Theis misses a layup at one end. Three-point play for Warren at the other.

So it goes this season.

Ah, the third-quarter meltdown ... as predictable as the swallows at Capistrano.

Another garbage third-quarter against the Pacers. It gets frustrating when the Celtics make the same mistakes against the same team in the same building in a two day period

I’m not putting Brad on the hot seat exactly, but what the fuck are these rotations? Why is the team playing completely uninspired ball again? Feels bad, man.

They don’t have enough good players right now. Like when a manager has to keep cycling through relievers until he finds one who can get outs, they rotate through Green/Semi/Grant with really no rhyme or reason in totally unclear rotations/roles.

They literally don’t have an offense. If you want to get on the coaching for anything, it should be that. There are no sets, no nothing.

10 minutes into the second half and the guy who had 16 points and 4 steals on Sunday finally gets on the court for the first time in the half.

I think the Theis + Thompson and Pritchard + Teague pairings are abominations that should not occur on a basketball court in 2020. They don't make a lot of sense.

This is looking like a coaching problem.
I don’t really know what to make of the fact that Brad’s best coaching job was arguably the Thomas/Bradley/Smart/Crowder team.

They have better players now but have lost a lot of the scrap that defined that roster.

They are on pace to score only 2 points less than their average last year when they were 12th in points. It's never going to be pretty with second units, its a lot of ups and downs. The D is the issue, plus they are just flat out making all their shots
