Getty Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics bounced back into the win column at the first time of asking, defeating the Dallas Mavericks 112-125 on November 23, with Jaylen Brown impressing throughout the contest.

Speaking to the media following the game, Marcus Smart boldly claimed that when Brown is playing at his best, he’s an MVP candidate in his own right.

"When JB is playing at his highest (level) he's an MVP candidate as well"

“The things that he’s doing when he’s at his best, is the same thing JT’s doing at his. You know, JT has been in the talks for the MVP race, and when JB is playing the way he’s playing at his highest peak, he’s in that race too…We got two sharpshooters that can do some damage. So, I’m saying, when JB is playing at his highest, he’s an MVP candidate as well,” Smart said.

Brown finished the contest against Dallas with 31 points, four rebounds, four assists, and two steals while shooting 72.2% from the field on 13-of-18 shooting and 66.7% from deep on two-of-three shooting. When Brown doesn’t have the expectations of operating as a ball-handling playmaker and is allowed to work off the ball, attack with straight-line drives, and pull-up from the mid-range, he’s an unstoppable force in the half-court.

Brown Reveals Tatum ‘Was Always Playing’

Leading up to the Celtics’ game against Dallas, Tatum was listed as questionable on Boston’s injury report and wasn’t announced as a participant in the game until late in the day. 

When speaking to the media in his post-game press conference, Brown joked that Tatum was always set to take part in the Celtics game, as he wanted to match up with Luka Doncic, who is also among the current MVP candidates.

“He was gonna play. He was playing, he knew who he was matched up with. He had that game circled. Don’t let him fool y’all. He was playing the whole time,” Brown said.

Tatum ended up seeing 36 minutes of playing time and once again provided the Celtics with a superstar-level performance, dropping 37 points, pulling down 13 rebounds, dishing out five assists, and blocking two shots while shooting 11-of-24 from the field on 45.8% shooting. 

It remains to be seen if Tatum is going to be rested in the coming weeks, as he seems to be nursing a slight wrist issue and was seen limping at different points of Boston’s game against the Mavericks.

Al Horford Credits Celtics Crowd in Victory

The TD Garden is known for how noisy and intense the crowd can get, with the fanbase often being referred to as the Celtics’ sixth man on the floor. Following Boston’s win, Al Horford credited the fanbase during his post-game media session.

“Well first, our crowd was, the energy was amazing tonight. Before the game started, I kinda looked around and was like ‘Oo it’s one of those,’ like you just felt it, everybody was here, ready to go before (tip-off). And that just really got us going…That helps tremendously,” Horford said.

After suffering a disheartening defeat against the Chicago Bulls on November 21, the Celtics returned back to the win column with their latest victory and will be looking to build upon their performance when they face off against the Sacramento Kings on November 25.

Nick Sirianni Addresses Eagles Major Problem: It Makes You Mad

Getty Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni wants his team to keep pushing forward after a strong start to the season.

Head coach Nick Sirianni called Sunday’s 35-10 victory a “pretty complete game.” The Philadelphia Eagles were excellent – scratch that, dominant – in all three phases: offense, defense, special teams. They put an old-fashioned whupping on the Tennessee Titans.

However, there was one major problem area that needed to be addressed. The Eagles committed 12 penalties for 80 yards, including 5 in the first quarter alone. Their usually reliable offensive line – arguably the best blocking unit in the NFL – accounted for 8 penalties. Sirianni shouldered the blame, saying he has to do a better job of coaching that stuff. He was calling in the offensive plays too quickly and throwing out too many odd formations. The devil is in the details sometimes.

“It makes you mad that you had that many pre-snap penalties because that is always a reflection of me,” Sirianni told reporters. “Like I said, I have to do a better job coaching that. I have to do a better job coaching it, and we’ll clean that up.

“But that was a pretty complete game for us, and I think that is a really good football team. I have a lot of respect for the players and coaches over there, and I just think that is a good football team.”

Left guard Landon Dickerson was the biggest culprit versus Tennessee. He was personally responsible for four penalties: 2 false starts, 2 holding calls. Other players drawing flags included center Jason Kelce (holding), right tackle Lane Johnson (holding), and left tackle Jordan Mailata (false start). Tight end Jack Stoll (false start) and Jalen Hurts (false start) rounded out the laundry bin, plus there was an illegal shift call.

Five penalties already in this first quarter, four of which were pre-snap.

As sloppy as things got, the Eagles’ offense never skipped a beat. Quarterback Jalen Hurts threw for 380 yards. Receivers A.J. Brown (119) and DeVonta Smith (102) both went over 100 yards. And tight end Jack Stoll set a new career high with 3 catches for 41 yards.

“As far as the performance by Jalen [Hurts] and the offensive line in protection, and then by Jack [Stoll] getting going and then having two guys with 100 yards, that was pretty big,” Sirianni said. “That was pretty sweet for A.J. [Brown] to have that game. I know that was important to him.”

Defense Registers 6 Sacks, Shuts Down Derrick Henry

The Titans make no bones about being a one-dimensional offense. They rely on Pro Bowl running back Derrick Henry to move the chains. As he goes, Tennessee goes. Henry ran into an impenetrable brick wall on Sunday as the Eagles held him to 30 yards on 11 carries. Sirianni credited the defensive line first, then threw flowers on the secondary for “closing the gaps.”

“Derrick Henry is a phenomenal player,” Sirianni said. “We knew we couldn’t let him get to that second level free, so the defensive line was going to have to work. We have a good array of defensive lineman to keep throwing guys in there and they are fresh. They all did a nice job. I thought we played well up front. I saw our secondary players closing the gaps once they got cracked on. I saw [Darius] Slay get in there on tackles and James [Bradberry] get in there on tackles and Marcus [Epps] and Reed [Blankenship].”

The Eagles’ defense also racked up 6 sacks – highlighted by Josh Sweat – and held Tennessee to 209 yards of total offense. The Titans looked out of sync all afternoon, especially on third down where they went 4-for-14.

Britain Covey Breaks Out in Return Game

One knock on the Eagles in recent weeks has been their lack of an explosive return man. Britain Covey came into Sunday’s game averaging 6.8 yards per punt return, not an awe-inspiring number as calls to replace him started slowly to trickle in.

Britain Covey on season-high 105 return yards: "I feel like [fans] on social media were desperate for a big return. While I was frustrated, I wasn’t nervous or impatient. This type of performance definitely makes me more hungry. Once you break a couple, it helps the confidence."

— Josh Tolentino (@JCTSports) December 4, 2022

Sirianni stuck with Covey and the undrafted rookie rewarded his trust. He fielded 6 punts for 105 yards versus Tennessee, including a 27-yard romp. After the game, Sirianni gave him and the entire special teams unit a special shout out.

“What our special teams did today gave us a spark,” Sirianni said. “When you start at the 40-yard line consistently, I mean, obviously that’s huge. So, it was just a spark that we really needed. It was. That’s why it felt like just a complete game by our entire team today.”
