Jeff Teague discusses how teams are gaining ground in the in-season tournament.

The team coach have announced the best player of the tournament.

Jeff Teague wasn’t mad at the Celtics fouling Andre Drummond to run up the score on the Bulls to advance in the NBA In-Season Tournament.

Former Atlanta Hawks standout Jeff Teague didn’t mind teams running up the score to qualify for the knockout round of the in-season tournament. He spoke about it during an interview on FanDuelTV’s hit show Run It Back.

Jeff Teague’s comments came after the Boston Celtics repeatedly fouled Andre Drummond intentionally to force him to shoot free throws.

Although the Celtics were already up by 32 points, they wanted to increase their chances of winning by a wide enough margin to satisfy the point differential needed to advance to the Knockout Round.

Bulls head coach Billy Donovan was so perplexed by it that he stepped out to talk to Celtics coach Joe Mazulla about what he was doing.

When asked by NBA Insider Shams Charania if he would’ve been upset if he was a player on the Bulls, Teague said, “I wouldn’t have been mad. I mean, you gotta make free throws. Straight up. You could have had 20 points.

Even sticking with this whole in-season tournament thing, the Hawks pulled their starters last night and the Cavs kept theirs in kind of running up the score.”

Teague’s assessment of the Cavaliers’ convincing victory over the Hawks is accurate.

The Cavaliers defeated the Hawks 128-105, therefore even though they were eliminated from the tournament, they still had a significant advantage over them.

The teams have earned a spot in the tournament, so this could provide for some exciting basketball.
