Interesting way to watch the game that shows why we are losing
« on: December 15, 2012, 11:04:10 PM »
 I have decided lately that I can't stand to sit there and watch the entire game in regular speed and have begun to watch the game in slow fast forward. In games where we aren't playing well I jump it up to 2x fast forward. This is what I learned that I thought was interesting that is why we are losing.
     
Watching in 2x fast forward you are really only seeing the change of scores. This is what I saw. The opponents are consistently scoring throughout the game. There aren't a lot of consecutive trips down the floor where they are not putting points on the board. The Celtics on the other hand are consistently going 3-4 trips up the floor and not putting any points up. We go sometimes 6-7 trips even. Every few minutes we will put a few trips together, but due to the fact that the opposition is putting points up every time, all we really are doing is closing the gap.

In a nutshell, our defense sucks. We can't stop anyone. Especially when we need one at the end of the game. This different way of watching it, because I can't stand to see them play like that, just emphasized that. Try it. Kind of interesting.

That's some deep stuff.  You've discovered a way to watch to watch the games which confirms something about the game that I've long suspected; namely, the team that scores more frequently while stopping the other team from scoring generally wins.

I've discovered that if you hang your TV upside-down while drinking, you'll realize that the Celtics could dominate if they just took the magnets off their shoes.

We have so much more offensive minded and skilled players than we had in previous seasons, but like previous seasons the ball goes to Pierce on almost all offensive possessions.
Doc is not doing a good job utilizing our players.

Exactly, the Point Guard DOMINATED offense is a flawed system which never leads to championships. Sure he gets guys easy baskets, but those same guys are capable of getting themselves easy buckets.  Not every player is a good catch and shoot player, some guys (mainly every wing player on this team) are really good when they can run a pick and roll, catch the ball off a pick and make their own decisions... Courtney Lee has been killed by Rajon Rondo in the half court offense. Tell Rondo to advance the ball more, stop hanging around the perimeter and demanding his teammates to stop what they're doing and get the ball back to him... "dude just shut up and cut to the basket, i think i can handle it."
