saturday, it's an NBA All Star.
Saturday night at 8 p.
Then on Sunday, it's the actual All Star game, also at eight o'clock, and now Walker shows the three gets it, have the bucket and 14 point play opportunity for Kember. the magician.
Oh, man, the catch and shoot foul on MacGruder and Walker's son out still gets it the fall.
He is smooth from behind.
New York. I'll tell you that much.
Thank you, Adam, for joining the broadcast.
Glad to have you here.
So Walker, with a chance to put the Celtics back in the lead pending the free throw here.
Ah, four point play opportunity.
By the way, congratulations to Kevin Garnett was announced earlier, before the skin got underway that his jersey will be retired. Well deserved.
I think there's too many too many at numbers retired for the Celtics.
But I'm not even kidding.
I think, uh, Kevin Garnett is deserving of having is having his jersey number retired now.
Brad Wanamaker driving the finger roll in.
It's in for two.
The Celtics on a roll there, up by 39 minutes to go here in the first half, Paul George, right wing, has at the baseline, guarded by his candor.
Step back and he hits it.
That's one way to quiet.
Thea Celtics mo mentum.
Now Kemba Walker has it for Boston Walker taking off, accelerating towards the who plays it off the glass it in, Count the bucket again, another foul.
And now he has another opportunity at the line, this time for the traditional three point play.
Oh man! And his cancer was just a body right there to set the pick.
And Kemba Walker, you got slapped across the face there.
He already has 11 points on the night, three of seven shooting.
He also has two rebounds, the free Throne no good, and the former Celtic Marcus Morris grabs the rebound.
He was traded at the trade deadline to L. A.
This past back to Harold Marcus Morris getting out of the misery of being a New York Knick and goes to a really good team and the Clippers.
And how about that corner three from Lou Lou Williams? Highly contested shot at that, We're all knotted up.
At 43 the Clippers continue to respond whenever the Celtics seemed to get something going.
Great pass inside by Walker.
Cantor, the right handed layup off the glass and then, and the Celtics respond at the other end of the floor.
Now it's a corner, three for the Clippers in and out there on the effort from Landry Shim.
It Now here's come a walker behind the back driving the lamp.
But it has cancer is there for the offensive rebound.
Lays it back in for the bucket, the seas up by four.
So the offensive rebound since I've gone on since the end of the near the end of the first quarter has been huge, a huge factor and his cancer in particular.
Mantra as Harold is gonna take it strong and the foul called.
He will head to the free throw line, so we got 7 32 to go in the second quarter.
Have everyone here being a part of the broadcasts mantra as Harold, eight points to of two from the field.
One rebound so far.
You can get into double digits if he makes both free throws and he gets the 1st 1 to go.
And now the Celtics will make a substitution so Campbell Walker will get a break.
Incomes Marcus Smart Walker with a great start to this game, And now here comes the second free throw attempt from Harold, and he delivers, so it's back to a two point Celtics lead.

We'll go out of bounds.
Sham it, looking for mantra as Harold.
But they were on the same page there, and it's a turnover from L.
A Boston basketball.
Now it's Brad Wanamaker.

