Hayward always makes the extra pass when he should just keep going to the basket...
So not agreeing with you that a rookie big who hasn't proven he can play in the NBA is the Celtics missing ingredient is being obtuse? Lets agree to disagree.
I wonder when those new beautiful brick homes at Hayward Estates go up for sale.
I'm mostly with you on not panicking, DeJesus, but I don't think Brad has earned the benefit of the doubt with any of his decisions this year. I'm fine with people suggesting that he might be missing something in RWill.
They all Kyrie offense only works for so long... then everyone else gets disinterested, Kyrie gets gassed, and the whole thing stops...
No it can't. I'm not blaming the struggles just on missed shots but it's 75% of the problem. The defense stinks tonight sure, but for the vast majority of the other games it's been the offense.
I never said he was the missing ingredient. I never said I know more about basketball than Ainge. I’ll agree to let you stop trying to put words in other peoples’ mouths.
I will say, if playing this badly is what it takes to bench long 2s Tatum until he gets his head straight, I'm all for it.
It just sucks that Brad is such a wuss that he won't do it until then.
Great defense on one end by Jaylen, gets rewarded by getting hammered taking it to the hoop and getting no call.
How about a fucking foul.
Sure, let's stand around while the guy with the ball just drives and kicks out for a 3 or shoot a highly contested shot. There is no movement. Everyone is spread out around the 3 point line waiting for a pass.
2/18 from deep or whatever it is now is beyond bad. This is on everyone. Hitting open looks shouldn't be this hard.
It’s not a recipe for long term success but in my view tons of guys are shooting scared. They need to loosen up and he’s probably going to have to will them there. It’s basically the same reason why role players suck on the road in the NBA playoffs. Just play a little tighter and shots rim out. Players like Kyrie and Morris have a type of confidence where they can miss 10 straight and are convinced they’ll make the next 10. They may have to do it to get the rest of the guys loose enough to start seeing a few fall again. This is all psychobabble nonsense but I think there’s a lot of that in basketball
Jaylen with another bad take earlier. That needs to be addressed
Make Jaylen 2017 again!
Addressed by whom?
This. And his last take was 2017 esque
Tatum back. We shall see.
That was good.
This game is right there for the taking. Just need a mini run to close out the 3rd.
Well, there’s actually some energy now...
JB remembered he could do that!
What a pass and a Great Leap (Forward ?)
we do all of that for a Baynes 3???
it's ok for some people on the team not to fucking shoot
Which one? He's 4/6 from the field in the quarter, and his first miss was a 3, and the 2nd was a drive to the hoop that he got hammered on, but didn't get the foul call?
If only we had a rookie who could block shots...
Why would Smart save that, so he could throw it off the back of the backboard?
Terry has no clue out there.
Terry is actually scary now.
I need a trial separation from watching Rozier
As bad as Jaylen has played this year, I'm still really hopeful for him.
As far as Rozier, I will drive his ass to the airport if Danny trades him for a bucket of balls.
They cut 1 point off the halftime deficit.
Rozier two bad misses to end the quarter was the most predictable thing ever
Do us all a favor, Danny.
The Terry and Smart lineup in 60 seconds blew that quarter. Stevens is a dope.
Jaylen is very clearly a victim of team context. Rozier has been a cancer.
It would be awesome if certain people knew their places
Terry has looked horrific all year. I have tried to be patient, but I really think trading him would be addition by subtraction at this point.
Yeah, he's lost all benefit of the doubt at this point. In related news, he's losing the team too.
The kick out to Baynes for the brick 3 when they had a chance to cut it to single digits killed their momentum. That they couldn’t get a better look was the real problem tho.
I agree with you here. I think a swap for a game manager type would be ideal. They just need a competent distributor who takes what he is given and isn't trying to take over. I think moving Rozier is an obvious move at this point.
If someone had told me that Hardaway would be 4/15 from the field, and the Celtics would be down by 15 after 3 quarters, I would have laughed in their face.
Perhaps taking it straight to Robinson isn’t the best idea.
Tatum hammered. No call.
I think the turning on Stevens stuff is sheer lunacy. Must be what it is like to be a Pats fan when people are going nuts about BB. They’re 3-22 from 3 tonight there isn’t a coach in the league who doesn’t have their team shooting 3s.
Maybe that time but it isn’t like it has been successful.
Didn't everything start to turn shitty after Rozier's agent spoke out about his playing time?
