Brad's a good coach defensively, but he's flat out an awful offensive coach. He simply can't allow Morris and Rozier to keep jacking up shots no matter how many they miss while Jaylen and Jayson stand and watch. Simply unacceptable. I'm beginning to believe he's peaked.

small.

lineups.

suck.

A lot of people oddly think the Celtics should play more small lineups and ditch the bigger lineups altogether.

Gave this game away because we just  had to hot dog it with dumb threes in crunch time. Disappointing.

Can’t come out in the first half and get down 26 because you are going through the motions

No, but after you've closed the gap to two, whether you were down or not is irrelevant. In a two-point game, the Celtics decided to take heat checks and bad shots, and generally ran around like headless chickens on offense. It's a miracle my TV survived when we passed over a 3-on-1 fast break to opt for two Rozier three-pointers.

Which is weird considering their best lineups are with Horford and Baynes.  That's why they signed Monroe and not another guard.

Let me get my oven mitts on again for that take.

There isn't anything particularly hot about that take. Brad S has consistently failed to exploit opponent weaknesses, failed to call timely TOs, and is generally running an offense that doesn't look particularly adept at getting a good shot when it needs one.

It seems like teams have a new strategy on defending Kyrie and it seems to work. They are attacking him out high and double teaming off screens, being physical with him and he still tries to dribble like Marcus Haynes around them and often times is turned over or results in a desperation shot.

Last night the Alpha Dog Oladipo kicked our butts hitting outside shots, dunking on us, 5 steals - it was just an all star performance.

Our offense could not get going. There was no flow to it, no spacing or swinging the ball. When I see Baynes shooting 3s I should probably stop watching at that point because he is o Amir Johnson.

I'm sorry but Nader is horrible. They really need to keep him out of the rotation.

We have to stop digging the 20+ point deficits by halftime. We can't come back from them all. They play pretty poorly at home lately. What's the deal?

We HAVE to play better tomorrow - much better.


Flop tough guy

Yeah, I don’t think you know what a “hot take” is....

They are terrible. The East is still a big conference. The top teams still play huge. Jonas V, Polish Hammer, Turner, Embiid. We trot 5 SFs out there and chuck threes..

More “Brad-pologism” after last night’s game, I see. It’s becoming so commonplace around here that it probably deserves its own Wiki entry:

“Brad-pologism - an irrational defense mechanism of Celtics fans to protect their fabled coach from any sort of criticism, regardless of those critiques’ merit. This behavior usually occurs within the subsequent 24 hours of Celtics losses that Stevens’ decision-making is called into question, specifically surrounding rotation decisions and timeout and offensive set calling.”
