Brian chats with The Ringer’s Michael Pina about the Celtics’ successful West Coast road trip, including a win over the Lakers on Christmas, Derrick White’s All-Star case, Jrue Holiday’s recent hot steak, how Kristaps Porzingis has changed the team’s offense, and more (0:30). Then, Brian discusses the Patriots’ win over the Broncos on Christmas Eve, Bailey Zappe’s strong game, how this changes their draft strategy, and whether they will still look to add a QB (54:30). Finally, Brian and Jamie talk a bit more about the game and say goodbye to Caleb Williams and Drake Maye as the Pats drop to no. 4 in the NFL draft (1:23:50).