Live right here on SportsCastr.
All right, Welcome back to the broadcast.
Everybody glad to have you here as it is the halftime report here on SportsCastr.
The Celtics lead the Clippers by two points.
There's been plenty of ties throughout the first half.
Plenty of lead changes as well.
Really too good to really good teams going at it tonight.
I got here for the tail end of the first quarter.
I was commentating my high school girls basketball game.
So I I'll be honest with you.
I didn't see pretty much almost all of the first quarter.
But from what I've seen so far, you know, it seems like you know, the Celtics they've got on Cem many runs and you know, uh, Tatum and walk or really leading the way for the Celtics.
But the Clippers have always found a way to respond.
You got to give them credit in the first half tonight.
Jason Tatum with 15 points, five of eight shooting, three of five from three, Kemba Walker with 13 points off his own.
But you know, for ah, team like the Clippers that have so much talent, the Celtics, you know, they gotta play their best basketball and I thought they played pretty well pretty darn well in that first quarter, Marcus Smart had a steel in the early stages of the first quarter.
Gonna dunk on the other end.
But then Kawai Leonard also had a steel in the middle of that first quarter and just blew right by Camel Walker and flushed it down.
It's really back and forth.
Superstar action on both ends of the floor.
Jason Tatum hot from three as well as he usually is you.
He will be an All Star for the first time in his career this weekend.
And, yeah, Leonard, you know, he hit some threes for the Clippers as well.
Definitely leading the way for this L A team Kaleil undergo is hot.
Mantra is Harold had a decent first half.
A swell the score after 24 minutes of place.
And let's get you caught up on the other game going on in the league.
The Oklahoma City thunder taking on the New Orleans Pelicans down Louisiana, all eyes on Zion or early on the first court.
He missed his own shot but got his own rebound and flushed it down and then a few minutes later, laying it in for two Ah, hot start Furs, Ion And then also getting in on the action is Jackson out of North Carolina and then Zion Williamson getting contact as well at the end.
One on the Foul by Steven Adams.
But the thunder didn't go away.
They kept it really close.
A cz well and, ah, but Zion, with a ferocious block in the early stages of quarter number two.
My goodness, you gotta see it to believe it, Zion Williams continues.
Williamson continues to impress and later on with the flush on the l A.
Currently the second quarter in that one.
New Orleans leads Oklahoma City 58 to 53 a close one.
All the other teams around the league, they're all star Break is underway.
These were the only two games in the n B a.
Tonight the rest of ah, and then after tonight, you know it will be all star break for everybody as the festivities get underway tomorrow.
And I said it earlier, but for those of you weren't shooting at the time, I will be on definitely for the Rising Stars game tomorrow night at 9 p.
Then on Saturday night I'm gonna try to be on for the skills competition at 8 p.
And then Sunday for the All Star Game at eight as well.
But I will be on vacation in New York City since, um since I have ah, February school vacation week next week.
I don't know if I'm leaving tomorrow or so rather unlawful leaving Saturday or Sunday for New York City.
So if I'm not leave, ah, for the skills competition.
But, um, you know, we'll see.
We'll see about the All Star game.
We'll see how it all unfolds, but I'll try toe, I'll still try to broadcast from New York.
We'll see how it all goes.
The port of my channel here on SportsCastr.
I greatly appreciate glad you enjoy the content.
And, yeah, this should be an entertaining second half in front of us, that's for sure.
Um, you know, for Boston they can't, you know, they can't slack one bit on the shooting.
They just got to keep doing more of what they did in that second quarter and because, you know, I don't see the Clippers letting this game get away from them one, but I think I honestly think this will stay a close game all the way to the very end it should.
It should be an entertaining ending from TD Garden to get us ready for All Star weekend.
God, uh, yeah, you know, it's good to see a the likes of Daniel Thais making contributions off the off the bench and, uh, and that's definitely helpful for the Celtics team, cause the Clippersbench was outscoring the Celtics special cycle of the Western Conference standings quickly.
The playoff picture will they see right now is held by Memphis at 28 26.
Then at nine is Portland 25 31 10 in San Antonio at 23 31 than 11 is New Orleans with the same exact records? So New Orleans, currently five games out of the playoff spot? Can they make the playoffs of the question? Maybe, I don't know.
I mean, if his ion continues toe lead that team, you never know.
It's gonna be intriguing playoff race in the Western Conference for that final seed Memphis, currently holding on to that spot.
Still, plenty of basketball to be played, though in the embassies, and we're only at the All Star break, although it is mid February and the regular season ends in April.
So we are getting down the stretch here, which makes things very entertained.
The Celtics, currently third in the East, a few games back of Toronto.
This would be a huge win for them tonight.
We'll see if they can pull out that wind very shortly.
I will preview the second half for you.
Next on SportsCastr.
The Celtics lead the Clippers by Chiu at the half.
Don't go anywhere.
It's N b A Thursday in action.
Right here on SportsCastr.

