Celtics recall Joseph from D-League

The Boston Celtics have recalled rookie forward Kris Joseph from the Maine Red Claws.

The announcement was made prior to the Celtics' game vs. the Bucks, which means Joseph could be active for it if Doc Rivers chooses to activate him.

In seven games for the Red Claws, Joseph is averaging 20.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 2.0 steals in 38.1 minutes per game.

He was ranked fifth in NBA D-League in points per game at the time of his recall.

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.
