If I never see the C's try to post up Kanter down low again, I'll be ok with it. I have no numbers to back it up, but I think it turns into 4 turnovers for every point.

4 C's around the ball and Rondo beats you to the ball.. and two great passes.. how could you not like that guy when he's trying.

Since Rondo always kills us, he's looked bad most of the year, right? I need to temper my viewing experience

Semi reminding me why I don’t like him. Nobody else on the team gets as lost as him on defense.

Kanter just made so many bad plays in a row. Stripped, got taken to the rack, didn't catch the pocket pass, got taken to the rack. Just brutal.

Offense went to shit at the end of the quarter with Brown and Tatum both of the bench. Too much Marcus iso and too many non-threats on the floor. It is times like those that I think the Celtics really need Hayward to settle them done.

Kanter is a disaster
Getting obliterated every time down the court on D. He is unplayable in the playoffs IMO but a lot of people here love him for some reason. You put him out there against the Bucks or Raptors & the game is over before it even started.

Obviously, missing Kemba's scoring is bad. Missing Kemba's everything is bad. But the way it forces Smart into the starting lineup just devastates the second unit.

He could probably do that if Marcus ever passed the ball haha

Marcus Smart being pushed into the starting lineup doesn’t help. Missing Kemba pretty badly so far. Would be great to have his shot creating ability this afternoon.
No doubt. But Danny could have tried to add another shooter for the bench, too, given that the C's virtually never field their preferred starting five.

Need to spend the rest of the season getting Grant ready. Should be feeding him minutes in games like this.

Problem is that Smart doesn't give up the ball for three possessions in a row and doesn't allow that to happen.

Lakers and refs don't know you can't block the ball off the backboard?

edit: and the NBA gives us another example of wtf with no explanation.
