Defense, Defense, Defense...... That team didn't have the same level of talent, but every single guy on that bench played defense. From 2 seven footers to Dooling, it was all about defense.

You nailed it with the 2 seven footers who knows their role, play defense.

We need one, badly. And once we get one, things will change, positively.

Why keep pointing at our bench? Our bench plays defense well. It's the starting unit who have been the major problem with this team on both sides of the ball.

Pierce and Garnett were a year younger.

Ray Allen gave us more than Jason Terry has, by far.

Avery Bradley had a really hot month of March / April.

Bass was playing above himself after being made a starter.

The team played hard every night in the second half of the season.

The team took advantage of opponents who stopped trying / started tanking / resting players in the second half of the season and racked up wins that way.

Brandon Bass.
3-PT shooting.

If these two things were better, Pierce would be performing to his standards.

Our 3-PT shooting and mid-range shooting is atrocious. Horrible floor spacing makes it impossible for the rest of the team to do anything.
