    Celtics horrible in close games this season

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    Dallas 9 fourth quarter FTs, Boston three, including two misses by TL. Dallas handled final possessions of quarters properly, like a well coached team does. Boston didn’t.

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    Boston was getting stops by guarding the screener with Brown, who would then guard Doncic when Tatum got picked. As soon as Theis ended up on Doncic, the Celtics were in trouble. The game winner was pure Doncic. Neamith should have played him to go toward the middle, where he had bigger help...

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    Celtics 29-47 from two, and only 12-39 from three. When they went inside, they scored. Brown, Kemba, Tatum 9-29 from three. Doncic, Richardson, Brunson 13-19 from deep. Why not play offensive aggressively all game, like they did in the last three minutes? This is a very disappointing team.

    Jaylen has been iffy in the paint since his knee problem. At the beginning of the season he was exploding off the court before launching his shot.

    Kemba: only 32% of his buckets are assisted, and only 45% of his threes. Rozier is 60 and 80%. He would be much less an iso scorer than Kemba. I thing the Jays are best served by playing with three point shooters. While it would be a luxury to have a 10 apg PG, it’s not necessary, since they...

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Considering how soft the Celtics paint defense has been thus season, I can overlook a few defensive mistakes by TL, who defends the rim well. As he gets more PT, TL is cutting down on the lapses. Hopefully when he’s fully comfortable in knowing what to do at all times, he can turn up his...

    In hindsight, Ainge would have been better off extending draftees Rozier and Olynyk, and keeping Crowder, instead of the three stars that walked away as free agents. Rozier, JB, JT, Smart, Theis, with KO, Crowder, TL, PP off the bench would be a potent team.

    Brad needs to use his timeouts when a big lead is slipping away. This team needs possession by possession coaching

    Allowing Melli to reset late on that key jump ball was a big mistake by the Celtics.