Boston at the half in the final game before the All Star break for both teams, as it is All Star weekend in Chicago starting tomorrow night through Sunday.
Got to have you all here on sports Caster.
Sorry, I couldn't be on from the start of this game.
I had the commentate my high school girls basketball game, but at least I got to get on for some of it here.
I appreciate it a lot, guys.
And I'm looking forward to All Star weekend.
I don't know about you.
Also Week two of the XFL.
There's a lot to look forward to in sports that whole times.
I'm looking forward to the return of the Champions League next week as well.
Hope I'm trying.
Hopefully, I can call a game on Tuesday, although I will be in New York.
So I'm not entirely sure if I'll be able to, but we'll see.
We will have to wait and see.
There's a performance on a TNT here at the half.
Interesting Anderson Park bubbling.
I have no idea what that means, but yeah, I know.
I I actually just saw it.
Karam Ana on instagram.
Yeah, that was wild.
Like a one handed shot from half court.
He did a little shimmy afterwards, too.
Yeah, that was insane.
I have court shot at the buzzer.
Yeah, I'm like, goodness.
So hopefully we're back to a basketball shortly.
Although TNT is now showing a performance That sounds very bad.
No idea what the heck this is.
It's a guy in Lakers in Lakers attire, which I already don't like about him.
Oh, yeah, First half is an indicator of what we're going to get in the second half, then buckle in because the final 24 minutes of, Ah basketball should be very entertaining, to say the least.
If that's the case, I do think it's going to stay close throughout, just like in the first half.
Um, but, yeah, it was a It was a game in which Okay, good, they're cutting off the performance.
But it was the first half in which there were so many ties, the number of lead changes, and it seemed like every time itself has gone a little run.
The Clippers responded right back, you know, hitting threes and what not led by Kawai Leonard.
So we'll see what the second half comes has in store for us.
That is coming your way after this quick break, Junco anywhere.
It's N b a Thursday night action here on SportsCastr, the Celtics and Clippers.
Third quarter after this stay tuned Scratch that they're already 40 seconds into the third quarter, and TNT decides to cut it out.
So it's now 63 to 58.
We missed a three point shot by the Celtics.
All right, well, I apologize, but that's really TNT small.
What the heck, They're showing that lousy performance.
And then, ah, as a result, cut off the, um, started the second half.
First free throw is good.
I'll know I didn't see a majority of the first quarter, but this might be their biggest lead of the game, and Hayward hits the second free throw and they lead by seven.
They start the half off on a 50 run.
It's the Clippers and the Celtics from TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
Glad to have you here and now A time out is gonna be called by Doc Rivers.
He is not happy at all at the start of the second half from his team 50 seconds into the third quarter, a time out called by the former Celtics coach Doc Rivers, 65 58 Celtics on top.
I'll be back in a moment, Joeckel anywhere.
It's Clipper Celtics.

All right, Welcome back everybody in an update.
Paul George is out for the rest of this game with a hamstring injury.
That's a huge blow for the Clippers.
Fade away shot by Paul George by CO I. Leonard is short.
So yeah, Paul George left the game in the second quarter and it's official.
He will not return.
Here is Jason Tatum.
Baseline tried to get to Daniel Thais that will be off of the Clippers and stays with the Celtics, 65 58.
The Celtics in the lead in the early stages of the third quarter.
Doc Rivers calling an early time out.
Let's be invited from the baseline by Smart Daniel titled The Pump.
They Gonna Drive Buddy.
They call him for a travelling violation as he was driving to the hoop before he executed the dunk.
All right, so we resume play Lou Williams with it for the Clippers.

