Win on Tuesday and i am a believer.

Oddly or not, I think they might win. I don't expect them to open a big lead on philly, so they'll need to be active the full 48 minutes. Could be just the opposite of the last 2 games: they fall behind by 15 points and them comeback. Maybe we have a bipolar team
I can see that...
Sixers offense looked very good vs the Lakers.

Lol good call.

I'll admit I was probably wrong saying we hit rock bottom after the Clips loss but I'm happy about it!

True but falling for it every single time and  being unable to stay calm and evaluate the situation is not a very good sign

That's true, but I'd say rumors of our demise were greatly exaggerated  8)

12-3 in the last 15 games. 27-11 since the bad start (a 58 win pace). If they maintain the pace they've been on since the 10-10 start, they'll go 17-7 the rest of the way and finish with 54 wins, which is quite a bit less than my prediction but after the season they've had, that's pretty good.

I donít think this is rock bottom. We can go lower.

lower than losing to a buzzer beater by Rondo on a Laker team that the Cs led by 18 points at one point and 6  points with a minute to go AND then to lose to a Clipper team led by a coach that did not want to coach the Cs after leading at one point by 28 pts? Lower than that???

I think last night's stinkbomb in Chicago qualifies as even lower. The Bulls - the freaking Bulls - dropped 126 points on our "elite" defense.  The Lakers and Clippers are at least in playoff contention in the West. We lost to a doormat, and weren't ever a serious threat to win.

Struggling to remember a Celtics team that was this inconsistent.

I'd rather listen to a broken record than this.

I donít remember which year it was, but the first half of the season in which we acquired IT was pretty bad.

Not rock bottom. At this point I feel like we say this once a week with this team. They play up/down to opponents. Against bad teams they just donít show up. Against elite teams they look elite.

At this point, for me at least, just get to the playoffs healthy. At least there I know they will bring it every night.

I hope so. I have given up predicting what this team will do on any given night. I could see us going to the Finals or flaming out in a first-round upset.

I sorta feel the same way. Either this team is going to shock everyone and make it to the finals or they're going to get bounced in the 1st round. That would truly be rock bottom. It's quite possible this team is built more for the playoffs.

Until then, unfortunately we are going to have to take the good with the bad during these final 21 regular season games.
This does sorta resemble the 2009-10 season. Too much talent, yet underachieving results. Maybe they just aren't taking the regular season as seriously as they should.
