Brown is most likely hurt too. Awesome decision making to ignore the depth we have and play hurt guys instead.

So idk, maybe play Hauser a bit? Muscala?

I'm not calling these guys "game changers" but I really can't see how these guys can't provide any value even for spot minutes off the bench. If we're trying to win games by hitting 3s, what's the harm in putting Hauser in there while the others brick shots? Now if you're telling me you're focusing on defense, and you play like it, I'd understand. But outside of Game 4 and maybe small periods in Games 1-2, they have mostly neglected the intensity on defense. In which case, as much as we hate it, BOMBS AWAY, put Hauser in there as a sharpshooter

Why is he playing at all? Seriously? Are we trying to end his career? Use the depth we have. Donít IT him.
Yeah, it's not like Brogdon is helping us out there. He is stinking up the joint. Bench him.

Play Hauser instead.

Probably because he can still defend. Hauser and Pritchard get cooked by Butler every time they play in this series

Brogdon's defense has been atrocious. If he was still playing solid D, I could live with the bad offense. It is his defense that is killing me.

Brogdon is playing worse defence than PP did when he got time

Brogdon has a decent physique, but can't play good defense. He's pretty lousy on that part. That's why he's better suited as that offensive spark from the bench than as a starter. He's our worst defender of our core.

When given consistent minutes I think Pritchard would prove to be a better defender and in a variety of ways be better. Unfortunately for Pritchard (in contrast to Brogdon) he lacks the driving ability and length to finish at the rim that's so vital for a guard.

Why we have been playing such a tight rotation for so long baffles me. Pritchard, Hauser, Muscala and Griffin are all ready for minutes. Any other team would play them.

Play Pritchard, he came up big for us last year in game 7 vs the Bucks.

Play Pritchard all out. Let him ball hawk on one side and push the ball up the floor on the other side. Push, push, push...

I was going to mention this, there have been rumblings about JB as well....but just playing through it.

Oh, that's why he threw PP in there in game one.

The more Marcus Smart feels responsible for picking up the scoring load, the worse I feel about the Celtics offense.

Why are we playing an injured Brogdon - one of our most important guys for the future ?
Because our head coach does not know what he is doing.

Does he even work as a decoy out there?
