The NBA Regular Season is officially underway and the Celtics have played 2 totally different games with 2 totally different results without the services of Kemba Walker. The first game saw the Celtics take on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the MIlwaukee Bucks. The Celtics would go up by as much as 17 points in the 2nd half via a great performance by Jaylen Brown. However come the 4th quarter Giannis and the Bucks cut the lead to a 2 point game in the first 6 minutes of the quartr before ultimately we saw a back and forth dance the rest of the way. The Celtics would trail by 1 point with 8.9 seconds left when they gave Jayson Tatum the ball and he went 1 on 1 with Giannis guarding him and Tatum let a 3 point shot go off over the outreached hand of Giannis. The shot would hit high off the backboard and drop in giving the Celtics a 122-120 lead with 0.4 seconds left. Giannis would draw a foul on new Celtics Center Tristan Thompson allowing him the chance to tie the game at the free throw line. However Giannis would miss the 2nd free throw and it would give the Celtics the 122-121 win. The game saw Celtics stars Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum outduel the Bucks duo of MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpp and star Khris Middleton by the final amount of 63 to 62. This game saw Celtics newcomers Tristan Thompson and Jeff Teague chip in 31 points. 2 nights later on Christmas Day however things went the exact opposite for the Celtics as they hosted the duo of Kevin Durant and former Celtic Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets Superstar Duo would outshine the Celtics Star duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. As Kyrie Irving and Durant combined for 66 to Tatum and Browns 47 in what turned out to be a 28 point win for the Nets 123-95. So what did these 2 games prove. Does this season come down to the healt of Kemba Walker. Is a devastating injury the only thing that can stop the Nets. We will discuss with Rich Conte of the Techlife Podcast and Celtics fan Andy Verno
