I feel like this is the equivalent of watching the 2011 Sox, not with the same chicken & beer vibes, but from the talent vs performance.

Agreed with JCizzle above I hate being this cynical watching them...hopefully I'm laughing about this bump in the road come May.
I'd rather think of it as the '04 team playing a few months of .500 ball before blowing everybody's nips off come the end of the season.

Wish the bench unit would push the pace more off misses. Hate seeing them slow down into the half court offense when they have such a hard time generating open looks.

Fouls are 16 on the C's and 15 on the Grizz.

Of course, foul shots are 22-11 Grizzlies. It's uncanny how often that happens to the C's. The refs are so good about keeping the total foul numbers close.

Just tuning in. What did I miss?

Celtics getting beat on the boards and at the charity stripe. Down by 8 going into the 4th, they’ve got Memphis right where they want them, right?

I'd like to see this second unit with old head Wanamaker at PG instead of the Herky Jerky Man.

I’d completely revamp the rotations. The way it is now makes it so hard to come back from deficits. You give Kyrie 8 minutes to make magic happen. Would rather start the 4th with Kyrie, give him a breather mid quarter then bring him back for the final 6. The extended non-staggered bench minutes just kill the flow.

Every miss it’s like how quickly can I get up the floor to jack another three. So dumb. The philosophy sucks.

So the number 3 draft pick has 6 points off the bench for Boston, and the number 45 pick has 19 points off the bench for Memphis
