    I hate to say it but Josh Richardson could probably contribute in this series

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    I hear what you are saying about the burden he is carrying and the unfair expectations, but the problem is that there are so many times where he seems to beat the defense and just misses the shot. He's missed a number of layups that we've seen him make all season. He has figured some ways to...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Seems like the success of this strategy going forward depends a lot on Klay's health. If this is the new normal, they are in trouble with him occupying a max salary slot. If he can get back to a impact defender, they look a lot different.

    Jaylen Brown, The Vet Years

    I thought Jaylen deserved some love for his performance last night which I thought was one of the best all-around games I've ever seen him play. He was frequently being guarded by Draymond on one end and matching up with Steph on the other but he played with an intensity and aggressiveness that...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Like everyone has said, I thought Tatum was doing an amazing job as a facilitator when his shot wasn't going down. Driving to pass, making reads, etc. But I'm pretty concerned with how he attacked mismatches. The Cs were basically running their whole offense to get the switches they wanted, and...

    Celtics vs. Bucks, Round 2 Discussion

    Tatum has deservedly gotten most of the attention post-game but how about a little love for Smart playing like he had something to prove? 7 assists 0 turnovers, 5/9 for 3 and really helped them pull ahead in the first half. I had a feeling he would press after the terrible ending of game 5, and...

    Celtics vs. Bucks, Round 2 Discussion

    So is the consensus that the Celtics made their run after going small in the 4th? The third quarter felt like it was almost game over, with Giannis getting anything he wanted. I couldn't identify any major change in strategy watching the game but it seems like people here think it was playing...

    5/9/2022 Celtics @ Bucks: Deer Hunter Classic

    Someone probably said it up thread but I thought JB was right to get pissed at him. Looked like Giannis pushed him in the back a little when he was up in the air on that fast break...then tried to buddy up to him

    Celtics vs. Bucks, Round 2 Discussion

    That Pritchard sequence was brutal but the first two were almost desperation shots because the offense could get absolutely nothing going without Tatum (and Smart). Even with the starters I thought a lot of their offensive problems came from lack of penetration due to the combination of shot...
