Ugh....


Gary Washburn: #Celtics list Jaylen Brown as OUT for tomorrow against #Mavericks with hamstring tightness. Josh Richardson (foot) is questionable.  – via Twitter

"Boston hasn't lost a game since" is a funny thing to say when it's been two games

Celtics are 4-6, their worst 10-game start since the 2014-‘15 season, which they started the same.

The team is 20th in ORTG, 13th in DRTG, 20th in NETRTG, 22nd in EFG%, and 21st in TS%.

Udoka aimed for the team’s pace to be better. They’re currently 22nd.

What are those numbers over the last three games? Those numbers 3 games ago were in the 28th-30th numbers. 3 games later they are in the 20th-22nd numbers. If they keep playing well, what will those numbers look like 3-4 games from now?

i agree. the last 3 games pleasantly surprised me. definite change, positive change, in many areas.

i am really curious how the team comes out against toronto, a very good team that whomped the celtics earlier this year, 115-83, though it was close for the first half.

On the bright side, the Lakers are showing their age and overall roster flaws already. Several key guys out for extended time including Lebron, and Westbrook is playing poorly, 1-13 last night in a blowout loss where they needed him to step up.

Boston has a 97.1 defensive rating when Al Horford is on the floor, that would be 2nd in the NBA.

It's 111.9 without him, that would be 28th.

  • The Truth
I was so exicted about Tatum saying that he wants to be on one of the all-defense teams, I just didn’t realize that he was aiming for the 32nd all-defensive team.

I am trying to be less critical of our team, but it’s hard not to be.
I loved our roster moves, I loved that Brad steped down (or up).
Ime has dissapointed me the most, nothing changed for us, all our problems stayed and even became worse. Our switch everything routine is mind blowing, how can a professional coach be okay with the game plan that leaves an opponent allstar guard or winger isolated with our center.

Tatum is a horrific defender, he doesn’t get critisized at all for that. He gets blown by by the smalls, overpowered by the bigs, and his off ball defense and overhelping is atrocious.

But i am still not blaming a single player for the start we had, it is the coach i am concerned about.
My quick fix plan:
-stop switching everything, be selective about it. Use the fact that we have some great guard defenders like smart, josh and dennis.
-let smart and dennis be more on ball true point guard ball handlers
-entice the drive and kick game
-stop with the 3pt love fest.

Does anyone else wonder where the Jaylen Brown injury came from?  I don't recall hearing about this at all in the offseason, matter of fact, only thing I recall is the wrist healing and as soon as he was working out, how good he looked.

Just curious, where did I miss this "small" piece of news?

Awesome. That would explain why he wasn’t on the floor for the last 4 minutes of the Dallas game. Oh, wait...  ???

It happened during the Miami game. They even replayed it several times. He slipped while driving to the basket. It didn’t look that bad but he was ruled out for the rest of the game.
