FRUSTRATING GAME!!!

Spoelstra with the adjustment and CBS overadjusting. It didnít work Brad. Sorry.

Kanter worked so well and Grant was playing well but we donít see them at all. Was Iguodala gonna kill us? Was it Solomon Hill? Also, why go away from Brownís driving game? Why revert to Tatum playmaking? And again, why stop playing Grant? Heís a great matchup against the Heat and heís been on fire from downtown (mainly open corner threes which we were getting against their D). Definitely better than Semiís pathetic 4minutes.

What difference does 4 min make? Itís the length of an OT. Wouldnít we have loved an extra 4 min down the stretch.

No one was stopping Herro tonight but I donít think thatís why we lost. It was poor, lazy offense highlighted by turnovers. The score was a lot closer than the game actually was. We were down 9 with like a minute to go. That we got it down to 3 is a testament to the talent we have.

Just can't win with 19 turnovers.

On to game 5.

Exactly.  The Celtics did not play well enough to win.  And it wasn't like Miami played great (other than Herro).  Everyone shares the blame for this but it was more about the players than the coach.  The Celtics missed a major opportunity.

All I can think of is the Heat drafted a stud in Herro and one pick later we got a guy who's made of glass and can't shoot.

It's always like this...first Giannis and now Herro. Frustrating

It is not always like this.  You guys are over-reacting to a terrible loss (understandably).  If it was "always" like this, we would have drafted Markelle Fultz.  That is just one really obvious example.  Drafting is a crap shoot, especially these days when the players are 19 years old.  No one could have predicted that Herro would play like Steph Curry in a playoff game.  Teams get lucky in the draft sometimes.

I am drained and frustrated with this terrible loss too.  A major missed opportunity that the Celtics pist away with 19 turnovers and generally bad shooting.  Terrible game that they still almost got back into.  They just weren't up to the moment but this is how good teams learn, how young players develop.  What Herro did is very rare in the NBA.

1.1 seconds is enough time to not do a hail mary pass.  Give it someone in the back court...three dribble for a half court heave...even closer if you can get it to someone around half court...

The game was already lost...would it be cool to win on a half court heave? Sure. But pretty trivial thing to pick at...theyíve gotten some good looks on some Hail Mary passes and just simply missed a shot...no problem with it
I think hes referring to the fact that we had 1.1 seconds and were down 3 points and theis for some reason chucked it into the paint when we needed a 3. I was scratching my head as well. Now there definitely wasnt enough time to get 3 dribbles and a shot off but we most certainly could have gotten at least a 3pt attempt. Look at game 2 smart threw it to tatum at the 3pt line and he almost got a decent shot off.
everyone got so sensitive after 9-11... thanks alot bin laden

I wonder if guys like Herro and Duncan Robinson would have such big games if the fans were there. I wonder if fans would actually impact a game like that. Most likely not because Herro looks like he's got no fear but maybe, just maybe, that fear creeps in if the fans are loud enough.
Baby Jesus!

Herro doesn't seem affected by the moment at all. I said it on Reddit, but this must be how teams felt about Rozier in the 2018 playoffs. The guy has the ability to go off from deep, hit from mid-range, and take it to the hoop; but usually not consistently.

And, no this is not a slight on Rozier. Tylerry Rozierro is probably a pretty good comp for him moving forward. And I have to believe this because seeing him as a perennial all-star would hurt too much, knowing how close we were to grabbing him.

Herro was a -4 last night in +/-.  Shows you how worthless a single game stat that can be.

Anyone else notice that Spo abused Walker last night?

Its the same thing Nurse pulled last series

It didn't matter who Walker tried to guard.  That person walked up to set the pick,   with Walker switching onto Dragic or Herro

I like Walker but his defensive shortcomings has been a constant nightmare

Rozier is a terrible comp for Herro. Herro has way more finesse and offensive skill than him. Rozier is just an athlete.

There's no world in which Smart should not have been guarding Herro in the 4th.

He was.

It's even worse when they don't give him that charge call when guys just run over him.

Ainge dogging a lot.  Good for them.  If your players are young mentally itís up to the coach to find that motivation
