Jaylen was 11-13 at one point early in 2H and is now 12-15. Sorry but the coaching is a train wreck so far.
A complete joke. I love that 95% of Brad’s mental energy is clearly going to finding ways to make 2 bigs work, rather than non galaxy brain stuff like “how can I get ball to good player?”

Assuming Grant hits both of these, will we see something other than a Tatum iso?

Weird to make all these soft calls after Friday's sledgehammer fest.

There's so much time here. Get some good motion. I'd try to get Tatum on the block on a switch and have him operate out of there with 10 seconds or so. Maybe Brown is open on the weakside with the defense collapsing.

Annoying call.

This is the time ISO ball is OK, need to absolutely get the last shot.

Maybe let Tatum/brown do a 2 man game in the last 5 seconds.

A quiet 24 points, 12 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks and 0 TO for Tatum... well besides the game winning shot.

Griffin a shell of himself....what a disaster contract.

Nice play, I didn't realize Detroid had no TO. More flexibility there, any good shot under 3 or 4 seconds is a good play.

Kind of amazing the Celtics are 4-3 to be honest at this point.

Now that was a well executed end of game play to get Tatum a wide open 18 footer. A win is a win but not a particularly encouraging series against the Pistons.

Starting the motion later and letting him get right into his move, much better than what we’ve been seeing.

They finally drew up a mid range shot for the last play.

Ainge has to fix the bench and Stevens needs to stop playing TT and Theis together.

Blake is in the last year of his contract and will almost certainly be traded to a contender at some point this season. He did not look good tonight, but he also made third team All-NBA just two years ago.

can you imagine if didn't play the vast majority of his minutes with 2-BIGs clogging the lane?
Tell me who are the mystery floor speaders? Who gets more time? Teague? Semi? (3 of his 5 3s were tonight) Tell me who needs to play more instead? Watching Jalen Brown highlights somehow Thompson and Theis are in lots of them.

Two bigs isn’t great but I think the problem with this particular combo is that neither of them are quick. Puts everyone out of position when either or both of them are out chasing wings around.
