Throw in some slow starts in games for the Celtics and you have an unimpressive start to the season for a team expected to be the team to beat in the East. Bulls haven't score 100 or more points in five of their last six games.

"We were prepared. I think that we've been prepared other games but we've got to match that with the attitude and effort to execute on both ends", Irving said. Despite losing to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night, it's becoming clear that the Bulls won't be door-mats this season, and they've found a number one scorer in LaVine, who led the Bulls with 26 points against Dallas and is averaging 27.1 points per game this season. This is an interesting development considering talk of Gordon Hayward potentially accepting a bench role-starting tonight, maybe-and Morris being the most likely pick to take his place in the starting lineup.

Hayward suffered a fractured left ankle on opening night last season. With Irving back and the center of attention, Terry Rozier's minutes have been reduced and there seems to be a bit of a chemistry problem with the Celtics struggling and the Toronto Raptors are off to a flying start.

Magic 111, 76ers 106 - At Orlando, Fla.: Jimmy Butler had 14 points in his Philadelphia debut, but the 76ers collapsed late and lost to Orlando after Jonathon Simmons hit a 3-pointer with 8.7 seconds. This year Irving has bounced back quickly, posting team-leading stats of 21 points, 5.4 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting.466 from the field and.405 from distance.

The one downside of Netflix's subscriptions is the fact that it is more expensive than most of the other video-on-demand services. The streaming space is starting to see more competition and even studios are getting in on the action.

Up 16 at the half after a 32-11 second quarter, the Celtics used an 11-2 start to the second half to build a 25-point lead. "We've got to come out and play better". He's doing as much as he can right now. You'd hate to have a setback that keeps him out for a longer stretch.

The Celtics continued to score easily, and by the time Tatum drilled his fourth 3-pointer with 4:36 left in the third, they had boosted their lead to 71-47. Chicago's 82 points marked the lowest total allowed by Boston this season.

The Celtics were in a need of a reboot.

And when the young Bulls gave the Celtics even more space at the start of the third quarter, the C's responded with an 11-0 burst that started on a Horford three, continued through a Brown dunk, another Horford three, and Tatum's third 3-pointer of the night for a 62-37 lead.
