Tatum seems to like Kanter screensC's had a pretty good run with Kanter in there. Not that he was great (missed some easy ones under the hoop) but he seemed to be setting a lot of good screens and opening up things for other players. When he went out I just thought it was messing with karma. Tough loss after spending all that energy to come back from 24 down.
Some pretty amazing +/-s. Kanter, as mentioned above, +28. GW +18. Al -29. Marcus -17. DS -14. JT -13.View: https://twitter.com/seangrandepbp/status/1464443181857136640?s=21
72-41 in the midgame. And you lose. Just brutal.
Just for fun, I went backed and watched the possessions after MS put the Cs up 88-81.I thought for sure at 88-81 they had it but just a brutal 4th quarter collapse.
I did it while the stench of the game was still heavy so it wasn't as bad as going back the next day."Just for fun, I went backed and watched the possessions after MS put the Cs up 88-81."
WBCD-you have a warped sense of humor. I was going to jump into those icy waters and watch the final 3 minutes, but didn't have the stomach for the pain.
Although I remember Al's shot that front-rimmed the hoop, and thought, he's played tired all night.
But I'm not going to blame Al, he's tries and has been their most consistent player this year.
But the thing that got me early on in that game, when they were digging their nightly hole, was the 1st qtr non-movement of the Celts on offense. It was if the 4 non-ball guys ran to spots on the perimeter and were bolted there waiting for a pass. It was run over and over again. And maybe I wouldn't be bitching if they hit corner 3s at better than .333, but they haven't been. And maybe they will, but the 3 point shooting so far has been absymal, and I don't know what the fix is.
I like DS, and he's played well, but I think the Celts need a real deal pass first PG and Coach U has to get these guys and the ball moving and creating more than 1 on 5 offense. If the 3s aren't going in, attack the basket and be aggressive, but perimeter ball is failing this team when they only make .1 of 3 3s.
