Post Game Thread - vs Chicago Bulls, Away - PLAYOFF #4

Post by bobheckler on Sun Apr 23, 2017 9:11 pm

TOOK CARE OF BUSINESS!!!


Butler's fritos kept them in the game.  Otherwise this is a blow out.


I'm gonna let the rest of you chime in on this one.

GREAT WIN!!!!  The series hits reset and it's now a 2-out-of-3 series with Boston back in the catbird seat.

Just listened to Hoiberg bitch about Isaiah being allowed to discontinue his dribble time and time again.

If he does so does Butler and Wade.   And Rondo when he played

Regardless as Bob H says.  It's best of 3 now.

Not really surprised it's 2-2 but only how it got there.  I like having the momentum of 2 road wins.

Refs didn't give us many breaks but I do wish we'd keep the mouths shut.  Picking up the T's is not helping.

The Celts as a playoff team is still a work in progress.

I think it will be 1 or 2 more playoff seasons before the Celts can really make a run at a finals berth.

Hopefully the Celts will end up with Markelle Fultz.

Fultz and Thomas in the playoffs in 2019 or 2020 will be fun to watch.

I could not be more proud of this team and especially Isaiah, Gerald Green, and Marcus. Bradley played some good D, but what a consistent disappointment he has been offensively for the past four years in the playoffs.
This was such a high anxiety game for me...when we went down two I was freaking out. Thank God for IT. Glad to see him smiling again. Love his spirit. He absolutely is a keeper.

I think it's time Ainge trades Bradley while he still has value.

I think more than Bradley will be gone. We are in desperate need of a shooter and a rebounder,

Hobert sounded like a jerk complaining about Thomas, especially since his player went to the line a ridiculous amount of times. No one gets fouled that much without some flopping and acting going on. Jerk.

I think Crowder and Bradley will have good value if they're put on the market.

Ainge can also get creative and offer the 2018 Nets pick, but with protection.

The rebounding problem could be solved with the addition of Zizic next season.

And the need for a shooter can be addressed if the Celts end up with Fultz.

Hi,
I didn't know about Hoiberg's complaining about IT4.
2 things came to my mind in that regard. First, if IT was getting all the calls like Butler he could've claimed FT line as his permanent residence. Second, it's a very good sign - Hoiberg doesn't know what to do.

Sinus,

Good point. If he's complaining about IT's "carrying" then he isn't talking about pnrs, their not closing out shooters, their offense being based upon hero ball because they have no back up point guard.

With the exception of Game 2, Al Horford has been damn good in this series. Averaging 14.8 points, 9.5 boards, 5.8 assists.

Was critical of Brad Stevens for random rotations first 2 games. Coach has done everything right since. Hell of an adjustment. #Celtics

Find someone who loves you as much as Gerald Green loves Isaiah Thomas.
