We've gone to the ECF 3 of the last 4 years and our best player is 23. If only the owners would let him tank I wouldn't have much of an issue with how the team is run.

Their two superstars are overrated; they just have a brilliant coach!

Embiid ain’t overrated. Boston just isn’t tough enough s and. Kemba’s and Brown’s shots today were awful.

We also can’t get to foul line.

It's almost as if they have a coach who keeps players accountable on the court!

Maybe Fournier would have helped keep the ball moving more if he played. The Jays and Kemba really have terrible facilitating skills and decision-making. Smart has his moments, but he played way too loose tonight which is something you can't do against the league's top defense.

Guess we'll have to kill the Bucks instead 8-)

To be fair, there were a lot of possessions where our stars didn't make the pop pass that was obviously going to be there from the beginning. Jaylen was seconds late on multiple opportunities.

Brad having the starters in to finish the game is pure punishment.

Embiid is massively overrated. You put him up against any centre who can defend i.e. Gasol, Horford and he goes quiet. He is just lucky in that he plays in an era where there are not a lot of good defensive big men.

Lmao at this excuse. This team is firmly behind Brooklyn, Philly and Miami. And I have more faith in Masai bringing the Raptors back into shape than Danny bou. And by the way, did you notice that the Cs are LAST in their own DIVISION? This ECF thing is a joke because Philly has an ACTUAL coach, Brooklyn has THREE superstars. Wake the **** up!

Don’t worry Ainge has another 6’2” guy coming with the 15th pick this draft

In the last 7 Drafts Ainge has selected Nesmith, Romeo, Rob, Tatum, Brown, Rozier, and Smart. Miss me with that ****. You're mad because he took Carsen Edwards/Tremont Waters with late firsts/second rounders? Go through like every Draft ever. Most late picks don't amount to anything

Celtics are playing with a 6’6” power forward (G Williams) and 3 G League centers (Fall, Kornet and Wagner).

Thank you Danny Ainge!

Another thing I cannot understand is why Brad does not work more plays that result in spot up shots for Tatum and Brown. They are both knock down shooters in those sorts of situations.

He's really good. Man does he know how to draw fouls. Breath on him and it's a trip to the line.
