Mourinho on penalty: No thoughts. No comment

It was a third straight draw in the league for Mourinho's men, leaving them 13 points off the lead and nine points off a top-four berth. Mourinho was asked why he introduced Fellaini and that set the tone for a tetchy exchange in which the Portuguese went on the attack, claiming "I didn't see" why the penalty was awarded or a wild two-footed challenge from Marcus Rojo on Gueye that could have earned a red card.

Reggie Jackson (knee) is out. Home Game - The Celtics are at home and should get a boost from the home crowd. The mini-run by the Pistons to close out the half was in many ways symbolic of how most of the first half played out. In between his free throws, Isaiah Thomas made a pair of 3-pointers that brought Boston within 53-52. Crowder didn't like the fact that the Celtics allowed 121 points in the loss to the Pistons on Wednesday, and called on his team to buckle down defensively. Read More
