Jon and Justin take a look at the past week of ups and downs, both in terms of the Celtics efforts and the play of Jaylen Brown and James Young. Kelly Olynyk also seems to have returned to form rather quickly following shoulder surgery and has helped defensively more than we realized. And finally, Marcus Smart has moved into the starting line-up for Jar Crowder and his contributions have been undeniable.
The play-by-play voice of the Main Red Claws, Chris Sedenka, joins Justin to preview the Red Claws season which begins tonight. With the Celtics relationship continuing to grow and the plethora of draft picks makes the Red Claws a must watch for every die-hard Celtics fans. In the second part of the show, Jared Weiss from The Garden Report on CLNS Radio and CelticsBlog gives insightful analysis into the defensive and rebounding struggles that we have seen from the Celtics. He also reluctantly answers whether he thinks Jared Sullinger or Evan Turner would be more helpful to the team today and we close out the show discussing the offseason training focus of Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart. Enjoy!
