Are we the only team that gets these travel calls every game?

Tatum doesn't get the same number of steps as Giannis. Maybe when he is a superstar.

Rozier and Morris are anti-ball movement.

Another possession, another instance of Rozier dribbling the ball for 20 seconds before jacking up a contested shot with no pass.  ::)

Morris is making shots but Rozier is not.

This team would be incredible if we could just eliminate these painfully long stretches where we struggle to score the ball.

Irving being in foul trouble obviously doesn't help.

Only seems that way because GA stride 3x as long.

And when he reaches Lebron's status, he won't be required to dribble at all.

Is Smart the best in the league at drawing charges?

Yes, yes he is
Yes if you are a Celtics fan.

Smart and Rozier 2 for 8 from the field...

Rozier and Morris are anti-ball movement.

Two main differences:
1) Morris makes his shots;
2) Morris also contributes elsewhere, too (defensively).

That's my main problem with Rozier - he's pretty much useless outside of an occasional iso scorer due to his lack of BBIQ and playmaking/defensive abilities.

EDIT: I guess he is a good guard rebounder, but I seriously do struggle to identify any other strength of his from a skills standpoint.

I was literally just about to write this. I swear giannis takes one step from the 3 pnt line and he is under the basket.

Meh....Tatum has long strides too. The Greek Freak gets the benefit of 3-5 travels a game.

Rozier should not be the one dribbling the clock out waiting for a last shot.  They have plenty of guys who should do that ahead of him.

I'm most disappointed with Rozier's lack of progression in pick and roll play.  He has the speed and ballhandling to do more, but his poor court vision and subpar passing skills really hurt him.  He can't "see" how plays are going to develop.

I hope as the season progresses they move Rozier primarily off the ball.  Smart or Hayward should be handling it more often if Irving isn't on the floor.  Tatum could use more PnR reps too.  All would be preferred over Rozier.
