I missed Game 2. How much credit does Mazzulla get for adjusting strategy to the team getting so many points in the paint, and how much was just game-flow/defense into offense/other things?
As someone who was at a bar with ESPN on a few days ago, I believe what you meant to ask is: Who is more to blame for the disastrous performance of the Celtics, Mazzulla or Tatum?

I'm going with this nice herbal tea. Currently 15-1 on Draft Kings. Great vs flu/cold symptoms*.

Pacers starting Ben Shepperd, adding a wing to replace Haliburton. Seems like they want to keep the TJ second unit intact, which makes some sense, he's had success against PP and other bench guys, Jrue will just eat him up/

Interesting that the line hasn’t really moved post-Haliburton being ruled out and Jrue ruled in. Hedging against the backs-against-the-wall mentality IND will have?

Probably line was set assuming Jrue and no Hali, and so what ultimately happened was where the line always was.

Not starting a PG against a team with both guards on the all-defense team could be a disaster. Time to pressure Indy from the inbounds pass.

i don’t think the offensive strategy changed much, the more obvious changes were defensively and they worked great.

Sheppard starting likely helps a bunch defensively - curious to see what they do the other way, guessing it’s a lot of Nembhard.

Cs made some changes to the defensive adjustments on matchups; CJM went to Brissett when Kornet was hurt; but a lot of it was Cs keeping IND in front of them on defense.

So some?

Don‘t see the foul there but at least they are calling some stuff both ways
