i do think is a much better playoff series coach than regular season
and i think that's because he plays strictly from matchups. and then of course, you play them more than once, you start to understand certain things

and whle we overachieved last year, i think, for a team with a broken PP, Ray, Steamer...we were close to ECF. I mean...we won 3.5 quarters of game 6. then something happened...I have no clue what. It just stopped.

but my point was even tho that happened, we went 6 games with a wack ATL and 7 with the sixers. smh.

i'd be a tinch happier if he utilized the talent before we had an opp to go sub500. i don't think team should've ever been sub 500 unless we lost our first game. we were, as constructed, easily 2 or 3...when Rondo goes down, 3-5. no reason we should be fighting for #7 but we are.

  There were various reasons that we were struggling (injuries, people missing rotations on defense, too many players with inconsistent roles/minutes) that would have eventually gone away, in fact most of them have already. Doc was coaching to get the team ready for the playoffs, not necessarily to win as many games as possible during the season.

So can we give Doc credit for a smart change up last night in the Warriors game with the zone?  Or was that Thibs again somehow?