Leonard back for Williams.
I Leonard fakes.
The three kicks it out to Williams.
Williams fade away along the baseline off the rim.
The rebound grabbed by Boston.
Now it's Gordon Hayward for the Celtics from one end of the two, the other risky past.
There it gets through the Jason Tatum change them will now back up to the corner.
Jane, Um, how about a step back? Three.
No, it's an air ball in Coli Leonard snacks.
The rebound up ahead for Sham it, Sham it with nice passed off to the zoo.
He puts it back up in a whistle.
Blown he's had in the line.
The foul goes against Jason Tatum.
Great job by zoo.
Back to stay with it there after the original MS.
So two shots at the line for him.
Now the first free throw is on the money.
Let's see if he can make it two for two.
We're just over two minutes into the second half here on sports.
Guests are glad to have all of you here on this Thursday night.
I appreciate the support.
The second free throw is good as well from zoo back, So make it 65 to 60.
Here's Campbell Walker Walker out to the right wing with Tatum Tuna in the corner with Marcus Smart smart backing his way in.
You'll now go on the cross over to the lane and floats it in for the bucket.
Marcus Smart Making things look easy out there.
Now here comes the Clippers.
It zoo back over to co eyeliner.
Leonard thought about the three picks up the dribble.
He gets it over to Shannon Chan.
It's passed down low for Zoo back.
That's gonna be a backcourt violation as it went off his leg and he recovered it in the back court.
So it's Celtics basketball.
The Celtics, who in 10 of their last 11 games Walker a nice past, Daniel tights with the floater, and it's good 10 of 11 before the Rockets lost.
That is so they didn't lose to the Rockets here tonight, but a big bounce back opportunity for them.
Kawai letter dried a a foul called on Tyce.
I don't know about that.
Why Leonard's gonna have a pair of free throws.
Wanna pass by Walker on the Thais bucket a little while ago, The floater from Tyce is he executed that one nicely, but it all started with the vision from Walker really threading a needle on the past, but he has the ability to execute as an All Star starter first free throw good from Kawai, and now Ennis Cantor will enter the game for Boston.
Kalai Leonard So far tonight, 18.
6 of 14 from the field, one of three.
We're exactly three minutes into the third quarter, and a second free throw is good as well.
So make it 69 62.
Here is Kemba Walker for the Celtics overto Tatum.
Chain him underneath for Marcus Smarts, markets and out corner three from a win.
It's good Gordon Hayward from behind the arc.
And just like that, the Celtics got a double digit lead.
I think that's the first time tonight for either team that it's been a 10 point lead.
Now it's Marcus Morris.
Step back and he delivers.
That's what I mean.
The Clippers respond right back down the other end.
They've done it time and time again.
Now it's Kemba Walker for the Celtics, overto Gordon Hayward in the corner and that three point shot off the mark for a Marcus Smart and the rebound grabbed by Sham it.
Shannon finds mantra as Harold Harrell overto Lou Williams Williams spins around, gets by Kemba Walker at the edge of the paint is gonna put it in and gets it.
The fall about that from Williams.
What still gets it? 72 66.
Now it's Kemba Walker.
Driving to the lane.
Kicks it out to the wide open market.
Smart from three, and that's a push.
Mark is smart off the great pass from Walker.
He sucked the defenders into the paint, found the wide open man outside.
And that guy was smart, who made no mistake about this shot.
Now while Kawai Leonard excuse me, he missed the original shot That ball was falling off the rim.
Tapped it back in to make sure it went down.
Now it's Marcus Smart.
