Great job giving up 40 points in the first quarter. Hopefully they extend Brad for another 6 years. Or maybe give him a lifetime contract.
Even Norman Dale would have a hard time getting wins with this roster.

Along with them shooting the lights out, and the bad D....
When Thompson left the floor we had 6 rebounds and were down 3... we're now down 20 and have 7 rebounds.

Guys, I don't think Marcus Smart or Harrison Barnes or anyone else is saving this team. After hearing Gorman today, and then Wyc's interview with Felger, I thought this team would come out with some fire tonight.

Nope, it's literally the same thing night after night. Jaylen was passing in the first quarter, 4 assists, did what he could, but everyone else looks like they are ready for the weekend.

In fairness, can't expect many rebounds when you're defense doesn't even try to force a missed shot.

The two Jays need to get this team going, and get everybody to be accountable

Brad starting Teague tonight is an all timer.
Why? The starting unit was fine, it was the bench that got TORCHED. Teaguemade some terrible plays, but his overal play has honestly been better than Pritchard who put up a 7 trillion and defended nobody.

In fairness, can't expect many rebounds when you're defense doesn't even try to force a missed shot.
4 of the 6 were offensive including all 3 of Thompson's.

I think that turnover was the result of the Celtic's defense being so discombobulated, the Hawks didn't know which open guy to pass to.

The roster constructed as-is truly is flawed, but not to this degree. At some point executing an assignment and strong effort make a mediocre team into a good one, a good one into a better one...

Great defense, leads to a Tatum transition, he slows it down, never passes and misses another one. Then he absolutely rakes Rondo on the other end instead of playing defense and is fortunate to not get called.

If roster construction was truly the only issue this team has, we should all be rooting for them to end up with a top 5 pick. The problem is that this isn't a bottom 5 NBA team, they are just playing like one night in and night out, and we keep hoping for more.

I know the defense sucks, but how does everyone shoot 80% against us? Seems like some bad luck mixed in there.

Nesmith starting to shoot would be the highlight of the week.

Kemba was clearly the problem with this current team, dumping his salary so teague and pritchard can play more will instantly solve everything

When Tatum said he looked up to Kobe's game, I didn't know he meant post-achilles injury Kobe.

Yeah some of this shooting is unsustainable but still, this is the effort these guys are putting in after Sunday and after last night. Total joke.
