Between this and Memphis/Sacramento balling out, this is the worst Celtics season since Faverani was getting actual minutes.

This take seems to be slightly warm.
Oh, you think he’s in his prime, do you?

Al’s on the downside, which makes sense given his age, but there’s been a noticeable drop in his play. Apparently this constitutes a hot take after a quarter of a season or something.

Not sure I’ve ever been more shocked at a team with limitless expectations completely shitting the bed. I expected our 10th loss in February.

Enraging watching Tatum leave Wesley Matthews for that 3 for no fucking reason. Trust your fucking teammates you fucking idiot.

No way this team beats the Pels, so they're going to be below .500.

Hope Danny can work some trade magic after the 15th.

Maybe Brad will realize someday that he needs to protect his players and call out the refs. Ugh. Take the fucking fine already.

LOL, Scal "he called a quick jump ball there cuz he didn't want anything to escalate."

He could have, you know, called a FUCKING FOUL on the Mavs for over the back.

Need to just jettison Rozier ASAP. Send him packing to a bad team for a second and see what happens.

This is what happens when you call a horseshit game all night. The NBA should be embarrassed.

The worst thing that happened to this years team was making it as far as they did with last years team. Which has has caused some chemistry issues with the players coming back from injury. And now the players that played a prominent role in last years run have a diminished role this year and it’s has become a huge mess.

Some message is going to need to sent eventually and I am not sure what that will entail. A trade? Probably but fuck, I thought this team was set for this year and they are not. By a long shot. It just sucks.

Amazingly physical game, IMO, and somehow, the C's have 13 free throw attempts, which is less than their putrid season average.

I resolved years ago to stop blaming refs and with a few exceptions have stood by that, but this had the potential to be a good game and bad decisions by the refs magnified a few solid Dallas possessions and basically ended the game in the span of about 90 seconds.

Have to think some finger pointing inside the locker room is going to start soon if it hasn’t already. This is quickly devolving into a disaster.

47% from the field, 35% from 3. Mavs only made one more shot but made six more three pointers. Mavs took a lot more free throws but only made one more.

I don't even think the difference is effort or reffing. I think our shot profile fucking sucks. These idiots are taking a billion mid-range shots and it's losing them games to terrible teams. Mavs took 13 more three pointers. There's your fucking game.
