We re not a good match for the Nets . Their shooting and ours is two worlds apart in terms of consistency. KD is shooting like Curry right now , this seems to give confidence to others on their team . They are gun slingers of jumpers …assassins of offense . Having a KD makes everybody else more comfortable and thus better. ….they can lean on him.
Our Celtics are too streaky to face them in a series . Defense might win a game or two , but they can still shoot lights out game after game and will ultimately win.
Celtics can shot one or two decent games , but when pressure is on , These Celtics just go cold and can’t move the ball , team play to create easy shots , bu5 they still have knock down the easy shots even if they create them….smh . which seems to be a on going problem…..with the construction of the Celtics teams since KG and PP.
KD and company puts the crazy pressure to score on the Celtics players , he scores every time he touches the ball. ….this causes a million threes by Celtics trying to overcome KD scoring every time he touches the ball. Panic , poor passing , rushed shots , low confidence….etc sets in and the game gets out of reach.
nets force you into a offensive contest that is almost unwinable without an equally good shooting performance from Boston. Our scorers can not seem to match the offensive pressure the Nets put on them to score.
If Irving was playing , it would have been over even sooner.
