Now Schroder gets Romeo up in the air. Rough stretch for the rookie (and for the C's).

Kemba is 1 for 7, and the C's are on the verge of getting blown out.

Celtics on fire from three in the first quarter. Can't buy one the last eight minutes, while OKC continues to successfully attack mismatches on p/r.

Thunder have taken twice as many free throws as Boston, probably because they've been twice as aggressive with the ball.

Ugly. I don't know why the Celtics never seem to try a zone, at least to mix up the looks. OKC seems to be doing all right with it.

Usually the adjustment in these types of games is "play harder, do everything a bit better." Zone doesn't fix the fact that they've been repeatedly not executing small details on most defensive trips.

Loose on D, settling a bit on O. Also had like 8 shots rim out or hit back rim and bounce out instead of in.

Kemba and the Jays need to be more efficient.

Boston needs to play solid defense, and need to play more team oriented defense. Donovan picked their defense apart, using p/r to get size or quickness advantages.

Ball movement leads to open three for Brown and he buries it!

This NBA-TV guy is bitching about the officiating, when OKC has gotten almost every call.
