The only thing that's different from last year is Hayward.

Brown and Tatum really upped their games after Kyrie went down as did Rozier.  I think those guys are struggling to figure out their roles now regardless of whether Hayward is in the game or not.

And this season, we can't shoot which is the true problem.  Not lack of big production, not players coming back, shots are not falling.....

the open shots not falling is an issue. the taking poor pull up contested jump shots is probably the reason the open shots aren't falling... and it's caught up with us.

what's worse is we continue to encourage taking poor pull up contested jump shots.

The Celtics lead the league in wide open three pointers, no defender within 6 feet. They have been awful on those shots. Contested jumpers are not a problem. Missing wide open shots and layups are.

Teams are real happy to let Gordon, Semi, Smart, Baynes have wide open threes.

None of whom are in our top 5 for 3PA per game

I watch every game and this simply is not true.   We MISS OPEN SHOTS.

Yeah, we are simply cold. Periods like the first half against Phoenix are examples of that

I think what needs to happen is this team needs to get blown out. Concede a 20 point lead in the 1st half and lose by 40. That will teach them that you can't always come back if you go down big and you need to be desperate from the opening tip off.

Hayward has to play better. Without him, it will be hard to win games at the playoffs
kyrie Irving is one of the best NBA players!
