    It's time to go contrarian - everything is negative. Apparently the nail in the coffin was in Toronto. We're changing things up - starting game threads early and removing the negativity.

    3/1 is the 19th anniversary of Rick Pitino's infamous rant.

    We're turning the page. This team, while insanely frustrating over the last week in particular is not going to shoot as badly as they have lately. It's a make or miss league and things are going to feel awful when you shoot 20% or worse and can't settle into a defense. Here's the last several games. That will revert to the mean. That'll inspire some better defense and less hero ball. We're going on a run.

    Portland: 18% from 3
    Toronto: 20%
    Chicago: 34%
    Milwaukee: 35% (1 point game where we left thinking we'd beat them in a playoff series)

    Takes a lot of nails to really keep the coffin shut.

    Well, the coffin-nail is the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade.

    Hey, maybe the problem this season is the half-hearted alliteration things we've been doing. They ain't working. Change the mojo.

    Morris starting tonight: he has incriminating info on Brad & Danny apparently.

    Do the best job you can about that fine young man Brad Beal.


    In case you missed the BS pod with Tatum a while back, Beal used to walk Tatum home from school when they were kids(something like that).

    I like the defensive effort so far. It has paid off.

    What do you think Silver and Wyc are talking about? "No, Adam, I can't even remember the last time I was in Florida."

    Is there a Drew Hanlen for finishing at the rim?

    Yeah, Sloan. Bill Simmons had a pretty good interview with Silver that was streamed today.

    It’s beating a dead horse but it really sucks that Gordon got hurt last year. He is(was) super talented and a glue guy. I think if he was playing at a high level this Cryrie cancer behavior never happens.

    Ugh Morris is so bad.

    Also the three guard lineup sucks, still.

    The Wizards are really bad and I'm not impressed with Boston's play.

    Just another awful disjointed 2nd quarter. It’s Groundhog Day with this team and the only difference is quality of opponent

    1 point game now: this is my one C's game in person this year and this is like a 2006/07 crowd. They got nothing, no reason to be excited.

    If we could throw an entry pass we might have 12 more wins than we do right now

    Least enjoyable Celtics team in such a long time. This is Ricky Davis and Mark Blount level crap.

    Morriss, Rozier and KI on court together is a karmaic nightmare.

    I fully expect Brad to flip the script here in the second half. Maybe bench some of the low effort guys. Maybe not run a KI, Smart, Rozier back court. Can't wait to see what he comes up with!

    Hayward with 0 shots. He needs to start shooting. The team can't do anything if he's afraid.

    This team makes grown men weep. If they were playing a real opponent, they'd be down 22 right now.

    It's a long season and you can't really expect them to put in more than 5 or 6 minutes of effort in each half.
