I know this is the NBA and a good team just needs to keep it close then try during the 4th. But, Celtics are sleep walking, right now.

It's frustrating to watch them throw up all these threes when they're having such success penetrating.

Someone on OKC just slammed the ball going to the bench where is the T?
Vonleh threw his hands in the air in frustration after being called for an illegal screen. I was shocked he wasn't assessed a technical.

I'm starting to think this ain't the C's night. They don't seem especially inspired, and OKC is locked in.

I know Mazz isn't worried about the shit defense yet, but he better start working on it sometime soon.

Yeah he's done a great job with the offense, but the D seems like they're just waiting for Rob to get back to fix everything. They were a great defensive team last year with Rob, but they were also a pretty good one without him.

The defense is basically middle of the pack resting guys on b2bs and missing its lynchpin. Not that worried. I’d prefer more aggression defending the 3pt line and challenging shots, and more turnovers of course but I think it’s not as bad as many are making it out to be.

Agree, and it has been much better as of late tonight notwithstanding. OKC plays with a ton of pace and is going to score a bunch of points, and the Celtics don't have a ton of bounce to their step tonight. It's November, shit happens.

This is the 2nd time they've had 3 games in 4 nights already this season. Seems like a schedule loss.

Small-ish sample still I suppose, but Jaylen's defensive metrics are legit bad this year.

He has been a pretty average player overall, not great for someone averaging 25 PPG.

he was the weakest link among the starters last season.

how were his metrics versus the other 4 then?