Back for Gordon Hayward.
Hayward to Ennis. Cancer.
Took a big shot.
Now it's a smart this time.
He can't execute from three.
The rebound taken by Williams Williams.
Double team to Marcus Morris.
Morris quickly back to Williams.
If it's hot potato, sham it with the reverse layup and it's good.
A nice job there from Shannon putting on the moves.
The store clippers keeping it close.
Jason Tatum driving to the way he goes with the reverse, and it's in Chez Sin Tatum with the quick burst of speed in my oh my did it pay off.
Now it's paying off the sham it catch and shoot three.
No, that's it out as Tatum grabs the rebound for Boston.
Now here comes the Celtics chain him, spending his way to the lane.
He's now gonna pass it, pass it out, trying to get it toe.
It's gonna be a kickball in L.
All state with the with the Celtics.
How about thus Marcus Smart three.
Not too long ago, Kendall Walker with the one handed past that was just brilliant from Walker.
I mean, you know, driving into the lane.
Everyone thinks he's going to go for the lay up, but no barred Walker, now getting some rest time on the Celtics bench.
Sure, he'll be back in soon.
Gordon Hayward's of the lane.
He is rejected by Morris, who comes up with the steal.
Williams finds the wide open.
Harold missed the lay up Harold with, I guess too much speed there and a little too much power on the layup couldn't execute the easiest part of all.
And now, on the other end, it will be the Celtics at the line.
It was a great pass from Williams Harold, with no problem corralling the past but just missed the lay up about midway through the third quarter.
Mantra zero with 16.
6 of six from the line, four rebounds and Brad Wanamaker has it for Boston.
Wanamaker over the Hayward Hayward finds Jason Tatum Tater in the corner.
Hayward catch and shoot three notes.
That swirls out.
So why Leonard grabs the rebound for the Clippers now Leonard guarded by chain him.
He'll get it over to Harold Harold underneath for Leonard and gets it to go with the lay up.
That was Tuck there.
Leonard recovered nicely because he didn't quite handle the past that cleanly.
Hadn't really underneath the hoop, but a nice job to just get a little physical and lay it in for the bucket.
That one tip by Leonard, although no problem for Tatum as he corrals and now Jason Tatum, the euro step in the shot is rejected by mantra as Harold as he comes up with the impressive block it stay Celtics ball five seconds on the shot clock, so Boston have to be aware of that shot clock.
That's for sure.
As it's winding down, it'll be inbounded from underneath the hoop.
23 points on the night, eight of 17 shooting and eight rebounds.
Here is smart spin around Sean, and it gets it toe go from the baseline.
Are you kidding me? As the shot clock expired, that's unbelievable from Smart in what seemed like a highly unlikely shot to go down, and now Smart will commit the foul on the sham it three point effort from the corner.
Let's look back at that shot from Smart.
He didn't get it off in time.
Indeed, my goodness.
Sometimes he just turns it on.
Wow! 506 to go here in the third quarter.
And here's Shamin at the line.
The first free throw is made, and now he'll look to make it two for two.
So now all the weight of ah, the second half for the Clippers on the shoulders of Kaleil entered with Paul George now out for the rest of the game with that injury, what they're staying around Sham.
It's third shot is coming up after he was fouling the three point attempt, and he makes it three for three So it's now a four point Boston lead.
Brad Wanamaker brings it up for Boston and an illegal screen there from Jason Tatum in an offensive foul call shade.
I'm not too happy afterwards, either.
A basketball will be taken up by Sham it.

