Marshall: Celtics lacking urgency

Donny Marshall explains that the Celtics lack of urgency is their biggest weakness.

On four separate occasions on Friday, the Celtics held leads of 10 points or more. In the end, they didn't hold any of them, and lost in overtime.

"Maybe the point of emphasis should be, when you get a lead, try to build on that," said Marshall. "I don't think the Celtics play with that urgency when it comes to getting a ten point lead, then stretch it to a fifteen, then a twenty."

With the loss, the Celtics fall to 13-13 on the season and 9-5 at home.

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments


NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
