Not Doc's fault.

C's just need time to gel with all of the new pieces.

Jeff had an article a few days ago on the blog main page about giving BOS 20 games - I can go with that.

Yea I think 20-25 is a fair expectation for them to have some cohesiveness. They won't be perfect but should be considerably better, but people love to overreact so everybody will continue to bring up wild trade ideas and point fingers

Cohesion is overrated.  Was cohesion a problem when KG had to learn a new position and Bass/Bradley were forced into the starting lineup?

I'm pretty sure our guys would've traded all that cohesion they built in the second half of the season in order to peak in playoffs instead of post all-star break when that lineup was first formed.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

After tonight, yes.

Bass and Sully?

Rondo not playing with 4 of the numerous fast and/or athletic players we have?

We have 4 guys who were on the roster last year, and 8 who were not.

Every single lineup we have on the floor right now consists of a set of players - in some cases, 3, 4 or even 5 - who have played a total of 4 NBA games together, and probably a total of 20-60 minutes together on an NBA court.

Or, put another way: at NO point this year have the Celtics fielded a lineup that was on the court for even one minute last year.

Dallas has 9 ne players and is missing its best player. They were 4-1 before last night.

Sullinger should not be playing. Start Wilcox please.

If you're gonna give doc credit when we win then he better get the blame when we lose. Its only 5 games in and im already sick and tired of defending this team. I was fine going 0-2 but tonight p---ed me off. I'm not ready to panic but im done defending this team until they show me something, period.

Doc has become to dependent on small ball.  When KG is subbed out in the beginning of the game, any momentum the team may have gets stopped by paring Sully and Bass. That combo does not work now and I don't believe it ever will. The C's need to keep size on the floor at all times to protect the rim. Either continue to bring Wilcox in or let Darko get minutes subbing for KG. however; the bass/sully combo should not continue to get playing time together.

Mostly docs fault. Sketchy rotations. Terrible offensive sets. Not playing any big guys. No inside presence.
CB Draft 2016:
PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell
PF:Dirk Nowitzki/JaMychal Green
C: Deandre Jordan/Roy Hibbert/Alex Len

have more patience guys. Doc is doing a great job with all these new players. I'm fine with the loss today. And you know why?

Our bench scored 33 points tonight. The way I take it is, that our offense looks like is coming together slowly and its coming along just nicely. Jason Terry looks like he's finally in the groove. Of course Green still needs more improvement.

Also, our defense just needs to come along. Which is fine. They are still a work in progress. You can fix two holes at once. Our defense will come along.

I trust doc, and he's doing a great job. Baby steps man. I think our offense looks good so far, now time to work on our defense.

We can do this!
