Brad's philosophies are starting to grate on me.
I'm waiting for someone to come in and post "Don't worry guys, every team in the NBA makes runs," or "the average margin of victory is 3.1 so we're still doing good."
Settling for mid range jumpers isn't going to cut it.
Ah finally the 6 minute mark arrives.
The 3rd quarter effort is truly amazing to watch
Who? Brad can't play him yet. He needs to wait until about 3 minutes left, so he can then play him the entire fourth quarter, and then the vets won't get mad that Jaylen played more than 30 minutes.
he doesn't appear to be here tonight
Celtics’ third quarter defense getting in the way of the Clippers’ tanking effort.
Offense is back to iso.
Why did they empty all the trash cans in the Garden onto the court and light it on fire?
with Theis in there we may see some screens/picks on offense instead of 5 guys standing around the perimeter watching 1 guy go ISO
Followed by a lot of superfluous shooting and explosions and “I love it when a plan comes together.”
Can't buy a call this half.
Much like Horford, he needed a night off.
Even the great Jaylen Brown can't do anything right in this quarter
It all makes sense now. They stop serving milk at the Garden in the second half!
Two bigs! Lets go!
If Kyrie is out for a couple weeks, the good news is that the epic beatings that are in store for this team on the road will put an end to the madness of the "This team is better without Kyrie" talk radio callers.
I have no idea what this means but I like it.
And there's the shit that happens when you let a team back into the game. Williams fires a horrible shot from deep and it goes. Saw about 3 of those at the end of the Lakers game.
What a fuckshow.
The Celtics are like the Hare from the Tortoise and the Hare, but if they raced a bunch of times and the Hare kept losing the same way every time.
Tommy is disgusted. He can't believe he came back for this.
We absolutely suck at shooting
Gorman just said this is a forgettable 3rd quarter. Wonder what he would say about the third quarter vs the Lakers.
This team is ass.
Points by quarter: 43, 31, 12
Clippers: 20, 33, 28
B.A. was a huge milk drinker on the show. And Mr T promoted it during and after the shows run.
Celtics scored 12 points in the 3rd. Yikes.
I mean I was joking in my original post. This is fucking absurd.
I'm seriously losing hope in Brad Stevens. He just has no feel for in game coaching. When the shit hits the fan, he just starts trying everything, hoping something works.
Wow I watched a lot of that show and I have no recollection of that.
You're first post in this thread is the post of the year, IMO.
They’d put the knockout drops in the milk when they needed to get him in a plane.
We are at home, supposedly a championship contender, and we're playing a team full of players who don't even know each other's names yet.
Thank God for the foul away from the ball, because there was no chance MaMo was going to not shoot it there. He was going straight from the defensive rebound to the shot on the other end.
What do you want him to do when everyone sucks?
WTF is Morris doing down there? He's spinning around in circles.
Hey look, a coach who knows to call timeout when a run starts to happen.
That’s right! He hated flying!
Nothing at this point. The damage has already been done. But, if he can't get this team to not suck, then what exactly is he there for?
If he has to coach effort, this team isn't going anywhere they want to go anyways.
I was trying to find a clip of that one where he’s falling out of the plane still drugged. A classic.
I’m looking for a blistering start. I’d like to see the guys in green moving the ball to the open man, hitting their looks, and building a double digit lead. CHECK
Then I’d like to see some aimless laziness injected into the game. Some half-assed heroball where everyone sort of treats it like an intramural game. CHECK
Then once the Clippers creep back into, I’d like to see some real heroball. The higher effort stuff from KI and Tatum. No more sleepwalking. CHECK
When that fails to put the Clippers away, I’d like to see the team finally revert in the last five minutes to playing with effort and focus much like they did in opening the early lead. Working on it.
The rest remains to be seen.
I don't expect anyone to read this academic piece on leads in sports but here is the money shot on NBA games from the conclusion section:
I was worried about the sun rising. You’ve restored all my hope.
I wish I had given them more than five minutes at the end.
Mamo has two fouls when the player ran into him and he got called... his hands are straight up or back.
How do you pronounce Harrell's first name, phonetically?
