am i the only person that's noticed that when one of the big 3 have a big game or even just the big 3, we almost never win the game?

what's so hard to understand that EVERYONE needs to get touches in order for us to win games?

this was my fear with KG coming back in after such a nice win...straight up making sure we passed him the ball. And then when we are down, it becomes the 2 man game with KG and PP.

It doesn't always suck but I hate the dribbling and the making sure PP gets the ball and everyone else just gets out the way. it's annoying!!!!! I blame the players and I blame Doc. I mean...what's it going to take?

Unfortunately, there's no other go-to-guy on this team.

Pierce and KG are as good as we are going to get.

Lee, Bass, Bradley, Green and Terry are all role players and that is all.

This team is clearly missing a closer who can take over the game when it counts.

I haven't checked the box score, but I seem to recall Bradley and Terry taking and missing a lot of jump shots.

Wow. Pierce is one of the best closers in the game. It isn't even debatable...

here's the problem. everyone thinks there needs to be one go to guy
this entire team we have is 'by committee'
we need to get everyone involved because EVERYONE can contribute in their own way
we don't NEED a go to guy. we need everyone to pass the ball until someone gets open

here's another thing
everyone has a poor time and judging who's on and who's going to turn it on.
i felt like AB just kept chucking because of reasons. I didn't appreciate that.

Jet, however, I thought he took all makeable shots for himself.
I still feel like we're having a poor time trying to get him involved more...but makeable shots

that's great
we don't need to defer to him in quarters 1-3 though. just ball.

What's so frustrating about Bradley's shot is that it almost always looks to be on target, and then falls just short.  Such a tease.

Im not a rocket scientist by any means, but Pierce and KG are by far the top two options. For example, Pierce had 8 assists in less than 32 minutes tonight. Green didn't get one. If you are screaming at Doc for not running the offense thru Green in the fourth quarter. You may want evaluate Jeff Greens game.


Also, do you think they passing it to KG and Pierce because no one else on the team could make a shot?

Frankly, KG and PP should be top 2 options in the fourth quarter
If we play like we play in Phoenix against any and all teams, who's stopping us?

I think EVERYONE (Doc and players included) keep holding on to the past of Paul and KG. They are good now. They were GREAT then.
In addition, we have TONS OF TALENT ON THIS TEAM!! UTILIZE IT!!

2nd half, I thought we'd get to ball movement but Rondo may as well been out there the way we barely advanced the pass and always threw the ball to Pierce. That is not the way we've been winning games. at all.

What kind of offense would you like to see Doc run? The Celtics have resorted to Pierce because  that is there most efficient offense at this time. They ran a free flow offense for the first half of tonights game and they had 6 assists and 6 turnovers at half. The second half they were much better moving the ball around.

The spacing on the floor has to improve in order for the other guys to be max effective and that is not going to happen until Bradley, Lee, Terry, and Bass start knocking down some shots.

Teams that actually defend?

Green should be seeing more 4th quarter minutes.

Yeah, that was going to be my answer.

I don't have a prob with pierce/kg.  They are the best options.  I have a prob with an ineffective bass gettin minutes over green.  Can't believe I'm saying that
