    Tonight it is Tatum’s turn to be a complete zero.

    Marcus out 6 to 8 minutes, back to midseason form.

    It wasn't a dislocation so I'm not sure I get your point. People asked recovery time if it was a dislocation.

    I get you really wanted some internet points here, but it was a bad look.

    37 point 3rd quarter given up so far. Coach refused to call a timeout at any point, even when it was obvious 2 minutes in.

    Games like these are why we should have faith in Hayward being a top contributor in the playoffs

    Smart disruptive despite the shoulder strain.

    Just looked it up. Brian Scalabrine made $20,126,688 during his playing days. He averaged 3.1ppg for his career (never higher than 6.3ppg in any season).

    I hate my parents for not giving me the genetic makeup to be 6'9".

    That's the standard timeframe for a shoulder dislocation. Of course, Smart didn't dislocate it.

    39 point quarter. No defensive energy or connectedness.

    I’m mesmerized by Hayward but yeah that was kind of a meltdown of a quarter. It happens out of nowhere.

    This is on the coaches imo. It's a focus and energy issue, not a talent or scheme one.

    If I'm not mistaken, that 83 points in the last two 3rd quarters the Celtics have played, right? Nothing like halftime adjustments.

    Is there a rule that you're not allowed to call a timeout to stop a run or something? Stevens seems to out and out refuse to call them this year... I don't get it. Is he saving the TOs for after the game?

    Edit: Thibideau called one when it was 0-4.. it would seem that it would be a good idea to stop momentum and call a solid out of bounds play that Stevens is so good at setting up.. instead he just lets the team go on runs.

    At this point I honestly wonder whether he thinks there's useful mental development from playing through bad stretches, at least in the regular season.

    Some coaches believe, especially at this point of the season, it's more important to let teams play through stretches like that. One may certainly disagree with that, but Stevens isn't the only one.

    It was funny to catch up on the thread as I was watching him sub him. Apologies for pointing out the hilarity it is to see baseless speculation that a player is out for months when he’s reappearing on my screen mere minutes after heading to the locker room. If my post was a bad look then I was holding a mirror. Didn’t seem like a huge issue to point out the jump to conclusions approach failed.

    I'm going to tend to side with the coaches who have the philosophy "do whatever gives you the best chance of winning the game. " Call me crazy.

    Again, there wasn't speculation that he was out for months. That was simply one possibility and people asked about it. No one said he WAS out.

    It's pretty much the same every single time something like that happens. This is a game thread--a dude took what looked to be a bad injury and went to the locker room. The thread discussed it. Film at eleven.

    Brad likes to save as many as possible and he had to burn one early with Smart hurt. Just like now where he let Morris play hurt until a natural whistle.

    Can you imagine what this years team would be like without Marcus Smart? He’s such a total glue guy

    I don't even necessarily think they stop momentum.. but at least you can stop and think, get a little rest in your legs and write up a play.
    Any synopsis on the thesis you linked too?

    edit: it also didn't even seem like he made too many subs during that stretch. Brad may have access to numbers we don't..but it would seem like he should change things up given how the third quarter has gone this year.

    It may all add up to a positive in the post season when guys have to gut it out and the C's have better legs because they played less all year also.. but kind of feel like he should help them figure things out a bit more before he tests out not calling TOs to test maturity/will or whatever.

    I think Brad needs to make a rule. Only Marcus can throw a lob pass. Maybe Kyrie when he's on the floor with Time Lord, but that's it.

    I'll bet their success rate for non-Smart lobs is about 10%, and it's like 90% when he throws them.

    Smart looking completely unaffected by the shoulder strain. That is something to be happy about.

    I believe he is limited to 3 TO's in the 4th Quarter
