Pretty annoying that he didn't get a shot the whole 2nd quarter until LeBron came back...

C'mon man it's far more than just Rondo. I know you hate the guy...

It's really not. Rondo is the common denominator and pretty much everyone sees it. He is really really bad.

Is NO trying to not have Ingram on the floor with LeBron?

So... a few nights ago it was KCP... then it was Bradley.... now it's Green. I guess as long as one of them is having a good game it's OK but it would be nice to see some consistency.

Second unit wasn't great defensively so we put the starters back in and guess what... they are sucking defensively.

Said it before the game, he has to use up all his energy and attack while Lebron is out, he can’t do anything against him. The strength difference is just too much for Ingram to use his little shoulder bumps to get space like he does everyone else.

18 points by the bench in a fairly short run and the team has only 4 TO's. Let's hope these trends continue.

If it's possible to sleep walk to a 15 point lead we're doing it.

.... or a 24 point lead.

This has got to be the easiest 40 piece AD has ever gotten.

Rondo checks in and we give up a 7-0 run

Seriously, there's no movement towards the basket

Looks like Josh Hart is just trying to bulldoze through AD

and then acted like it was a horrible call. He flat out put his shoulder into Davis as he ran by.

Damnit, we just need 4-6 minutes of holding the lead
