Um why tho?

You keep protecting Brad and coming to his defense, but these are the kinds of mind-boggling decisions that make us frustrated with him. At the very least a walk through with how to better attack this zone is warranted, but no he just folds his arms and accepts things are the way they are. It's like he's just ready to go home.

Boston need to go with Grant Williams at the 5. Put JB on Herro. Switch the pick and roll, that will take away the Bam dive.

I agree. Cant believe Brad had to bring back Theis. Dragic had his way with him (switches)

Just because I disagreed with replacing him with retreads and said that we should wait until the series is over to talk about it doesn't mean I'm "protecting him". Get a hold of yourself, for god's sake.

[Malika Andrews] Marcus Smart is screaming at someone in the Celtics locker room or several people. The yelling continues as Smart exits the locker room, swearing.

I'm thinking this is so they can just fully rest, and maybe do a film session together? IDK.

Hope it works.

Absolutely disgusted about how it goes... But I still believe we can win.
A lot of negativity on posting here and a lot of negativity, lack of matirity also on our team. Also incredible partial whistle. Bad choice of Brad. Crowder and Dragic incredibly at their carreer pic during this playoffs. This led us to choke this two games. But with all this negativs things we were still in possibilty to close both games... They won it only with momentum and will...
The buble life and competition has given the Heat an incredible momentum. 10-1 now... Everything is going on their side. Clutch all time with many different players... You know this can still turn, but we need to give evtgh next 2 games

I can see reason of some reproach ag Brad or this team... But man don't forget what the expectetions were for this season... Don't forget the level of our bench (wich will improve). And don't forget it's not over. This strange decision not training tomorow may have good consequences; if all the players and CBS find the key to give more agressivity and maturity in the game. Remember we were not real contender. We are like Heat, an outsider that have a bg chance. Focus on what we controll. Give everything.
Be 100% the next 5 games. Hope the refs will be a little better... And we can still do it. This bubles lead to so much strange and crazy things... Even at 3-0 I would still have a little hope.

AS USUAL....this game was LOST with 2 minutes to go in the 2nd....17 point lead...and the C's RELAX and walk the ball up the court---to waste 4 straight possessions...instead of keeping the lead there or trying to push it over 20---they let Miami off the hook and it's a very manageable 13 point game for the Heat.


Dissssssgusting....BAD coaching.

Yup...there was a noticeable sag in Boston's play level once the lead got to 17.

Can't believe I find myself agreeing with Draymond Green, but I was yelling for this from 2Q onwards.

Grant allows us to switch a lot more aggressively, and is every bit as strong as Theis.

Coincided with us mysteriously benching a red-hot Kemba for the last minute, or minute and a half, in place of Wanamaker. Our offence disappears and they trim the lead, as well as gathering momentum.

Lol really? 20 turnovers, some missed FTs late, and you have trouble against the zone.

But yeah, down 2-0 lets just skip practice and not try to work on all those issues  ::)

mind boggling...I guess they really don't want to make adjustments
smh

Maybe Brad's worried they'll get into fights if they practice tomorrow
