Doris now commenting that the Celtics aren’t running actions…

We got this. The shots will start to drop. The defense will ratchet up. The Mavs will cool off and get exhausted and we will win this game.

We have seen this show before.

There couldn't be more blood in the water. I couldn't be more disappointed with pretty much everyone but Tatum and Al. Brown running the offense is like a time machine back 3 years ago

The Celts have taken it to the rim a ton.. the idea that they haven't been aggressive is just making excuses for bad officiating.
They can’t hit a shot. Keep those green colored glasses on though. God forbid anyone criticizes a Celtic performance

It’s early but the bench has given us negative VORP tonight. Totally worthless.

This feels like it’s more likely to be 35 vs 10. Just an absolute dog of an effort.

Celtics looks are fine - but 31% shooting and 21% from three is awful. I see slightly better Dallas contests, but this offensively is to a fair degree about bad Celtics shooting

Defense and rebounding are a different story---Celtics really not doing either well.

A familiar reality - we need to dial up the defense and stick to our process offensively.

This game still has two and a half quarters to go. 20 points is not insurmountable in the remaining part of the second. Figger it oot.

I hope to be proven wrong.... But this feels like the typical Game 2 up 1-0 letdown this team loves to do. Just game 4 up 3-0 instead.

Admittedly, this is preferable.

If they can keep it around like 15 then we’re OK but they are getting worked on both ends. It needs to start out if this timeout.

It’s still early but I think they’re cooked tonight. When this team no shows, which they don’t do often, they really no show. This is a carbon copy of those Bucks and Clippers regular season games. They have nothing tonight but hey up 3-0 it is what it is.

The looks are markedly worse quality both at the rim and from three. They're not getting rhythm 3s almost at all.

I’m shocked at this, and it’s not what you think.

All the narrative about the C’s almost blowing a 21 point lead they’re going to answer by forcing the Mavs to blow a 21+ point lead.

I’m shocked, and I imagine the Celtics are as well, that they have to play *this* poorly to let the Mavs build that lead. I think they call the whole thing off here and just start playing again.

Too many shots off 0-1 pass. These are the good not great shots Tatum was on the team about in G3. And just not executing in the paint at all.

Can we let this fucking game get to halftime at least before the doom and gloom?
