This wasn't the best game for Stevens.

When are you going start demanding at least 10 shots from Horford?

Horford agrees....

Horford is asked if he needs more than 5 shots in a game like this. "I think so...there's no question."

I would also say that this ITs fault too.

Certainly Stevens is at fault for many issues tonight, and IT was a big reason we lost, too.

But Horford is one of the leaders of this team, so he needs to demand the ball more instead of letting IT go out there and chuck up crap all fourth quarter long.

Many of us have been saying this type of basketball isn't going to be sustainable or work in the playoffs, and now the chickens are coming home to roost when the game starts getting serious.

Ugh.  Good night, y'all.  This one hurts.  We had the world on our hands and we let it dissolve into nothingness.  Brad not jumping at the chance to coach Cousins should be a big deal...but i guess i'm one of the only few ppl around here who give a [dang]. 

With a saddened heart, go C's.

Jesus Christ, Horford is so bad on PnR defense. Just completely left Derozan open there.

It's okay, though, cuz he makes up for it with his rebounding. Oh wait ...

Seriously. I've been a big fan and proponent of Al being a Celtic, but he's clearly overpaid for his production. At this point, he's no longer a "star" and is ultimately a high-end, glorified role player.

But we ultimately had to pay him that to get him here, so you can't really complain about that.

What ticks me off is his insistence of playing the PF position when he's clearly a C. He can't guard out on the perimeter to save his life, especially in the PnR. As good as his defensive reputation was from Atlanta, I had no idea that he'd be so absolutely terrible at defending the PnR.

But it's not like Danny has really done anything to get him an actual legitimate frontcourt mate either...

Disappointed to not see him tonight, but I know how Achilles injuries can linger. They are erring on the side of caution so this is a problem only in January/February and not April/May.

We may lose games we shouldn't like the last two, but I rather be healthy once the playoffs begin.

It's starting to remind me of our last long-term Achilles injury:

Not even comparable...10 year age difference.

They're comparable in that they're lingering Achilles injuries that have taken much longer to heal than projected.

Please explain similarities in projections on non-tear achilles injuries for 25 year olds at 180 lbs and 7-footers at 300 lbs in their mid-30's and get back to me.

Yeah, it must be tiring getting a full week off in the mid-late part of the season. Dude better get back to his Mr. 4th Quarter ways soon or he will quickly become trade bait this off-season. Danny isn't going to have a lot of patience for a 5'8" offensive-only player who doesn't efficiently produce.

He wasn't off last week, he was in the all-star game.
