We have some bad news on the Boston Celtics front.

The first trailer for 'Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker' is here
In an interview with IGN at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, Zampella directly stated "it's a single-player story game. JJ teased that it will be an adventure that the group goes on together. "This is just very specific: Rise of Skywalker ".


Per an official statement from the Celtics, Smart is expected to miss between four and six weeks as an afternoon MRI revealed a "partial avulsion of his left oblique abdominal muscle off of his iliac crest". But after the Celtics struggled through the first 20 games of the season, Smart was inserted into the starting lineup, and Boston quickly rattled off an eight-game winning streak. He started in 60 games this season, averaging 8.9 points, 4 assists and 2.9 rebounds. The 21-year-old's partnership with Kyrie Irving, who will be playing his first playoff match for the Celtics after missing last season with injury, will be key if they are to make a deep run in the playoffs. Challenged as a shooter over his first four National Basketball Association seasons, he hit career highs in field-goal (42.2) and 3-point percentage (36.4) this year. He left their game against the Orlando Magic on Sunday.

Tesla's $35,000 Model 3 just got even harder to buy
Tesla said the option to lease a Model 3 is now open to USA customers with a small down payment and competitive monthly payments. A Standard Range Plus Model 3 without any options nets a $504 per month payment for 36 months, 10,000 miles, and $3,000 down.


Boston will hope for a similar quick recovery from Smart, as his leadership and defensive presence is the lifeblood of the team. He tried to play through the injury, but went down again on the next possession, and had to be helped to the locker room. He's also one of the team's best on-ball defenders.
