    They looked good in the philly game. They just dont bring it every night especially when Kyrie plays. That's not on Kyrie btw.

    He's 1/2 from the field. Rozier is 1/9. Yeah, I'll take no-shooting defense playing Marcus over chuck it up and miss Terry everyday.

    Rebounds are 45 to 29 BTW.

    Smallball just isn't working.

    I think this particular roster is kind of unique And needs a head coach who is an ass kicker...that’s just not Brad.
    When I think about it after games i stil think that this team will make the Finals...then I watch and I think there’s no way they make it past the 2nd round

    Remember after that one game, when brad said he was going to use Al and a big more often. I know Benhogan does. I miss that Brad.

    He's been atrocious, torched on D and useless on offense. He also has had 3 "shoulda-been" turnovers on passes directly to the Bulls.

    I agree Terry has been bad too, just an odd game to be clamoring for more Smart.

    I could be wrong but it looked like Morris was fouled there.

    sure do, Brad said it in a post-game presser.

    Brad used it against Memphis, it worked...never to be seen again

    Maybe they'll hold another team meeting.

    Hayward, Brown, and Thies should all be playing over Morris.

    This loss is on Brad.

    It's a lot easier to beat the Bulls when you try in the 2nd qt. As opposed to down 10 with under 2 minutes to play.

    I’m incredibly interested to see the post game comments....if Marcus Morris complains or says anything bad about his teammates, this season is over

    But the second quarter is where they attempt bullshit showtime passes and take contested circus shots. Are they supposed to do that in the 4th qt?

    Lauri is 7 feet with a high release and has taken most of his shots over Morris or an even smaller player on switches all night. Those aren’t tough shots for a guy with his shooting touch, he’ll take those all night. Just an asinine approach to this matchup. You lose any advantage of going small when Morris has been such a zero on offense lately.

    I think we are due for Kyrie to sit out 3 games with an injury.

    It was so nice of the Cs to start trying down 20 with 15 minutes to go


    too little, too late

    I truly believe Brad is afraid of Morris. Morris is killing the locker room. I'm 100% convinced

    With the scorers on this team, they should be able to move the ball and exploit matchups, but they don’t really seem to do that. I don’t get their offense at all.

    Pretty sad to lose the Bulls game sandwiched between the Bucks and Raptors game.

    The schedule is about to get rough.

    Only one Celtic played more than 31 minutes. At least everyone got their reps again.

    How will Kyrie and Mook blame the young guys? Can’t wait to find out....will Marcus blame the young players for wearing unlucky numbers and talk about how wearing 13 is pathetic and doesn’t spark team unity?

    The utter predicability of them just sucking shit for a large stretch in the 2nd or 3rd quarter where they clearly just can’t be bothered to even try to play good basketball is incredibly frustrating. It’s not that they go cold, it’s not that the other team gets hot, it’s not the refs. They just stop taking care of the ball or really putting in any degree of effort whatsoever.

    I agree. Purely eye test but I think they play better as a unit without Kyrie. The playoff 2018 squad plays really really well together.

    I don't disagree with you there. I would take him out of the starting lineup, start Jaylen or Gordon, and give Morris 15-20 min max as an offensive spark off the bench (his original role).

    I know it's a contract year for him, but if Morris complains, I'd just get rid of him.

    5 seed looks about right.

    Just hope the Pacers are the 4 seed

    Giving up 126 points to one of the worst teams in the league is inexcusable. The difference between this years team and last years is that last years would have won this game. Even with the horrific 2nd quarter they would have actually locked down on defense in the 2nd half instead of trying to outscore the other team through points.

    Rozier continues to be a massive negative.
    We need Baynes back.

    Frustrating lack of consistency. Ultimately they should turn it up a notch in the playoffs - as we see in big games - but this isn’t the mental toughness we need to be seeing.

    If this loss doesn't lead to some sort of coaching strategy/philosophy change then this season is irredeemably fucked. This is almost nightmarish levels of banging heads against a wall and feebly hoping something changes.

    This could have been posted a half dozen times over the last couple months. The head against the wall has been going on for awhile now.
