The best and toughest teams have this exact ability, that you can play your best ball against them for a bit and get them on their back foot and think the game is there for the taking and then they just flip a switch and it’s over before you even knew the run started.

They’re finally there. They can get away with coasting for stretches of these regular season games then flipping the switch and Geno Timing people whenever they want. Except the Bulls.

The overall difference in quality of players 1-15 between last year and this year is just night and day... Joe has so many options to bring in to switch things up when things aren't working. And players like Brogdon or White that are just super solid and could start on a lot of other teams.

It's 0230 on 26 Nov here in Hawaii. Transplanted New Englander here, a longtime member who reads daily but posts rarely. Just finished scrolling through this Celtics game thread, (wasn't able to follow the game online) and wanted to commend the posters for a thread that had a great combination of passion, technical sports knowledge, juvenile vulgarity, sarcasm, and academic erudition, often within the same exchange. It was a pleasure to read (at my age I'm easily amused and rarely shocked). Now back to the WC and Breakfast with Gazza.

I keep thinking of an interview MTV did ones with Flea after a Rock’n’Jock where he just fucking rained long range hoops down where he said something to the effect, “It’s really not right to play people of my size in these games… because we just dominate.”

I have no idea how Brad pulled this long bench, but I’m a sucker for narrative and I love watching the Bench Mob kick ass.

It's partly on Brad, but Mazzulla gets credit for developing and using guys as well.
