The Celtics tried to get too many switches tonight on offense.  It was just so slow and methodical.  It took forever to get a switch, then to feed the post only to have the Knicks quickly double team and the Celtics hurry the ball to an available shooter with the shot clock going down.  The Knicks didn't have basket protectors and the Celtics should've just tried fanning out and penetrating over and over.  They tried to take advantage of size mismatches and it didn't work and they adjust.

Why do we switch on defense all the time now?  I don't remember all this switching when Garnett was in the lineup.  What's the difference.  This is like pre-Thibideau Doc again.  Doc has to be the most overrated coach.

Preach!

Cs today played a horrible defensive game. Knicks are very good shoting team. They have a great GM who got in 2-3  years great shooters like Jr Smith, Novak, Prigioni etc, instead of Cs GM who is discovering cheap junk in chinese league.

too many new players with dubious NBA credentials ,

I understand that KG is presently on the shelf, but I am still stunned to see a Celtic starting lineup of 6-1, 6-2, 6-7, 6-7 and 6-8.

I played small college basketball 25 years ago and our starters weren't too far off from what the Celtics are currently trotting out there to compete in the NBA.

But Danny wanted to convert his big, physical championship team to a more stylish small-ball group and he has unfortunately succeeded. if memory serves me, we were leading the Eastern Conference when Danny's makeover began - I think we are presently hanging on to the 7th seed for dear life.

This defense is atrocious. And Doc keeps on insting in using small ball, oh well, nothing new here.
