Make Perkins Dunk Coach?
What's Dee Brown up to?
Marcus taking the last shot is not optimal
Think he was going up for a layup then decided last second he wanted to dunk instead.
Marcus why the fuck are you shooting with like 16 left on the shot clock?
Marcus and Terry 1-11 isn't going to win games
LeVert and Harris tonight.
Marcus single-handedly losing this lead
Smart needs to be benched right now. Brutal at both ends.
Bench Marcus. Infuriating.
Smart is truly awful.
Bench is doing everything they can to lose this game.
Feel free to coach Smart any time now.
This bench combo with Morris has been terrible tonight. They don't have anyone that can score and their defensive rotations haven't been worth a damn.
When Smart sucks, he REALLY sucks.
Smart is somehow a +0. Morris is a -16.
This is 100% on Brad. You put out a lineup where Smart and Rozier are the lead scorers, that's what you're going to get. I don't even blame Marcus: he looked great playing with Kyrie and Al and setting things up there.
Horford, Tatum and Brown are a combined +51 right now. That's how bad the bench is playing. Jaylen is +22 by himself.
I think that's why Morris is in there but it isn't working.
The ceiling on what I’d offer Smart is much, much lower than it was a month ago. He makes plays in crunch time, but crunch time wouldn’t be as close if he didn’t blow so many offensive possessions.
I think Morris got bailed out by that foul call. He had no chance of making a reverse from that angle.
Just said on tv the bench has been outscored 35-7.
Larkin, Morris, Baynes, Smart and Rozier right now? Really?
Smart should just not ever take a shot again.
I ask again, why are we letting Marcus take shots?
Smart can't shoot and can't finish inside. Unlike Rozier he's usually not even close inside
Smart makes his free throws though. That's the oddest part.
At least one Marcus has a shot
Talk about stealing some minutes right now. Wow.
Morris is saving them
I give up trying to explain any part of that man.
Is it? Rubio and Rozier do too. DeRozan.
Morris is so sweet from that spot
All five starters scoring at least 14; bench with 9 total.
It's working better than the prior bench combo. Or maybe Morris just got hot....
Really not sure how I feel about Morris. He stops the ball a lot but he's money from 18 feet.
Morris is the guy on the second unit, not that I love mid range pull-ups but he’s a pro scorer.
Toronto has 18 assists on 24 field goals tonight. The Celtics have 13 on 33. Not sure we should put as much into that stat as we do.
He works better with bench players who need someone who can create own shot
That's the thing; it seems like he should be able to shoot! Some of it is terrible shot selection, but for the most part he just has no touch. He'd be better off passing every possession.
Starters are 30/51, Bench is 3/23.
Marcus is a riddle wrapped in an enigma in a Celtics uniform
Speaking of that Toronto/Houston game, with one minute gone in the 3rd, the teams have combined for 31 fouls, and 47 free throw attempts.
Brad going to Larkin was so money.
Why even question Stevens’ player rotations?
Okay now can we have Kyrie?
Ok Brad, nice little lead, five minutes left, let's get Kyrie and Al back in there and finish this off.
Or just keep letting MaMo shoot 3s. That works too.
