    To PE, or not To PE - that is the question

    I believe Marks is saying they currently owe 30.3M in tax, which lines up with Smith’s estimate of how far over the line they are salary-wise.

    I'd rather go after Mitchell when Utah blows it up, Ainge can do us a solid like McHale did for him.

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    That Pistons team went back to the Finals the year after they won the title and lost in 7 to the Spurs. I get your point and it's hard to make it to the Finals, but if this core stays together I'd be surprised if they don't get to another one in the next 3-4 years. If this roster is healthy and...

    Some of the turnover problem is decision making, I definitely think both Tatum and Brown (and the rest of the team) can improve on the passes to nowhere. Agree on the live dribble turnovers though, I don't think Tatum or Brown will ever be an above average ball handler.

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    Hurts to be 6 minutes from going up 3 games to 1 and end up losing in 6, but quite frankly I was happy with the season as soon as the eliminated the Nets. Plus I'm pretty sure that if Middleton doesn't blow out his knee they lose to the Bucks in 5 or 6 and we're talking about how great they...

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    Brad's whole mission this offseason has to be to find a plus shooter that can hold up defensively. I don't care if it takes all the picks. They just run out too many lineups with 3 non-shooters and it kills the spacing.

    If they could just cutdown the turnovers they'd be unstoppable.

    They only have to list injuries that potentially impact the player's active status for the game. If there's no chance he's going to miss the game, then there's no requirement to put him on the injury report.

    Their bench scores, ours can't buy a bucket. That's the story.

    Kind of feel like Tatum has to take 40 shots tonight

    This lineup just doesn't have enough offense if Pritchard isn't hitting shots

    6/10--NBA Finals G4, Golden State @ Celtics

    In the second half of the 4th right before the b, Tatum missed a layup and Brown missed a fallaway when they felt contact and heaved it up assuming a whistle. They really didn't adjust well to the whistle getting swallowed in the 4th, and as is often the case with this team if they think they're...

    Can't give up 15 offensive rebounds in a Finals game. They just failed to execute late. It was a concern in close games all year, unsurprising that it eventually cost them.

    6/10--NBA Finals G4, Golden State @ Celtics

    Can't say they didn't have opportunities, it's too bad that their 3 main role players are below average shooters and they're the only team in basketball that runs their late game offense in a way that their best 2 players never get a shot.
