Tonight's story: Ty finally found the combinations that worked but after they clawed their way back, they ran out of gas.

Mann [plus+16] and Bledsoe [a double-double: 18 points, 10 assists plus 5 rebs] played 36-37 minutes each and carried the load along with Boston's 18 points in 33.

Zubac had a great night [17 and 11] but tired late and actually finished at minus-4; Batum put in 30 minutes but finished with only 4 points and 2 rebs @ an uncharacteristic minus-9. Serge put in 19 okay minutes as did Coffey; Keon and especially Winslow were ass. Kennard had foul trouble and was never in the game [minus-10].


I dunno what happened on the last play, but the other 4 guys left the rookie out there alone on an island. Shame on THEM. :x

Batum was wide open in the corner but Boston had tunnel vision to shoot it. I'm happy he wanted the shot, but he has to have some court awareness

or Morris... or Kawhi.

Though Loss but I would rather be stay happy for rooks on their positive showcase.

Hell of a 3rd quarter from the team. Didn't really get that closing lineup from Lue. Zu finally bodied up Jokic better than he normally does. Good to see Coffey finding his game and Boston getting back on track. In all we just needed three buckets from Kennard to fall, two from Mann and maybe two buckets from Batum and we win this game. This team could become fun to watch if Lue finds the right lineups. Lets cut down these Nets tomorrow

I think Boston's upside is high but even the college game was too fast for him last year, so it's going to take time for him in the NBA. But as long as he listens to the staff and watches the film, he'll get better and slowly play smarter.

Without PG it's going to be harder for him to slip under the radar and get those breakout-type games, so I'm not going to judge him too harshly over the next month. He's gonna get the minutes this year ready or not, and hopefully by the end of the season it will have made a difference in his development.
