I hate this 1-on-1 or even 1-on-2 iso offense that Brown and Tatum have fallen in love with. There was no reason for that last shot by Brown from the 3-point right wing. Plenty of time left on the clock. Why do we not see players moving and the ball moving like we did in Stevens' early seasons ?

Jaylen's offense this year has just grown significantly where he just knows what he wants to do with the ball and makes it happen.  his midrange game is just so solid now

And the pass to Theis last possession. Heís improved in every facet.

You know a guy is feeling it when the other team just watches him carve'm up.  The defense closes on him, but he has a plan.

A couple of nice assists by Brown.  He wasnít making passes like that in prior seasons.  His handle has improved dramatically which I think helps him make those passes and pull for those mid range shots. It allows him to keep his head up and focus on seeing the court.

Sometimes a good shooting start by the Celts creates over-confidence that produces 3-ball mania and jacking up bad shots.

It still bums me we lost to this Heat team in the playoffs. Had big leads late in two of the games and blew it, and then blew another 4th quarter lead in Game 6.

I will say that they are not without flaw, but,
Pritchard, Semi, Robert, Grant fight together on defense and they have some pride about it. They come out fly around knowing on offense? Tatum or Brown looms large.

I donít mind the uniforms.  I kinda dig them.

But the uniforms + the Miami floor?  Thatís hard to watch.

Fast PP!

Pritchard is the little fundamental!
