So, I have July 3rd off and have nothing better to do. Therefore, naturally, I'm playing a bunch of 2K, and doing it as our own beloved Celtics.
Superstar difficulty. My own sliders (which skew defensive). Real Player FG% on shots and free throws. 12 minute quarters.
In place of Terry Rozier, RJ Hunter, and Jordan Mickey, I am using Trey Burke, Jeremy Lamb, and Lou Amundson, respectively.
I traded Evan Turner for Moe Harkless. No other trades.Depth chart
Here's the box score from Game 1 against the Nets.
Most of the game I played with two distinct lineups. I don't like doing 5 man substitutions, but it seemed appropriate with this team. The bench unit played more or less as well as the starters.
Thomas scored 18 in the first half but didn't do much in the second.
The Nets were not a difficult team to beat. Only Lopez and Deron gave me any trouble.
Six players in double figures, and one basket away from a 7th. I like to see that.
