Tough to score the basketball with only two worthy scorers.

This is honestly the worst Celtics team from a roster construction standpoint that I've seen in years. At least when we lost KG and PP we had the Smart, Bradley, and Crowder defensive wing play along with a deep bench. Now our team is really just Tatum, Brown, Smart, and some rookies.

I suspect that chemistry is the big problem with this team right now, but man, games like this make me think we just might not be very good.

We look like a lottery team right now tbh

Defense is clearly optional in this game
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

Nice to see some team offense

R Williams giving us some good ball right now.  I'd love to see him become a guy we can go to for 25-30 minutes per game as the season goes on.

No wonder players are scoring 30 ppg it's because you can't play physical defense anymore. PP plays basically perfect defense and gets some trash weak call against him.

Yeah that was a terrible call.  He did exactly what you're supposed to do and the refs punish him for it.

Jayson has had some really great passes in this game. Not forcing anything, just making good reads.

If there's one thing that is p---ing me off on Brad, it's that Robert Williams isn't starting and getting that 25-30 minutes per game. He's a better shotblocker than TT, he's a better shooter(obviously we don't want him pulling up or anything) than TT, a better passer than TT, and overall way more explosive. I have no idea why he's not starting and getting more minutes. If there were a season to let Robert Williams figure it out this is the one imo.

We are not very good. Losing a borderline All Star in Hayward does that.

I like Pritchard bringing the ball up.

Why are the Pistons doubling Tristan Thompson?

Good question.
