    We have been playing our 2nd or 3rd stringers vs their starters for much of the 4th, and we gave up a 20-2 run and lots of turnovers. Is that really surprising and/or unnerving? Additionally, the refs have been horrible and yet we're still up by 16 with 3 1/2 minutes left. It's a long season. Let's keep testing, learning and getting better.

    Blake is great at filling up the stat sheet but not impacting the game in anyway.

    That Griffin “pick” was the equivalent of a ref heat check. Might as well see how much you can get away with.

    Umm yes, it's unnerving? We've given up 18 and 28 point leads and ultimately lost both games, the last two times we played on this floor. So yeah, giving up a 20-2 run, and letting them climb all the way back to down 10 points is concerning. If we miss those last 2 3's, and they made a couple, the game turns the other way, just like the Clippers and Lakers did.

    I haven’t heard that term in years. That would be perfect. BTW, Tommy says there is a disparity in free throws tonight.

    How can we be up 15-20 with a 23 ft disparity?

    Right, but it's an 82 game season. And when we are playing our 2nd/3rd team vs their starters...we are probably going to give up some points and look like shit. I guess I agree it is unnerving but it's not a case of the team needing to FUCKING WAKE UP or Brad needing to CALL TIMEOUT. Even with the shitty blown leads for LA teams, a little patience and perspective seems to make sense.

    Because he didn't. Griffin lost his balance and flopped, because he's Griffin.

    If they knew the FT discrepancy ahead of time would’ve been Detroit -10.

    Fuck that, if they're going to call a foul they might as well lean into it all the way and make it a clear path.

    First of all, I don't know what 2nd/3rd team you're talking about. Only 9 guys have played for the Celtics all night. The same 9 guys that played in the first quarter, played in the 4th quarter. Marcus Morris, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart are all starters. That's who was blowing the lead, not Brad Wanamaker and TimeLord.

    Second, you think it's ok to give up a 20-2 run, while turning the ball over 9 times in 6 minutes? Ever?

    Yeah, a little patience and perspective.

    Calling timeout in an 11 point game with 23 seconds to go?

    The refs may tag the Celtics with two or three personals and a couple T’s during the timeout. Puts Detroit right back in it.

    Gotta love them not even being in the bonus yet when trying to intentionally foul with 35 seconds left.

    There is nobody on this site saying Brad shouldn't raise his voice. You are better than this.

    He's implying that Brad isn't demonstrative enough, not calling out people here.

    Not sure that is the case. Its part of a larger discussion from the main board. For some reason, we have decided that eating our own is part of this whole gamethreading exercise. Even in victory.

    Hayward logging another of his top 10 games with 18 points, 5 boards, 8 assists.

    Second night of a back to back, depleted team against a team that was off last night, with shitty officiating---it's a win. Rest up during the break.

    Good win. Good momentum going into the ASB. This team is well positioned to finish the season strong and make some noise going into the post season.

    He had a bad shot, really bad, then turned it over...I think he came out ...subbed back in and had an awful lazy turnover, then it was vacation.
