Nice start to the season fellas
Haha, when it's not your night...
Are you fucking serious? Aminu is the scrub tonight that's going to finish us off?
If Aminu is gonna hit from a mile away then whatever
When Aminu hits those shots you are just fucked
Aminu is a career 33% three point shooter. Drains two huge ones in the fourth.
it's tough to tell what is and isn't a foul in this league
and taking out the only guy shooting well??
Makes a difference now, though.
Aminu eating Hayward up
on que Gordon beat again
of course he hit that. that seems to literally happen every fucking game
Long three, but you have to cover Aminu
Aminu, Myers Leonard and Seth Curry are a combined 8/14 from 3 tonight.
Seriously. What the hell you gonna do?
Give me a fucking break with this. That asshole draining 28 footers?
Or Murray. Or Ingles.
Leaving Hayward in right now is dumb. His man has drilled at least three back breaking threes with him nowhere in sight.
No 3. Quick layup.
It’s not that hard, just check if he’s wearing green or not.
If every bozo is going to turn into Steph against us, I give up
Hard to blame Gordon for that
They guy shot it from a mile away
Brown's finishing skills have yet to come together. When he jumps, it's never straight up or to the rim. It's always a fadeaway, and it usually misses.
i hate this so much
so you want him guarding someone three feet outside the three point line?
This team is going to be at .500 at the end of the week.
What you are gonna do is make him put the ball on the floor, period. You can turn this team over because they like to throw it around. They shoot too well to be overhelping when you can’t physically get back, which Hayward can’t right now.
The fight was nice and this was a schedule loss anyway but you aren’t going to win games dropping 37 inefficient points in a half on the road.
WTF is KI doing?
This team has large problems. I think you have to swap Morris and Hayward for now.
Bulls at home. Please win by 25+
Yeah that had to be a 3.
So fucking glad this road trip is over.
Not seeing a well coached team. Stevens has a lot of work to do.
Played half a game with a crooked rim.....and still bricked way too many with a straight one.
Regardless of the exact steps taken, Brad must clarify guys' roles. He's making everyone a step slower with the overthinking and indecision that comes from not knowing who is who on offense.
At least they looked like an NBA team in the second half
Yeah some big misses all game including layups. Brutal
Brad Stevens seems to have lost his magic touch with play design coming out of timeouts. The Celtics have had mostly poor to indifferent opportunities where they used to have gems.
You should win when you hold both Dame and McCollum each under 20
Weird how they keep playing better in the second half. It the can replace the stretches where they are simply horrid with stretches where they are just mediocre or even a normal level of bad, they won’t have these giant holes to dig out of and can start winning some of these.
Agreed. There’s a lack of unit cohesion. He may have gone too far with the “no positions” concept. Having Kyrie, Rozier, and Smart all on the floor at the same time is just crazy. Hayward’s usage is also broken. It’s just a mess right now.
How long until it is OK to criticize Stevens? Is he still in "trying things" mode?
Feel like you HAVE to try some two big lineups. They are getting absolutely roasted on the boards and in the PNR game defensively because the help man is always way too small to handle the roll man. And they aren’t leveraging their smallness on O with ball and body movement, so the advantage isn’t coming to fruition.
I want a whole fuckton of Theis moving forward. He won’t kill your spacing or movement on O, and he can rebound the ball and provide legit help D. They need more guys out there doing little things.
NBA players hit wide open 3s, and Gordon left him wide open more than once. Hayward does not need to play high leverage minutes
There was some Baynes + Theis last year, right?
Horford played really bad tonight. The team looked great during the stretch Theis was on the floor. I think Theis should take Baynes minutes unless they are playing Philly.
People can and will get after him now. Not sure 13 games is enough of a sample size to judge anything given that he is trying to figure out rotations and touches. Furthermore, the Celtics just aren't hitting their shots, open or otherwise. If you draw up plays and the players cannot convert, even when they get the right looks, I am not sure its on the coach.
That said, I am glad I don't have to listen to Boston sports radio. The Celtics and Patriots are going to have a lot of hot taking and misery the early part of this week.
Not necessarily Baynes and Theis together. Brad needs to put Baynes or Theis out there with Horford. He's only using one of the 3 at any given time, and it's fucking killing them.
The easiest solution right now is to put Baynes in the starting lineup, move Gordon to the second unit. Try Kyrie, Tatum, Brown, Horford and Baynes, with Rozier, Smart, Morris, Gordon and Theis off the bench.
His need to put GH out there with the starters is costing us on a nightly basis, IMO.
Pretty dismal Sunday for Boston road teams.
