We looked great in the first half with Bradley and Collins out there - the defense was really solid.  Seems Bradley would force his assignment towards the baseline where they would run in to the giant tree that is Collins.

Collins was very active with both his hands and his movement in that first half too.

He may not get any offensive production, but I wouldn't mind seing him out there with Bradley again.

Happy to see Bradley playing, but the guy needs a couple of weeks to shake off the rust. He looks ok physically, though, and that's great after double shoulder surgery.

Our D looks a bit better, but our offense is awful. Rondo is hurt and still doesn't care a lot about these games. Please Doc, rest our star PG.

As good as TA looks, the guy got a lot of heat around here... still a fan of him, but he wanted to go elsewhere, so, more power to him. Bradley will look a lot better in a couple of weeks.

Go Celtics, move the ball and play D.

Pierce is trying to stay hot. KG being cold and all. Who should shoot? Collins?
Rondo needs to create more in these situations. Either as a scorer or a passer.

Dribble penetration. Get into the paint.

Agreed. id love to see him in the paint then kick out. Do you think he is trying to dial down the assists at all? Maybe score more yet the hip is holding him back? I like seeing Avery back.
I'm not sure whether Rondo is playing tentative or whether it's his injury.

He started the game great and the team responded to that. From that point on though, he was much less of a threat going to the basket.

Having Collins in the starting lineup kills us.. So slow on both ends of the floor.. Allows help defense for whoever is guarding him which hurts Rondo Pierce and KG.. Please Danny make a move soon

Actually he started the game with a turnover.
The Celtic in me.

I'm not watching the game, but I find it hard to believe Bradley has been so useful in a game in which Mike Conley is single-handedly killing us.

It looks like Cousins is on a tear since coming back.

15, 10 and 5 in his first game back. Then the triple double against us. 21 and 14 the next night against Detroit. And he already has 18 and 14 midway through the third tonight against Cleveland.

The defense does suck. Looks like this is going to be another 100+ point game for our opponent.

stupid shot taking also when everybody is cold on jumpers. why not attack? is doc even telling them this? jeebus, i mean really is it that hard doc to spot?

We must be watching a different game.  RR , PP, JT, BB have all taken it to the hoop.  Memphis is a good def team.  Why does every poor shot selection by kg come back on Doc?   Getting kind of tired of the piling on to Doc Rivers.

Avery is good. Even back from an injury he instantly looks like good ole' Avery.

Well Conley had 5 straight points on Jet not Bradley.  AB's def on Conley was good.

I feel as if TA used to be the worst shooter ever. Good for him being not as awful.
