Am I the only one that feels Herro was in the wrong? Nurkic set a screen. And sure it didn't feel good for Tyler. He went down hard. But, push a big guy like Nurkic in his back wtf does Tyler expect? Then Herro acting like he's going to do something about it with him. LMAO :nonono:

If we can get reliable bench production and rebounding and interior defense holds up I don't think many teams would want to face us.

Demar up there in all star voting! Finally the fans see who the best in the league really is
2019 Eastern Conference All Stars

Derozan
Lowry
Ibaka
Valanciunas
Van Vleet
Delon Wright
Lebron
Embiid

There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

LMAO Celtics are three games below 500 almost halfway through the season.

RJ!! Damn that was a good game at the end. Not gonna lie, RJ + Boston losing dramatically made me cheer pretty hard when that shot went in.
For lease.

I was having myself a stressful day and needed to just hit the reset button and find some joy in the world.

The only option I could come up with was run myself a hot bath, settle into a few cold beers, and watch the Celtics / Knicks game with hope that the basketball gods would throw me a bone and let Boston continue to implode.

Well... thank you cheap bubble bath, cold beers, and basketball gods.

That was a very enjoyable way to turn my day around.

More like the team stinks. At least they'll lead the league in team meetings. Brad Stevens is a joke.

DeMar's season is rewriting the narrative of your last twelve years on the board, the way the last few minutes of "The Usual Suspects" totally flipped the script.

Udoka been awful all year. Zero offensive structure and poor rotations. Its all one on one play. He took a page out of Casey 16/17 raptors. And now putting blame on players post game lol. Up 25 and losing is on him just as much as players. Hes been awful.

It's even more enjoyable when you read their post-game Ass of Shame thread.

They were the same last year in offensive structure and rotations. There's only so much Udoka can do knowing his boss was the coach last year, and there's only so much the players will listen to Udoka knowing that Stevens is still in charge and they got away with the same garbage under Stevens so they just collect their cheques and pay lip service.
