Precisely. Rozier never turns the ball over and works well with Marcus Smart. Marcus is racking up assists with less turnovers and shooting less when he isn't feeling it.

Danny can't let too much walk for nothing. I'd go deep into the luxury tax if necessary, then trade for best deals here and there to make back the money. Maintain the chip pile! Danny still has a lot of work to do.

Celts are still struggling to defend those high screens (rolls and pops)

What the heck was that call? Refs don't like Jaylen Brown?

I guess playing good D isn’t allowed anymore.

This is not a scoring drought. You actually have to be scoring to have a drought

I see a team with no desire to play. I think they already left the building.

At start of the 2nd half if no energy I would clear the bench. Put Williams and Semi in and anyone else that agrees to get out there and play.

Elite Kyrie Irving does not make his teammates better. I'm saying he's more of a second or third best player to have on a championship, Hayward is too slow for at least now, Horford is looking old lately. Maybe he has the flu. He's getting a few good blocks, but his shot is off and he often has that rookie year Olynyk aura looks like a rag doll in over his head. But maybe that was Brad's fault.

I hope we are not going rehash the Kyrie Irving thing considering the whole team sucks to night.

Guys have to do their job.

I do not want to even look at the stats.

Maybe Brad should let them get beat by 40.

A 17 point deficit isn't that much. The Celtics need to speed it up. Hayward needs to be benched. Brad always seemed quicker at making the most obvious lineup moves. Give Hayward a bench role for one year. Why try to crunch him into the front line Big Three heroism role? He can't do it right now. He's jamming up the flow. He is a Hall of Fame right now but only if it's back to the future 1950's he's dunking over Mikan.

Draper drives me nuts, he rides with the wind. You can tell he I a Comcast employee, not paid by the Celtics.   He starts that fake arguing, yelling all the time and hasn’t got a clue

I hope it doesn’t come to that, but agree it may be necessary unfortunately.

Irving has three assists with two turnovers, maybe one of those wasn't his fault. It seemed like Hayward's fault. Kyrie can't get it going Rondo style. When the effort is there, I am okay with his defense. It's not just him- of course the whole team except for a few are not doing what they should. Tatum and Brown have been huge letdowns so far. But easier home games are on the horizon. Cleveland went to Finals without winning the regular season. It's all about April. The silly season has simply started sooner than usual. It's the equivalent of NBA climate change.

A lot of games have been on ESPN and TNT. So I haven't watched that much of Draper. I can get the pregame but the games are blackout where I am. I've got Boston t.v. tonight.

I sort of like Scal because he is very pro-Rondo and called him a maestro genius. That's a good barometer. I love Rondo. If the C's need offense, then sure. I offered Rozier for Rondo last year. We were talking Tyreke Evans. I remember that. But then Theis and Kyrie got hurt. Last year was a Big Baby good year the one where he ran over the kid in Orlando. The memories. Long-term only Danny can beat Danny.

Fierce forgets about the 2004 Red Sox. No one had ever come back from 0-3.

Ok. Spotting teams a lead is ridiculous. They are so much better than this.  I could scream right now

I almost want to guarantee the Celtics will win this specific game, but I don't want to jinx it. Portland doesn't seem to have a next gear knockout punch.

Third game in four nights, all at the end of a long road trip.

Tatum finding his offense, 22 pts.  I take that back 25.  Got to play defense.  Down to six

They had him trapped in the corner and then they gave him a path to the hoop.

The Celtics for the rest of this are Rocky Balboa. Portland has their hands full.
