I thought IT had a good handle but he didn't have one like Kyrie.  And IT would just throw himself into the pack and hope he got the foul whistle.  Kyrie is a magician getting to the rim.  IT was a magician when he got there with his shot English.

This is a crucial point. Isaiah was always damaged goods by the playoffs. Irving can get it done without risking injury.

He has had to rethink it all since Gordon went down.  He was supposed to be our point forward floor general.

We're shooting 75% so far and only have a 4 point lead. That is odd.

I have a theory about Kyrie....just my own thoughts. He came into the league very young, before he knew it he had LeBron coming over and taking over the team. A 20 plus year old and a 30 year old. He never got to be "young" on a team. Now he is with guys that are close to his age, and seems happy to be playing with guys that he enjoys. Al is the oldest but not pushy, and they work well together. I think he is happy here.

Yes, that's another good point. And Tatum might have become the sixth man for a good trickle down effect. Morris is out, so Brad is forced to speed track Semi and play Yabs more than he is perhaps ready for.

A friend of Smart's needs to tell him he needs to wait until he's a better shooter to think heat check every time he hits one shot.

How are Mirotic and Portis getting along?  Haven’t heard anything since the incident except Mirotic said he would never play with Portis again.

When Kyrie arrived in Cleveland, LeBron was considered to be the devil incarnate. When LeBron returned, he got prodigal son treatment. That had to be one giant suck pill for Kyrie.

Smart is starting to put together a small sample pool of good shooting games.

I don't get it, though. The Celtics are shooting well, seem to have the effort. It's a home game and yet there's not much of a lead.

I agree and Kyrie's dad played at Boston University. Kyrie has already won a title, hit the big shot, now he is with Al and Brad. Horford has become a better player. Irving will too.

Marcus thinks he's Jordan Crawford give me the damn ball and let me shoot it. Or Marcus Thornton seemed to also hog a lot of shots.

needless to say, this unit isn't getting it done.

That would be Theis, Rozier, Smart, Semi and Tatum.

C's can't afford to have both Smart and Rozier with bad shooting games again.

I think Rozier has been influenced by Kyrie. He seems to be trying fancy tricky dribbles much more this year. Not sure if that is a good thing.....
