No look Smart to Brown for three was heartbreakingly beautiful.

Smart was giving it to Tatum pretty good going into the tunnel. Must be trying to wake him up.

I know the D isn’t going to be the same with TL and Al out but you can’t have plays where you just neglect to cover guys and give free lanes to the rim.

Isn't that Walt Frazier sitting in?

Yeesh, Celts defense is embarrassing again. The rebound deficit is 7. Tatum seems to be pouting half the time, and his 3 turnovers haven't helped.

Especially when the guy with the free lane to the rim still pulls up and passes it to a wide open guy.

I dunno. Maybe. He sucks. And the PBP guy (I’m terrible with names) has that way of indicating his annoyance without letting it in his voice. The last minute sounded like the guy was doing hits and trying to pretend he wasn’t.

when I guy is on the floor with the ball opponents can basically kick, scratch, and claw w/out a whistle...the NBA is odd

Word. Thanks.

I’m 98% that Breen wishes Frazier would read the notes they are given pre-game. He sorta sideways mentions it at times…

Figured. Thx.
ESPN article a few days ago

https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/insider/story/_/id/34914249/nba-teams-scoring-historic-rates-offensive-surge

Nearly two weeks into the 2022-23 NBA season, offenses are performing at rates never before seen so early in the schedule. How much of that is a result of the league's rule change penalizing transition take fouls?

As the season tipped off, I highlighted the new rule imported from the G League and its success in reducing fouls to stop fast breaks. But it was difficult to tell how much impact a similar rule would have because G League players never got in the same habit of intentionally fouling, which had become common in the NBA.

Now, we've had a reasonable sample to see the rule in action. We've also had a series of high scores. Entering Sunday's play, half the league's teams were averaging at least 115 points per game, something not seen in the NBA over a full season since eight of the 14 teams accomplished it in the 1969-70 season.

How do you have five guys nowhere near a long rebound but also nowhere near being able to defend the outlet.
