Both him and Ojeleye, neither really did anything in the 1st quarter when they got mins to Brad sat them both the rest of the game.

Too bad he didn't also sit Grant..

This could've been PP's time for a VC but he was robbed with this AOS game!

Legit, nobodies after that. Not limited pieces. Guys who do not belong. We saw that tonight, when those role players were badly exposed

Allowing Marcus to shoot 17 times is instant termination in my mind. Unacceptable. Half his shots go to Pritchard and we win.

We all know they’re going to come out and look great tomorrow, then suck again a few days later.

I agree but doesn't stop Brad from trying to play everyone including the ball boys whenever possible!

Pritchard was great, and Jaylen mostly didn’t try to do too much, while having to do too much tonight.

I would add Romeo to that list. Which would give us 9 NBA caliber players, more than enough to have a good rotation. The problem is that Brad thinks Grant is Robert Horry and Semi is Bruce Bowen. Put those guys next to Tremont and Carsen on the bench and the team is instantly better.

I'd say "skill" rather than talent. There are a few guys who should surprise nobody if they still develop, including:
-- Clangford
-- Nesmith
-- Kornet
-- Parker

I'll be reading your takes in the morning over coffee. We're in big trouble. We all saw a lot of serious sad sack losses this year, but this one was a flat out nut punch. It's NOT a lack of talent. Our guys can play. We've all seen it. Hell even Edwards and Waters can win you a game. Tonight's game would've been hilariously bad if we didn't care so much. I'm sick of it. :nonono:

I just don't believe the Celts will get to the finals with Marcus Smart.

He's just too unreliable.

It's looking like Celtic fans must a few more seasons before the Celts will be in a position to win a championship.

They will always be in the hunt every season, but the low basketball IQ has to stop for them to get to the next level.

Celts are not playing the right way and the #1 culprit is the heart and soul, Marcus Smart.

The leader has to lead by example.

Brown and Pritchard tried to keep us in the game.

Smart and Fournier right their best to make sure we lost.

TT is such a bad NBA player. I wish he was playing for another team next year. Good thing is he got in foul trouble and Kornet got to play and was solid.

Fournier is struggling since coming back from covid. Almost everything he has shot has been short.

I feel like this team is going to get it together in the last 2 weeks of the season.

It all will depend on all our top 7 players playing together and staying healthy. That will be our only chance to make a play run like last season.

Seems like up until this point we have had at least 2 of our top 7 players out every game. And during those games, we have had another 1 to 2 going rusty due to coming back from injury or illness.

That's surely what Brad has decided to gamble on. Rest them in some games; don't push them in practice; just get their bodies in the best possible shape and hope the mental part follows almost immediately.

That said -- Brad needs to tell and convince these guys that it's better to make an aggressive challenge and risk getting beaten badly than it is to hang back and do nothing at all.

This team is an embarrassing pile of ****.

Brad Stevens can go suck his mom. Every game that this **** **** starts Semi Ojeleye is basically an automatic L because the guy is simply one of the worst basketball players to ever step foot in an NBA game.

**** everything. I hope they miss the playoffs. Team simply doesn't have any toughness or any pride. You wtach a bunch of nobodies light fire to the nets and guys like Smart and Fournier can't make a damn open shot. **** sickening.

They also absolutely disrespect the game. Effort wise they bring it when they want to bring it, they keep resting guys for no reason..

Hate this team so much it's not even funny.
