I know its a small sample size still it's amazing saw this stat on how good our defense has been.  :o

Quote
In three games this season coming into the game against the Knicks, Boston has starved opposing offenses when Bradley is on the court, allowing just 86.5 points per 100 possessions. How good is that? Indiana has the best defensive rating in the NBA this season at 98.9 points per 100 possessions.

small sample, but against top eastern teams, this is what this team is capable of

Very cool... Just from watching the games it's clear that Bradley's presence on the court has had an impact on the team, it really is infectious.

The intensity they are now playing with is a complete joy to watch.

What's the rating with KG and Bradley on the court?

I was saying it over, and over, and over again...but that is exactly what happened last year when AB went into the starting lineup and Ray was hurt/benched.  We went on an historic defensive tear.

We just might do that again.

His "on the ball pressure" is amazing!
thankfully he's not checking for hernias  ;)

Man, too bad Bradley got hurt last year.  We might have gotten by the Heat.  Injuries have been killing this team since the championship season of '08. >:(  Hopefully we can make it to the playoffs with all key players healthy.

It's not just Bradley. It's rubbed off on Lee a little bit. Our pressure defense will be very unpleasant with Rondo, Bradley, and Lee rotating in the G spots.

This is exactly what I wanted to see from the beginning of the year. Each of the 3 guys taking turns pressuring the ballhandler. Create tempo, take it to the other team. Create turnovers. They can do that. Even without Bradley, they should have been doing it already. But it's nice to see it's starting now. AB is just relentless at the point of attack. And now when he comes off the floor, Lee should be able to pick right up where he left off.
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity...

Agree completely. Even Terry and Barbosa were digging in on defense last.night. playing with Bradley or Lee just looks infectious and allows those guys to be more aggressive.on d

This stat is brilliantly absurd. I have to admit it, I've certainly come around with Bradley. At seasons start he was my number one trade target, but now it is clear to me that he needs to stay and that we are better with him on the floor.
