Hive mind: How much of the problems on offense are bad team basketball and how much is that they haven’t been able to shoot for shit tonight?

I don't mind that Luke Kornet doesn't play, because he's clearly limited, but was it really necessary, then, for Brad Stevens and Mazzulla to gush in preseason about how high they were on him?

Wow the defense has been pretty trashy thus far. While I'm fine with focusing on offense to start the regular season then expending more energy and upping the D intensity heading down the stretch into the playoffs, this may be a bit much.

Shooting was fine in the first quarter, but the C's weren't defending then, either. So when they cooled off, everything changed.

The size issue on this team is not sustainable over 82 games. You can survive for a short burst but no way this holds up over the long haul. They need to do something and fast.

That was capital D dumb from Grant, but still... it's not like he realized the ref was standing there.

Does Draymond get ejected for that?
If it was Draymond, they’d sit her in a chair at half court in front of a full house and ask her what she thought should happen while broadcasting her home address, email address, and phone number live on television.

Tatum and Brown playing the entire second half. Flashbacks to last year. They are gassed and can't keep up.

This was an odd one. Terrible combination of going ice cold despite getting a lot of good looks, getting badly abused on the glass, and getting bent the fuck over by the officials.

You forgot the matador defense.
And the complete lack of rim protection, so it was way too easy once Chicago got into the paint. Get better soon, Rob.

I hope Joe gives Kornet some minutes going forward. He’s not good but at least he’s huge. Vonleh is both not good and undersized.

I mean, how many teams have a combo like Vuc and Drummond?
Not many but I am not sure that’s even the point. There are some. Without Rob, the options on the team to play center are embarrassing.
Noah Vonleh’s getting guaranteed rotation minutes. Better players are getting the same minutes or less simply because Vonleh is big and basically has to play.
