    Don’t know what the play was supposed to be but if Kyrie has to come back to the ball going away from the hoop it’s already bad.

    Ref ball. The Tatum dunk play looms large. And all the other shitty calls and non calls.

    Multiple fouls but you aren't getting those on the road at the end of regulation.

    Chances to win this game came and went. Good game, get better.

    No ref in the league is putting the road team on the line to win short of an assault-level foul, unfortunately.

    Kyrie’s post game should be sweet.

    You can't say that around these parts. The C's lost by one point (even though they were a 5.5 point underdog) because Stevens cannot call plays and Kyrie is already packed for NY. You need to be reeducated on this stuff RA.

    If Rozier takes Kyrie's spot for the final play, we win.

    I thought the same thing live...watching the replay I think Giannis would have either stolen the pass to Horford or blocked the shot. He was in perfect position to effect the play.

    Pierce didn't have the quality teammates in the pre-KG/Ray, post-Antoine years though.

    The Morris foul would have been 1 free throw and the ball, right?

    Really tough play to execute with a big guarding the inbounds and Giannis roaming the middle. Feel like you’re just better off keeping it simple. Kyrie inbounds to Horford screen handoff and go.

    I’ve evolved to avoiding game threads until the game is basically over! The playoffs last year were a wake up call.

    I love how the Celtics are defending Giannis when it counts. Taking away the paint and daring him to shoot.

    It's not like he stopped doing it in the KG/Ray years. That was Doc's last second play call forever.

    Btw, the C's shot like warmed over garbage all game and lost by one point on the road. If Hayward and Ben Hogan's BAE were available, I think the outcome is different. If Kyrie isn't rusty, the outcome is likely different. The C's are a tough match-up for the Bucks and they should want no part of them.

    Oh, and Marcus Smart should be DPOY. Not just the strip of Giannis but he was lockdown on Middleton and Brogdon when he guarded them. The guy, in a non-contract year, is playing the best basketball of his career.

    I completely agree. Only negative is that we can’t expect the ball to consistently find Al like it did today on offense. While he was consistently moving/finding gaps, the ball seemed to come his way often.

    I’d expect as we get closer to the playoffs Rozier’s mjnutes will keep coming down. He is really killing them at a time when the Celtics should have big advantages out there. More Kyrie/Smart/Hayward at the point and running the offense through Al as we get into the playoffs.

    Hot garbage by the refs - Mook hooked and grabbed (because he had his man beat) and Kyrie fouled - I can assure you Giannis or Lebron gets that called all day long

    Can’t wait for 2 min report

    That no call is almost as bad as the Nola-Rams game...and for the same reason, defender got beat.

    Nba might apologize for that one

    Five seed on 2/21. If you told me that at the beginning of the season I’d have assumed some kind of catastrophic injuries.

    Bucks look pretty exploitable if you run the offense well and don’t miss a truckload if open looks. They are long but they also don’t have Danny Green, who is the Dumbledore to my Voldemort.

    Sadly these gamethreads aren't. I read a lot of posts that claim to know Kyrie Irving's mindset. I mean, I have watched his entire career and unless he is clowning on the bench or yelling at someone, I cannot tell what he is thinking. In fact, even when he is clowning or yelling, I am not sure of his mindset.

    These gamethreads are negative cesspools during the games for me. And I cannot blame people for being frustrated but it just isn't for me. And apparently some others here too.

    I really don’t understand. The game threads are awful and you have to avoid them, but when the game is over you can’t help but show up and talk about how shitty they are?

    As for Mr. Kyrie “the NBA is no fun” Irving, I don’t think he knows what’s going on inside his head.

    This gamethread wasn’t even bad, tho. It was a pretty ugly game of basketball.

    Trivia question. When was the last time a team (1) was away; (2) had more than 100 FGA at the same time the home team had less than90 FGA; and (3) lost the game?

    This is pretty rare from what I can tell.

    This actually made me chuckle. But the Celtics outscored the Bucks in the third tonight so the narrative doesn’t work in this case.
    With 7 offensive boards, 5 assists, and 3 blocks to go along with 21 points and a team high +12. Hardly average.

    How many teams have attempted 0 free throws in the 4th Quarter this season?

    yes. technical foul. I guess the counter-argument is that Kyrie set a moving screen which is what we'll probably get in the last 2-minute report tomorrow
