Bucher: San Antonio's tool kit better than Celtics'

Ric Bucher checks in to break down the Spurs and the Celtics, and points to one big advantage for San Antonio - their bench.

The Spurs get 41.8 PPG from their bench, good enough for second in the NBA. They have one of the deepest benches in the league, allowing them to substitute just the right player in any given situation.

While Bucher refers to the Spurs bench as a full tool box, capable of finding the right tool at the right time, he calls the Boston bench, "A couple of screws and a piece of duct tape."

Ouch.

Tuesday, Jan. 17: Hershey Star Wars jerseys raise big bucks

Here are all the links from around the hockey world and what I’m reading, while feeling like Felicity Jones could have been a little better on SNL last weekend. It didn’t feel like it was the right platform for her and she was just straight reading the cue cards in her monologue.  

*Congrats to the Hershey Bears, who raised over $42,000 for charity with their Empire-inspired Star Wars jerseys from last weekend.

*When Bruins winger Brad Marchand begins to score his value goes way, way up, according to TSN stat maven Scott Cullen.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mike Harrington wants the Buffalo Sabres to get into “attack mode” rather than the passive mode they’ve been in for some time.

*A discussion about the NHL trade deadline and which players are likely to get moved still weeks and weeks away from that deadline.

*The Winnipeg Jets are searching for answers after another loss, and have called upon Ondrej Pavelec in a move of desperation.

*Funny commercial with Brent Burns and Joe Thornton, who have to be the ultimate bosom, bearded buddies in the NHL.

*For something completely different: as the next Lando, Donald Glover understands why the character is vital to the Star Wars universe.
