I'm more worried about the defense Morris, Rozier, Brown and Al were pretty bad. Tatum gave up a few easy ones as well. If Bucks can't score the team gets more fast breaks and easier baskets.

Pace, defense and rebounding are key.
Trade deadline mock team: Celtics,
Irving, Rozier, Wanna
Smart, Brown, Dozier
Morris, Hayward, Semi
Tatum, Theis, Yab
Horford, Baynes, Williams

to me the game plan has to be pretty simple.

Feed the paint

When Giannis is playing center the Cs must feed Al on the block

When and if Zeller gets any minutes Monroe needs to be on the court and fed the ball

The Cs need to use the post game to create open shots. The bucks are a capable switching team and that is giving the Cs issues on offense. Forcing double teams will put the pressure back on the Bucks.


prediction

Al Horford is going to have his best game as a Cetlic

Marcus Smart has at least 3 "holy ****" plays in the 4th quarter

Cs win by 5

We need to take care of the ball. We can't let the Bucks get running in transition.

Hopefully the Garden will be loud enough to throw the Bucks off their game!
I'm bitter.

Keys to a win tonight:
1. get off to another great start --> can't let Bucks think they can win if they break the cycle of our good starts
2. hold the line in the second quarter --> break THAT cycle which has given the Bucks confidence in the other games.

-Must have good shooting night from 3 of these 4 guys: Brown, Tatum, Morris and Rozier.  Not sure we can withstand Bucks if 2 of these guys are missing shots tonight never mind if more than 2 are.
-Al will likely have to put up an 18/10/8 night -- be Mr Everything.
-Smart will need to impact the game like Game 5 Smart and not Game 6 Smart.

not expecting a fair shake from the refs regarding the Bucks pushing and shoving C's on their drives and even less evenhanded officiating regarding Giannis' traveling and charging into defenders.

This is the game where you hope Smart has shaken off enough offensive rust to be a factor at that end of the court.  He's a better option than Larkin due to his size but he's going to have to make a few shots because they're going to leave him open

The fact we got this to a game 7 without our best 2 players and playing 5 v 8 blows my mind. I wagered all my TPs in another thread so I'll be fully invested, screaming at my TV. I feel like it works even if my neighbors and wife don't :D

How to keep myself occupied til tip off! Love game sevenís and this one will be insane!! Fans need to rip the roof off tonight with excitement-

Keys to winning
1. Rozier needs over 15 pts
2. Semi needs his defensive mojo on Freak
3. Smart needs super D and breathtaking energy
4. Smart needs to only shoot wide open shots
5. Big Al needs big game- 15 pt min with 10 plus boards
6. Brown needs to get into 20ís and be ready to take over 4th and go toe to toe with Freak
7. Stevens needs to switch up D in second half to throw them off
8. Tatum needs to ramp up energy and be fearless
9. Morris needs to knock down open shots

My prediction
Celtics 111
Bucks 98