They're gonna kick it out.
Marcus Morris has to take the three.
Smart grabs the rebound.
Now here comes smart.
He's feeling it guarded by coffee.
He goes town with a bang and he gets the foul call.
We know smart can flop around.

Looks like he went down a little bit dramatically.
The foul called on Sham it.
And now break is he heads to the bench for the Clippers.
Tetum will inbound it from the far side.
Gets it into his cancer.
Brown wanted top of the key with Tatum is gonna drive the steel there from herel in a foul.

I didn't see much there.
Oh, wow, that was a clean stripped to me.
I'm a Celtics fan, but I'll tell you, that seemed like a clean steel to me.
But not according to referee.
Eight seconds on the shot clock.
It'll be inbounded from the baseline by looks like Marcus Smart for 15 remaining in the third quarter.
Gordon Hayward and Kemba Walker, right now resting up on the Celtics pension before we inbound and we have a timeout on the floor.
It's a good one from TD Garden and the Beautiful Feed by four.
I'll be back with more action after this time out.

A glad commentary here on SportsCastr.
Okay, all right, what's going on? We're right back at it and off the inbounds pass A foul called for 15 to go in the third quarter and semi usually is the one heading to the free throw line for the Boston Celtics.
It's like the fouls against Lou Williams.

I will have to wrap up the broadcast at the end of the third quarter.
Unfortunately, I got school tomorrow, so I have to head to bed.
But, uh, all right, I'm on vacation all of next week, so I'll be able to do full broadcast.
Oja laid this season in 50 games, played three points on average, 40% shooting in 1.9 rebounds.
You know, doesn't get an awful lot of playing time, but, you know, makes a little bit of an impact off the bench.
The first free throw is good to remind your the MBA Rising Stars game will take place tomorrow at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
I will be on the call for that right here on SportsCastr, so make sure you check it out.
We got the likes of Trey Young and Luca Dawn Church in action among many other stars with a bright future ahead of them in the n b A.

Now it's Ennis Canter Canter over to Jason Tatum.
Chatham has around the mid court logo shot, clock winding down, spin around, move the lane overto Wanamaker.
Now the corner was smart fakes.
The three gonna drive to the paint.
His shot falls short, and it's taken away by mantra as Harold.
A shot clock violation called the Clippers had possession before that shot clock expired.
That's what Doc Rivers is claiming, he said.
It would have played to our advantage if you just let us play on.
Because that shot clock expired after the Clippers had possession.
That there, on on the floor right now for L. A.
Kawai, Leonard and Shannon, along with Coffee Green and Harold Leonard gonna take it to the lane.
A lot of contact there, a foul called on cancer will be on the floor 3 18 to go in the quarter, so Leonard will inbound it from right in front of the Celtics bench on the far side.
Put on the shot clock.
Leonard gets it in for coffee.
Coffee to shame it shot caught down the seventh chairman off the pick.
Gonna take it baseline guarded by 10.
I'm gonna kick it outside now with one of the shot clock.
Three point effort at the buzzer by Leonard is good, but they're gonna not count it.
They say a shot clock violation.
Are they gonna take a look at this? I don't know.
It's awfully close.
I'll tell you that much.
This one is close.
But it looked like, yeah, that ball was still on his fingertip When the clock hits 0.

Lou Williams with it for the Clippers.
Williams to the baseline with Harold Harold through contact in the lane, a shot falls short.
He gets his own rebound.
Kicks it out for Shannon, wide open from three.
That's off the mark.
Cancer grabs the rebound, takes a hard fall and a foul called on L. A.
With exactly two minutes to go in the third quarter, the foul there goes against green cancer, a little shaken up after that, and the Celtics are in the bonus.

Here's Campbell Walker.
Walker finds cancer in the lane.
The hook shot no, and the rebound taken by the Clippers here is Lou Williams.
Fatal? A no good Harold tried to put back the rebound, unable to do so, and he was Walker taking across half court.
He's gonna pull up from downtown that is the back side of the rim, and now it's L. A.
From one end to the other, Lou Williams has it guarded by semi, usually fakes.
The three kicks out to the right wing, and that's gonna be a foul called on Brad Wanamaker, the Celtics bench in unison.
There was in disagreement, and now the Clippers head to the bonus of two shots coming up at the line.
We got 106 to go in the third quarter.
Sham in the one shooting at the free throw line.
The first free throw is good Grant Williams coming into the game for the Celtics.

The floater falls short.
You want the foul to be called.

No good, but the offensive rebound.
But John Michael Green is put back in, and it's now just a two point game.
Camel Walker off the pick, going to get it out to Jason Tatum, driving away and flushes it down.
Are you kidding me? Chase and take him with a monster.
Now the other way, Lou Williams silences the crowd is he drains the triple.
It's now one point.

So we got about a three second difference between the shot clock and game clock.
It's Kemba Walker over it for Jason, but step back. Three.
