What’s amazing, and honestly a big knock on Brad, is that these games are so important yet they come out and play with a complete lack of urgency and effort. It’s pathetic to watch

Tatum at least doing a good job of finding Nesmith wide open. Love that. Two of those were near makes.

Meanwhile, Celtics are 1/8 from three. The heat are 6/13. There's the difference, basically.

Yup and they acted surprised that Miami likes to shoot 3s.

5 TOs and 1-8 from three for the Celts. Miami 6-13 from three and 7 for 10 from two

This team is finished.

The Raptors had it right. Toss this season away, try to get 1 of cade, Suggs and Mobley and get right back in it next year when covid/injuries don’t ruin everything.

It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if they get knocked out of the play in by hornets or wizards.

At this point, Nesmith making a name for himself and getting a full healthy offseason leading into next season is the most important thing happening on this team right now.

Tatum/Brown talking him up is huge.

Just wish Tatum had a Paul Pierce Elbow Problem (tm) this year.

Amazing how Nesmith looks nothing like he did in the first half of the season. A very promising turn of events.

Jimmy Butler doesn't even have to shoot for Miami to dominate this matchup.

As of now, this is the best case scenario. Get better lottery odds. This team isn’t doing shit this year. It’s been apparent for a while Now. Not enough talent and there’s a clear issue with the mindset/effort

Tatum hunting for better shots and passes now. When he plays with intent like this it's great.

I mean, do the hilariously optimistic posters here still think there’s a shot that this team does shit this year?

This is two almost must win games in a row, at home, where they’ve come out and got run off the fucking court. That is a major major issue

The thing that has me most excited about Nesmith is his aggressive attacks off close-outs. He's not a one-trick pony and he's exactly the sort of player they need to open the offense up for Jayson and Jaylen.

How long does Stevens get a pass for his team consistently not playing the right way?

Heat attacking Kemba relentlessly. We are doing the same with Herro.

Marcus Smart's offense the only thing keeping us in the game. Absolutely fucking hysterical.

What’s really sad is I have 0 idea how this team can improve next year.
Danny has his work cut out for him this offseason and his recent history doesn’t inspire much confidence
